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 19

Day 19: Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City This should be no surprise to you…I’m a Carrie Bradshaw through and through. I’ve taken the Buzzfeed quiz, so I know it’s true! It’s the hair…the fashion sense…the love of shoes…the independent lifestyle. And while I haven’t been on the dating scene in quite a while,Continue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 19”

Thrift Store Cosplay Day 17

Day 17: Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz Aside from being the 17th day in my Thrift Store Cosplay series, it also happens to be National Thrift Store Day. And I didn’t even plan it that way!

Thrift Store Cosplay Day 7

Day 7: Rapunzel from Tangled Today’s thrift store cosplay is a minimalist version of Disney’s Rapunzel. It’s more of a bounding, if you will. For those of you who have never heard of Disney bounding…look it up. It’s a simple way of representing your favorite characters at work, at Disney…basically anywhere you are, and stillContinue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 7”

Thrift Store Cosplay Day 6

Day 6: Amazon from Themyscira Ok, I could have gone the Wonder Woman route or even done a faithful adaptation of Antiope or Hippolyta, but since I truly believe that I belong among the Amazons of Themyscira, I did my own take on it. I don’t want to have someone else’s look when I finallyContinue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 6”

#PrincessBootCamp – Cinderella Week Fashion Inspo

When I’m in the middle of a fitness series, especially one that has such a specific theme, I like to do all I can to stay in theme, as you could tell from my other blog posts this week.
