Wizard World Madness

It's always such a blast seeing various people decked out in fabulous superhero/villain costumes. I try taking as many pics as possible posing with them or getting solo shots of creativity at work. Sure they say that comic books are just for the nerds, but rest assure every one of every creed and station gets a kick out of letting their inner child come out. Dressing up isn't just for Halloween anymore!

The Costumes


I have no idea what this person was supposed to be (they didn't either!), if they were male or female (they refused to speak!) but giraffes rule & should be in the comic books fighting crime (giant evil Panda Bears?), I suppose!


Rogue & I are the untouchable, unstoppable kind of women! I commend her costume, I really do. Much, much better than that atrocity X-Men put together for Anna Paquin.



A babe amongst babes, hahaha! Though I could use work. Wonder Woman & unidentified black leotard chick were definitely sweet crime fighters & I was greatly obl…

The drive to Niles, Ohio was four hours and twenty minutes.

At that location, they claimed to have given away all of their free tickets, but when I mentioned that I paid for mine already in advance, they told me about the Will Call at the stadium which was addressed at 111 Eastwood Rd. not a place I saw on the actual site.

We arrived at the stadium thirty minutes later, found the Will Call (yes, it was a Subway Will Call too, omg!), and stood in a very, very long line.
But I guess this pic was worth it!



I loved seeing James's awesomeness!

First off, the upcoming weekend is very, very exciting for I will be writing about the upcoming James Scott Minor League Baseball game on Saturday evening and the fantastic, fun filled enjoyment of Wizard World Chicago on Sunday. Woot! Woot!
Now on with the show!

For the past few weeks, I've been digging one of a kind items, especially uniquely crafted wearable art that relate to me as an individual, as a creative, free-spirited young woman.
It was imperative to find things that speak that language.
Some of which I saw on etsy, rarely eBay, and now I've been looking into shops a lot more independent.
One purchase I loved was made last Friday, a beautiful bag from an incredibly chic indie store, called Vau Store which features sweet tote bags featuring modest, minimalistic, metaphoric (say that three times fast, I dare you!) designs.
I was very lucky for it was sold out a week prior, but the store tweeted me a heads up once it was stocked (and on sale nonetheless!) Drawn by t…
