I know you are thinking, “Wait a sec!  Kim, you’re a Hufflepuff to the end.  What are you doing in a Ravenclaw dress?”  Well, like all geek bounding pieces, I made this one a Cap stealth suit dress.

The dress is super duper comfy and very light and breezy.  The fabric is a super sturdy spandex, so it isn’t see-thru and has tons of stretch.  I’m wearing a 3XL.  I’m a size 18/20 for reference.

If you do decide to geek bound magically, the dress has a wand pocket, fyi.  As with all Elhoffer dresses, this one has pockets!

Short star necklace from Amazon.  The long necklace is from Lane Bryant.

Fashion Alert: Tee Turtle

I have a new obsession, Tee Turtle.

I already knew about Tee Turtle, but I discovered recently that they have plus size ladies t-shirts!  Not only that, but they have sales on their tees for $12!  All good stuff.  Take a look at their shirts here.

Here are three recent acquisitions from Tee Turtle that I got for twelve bucks a piece.  I’m wearing a women’s relaxed fit in 2XL.  I am a size 18/20 for reference.

First up is Star Lord:

I styled my t-shirt with my trusty cosplay Walkman and Star Lord jacket from Merchoid.  Get the jacket here.

Next up is my Doctor Strange shirt:

I styled my t-shirt with a pencil skirt, belt and Eye of Agamotto necklace, all from Amazon.

Last up is my Marvel shirt:

20170904_210527

I styled my shirt with a plaid skirt from Torrid and a bandana from Dollar Tree.

I love the variety of t-shirts that they offer.  I obviously went straight for the Marvel selections, but check out their Halloween t-shirts, which are amazing!

Happy shopping!

Outfit of the Day: Dragon Scale Dress

For our latest outfit of the day, we have the dragon scale dress from Living Dead Clothing.

20170929_175003

I’m a big fan of Living Dead Clothing.  They have great printed spandex selections from a variety of fandoms.  This company is also size-inclusive.  I will always cheer on companies that are size-inclusive.  I’m wearing a 2XL.  I’m a size 18/20 for reference.

20170929_175022

The neckline of this dress is a bit different from their usual skaters.  This one is more of a halter-type cut, and they call it the “Happy Hour” dress.  The happy hour dress also is a little bit longer than their usual skater style, which I like.  The dress also features pockets, which is something Living Dead has been adding to their designs.

20170929_173009

I love the 3-D look of the scales and the colors are really beautiful.  From a cobalt blue to a turquoise to a violet.  It is really lovely.

My inflatable dragon, is available at Big Lots.

Pick up your own dress here.

Happy Shopping!

New Cosplay Items! Star Lord Jackets

OK, I admit this freely.  I have a hoarding problem when it comes to the following: lipstick, black t-shirts, Cap fashion items and Star Lord fashion items.  I also constantly create and update my Star Lord cosplay, so when I found not one, but two Star Lord replica jackets, I pounced.

The first jacket is a great cosplay jacket from We Love Fine.  Get yours here.

20170904_205636

The jacket is well made and size inclusive, all the way up to 3XL in men’s sizing.  So, the sleeves are too long on me, but a quick roll-up will solve that problem.

20170904_205602

It is a great update to my Star Lord cosplay!

The other jacket is from Merchoid.  Get yours here.

20170904_205905

This one is also a replica.  However, there is some branding that prevents it from being 100% screen accurate.  But, let’s face it.  Who cares?  It’s cosplay, not rocket surgery, ya know?

Here are some photos of the lining and the Guardians pin.  These details are really great and make it perfect everyday cosplay wear.

This is also a men’s jacket, so the sizing issues with the arms is still there.  This jacket is also size inclusive, up to 3XL.

I just checked online and both versions are almost sold out, so get on it, nerds!

Outfit of the Day: Bandana Print Cap Dress

Our latest outfit of the day is a fun new dress I got at thinkgeek.com.

20170802_175156

The dress is super comfortable for summer, made of super stretchy spandex and the print is super cute!

The bandana style print with cap shields and Cap faces integrated into the design is a nice subtle way to sport your fandom.

It is a skater-style dress, but the length is to the knee, which is way more versitile than the usual super-short skaters.  The dress is also size-inclusive, offered up to 3XL.

I love styling the dress with a bandana neck scarf or wrist scarf, and a fun belt to show off your waist.  I also make sure the wear my new creepers with everything I can, including this dress!

We’ve still got some warm days ahead of us before the weather turns cold, so go get yours!

Outfit of the Day: Doctor Strange Everyday Cosplay

For our latest outfit of the day, we wanted to show you a great everyday cosplay dress from Living Dead Clothing.

20170802_171234 (1)

I paired this dress with a dolman from Amazon.

 

I love the details on this dress!  From the Eye of Agamotto, the Cloak of Levitation and the belts and folds on the good doctor’s robes, Living Dead didn’t miss a beat.

The spandex is heavy duty and and holds up well.  The cut is comfy.  My only complaint is that the dress only goes up to XL.  Living Dead is usually more size inclusive than this.  Sometimes they go up to 3XL with their pieces, but unfortunately not this time.

20170802_171356 (1)

The XL fits on me a bit snug, but it fits.  I wear a size 18/20 for reference.  As with all of their other dresses, regardless of size, these are true skater dress, aka they are short.  Leggings or biker shorts will be required.

This dress is a great everyday cosplay option for fans of The Sorcerer Supreme.  Get your own here.

Outfit of the Day: Spiderman Goth Dresses

Our next outfit of the day is from Her Universe.

20170802_170342

These cute dresses are Spiderman themed with the spiderman stretch lace over a red bodice and a cute sequined spider on the shoulder.  We also think these are great goth looking dresses for Halloween as well.

20170802_170555

We purchased these at the Her Universe store at SDCC, but they are available on their website.

As always, Her Universe sizing is kind of all over the place.  I got a 4X in this dress, so I have items from Universe from a size XL all the way up to 4X now.  I’m a size 18/20 for reference.  This is super frustrating, so let’s hope they keep working on the sizing issue.  A big part of the problem is that these are junior sizes, not women’s sizes.  So a 3X in Her Universe on the site versus a size 3 at Torrid of the same dress will fit differently.  So, my advice, check the size charts and go by your measurements.  Scout got a medium.

We really love these dresses and can’t wait to wear them often this Halloween season, which are high-holy days for us!

Next up, some great new everyday cosplay items and a great new Marvel Legends buy for Guardians of the Galaxy!

Until next time.

Love, Kim and Scout
