Brite Organix “Make Me Pastel Purple” Shampoo

As you all know, I love being a platinum blonde!  Since discovering the platinum assymetrical pixie cut, I’m hooked for life.  Finding your ‘do is kind of a big deal.  We all use our hair, or lack thereof, to enhance our look.  Hair is an important accessory, so like make-up, it is a lot of fun to play with it and try new things.  Also like make-up, your look is temporary because hair magically grows back and colors fade over time.  So, if you don’t like how something looks, change it!

To cut the brassiness of my bleach-blondeness, I use a purple-hued shampoo recommended by my stylist.  If I used it enough, I would get a slight pastel purple hue to my hair, which I liked, but I also like going back to blonde as well.

Recently the kiddo and I went to Ulta to get some supplies, like ya do, and saw this shampoo and conditioner by Brite Organix…

I was intrigued.  Since it does not require a commitment, I thought, “Why the heck not?” So, I gave it a go.  Here are some pics, not filtered, after one wash…

As you can see, it really gave it a nice silvery pastel purple hue.  I really like it!  Also, it will fade with each wash of my regular cleansing conditioner by WEN, so no committment.  Just a fun thing.  Also cuts the brassiness right out, so win-win.

I did a little research on Brite Organix.  Their products are vegan, which is great.  They also have a variety of different products, hair colors, shampoos, etc.  Check out their website here.  They are an Australian company, but if you want to check out their products in person, just visit your local Ulta store.

Happy shopping!

SDCC Recap: Her Universe Fashion Show

Our last SDCC recap is the Her Universe Fashion Show, which took place at the Regency Grand Hyatt on Thursday evening.  This year’s show marked the fifth anniversary of the show.  We’ve attended every year.  This year brought some wonderful designs, as always, inspired by all kinds of fandoms from Godzilla:

Ashley’s dress was also an incredible creation inspired by “The Nightmare Before Christmas” using over 500 Funko Pops!  The dress weighed in at 40 pounds, almost double that of her Lego dress from two years ago.

There was an incredible surprise in the middle of the show, the 13th Doctor, Jodie Whittaker herself, walked the runway in her new costume.  Whittaker stated on the runway that she had input in the design which needed, “To be comfortable, of course.” and also, “Anyone can cosplay this.  You aren’t cosplaying a woman.  You aren’t cosplaying a man.  You are cosplaying The Doctor.”  Her Universe released their own 13th Doctor coat at SDCC, so we can all cosplay The Doctor.

Her Universe also released a special Clone Wars collection to celebrate the return of “Clone Wars” with 12 more episodes!

It was an incredible show, and as always, the designs did not disappoint.

Until next time…

SDCC Recap: Cosplaying With Your Kids Panel

For our first recap of the craziness that is SDCC, we are covering our panel, “Cosplaying With Your Kids” that took place on Friday.

We had an amazing time with Coulson and Kids, RavenPuff Cosplay and Little Negan Cosplay with Anastasia Washington moderating.

We covered several topics relating to cosplaying with your kids including sources, theming your cosplays to your group, social media guidelines for parents and kids and how the older kids in the group deal with bullying.

We were so excited to welcome Coulson and Kids (and Mom!) to our panel.  We hope to have another panel with them again at another con.  Maybe WonderCon next year?  Here’s hoping!  Coulson and Kids are three generations of cosplayers in the same family that cosplay together.  They serve as an inspiration to all of us that cosplay knows no age limit.  You can all jump in at any time in your life to enjoy this wonderful community of nerds!
