Today I am wrapping up my Orlando MegaCon 2017 cosplay posts with a last set of photos from the convention’s last day, Sunday. I previously posted photos from Friday and Saturday of the con – be sure to check those out to see even more creativity and talent!

I had such a blast at MegaCon 2017! It came a bit abruptly for me so I wasn’t as prepared for it as I would’ve liked but, nevertheless, I had an amazing time!
Since there was SO much going and my dad (who acted as my blog photographer) and I took SO many photos, I decided to split up my MegaCon coverage into three “types” of posts – yes, expect a lot of MegaCon ahead – Cosplay, My Experience, and What I Wore. I’m going to start with my first of three Cosplay posts sharing some of the various cosplays I saw over the weekend. Splitting them up by day, I will begin with Friday (as I did not attend the con on Thursday).

Living in Los Angeles, I don’t normally get to see the drastic change from a cold winter to a warm spring. This particular winter has been a bizarre one though (hello, climate change!) with lots and lots of rain in LA resulting in much colder (and wetter) weather than you’d imagine for our usually year-round sunny city. I have noticed a return to warmer – and dryer – weather recently and hopefully it stays that way. LA people are just not cut out for the cold/rain – luckily I grew up in Florida so it doesn’t bother me.
The change in season brought more than just warmer weather and more sun, it also means a change in in our makeup and wardrobe. It’s time to put away those big winter coats and boots and time to start breaking out floral prints and pastels!

I think this is the earliest I’ve ever put up a Best Dressed list! Yay – go me!! I really haven’t been feeling very well all week (meaning no annual Oscars viewing party with friends for me) so it’s been a bit difficult doing, well, anything but seeing as how I’m leaving in 2 days to go to AUSTRALIA (!!!), I really wanted to push myself to get this post up ASAP.
Anyway…the Oscars were this past Sunday and despite being majorly sick in bed, I was still able to watch (and tweet) the broadcast in real time! And what an Oscars it was! Of course, there was that infamous Best Picture snafu we’ve all heard about by now… Despite that, overall, I thought it was a really good show and that Jimmy Kimmel did a great job hosting.
La La Land was one of my Top 5 Films of the year but I was glad to see one of my other favorites, Hacksaw Ridge, getting some love and taking home 2 awards. I’m usually pretty spot on with my Oscars predictions each year but this year with 18 out of 24, I was a bit off. Some winners threw me for a loop (i.e. Suicide Squad) and others (Fantastic Beasts, Hacksaw Ridge, Arrival) I was genuinely happy to be wrong about.
But this post is about FASHION so let’s talk about that. There were some real stunners on the red carpet. I miss my flowy gowns of awards shows past, but it’s definitely interesting to see how fashion evolves over the years. The biggest color trends I saw were lots of metallics (especially gold), black, white, and red. There were also lots of long sleeves, high slits, high necklines, low plunging necklines, capes, and velvet!
Who worked these trends the best? Keep reading for my Oscars Best Dressed List!

If you’ve been following me for the past couple months, I’m sure you’ve seen me mention Mystic Messenger. It easily became my biggest new fandom of 2016. Well, last year, I went to my very first non-convention cosplay meetup. It was a gathering for Mystic Messenger fans to come together, cosplay as their favorite characters, buy merch, and hang out.

Having spent most of my life in Florida, I haven’t really experienced a “true” winter complete with snow, ice, cold, and SNOW (did I say that twice?). Still, I always looked forward to “chilly” nights and getting to see my own breath in the air. I loved turning on the heat in the house, bundling up in blankets, and drinking hot beverages. I now live in Los Angeles and while the winters here are not much cooler than Florida, they are at least a lot less humid. This winter, however, I’ve been pretty excited by the unprecedented amount of rain in LA and the drop in temperatures (I’m talking low 40s). There’s still no snow but it’s “cold” enough that it actually feels like winter – at least for LA.
Today, I’m sharing with you my Top 10 Winter Essentials! Whether you live somewhere with just “chilly” weather or you’re currently snowed in your house, these things should all make your winter a little cozier.
Awards season is in full swing and you know what that means! It’s time for my annual red carpet Best Dressed lists! We’re starting things off with last Sunday’s Golden Globes ceremony where La La Land received a totally deserved record-breaking 7 wins! Seriously, if you haven’t seen this movie yet…Go. See. It. As for the fashion (because that’s what this post is about), I was really feeling a lot of the looks this year! There were more plunging necklines than I’ve ever seen at one show, but they were done very tastefully and different so it never seemed like we were seeing the same thing over and over again. Other trends we saw were lots of sparkle, metallics, and the color yellow.

Yesterday I shared my favorite Anime, Disney, and Doctor Who inspired geek dresses. Today, I’m bringing you a few more with pieces inspired by some of my favorite fandoms Marvel, Harry Potter, and Star Wars.
Be sure to check out yesterday’s Part One post!
I love how diverse geek fashion has developed for women these past years. We now have so many ways to represent our fandoms and to do so in whatever our unique clothing style might be. Do you like to keep things casual with tank and skater dresses? Check. Do you want something classy and sophisticated with a touch of lace? Check. How about something just subtly geeky? Check. What about something full on geeky and/or could almost be considered cosplay? Check.
It really is a great time to be a geek lady!
Today, I’m going to share with you some of my favorite geek DRESSES. As a little girl, I was lucky to find a fitted women’s geek tee – oh, how I would’ve gone crazy for a pretty geek dress like these!
There were so many wonderful dresses, I decided to do a Part Two to this post which will be up tomorrow.
