Who else celebrated Galentine’s Day last weekend?! I had so much fun celebrating it with three of my fave lady friends: Jen, Shanice, and Caitlin. It consisted of a bunch of waffles, a bit of Domhnall Gleeson (About Time was on the telly), milk tea with Boba, and Deadpool! Jen and I went to Grape City Con in Lodi first since my uncle gave me two tickets. I wasn’t really expecting much out of it, but it was a lot bigger than I thought it would be. I ended up leaving with a little portrait of Chewbacca and a Padme action figure that would totally make a perfect wedding cake topper if I pair it with my Darth Vader action figure. I mean… not that I’m planning on using it for that purpose, but who knows? It just might come in handy one day. 😛
While we were there, Jen got me a cute Loki inspired bow made out of perler beards (pictured below) and a Deadpool one for herself since they matched our outfits perfectly. The vendor who made them didn’t have a business card, nor was their business’ name anywhere in sight at their booth, so I have no idea who to give credit to and it’s driving me mad. Soooo, if you happened to be at Grape City Con and you know who made all the geeky perler bead hair accessories, let a girl know! Waffles, a bit ‘o Domhnall, Shanice, milk tea with boba, and Deadpool all happened after the con. The Deadpool movie was so much f*cking fun, you guys! I have a crude sense of humor, so I quite enjoyed it. Now I feel even more compelled to pick up some Deadpool comics!
Can I talk about this dress I wore for Galentine’s Day for a sec? Oh, duh. Of course I can. It’s my damn blog! It’s from LulaRoe, which is a company my sister has been über obsessed with. She has so many of their leggings, I don’t even know how many pairs she has, but she got me a pair for Galentine’s Day and they feel like buttah when I wear them. She introduced LuLaRoe to me a few months ago since one of her co-workers is a fashion consultant for them and thought I might like the dresses they have. And she was right! They don’t have an online shop on their website like most clothing companies do. Instead, people can contact them to become fashion consultants and through that, they are sent merch to sell via online pop up shops. My sister’s co-worker sells things through a private Facebook group. I believe that’s how most consultants sell stuff. So think Avon, but for clothes (I guess?). This particular dress was part of their holiday collection and I remember drooling over it because it’s perfect for a Loki inspired outfit! I bought it earlier this month when I saw that it was still available and planned to wear it for Galentine’s Day. I paired it with the Loki necklace I got at Anime Expo as a subtle nod, but when I saw Shanice she was like, “I love your dress, it’s very Slytherin!” After giving her a dirty look and saying it’s for Loki, she said it could also work for Legend of Zelda. I think it’d be good for an Emerald City inspired ensemble too.
If you watched Deadpool or can think of any other geeky thing I can base an outfit around for this green and gold dress, lemme know in the comments section!
