Nerdvember Day 27: Han Solo

Inspiration: We were going over to our friends’ house for Thanksgiving dinner. Since we don’t have many Nerdvember days left, I really, REALLY want to wear my brand new Gold Bubble Clothing’s Sherlock Holmes dress since I didn’t get to do it last time. The dress looks AWESOME because it’s nice and snug. However, I thought about all the eating we were going to do and then I reconsidered my choice of attire. An A-line dress that does not restrict the belly is a much better choice! Components: Her Universe Han Solo dress I bought from Hot Topic. Star pendant....

Nerdvember Day 26: Firefly

Inspiration: Working half day! I wasn’t going to put too much effort into it. 😉 Components: Jason Palmer’s Firefly t-shirt. Another ThinkGeek vintage Jayne zip up hoodie. There was a fluffy pompom on top of the hood but I lost it years ago. #Nerdvember Day 26: #Firefly. #settostunning Classic @thinkgeek Jayne hoodie + Jason Palmer’s tee. #Browncoats A photo posted by oakley boren (@oakmonster) on Nov 11, 2014 at 7:38am PST Challenges: Wearing geek t-shirt feels a little bit like cheating. LOL Comments from Muggles: Nada banana just as expected....

Nerdvember Day 25: Iron Man

Inspiration: My hair. I didn’t want to wash it so I started going through the closet for an outfit that I would work with a fauxhawk pony tail. Components: Biker-ish boots. “Powered by Stark” from ThinkGeek. Iron Man fingerless gloves I bought from Geeky Mamas when it was still in Cerritos. However, I think they got it from Nerdifacts. And of course, the fauxhawk pony tail, a tribute to Tony’s awesome hair. #Nerdvember Day 25: Iron Man. #settostunning Gloves from @geekymamas_official #marvel #ironman #starkindustries A photo posted by oakley boren (@oakmonster) on Nov 11, 2014 at 8:17am PST Challenges: I...

Nerdvember Day 24: TARDIS

Inspiration: My brand new Optimystical Studios St. John Ambulance pendant. I bought it specifically for my Victorian TARDIS cosplay. Components: The pendant. Blue shirt. TARDIS socks. The long cardigan and my Converse (not shown) were a throw back to the Tenth Doctor. #Nervember Day 24: #TARDIS feat. Pendant of St. John from Optimystical Studios. #settostunning #DoctorWho A photo posted by oakley boren (@oakmonster) on Nov 11, 2014 at 7:46am PST Challenges: These socks and the Converse don’t seem to like each other very much… Comment from Muggles: Not even a “You look cute today!” Oh well. 🙂...

Nerdvember Day 23: The Fifth Element

Inspiration: Well, I’ve got this t-shirt thinking that anyone who’s ever seen The Fifth Element would get it right away. Not so much, actually. Component: The Fhloston Paradise t-shirt I bought from ThinkGeek eons ago. And a napping cat…who is not ours. #Nerdvember Day 23: Living in Fhloston Paradise featuring #ClarkKent #NotOurCat. #settostunning #fifthelement A photo posted by oakley boren (@oakmonster) on Nov 11, 2014 at 1:28pm PST Challenge: Deciding on what to do with the selfie. Napping Clark provided a solution. Comments from Muggles: Nothing. But I got a great comment from BKK Greg though: he thought “Fhloston” was...

Nerdvember Day 22: Party Avengers

Inspiration:  I originally planned to wear my Gold Bubble Sherlock’s wallpaper dress to my friend’s party tonight. But due to my USC superstition of not wearing bra during USC/fucla game, I had to change the idea around. A bra-less flat chest in a tight polyester dress is bad news for everyone. Components: Her Universe Men of Marvel dress which I bought from Hot Topic. S.H.I.E.L.D earrings from Optimystical Studios. Yellow cardigan from Mod Cloth. Boots. #Nerdvember Day 22: #Avengers for a dinner party. #settostunning A photo posted by oakley boren (@oakmonster) on Nov 11, 2014 at 7:03pm PST Challenges: Remembering...
