Elite! Elite!

outfit details – cardigan: Merona // t-shirt: Teefury (buy similar here) // belt: Xhileration // skirt: Princess by Vera Wang // moccasins: Seychelles // purse: Kate Spade // glasses: Derek Cardigan (buy here)

I’m still trying to get back into the swing of things since coming back home from San Diego yesterday. Even though I only went to Comic-Con for one day I’m completely zonked out by it! I went on Sunday and I remember Sunday being the day that no one really cared to go to because nothing super exciting usually happened panel-wise, but friggin Doctor Who, Breaking Bad, and Supernatural were all at the infamous Hall H (it’s damn near impossible to get into a Hall H panel unless you plan on camping overnight), and that’s a pretty exciting line-up for a Sunday. I decided to ditch Doctor Who — as much as I love the show, I wanted to get the most out of my one day at Comic-Con by exploring the floor to see what was going on rather than spend it waiting in line.

I’ll talk more about my con experience throughout the week! I just wanted to post this cute outfit I wore to the the Neil Gaiman book signing earlier this month. I actually planned this outfit out right after Tim bought the tickets months ago. Is that weird? I can’t be the only person who put together outfits months in advance to wear to special events that aren’t weddings! Anyhow, I really dig the design on my shirt. It was designed by The Atomic Rocket and features a dapper Cyberman rocking a bowler hat, monocle, and a bow tie. There’s a little word bubble by him that says, “Elite! Elite!” (a play on their “Delete! Delete!” catchphrase). It was on Teefury awhile ago, which means that it was only offered for 24 hours, so I immediately bought it! I love the Cybermen, they’re definitely one of my favorite monsters on Doctor Who. I feel like they don’t get as much love as the Daleks do. And Neil Gaiman wrote an episode featuring Cybermen in the latest season of Doctor Who, so it was super appropriate for the signing! 😀

Until next time, kitties!

Cheers,
Nina

The Great Indoors

Today I hung out with my friend, Marquis, who I haven’t seen in a very, very long time, and who I’ve known for a very, very long time (we met in 7th grade which was damn near 12-13 years ago). We drove a few towns over to Manteca to eat at Red Robbins since the one in Stockton shut down a few years ago. Plus there’s really not a whole lot to do in Stockton. We have two malls, both are only one-story and they are right across the street from each other. Isn’t that sad? We eventually ended up going to one of them though. o___0

I saw that the Bass Pro Shop was right across the street from Red Robbins and I was like, “OH MY GOD, CAN WE GO?” That store is like Disneyland for those with a great love for fishing, camping, and hunting. I love none of the former, though I’m interested in going camping again one day, but I went to the one in Rancho Cucamonga last year and I was pretty amused. Did you know you can sit in the boats they have inside? And yes, that store is big enough to hold multiple boats. The store also sells clothes, shoes, jewelry, toys, and it even has an archery range, a couple of shooting arcades, and a fudge shoppe and delicious licorice… and now I’m wondering why I left empty handed. :/

While there, I noticed that parts of my outfit kind of fit in with the store — my plaid shirt and compass necklace. I would never go explore the outdoors in ballet flats. x__x

The entrance to the store is decorated with antlers and two taxidermy Bambis, which I think looks cool, but at the same time I’m  like, “Holy sh!t, Bambi and his friends died for this!” I know deer are overpopulated and have ticks and carry Lyme disease and whatever, but it’s still sad. And the store is basically a menagerie of stuffed animals, so if you can’t handle that kind of stuff, you probably shouldn’t check out the store.

Random Nina fact: Deers rank among my top 5 favorite animals.

  1. Puppies
  2. Ponies
  3. Deer
  4. Pandas
  5. Penguins <– #5 is sometimes switched between tigers and otters

Anywho, I found a couple of interesting BBQ sauces at the Bass Pro Shop too:

Why didn’t I buy them???

So, this store was basically the highlight of mine and Marquis’ reunion. Afterwards we headed the mall in Stockton so he could return some shoes, and he had to wait for me while I looked around Forever 21. Haha! We thought about going to watch a movie, but nothing interesting is out right now, so we went to Toys ‘R Us (my suggestion, naturally) and TJ Maxx (also my suggestion). I found a cute bone-shaped houndstooth printed doggy poo bag dispenser for $4! If I’m going to start picking up dog crap, I might as well do it in style.

So yeah… that was my day! 🙂
