Hey my little ponies! The ladies over at Set to Stunning are holding their second annual Nerdvember contest over on Instagram, and I decided to participate this year. The gist of it is is that participants are supposed to wear a geek inspired outfit — it can be a casual cosplay or an outfit with geek clothing/accessories — and post it on their Instagram account. Towards the end they’re going to pick a bunch of winners and give out fun prizes! I thought it would be a fun challenge, plus my blog’s emphasis is geek fashion, so it only made sense. 😀
Check out their post to find out more about Nerdvember here.
Every Sunday I’m going to share my outfits of the week on the blog with a little blurb about each one. So let’s begin!
Day 1: R2-D2
I remember thinking, “Oh, Nerdvember is gonna start soon!” during the last few days of October. And then all of a sudden it was November and I didn’t even realize it until the middle of the day. So I just took a selfie of me wearing my We Love Fine R2-D2 pullover and my Han Solo necklace with a denim vest. Not pictured is my pink, baby blue, and navy floral skirt. Oh well!
Day 2: Winnie the Pooh
It was a blustery day and a little rainy, so I thought it was the perfect time to bust out my Pooh Bear pullover. At first I was wearing jeggings, but felt so weird wearing them, so when I went home during my lunch break I changed into this long red circle skirt. 😛
Day 3: More R2-D2!
I wore my R2 pullover again and went all out with the matching accessories!
Day 4: Wookiee Wednesday
Like I mentioned before, on Wednesdays I always wear a Star Wars themed outfit no matter what. I paired my Chewbacca raglan top with this pink and black floral skirt from H&M and this light pink cardigan, because Chewbacca and flowers are a winning combination.
Day 5: Soot Sprites
This was a super lazy day and it was cold as f*ck that morning! But I paired my soot sprites dress with some thick black nylons, ankle boots, a zip-up hoodie, and my faux leather motorcycle jacket.
Day 6: Batman/Gotham
Another lazy day! I came across my Detective Jim Gordon necklace while cleaning my room and decided to make an outfit around it. I paired the necklace with a Batman necklace my friend Amanda got me for my birthday, my Batman hairbow, sparkly ring, and also had Rory wear his Batman t-shirt. 🙂
Day 7: Harry Potter
Yesterday just so happened to be National Book Lovers Day, so I nixed the Firefly outfit I was originally going to wear and put together this Harry Potter outfit! It was cold and I wanted to wear the Hufflepuff infinity scarf my sister made for me last year, but it is nowhere to be found! So there goes that stereotype of Hufflepuffs being particularly good finders. 😛
I’m excited to come up with some outfits for this coming week because I’m heading down to Anaheim for the Captain America 10k! I just got my top for the race last night, I just need to find some navy blue sweats which are surprisingly hard to find. Everything is black or grey! WTF is that all about? But anyhow…
Are you also participating in Nerdvember too? If you’re not, it’s not too late to start! You can also follow me on Instagram to see what I’m up to here: @lefancygeek 🙂
