The Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland celebrated its 20th anniversary this past Wednesday!

I can’t believe the ride is that old… I was only nine when it came out. Damn, I feel old! But the ride is timeless because Indiana Jones is such classic and iconic character. And of course, it’s one of my favorite attractions at Disneyland! Actually, it’s probably everyone’s favorite because whenever I’m there the wait time for it is ridiculous. I think the longest I’ve seen the wait time listed was for 85 minutes. Yikes!

In honor of the attraction’s big 2-0, I put together an Indiana Jones everyday cosplay with a feminine twist. Rather than opting for a leather (or faux leather) jacket similar to Indy’s, I replaced it with a dark brown cardigan. Despite his hatred of serpentine creatures, I included a gold snake bracelet that kind of looks like a treasure he’d come across on one of his many adventures. I also paired my Indiana Jones necklace with it too! And of course, no Indiana Jones inspired outfit is complete without a fedora (whip is optional). 😀

Happy Anniversary Indiana Jones! May you take us all on many more adventures ♡

cheers

I can’t believe Agent Carter is already going to have its season finale next Tuesday. UGH! And Parks & Rec is having their SERIES finale, but that’s an entirely different post! DOUBLE UGH.

I really hope that Agent Carter gets renewed for a second season because I need more Peggy Carter in life. Speaking of which, Barbara of You Fancy Me Mad is hosting a giveaway for one of my Peggy Carter necklaces on her blog! It’s open to all US residents, so be sure to check it out and enter here if you want to carry a bit of Peggy wherever you go. 😀

Anyhow, as you may have noticed this is an outfit post! Yeah, I know, I haven’t done one since my birthday. I’m working on it, I swear.

I picked up this Avengers icon dress from Her Universe during their Black Friday sale last November, and got it for 50% off. SCORE! I love how subtle it is with all the Avengers logos splayed all over it like a polka-dot pattern, and I can pretty much pair it with any pop of color I want. I usually wear it with a green cardigan and pair it with a Loki necklace, but I looked at it hanging in my closet one day and thought, “That would look hella cute with a pink motorcycle jacket!” Except, I don’t own a pink motorcycle jacket, so my pale pink cardigan (that I’ve had for 4 years) would have to suffice. Then I added my Peggy Carter necklace, put a rose clip in my hair, and threw one some black ballet flats, and VOILA! Super femme geek!

I really like the way this outfit turned out because it made me feel like a fancy geek. Ha! See what I did there? Te-he 😉

cheers

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.

I Solemnly Swear That I Am Up to No Good

I’ve been feeling quite nostalgic over Harry Potter lately, especially since Hot Topic started coming out with all these amazing HP accessories and dresses! Since us Potterheads have awhile to wait the for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie to be released, and also for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter to open at Universal Studios in Hollywood, CA (both are supposedly slated for 2016, which feels VERY far away — also, some of us west coasters don’t have the money or desire to make the trek to Florida to visit the WWHP there… it’s so bloody hot and humid!), this, to me, feels like a way to hold me over until then. I’m also planning on re-visiting the book series since it’s been too long since I last read them. Right now I’m reading The Tales of Beedle the Bard for funsies.

I saw this Marauder’s Map dress at Hot Topic last month and wanted to cry over both how beautiful it was and also for the fact that the store I saw it in didn’t have it in my size. Then I went online and it was sold out in my size too, nor did the store in my town have it. First World Problems, right? Ugh! But, the the sale associate looked it up and there were two left at the store in Modesto (hometown of George Lucas and Jeremy Renner), so I had them put it on hold and made the 45 minute trek to pick it up. The things we do for material items sometimes, y’know? It was totally worth the drive though! I paired the dress with my mustard yellow cardigan that I found at a thrift store to rep my Hufflepuffness, and borrowed my mom’s Kate Spade owl purse because how perfect does it look with this dress? Harry Potter and owls just makes sense… like peanut butter and jelly, or Tonks and Lupin. The Harry Potter necklace I made goes perfectly with it too. 🙂

How’re my fellow Potterheads holding up?

Cheers,
Nina
