OOTD: Pin-Up Girl Clothing Dresses

For our outfit of the day selection this time, we went with our new dresses from Pin-Up Girl Clothing.

 

We got the dresses at the Pin-Up Girl booth at WonderCon this year, and boy, do we LOVE these!

For starters, they are super comfy while looking formal.  They can be dressed way up or down, depending on where you are wearing them.  As always, I champion any company that offers true plus-size selections in their collections.  Pin-Up offers up to size 4X and sells them right along side of the XS.  They are true plus-size and not juniors sizing, which is also a big deal.

You’ll notice that we bought colors other than our house, Hufflepuff.  Basically, I got mine because of Cap (naturally), and Scout was feeling a little Slytherin that day, and also Loki.  We might need to put together some type of pin-up Avengers cosplay in the future, just sayin…

Anyway, get your own dresses here.  My creepers are from Amazon, and Scout’s Chucks are Converse.

#Craftstorechallenge

The kiddo and I recently took on the Craft Store Challenge or #craftstorechallenge that has been gaining in popularity recently on Instagram.

Basically, what it is is a hashtag for selfies taken at a craft or fabric store.  The lighting is surprisingly great and all the floral displays in particular provide a great photo backdrop.  I also added some floral stickers and borders to make the pictures pop even more.

Here are the results of our #craftstorechallenge.  If you decide to take it on, please send us some pics.  We love hearing from you!

WonderCon Recap: Cap Corset

I took advantage of the nice weather at WonderCon this year, and had another photo shoot with Justin Davidson Photography with my Captain America corset from Castle Corsetry.   Book him here.

You might remember last time, I paired it with leggings, but this time with a hi-lo skirt from Amazon.  My shield is from cosplaysky.com.

 

My corset was a commissioned work, but Castle Corestry has several offerings for the Marvel fans out there.  Shop the store here.

Happy Shopping!

Avengers: Infinity War

THIS CONTAINS MOSTLY SPOILERS, BUT IT HAS BEEN A WEEK ALREADY.  HOWEVER, WE ARE WARNING YOU…

…..

…..

…..

OK, like Banner in Sakaar, I’M FREAKING OUT!!!

What an intense experience!  10 years in and now it all came down to this movie.  This movie delivered on so many levels.  It really was sublime in how it got us ready for “Avengers: Endgame”.  That is the official title now.

As per usual, I am not going to try to review the movie.  My viewpoint is far from balanced on this one, and I’m not a movie reviewer by any stretch.

f3c654af9d3e989a19fa305cdf1b8009

However, I am some thoughts, feels and memes to share.  So, let’s get to it!

  • Where’s Korg and Meek?  I’m worried
  • I knew Loki was toast, but I’m still extremely upset to lose our God of Mischief
  • Heimdaal, same, knew he was toast, but I thought he had the soul stone, so I was super-duper wrong
  • I love that we finally got to see Stark and Strange together.  Their egos can fit in a room together, which surprised me
  • Yay, Wong was in this!
  • Yay, Ned was in this!
  • I love Spiderman more and more with Tom Holland playing him so masterfully
  • Stan Lee cameo was LIT!
  • I hope the Cloak of Levitation got its own trailer this time.  It deserves one
  • Love that we got a new Guardians song to add to our Marvel playlists!  “Rubberband Man” by The Spinners, btw
  • Teenage Groot is hilarious
  • “Quill, you’re a dude.  This is a man.”
  • A pirate angel
  • Rabbit
  • Rocket telling Groot to, “Tinkle”
  • Dinklage!
  • Stormbreaker is amazeballs

  • I love how the women in this movie are vital!
  • Oh man, not Gamora tho!!!
  • Scarlet Witch really gets to show her stuff in this film, which I’m super OK with
  • Stark also not getting along with Star Lord, as expected.  Good thing Titan is so large cause that’s three huge egos now!
  • So glad Rhodey is back on the team!
  • Glad to see more Banner and less Hulk (sorry Hulk, but I prefer the cute one)
  • Shuri trolling Banner
  • Rocket and Bucky fighting together.  Rocket will get that arm
  • Star Lord hopping on the spells that Doctor Strange laid out for him.  Jumping through a portal and flipping off Thanos.  Nice.
  • Cap’s beard.  All day long
