It’s kind of hard to finish off Nerdvember during Thanksgiving AND the last USC football game of the year. But I did try.
Day 28: Elf from Rise of the Guardian
Inspiration: Christmas tree decoration at the office! I wasn’t going to wear the same ol’ elf hat for that. 😉
Components: The beautiful, handmade shrug from Pandoras Kloset. (Same person that I got my Jayne’s arm warmers from. And no, I cannot afford a full coat.) Red t-shirt. Red leg warmers.
Challenges: Remembering to pick up the long hood–goes all the way down to my butt–before going to the bathroom, or sit down at my desk. Comments from Muggles: I thought someone would’ve commented on the weird/funky shrug, but nope. Nothing. I think my coworkers are getting used to my “sense of style.”
Day 29: Helen of Troy/Lady Trojan
Inspiration: I first brought out Helen last year at USC Homecoming. Since I missed it this year, I was hoping the weather would be warm enough for Notre Dame game to bring her out. And it was! Components: The dress. The cape. The underbust corset. The sandals. The helmet. Extra point for my grandmother’s red shawl with gold embroidery, not shown in this picture, and the red leg warmers I wore over the sandals earlier in the day, you know, at 6:30 a.m. when I arrived on campus to set up the tailgate party for USC Alumni Club of LA Beach Cities.

Challenges: I was going to wear this to the Coliseum, but having some drunken Irish fans hollering at me on my way to my last tailgate changed my mind. I know, it sucks. And the world shouldn’t be that way, but it is. I’m not going to put myself in a situation. Besides, short skirt going up and down the Coliseum steps is just not good sense. Heh.
Comments from Muggles: “Fight on!” naturally. 🙂
Day 30: Hulk at Home
Inspiration: Nothing. Nada. It’s the last day before we go back for the full work week. I’m going to be lazy about it.
Components: Purple shorts I bought for Hulk Bunny which is now my lounge around the house shorts. And Hulk t-shirt Christine bought for me.
Challenges: Getting out of my comfy pink robe to put that on. LOL
Comments from Muggles: No muggles here, fool. Just me, B, and Burt the Hippo.
