Ain’t No Thing Like Me, Except Me

I’m at Disneyland today with my sister and bruv-in-law. Hooray! Long story short, I missed renewing my Annual Pass by ONE day and after speaking to a cast member, I was told I could still receive the $60 discount and $0 down payment as long as I do it in person at the park before the 17th. So… here I am.  ¯_(ツ)_/¯

Talk about first world problems, huh?

The last time I went was right before Comic-Con and since it would be my first time going on Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout, I had to dress for the occasion with my Rocket Raccoon t-shirt from Fifth Sun and my galaxy print skirt. I was super anti-Mission Breakout because Tower of Terror was one of my all-time favorite rides, but I started warming up to it when I saw what they were doing with the structure back in April, and then Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was amazing, so I changed my tune. My thoughts? IT IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN TOWER OF TERROR. There. I said it. I love how super involved Rocket is with the whole ride experience too because he’s my fave. And it only made my outfit for the day even more appropriate 🙂

If you’re a huge Disnerd and happen to be on Instagram, you might be familiar with @bluewallpics — an IG account dedicated to cool OOTD (outfit of the day) and Disneybound photos taken in front of the blue wall that resides in the Hollywood Backlot area of Disney’s California Adventure. It’s the perfect spot to take pics because the natural light is on point, so my sister and I finally went and to document our outfits. I didn’t even use a filter or tweak them on Photoshop (I mean… I don’t even have Photoshop anymore, but that’s besides the point).

Are you a Tower of Terror purist? Have you gone on Mission Breakout yet? Know of any other super secret spots to take great pics at Disneyland? Who’s your favorite member of the Guardians of the Galaxy? Let’s talk about it in the comments!

Five Fandom Friday: Geeky Clothing Items I Need in My Closet Immediately

Screen-Shot-2014-09-25-at-7.48.24-AM

Megan of The Nerdy Girlie and Kristin of Super Space Chick started a really great series called Fandom Friday where they, and other geeky bloggers, list 5 things they’re geeky for. This Friday’s theme is fashion! I love all the fandoms I’m part of (derp) and I always draw fashion inspiration from all of them, so this feels like a good day to jump on the 5 Fandom Friday wagon 🙂

Pumpkin Coach Sweater by Cakeworthy x Disneybound

I love how Cakeworthy took the old Coach logo and put a Disney twist on it with Cinderella’s pumpkin carriage. And the subtle touches they did with what year it was established (1950, as in the the year Cinderella was released) and that they’re form “A land far, far away” is just so clever.

The Hiddleston bow by Dulce Calaveritas

Tom Hiddleston counts as a fandom, right? Duh, of course he does! So I totally feel justified in putting this adorable hair bow by Dulce Calaveritas on this list! As you can see it features Mr. Hiddleston’s handsome mug all over it. If you check out her shop, she also has a Benedict Cumberbatch bow and tons of other fun designs!

Doctor Who “Goodbye Raggedy Man” tank by Her Universe

The 11th Doctor holds a special place in my heart and I think this tank by Her Universe is such a fun a piece with it’s water color doodle print. I remember seeing it on Doctor Who’s Facebook page after the last day of San Diego Comic-Con and was sooo bummed that I didn’t get to buy it while I was there. If I made time to walk by the BBC America booth I would’ve gotten it in a heartbeat! At least I know it’s there on the internet when I have the monies to finally buy it! I think it would look so cute with an eggplant cardigan, skinny jeans, and some boots. 🙂

Star Wars x Vans Shoes

I’ve been drooling over these Journeys exclusive Star Wars shoes by Vans since they came out during the summer. They’re my favorite of the ones that have been released… I think that may be because Han Solo’s on them though. But let’s be honest: he’s the sh!t and super dreamy!

Sherlock “Bored” A-line Dress by Gold Bubble

This skater dress features Sherlock’s wallpaper complete with the spray painted happy face. How could I not add this onto my list of geeky clothing items I need?! I actually got to see this dress in person on none other than Victoria Schmidt a.k.a. Scruffy Rebel at Stockton-Con back in August and it’s too… what do the Brits say? Brilliant! It’s too bloody brilliant! The attention to detail on it is great because it has this faint blue line that goes throughout it just like the wallpaper on BBC’s Sherlock.

What’s on your geeky clothing wish list?

Cheers,
Nina
