Day 29: Lilo from Lilo and Stitch

You guys!!! Thrift Store Cosplay is winding down and I only have 2 days of cosplay left to share with you. I have really enjoyed tricking out my closet with fun, whimsical and practical items. Some of which are very specifically costume-ish and others that I will definitely get some more wear out of. My closet is pretty amazing right now!! I must admit and because everything was procured at vintage, thrift, consignment and resale stores, I feel hella good about it!!

I’m gonna be taking some polls on which were your favorite characters and such from the whole August series, so keep an eye out for that!! Also I have a giveaway going on right now with JORD Watches. I hope you’ll take a minute to enter to win $100 at JORD! Use this link: woodwatches.com/g/nerdinthesand

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 a rock star!

SHOWTIME SYNERGY!!!

Day 25: Marty McFly from Back to the Future

Bringing in the big guns, as I approach the end of August and the end of my #thriftstorecosplay series. I hope you guys have been enjoying these as much as I have!! You know what I just realized the other day, I have 31+ costumes to choose from for Halloween this year!! Win, win, win!

Which leads me to think I might need to regenerate a mini version of this series in October leading into Halloween. But I don’t want to come up with the ideas on my own this time. I’ll be running polls and taking suggestions and maybe come up with a 10 day countdown as Halloween approaches. So if you have any cosplays you want to see me attempt in the days leading up to Halloween, you can tweet me, comment on Instagram, comment here on the blog or email me at nerdinthecity01@gmail.com. Or maybe there’s a cosplay I did this series that you think would make the very best Halloween costume this year. Maybe you think I should take it to the streets, let me know!!

And in the meantime, here is my Mart McFly for your viewing pleasure!

Thrift Store Cosplay Day 24: GLOW on Netflix Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling 80's Leotard fashion blog post

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 the whole genre. But I think the character I most resemble today is Betty Gilpin’s Debbie. If that doesn’t mean anything to you, it’s cause you didn’t take my advice yet and haven’t seen the show…what are you waiting for? Go watch it, I’ll wait!

Day 23: Dopey from Snow White and the Seven Dwarves

For as long as I can remember, I have been a Disnerd. Disney is in my blood. I grew up watching the movies. I have a favorite Princess, a favorite Prince, a favorite Disney song, a favorite Disney movie, a Disney Princess I most relate to, a Disney Prince I’d like to date and of course…a favorite Disney character of all time. Well, to be honest, I have two favorite Disney characters of all time.

The first is the Genie from Aladdin (RIP Robin) and the second is Dopey from Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. Sure, he doesn’t have much to say or even that much screen time. But there was always something about Dopey. I find him endearing. And he has been at the top of my list for a very long time. When I was a kid, it was rather customary for me to receive something with Dopey on it for my birthday or Christmas, in my stocking and I think I even got an Easter basket once that had a Dopey item or two.

My love for Dopey has matured…it’s grown, as I have. And here we go:

Day 22: The Fonz from Happy Days

I don’t know about you, but growing up with reruns of Happy Days meant the king of cool was none other than Henry Winkler’s Arthur Fonzerelli…aka The Fonz or Fonzie. He was always there to shed a well-timed “Eyyyy” on the situations Richie and the other Happy Days gang would find themselves in.

Here’s my version of The Fonz:
