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”

Pink!

When I was a kid, I hated pink, with a vengeance. My deep and utter loathing extended into middle school and high school and even into college. I thought myself to be a cool-colors kinda girl, gravitating to blues, greens and purples instead of pinks, oranges and yellows. My insistence on the evils of aContinue reading “Pink!”

30 Days of Nerdy Hair – Day 21

30 Days of Nerdy Hair

Day 9 – Secretary Barbie Today’s inspiration is Secretary Barbie. And come on… you can admit it. You played with Barbie’s way past the appropriate age. Wait… That was just me? Ok that makes sense! Regardless, Barbie was one of my favorite toys growing up. Despite the argument against her (unrealistic body image portrayal, noContinue reading “30 Days of Nerdy Hair”
