Everyday Cosplay: Star-Lord

pullover: Uniqlo // boots: Carlos by Carlos Santana // studs: Studio Silver
jacket: Guess // necklace: Le Fancy Geek Boutique
belt: Forever 21 // tote: Forever Wars // pants: ModCloth

Right after I watched Guardians of the Galaxy (GOTG) back in August I immediately thought, “I CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS TO COME OUT ON BLURAY!!!” <– ALL CAPS NECESSARY. And it finally came out on Tuesday and I couldn’t be happier to have my very own copy so I can watch it as much as I please! Shout out to my friend Caitlin for grabbing a copy of the special limited edition tin case that looks like a Walkman from Best Buy for me 😀

Obviously, I’m on a GOTG kick. I’ve also been lacking in creating Everyday Cosplay posts, so I figure it would be a good idea to start it up again with good ‘ol Peter Quill a.k.a. Star-Lord. His outfit can easily be translated with a simple grey sweater, a burgundy leather jacket, blue skinny jeans, and some brown boots. However, some people, mainly Oncers (that’s what fans of Once Upon a Time are called in case you didn’t know), will think you’re channeling Emma Swan since she often sports the leather jacket/skinny jeans/boots combo.

I added a few accessories related to GOTG to make it clear that this is all inspired by Star-Lord such as a pair of gold star-shaped earrings, because STAR-Lord. Durr. Also, when I think of the word “galaxy” I immediately think of stars — I have a tendency to make literal references whenever I put geek inspired outfits together. I also came across this Awesome Mix Vol. 1 tote on Etsy that’s just absolute perfection! And of course, the outfit wouldn’t be complete without a Star-Lord necklace (made by yours truly). 🙂

Ugh. Now I wish actually did have this outfit so I can go outside and listen to the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack on my iPhone (because I don’t own a Walkman anymore (does anyone?)) so I can dance around to “Come and Get Your Love” and stomp in puddles.

If you haven’t seen the movie (OH MY GAWD, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!), you probably have no idea what I’m talking about. So please watch this:

Cheers,
Nina

PS: I can’t write a Guardians of the Galaxy post about Star-Lord without mentioning how fuggin’ hot Chris Pratt is! I thought he was adorable when he had chubs on Parks & Recreation, but in Guardians of the Galaxy? DAAAAMMMN. Okay, that is all.

Hey Girl. Cool Shirt.

Hey Girl. Today is Ryan Gosling’s 34th birthday!

What better day to show off this crazy, stupid, lovely (see what I did there?) t-shirt from Clashist that features the Gos’ handsome mug all over it than today? I’ll be honest, I forgot that today was RyRy’s special day until I checked Facebook this morning. But to my defense, am I really obligated to remember all my celebrity crushes birthdays? I certainly hope not! Anyhow, I immediately put this outfit together because it is absolutely appropriate for today. 😀

So this outfit post, unlike all the ones I’ve posted in the past, is a legit #OOTD/#WIWT (Outfit of the Day/What I Wore Today). Like, I’m seriously wearing it as I put this post together. I had to ask one of my co-workers to take pictures of me during within a 5-minute span just so I could make this post after I got home from work. Shout out to Brianna for taking the pictures with my phone!

Like many ladies my age, I was first exposed to the sexiness that is Ryan Gosling during his Mickey Mouse Club days. Err… okay, so he wasn’t sexy then — I mean hellooo, what was he, 13? GROSS. At the very least he was adorable and 7-year-old me totally had a crush on him, but Tony Lucca was my main man back then. But all of sudden he got all grown up and started appearing in all these great movies, formed a band (Dead Man’s Bones), and stole my heart along the way… along with millions of other girls. ♡

Happy Birthday Ryan Gosling!

Are you ponies fans of the Gos too? If so, what are some of your favorite Ryan Gosling flicks? Mine are Blue Valentine, Half Nelson, Remember the Titans, Lars and the Real Girl, and Crazy, Stupid Love. Oh, and do you guys remember when he was Young Hercules? – insert laughing emoji here – 

Cheers,
Nina
