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 9: Fairy Godmother from Disney’s Cinderella (1950)

Everyone’s always giving all the love to the Disney Princesses, ok…I know…me included.  But what about the supporting characters who make the Princesses’ stories happen. Like…for example…Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother. We don’t know much about her, but we know that without her Cinderella would be up a creek without a paddle, if you will.

And another thing. We know Cinderella is Becky with the good shoes, but dang, if the Fairy Godmother didn’t have her own exquisite taste in footwear, would she really be giving Cindy such a great pair of heels? Women with bad taste in shoes don’t give shoes as a gift. I’m just saying…Fairy G Mom is probably rocking a pretty epic shoe closet back at home. With that in mind…here is my take on Cindy’s Fairy Godmother, mind the shoes!!

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 and the Holograms, it’s all on Netflix. Though I warn you, it’s not exactly a cartoon for kids. (Definitely wasn’t aware how inappropriate it was as a kid.) I also want to make sure that you know the upcoming movie is a far cry from the magnificence that was Jem! To hear my thought on that: click here.
image

I am a brunette by nature, so it’s hard for my hair to achieve the color pink that JEM was able to rock. Plus I don’t have a holographic program, like Synergy, at the touch of an earring to assist me in creating my alter ego. But some hair chalk and a pair of clip-on star earrings from Buffalo Exchange will take you right back to 1985 and let’s be honest…I could totally be JEM. I just need my Holograms. (Any volunteers??)

This hair is truly outrageous!!

30 Days of Nerdy Hair – Day 9

Day 9: Hercules from Disney’s Hercules

It isn’t just the Disney Princesses that can cause hair envy. Sometimes the Disney men folk have great hair too, actually a lot of them have great hair! Case in point, my man, Hercules. Check out those curls!! He could accessorize like nobody’s business! Yep, Herc sure knew what to do with that gorgeous mane of ginger hair!

image

I’m sad to report that my hair did not quite go the distance. The second I walked outside into the rainy, humidity my Herc curl fell like the Titans against Zeus. I don’t really use hairspray when creating these hairstyles, but perhaps in this instance it might have helped.

Zero to Hairo (ok maybe that one was a bit cheesy!)

Day 21: Drizella from Cinderella

Today’s hair is the second selection from Disney’s Cinderella, but today I took a walk on the evil side. Evil step sister Drizella. She of the jealous attitude and the extra large feet that don’t fit the glass slipper.

image

 

So I actually tried a different hair style today, but it didn’t work out so I went for good ole Drizella. It’s an easier style. But no less nerdy.

imageWe’re down to just 9 days left. Don’t miss a minute. I think I still have some Disney left on the list. Someone suggested a specific 30 days of Disney hair. What  do you nerds think? Would you like to see a full 30 Days of Disney in the future? Let me know in the comments below. And have a wonderful Friday!

Day 17: Snow White from Snow White and the Seven Dwarves

Lips as red as a rose, skin as white as snow, hair as black as a black sharpie marker… wait that doesn’t sound right…

Listen… blonde’s can be hunted for their hearts as well.

Day 23: Miss Frizzle from The Magic School Bus

Today’s hair comes courtesy from that kooky cartoon teacher with the wacky fashion sense. Miss Frizzle!!

image

This is another style where my hair is actually already this texture. So all I needed to do was throw it up in a messy situation with bobby pins.

Day 3: Cindy Loo Who from Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas

So I was a little ambitious when I chose Cindy Loo Who for day 3 of this series.

image

In all honesty my first run through of this style involved a red Solo cup and an awful lot of hairspray. But at the end of the day I do have to go to work and be seen in public. And roommates agreed that with the cup in there it looked more Bride of Frankenstein than innocent little Who girl.

So I made up my own Cindy Loo Who inspired do. Kind of a combination of the 2000 movie Grinch and the 1966 cartoon version.

image

Here’s what came of it.

Sure, it’s not an exact replica. I strive to make them as close as possible each day. But it does keep the spirit of this series if not the exact mission. And hey, it’s the first time a hairstyle ever got the better of me! I call that success.
