Though I don't feature them here often, I have an extensive collection of geek t-shirts. I've amassed quite the collection from attending so many comic book and sci fi conventions over the years. Reminds me, I should probably do a closet clear out soon... Since black and red is one of my fave color combos I figured I rock an ensemble around this cutie Harley Quinn tee from Bioworld. Though she's not my fave Batman babe (Catwoman is bae), she's still pretty adorbs. ♥♦♣♠

The official Blizzard shop has been on point with their apparel and accessory offerings lately. My lovely friend Ciel surprised me with this awesome Hearthstone scarf at BlizzCon and I finally took the time to create an outfit around it. This scarf is GIANT and could easily be rocked as a shawl or sarong. It's light weight material too so it's pretty versatile from a weather standpoint. I have two Hearthstone light up charms, one from a keychain, the other a lanyard and decided to make earrings out of them to match. They even light up!

I feel like Halloween costumes get a really bad rap. Yes, quite a few are fairly crappily made with really low budget materials and finishing but there are some diamonds in the roughs that I've actually incorporated into every day wear and worn more than once. I'm always super bummed with those super itchy polyester costumes with the tied open back, ug. The below Warrior Maiden costume from 3Wishes (Sexy Lingerie so maybe NSFW) is not one of these shoddy costumes.
The complete costume set included a dress with zippered back (no velcro, yay!), faux leather harness with actual buckles, an elastic braided headband, and a pair of faux leather bracers (not pictured here). I ordered a size medium. I feel the dress' length was a bit short, however I am 5'8" and was wearing heels so the length overall wasn't too bad. I can definitely see myself incorporating the harness and bracers into other looks. This costume is pretty versatile. The shape of the dress could go Grecian/Roman pretty easily with some accessory swaps and even be a pretty dress for an evening out dressed up with some jewelry. Determined to get a backless dress to work for below 60 weather, I paired it with a super cozy knit sweater, some thigh high sweater socks, and boots. Is Rustic Medieval a thing? Can we make a thing?
Pair this outfit with a Dragon Age moleskin to really feel like an RPG character, hehe. I added a vintage pin to the harness to dress it up a bit. Thankfully the headband was fairly stretchy to fit my giant noggin'.
If there was one gaming franchise that swept these past few months by storm, it's Fallout 4. I've been amassing quite the collection of Fallout apparel from work, figured I'd just go full Fallout with this outfit. Pin-up hair? Check. Vault 111 hoodie? Check. Vault Boy Socks? Check. Bottle Cap Earrings? Check. Nuka Cola girl tee? Check. Where's a German Shepard when I need one?

I was at Comikaze this past weekend and thought where better to rock a Captain Marvel inspired outfit than at a comic convention?! Cassie from Femmecraft sent me this super lovely Captain Marvel necklace that was the inspiration for this outfit. I got mistaken for a Disneybound Ariel more than once. Curse you red hair! (Not really, ilu 5ever) Make sure you guys favorite Femmecraft on Etsy and check out her site for lots more comic book and lady-empowering inspired jewelry.
The necklace came packaged inside a resealable plastic sleeve wrapped in adorable polka-dot paper. The necklace feels substantial and has some heft to it. The materials used are definitely of quality.
