Thrift Store Cosplay Day 28

Day 28: JEM from JEM and the Holograms Out of all the characters I’ve chosen to cosplay this month, JEM is the one who is nearest and dearest to my heart. I used to watch the cartoon when I was a kid and dream of the day I could have pink hair and be aContinue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 28”

Thrift Store Cosplay Day 24

Day 24: GLOW This is one of my new favorite shows from Netflix this year. A show about the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, set in the 80’s (my favorite era!) If you haven’t seen this show yet, you should. I didn’t chose a specific character to cosplay, I sort of did an homage to theContinue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 24”

Thrift Store Cosplay Day 13

Day 13: Luigi from Super Mario Brothers This one ended up being more of an homage than I originally intended. The first piece of my Luigi cosplay I found was the green overalls. I got excited cause I thought to myself “Look, green overalls…just like Luigi wears!” In my defense I haven’t owned a NintendoContinue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 13”

Mawage

I’ll admit…when I was younger, I dreamed often and deeply of my one perfect, future wedding day. A day surrounded by friends and families and pretty colors. A day I’d have lost all the unwanted weight for. A day I’d driven all my bridesmaids crazy to get to. A day where my groom might reconsider theContinue reading “Mawage”

Battle of the Darcy’s

As Valentine’s Day approaches, I wanted to take a look at one of the most romantic figures in all of literature…Mr. Darcy himself. I’m hard pressed to find anyone that matches up to this paragon of moral fiber. So instead of pitting people against him. I’ll pit him against himself and share some of my favoriteContinue reading “Battle of the Darcy’s”

The Only Girl in the World

When I was growing up…there was only one girl in the whole world that I wanted to be. I didn’t have a lot of choices. Leading ladies in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s were few and far between to say the least. One girl in Star Wars (Princess Leia.) One girl in Superman (Lois Lane.)Continue reading “The Only Girl in the World”

39 Times Rom Coms Pissed Me Off

You know what really burns my butt? Romantic Comedies!! Because here I am over here…liberated female, free from the ties that bind me and then a movie like When Harry Met Sally comes on and all that level-headed nonsense goes right out the window because…reasons! It just burns. It stings actually. And the worst partContinue reading “39 Times Rom Coms Pissed Me Off”

30 Days of Nerdy Hair – Day 11

Day 11: JEM from JEM and the Holograms This was definitely one of my favorite cartoons growing up. Girl inherits record label and becomes a philanthropic business woman by day and an incognito rockstar by night. My life goals were set!! If you were born in the late 80’s or 90’s and missed JEM andContinue reading “30 Days of Nerdy Hair – Day 11”

30 Days of Nerdy Hair – Day 3

Day 3: Gem from Tron: Legacy I’ll be honest. Tron wasn’t one of those things I grew up watching and loving. Back in the 80’s, if my parents didn’t watch it and introduce me to it then I never saw it. And when I got older I just forgot about it. But I did seeContinue reading “30 Days of Nerdy Hair – Day 3”

This is how you JEM

Ok I rare to never post about things I don’t like. I think there’s too much negativity on the internet already and I really don’t feel the need or desire to add to that. But I gotta talk about this new trailer for JEM and the Holograms… WHAT THE?!?!?! This is not JEM. This isContinue reading “This is how you JEM”
