may the fourth be with you.

It's one of my favorite days in May, May the Fourth aka Star Wars Day! Naturally I had to wear a very nerdy outfit.

Photos by my husband.

What I'm wearing:
Shirt: ThinkGeek, super old
Skirt: made by me!
Belt: eBay, old
Shoes: Inkkas
Necklace: ThinkGeek

So first things first, I'm wearing my first skirt! Is it a little too wide in the hips? Maybe. Is it a smidge too long? Also maybe. But I made it from scratch and it took a good five hours so I'm going to wear the heck out of it! I'm also planning on bettering my sewing skills and making more skirts, a dress or two, etc. I hadn't used my sewing machine in years, so it's nice to get back into it.

How are you celebrating Star Wars Day?

Hope everyone is still staying home & staying safe!

casual cosplay: Hotaru Tomoe/Sailor Saturn

I thought it'd be fun to try a casual cosplay of Hotaru Tomoe (later Sailor Saturn) from Sailor Saturn, since we're stuck in quarantine and I happened to have some Overtone Purple for Black Hair hair dye!

What I'm wearing:
Turtleneck: H&M
Skirt: Express, old
Tights: Target
Boots: Target
Brooch: vintage

I added the brooch because it reminds me a bit of the crystal in her Sailor Guardian uniform:

Overall I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. Who should I do next?!

in the name of the moon.

Clearly I've been on a Sailor Moon inspired kick lately. For this outfit I kept it pretty casual, with some Sailor Moon inspired accessories, and the Colourpop 'Pretty Guardian' palette for my makeup.

beauty: colourpop sailor moon collection

This is long overdue, but here is my review of Colourpop's Sailor Moon collection that debuted in February! I purchased the shadow palette, lipstick sets, and the blushes—I didn't get the glitters because I'm not a big glitter fan. I'm glad I bought everything right when it launched, because unfortunately everything is still sold out!

(Also, none of these links are affiliate links, and this post isn't sponsored by Colourpop; I just really love Colourpop and Sailor Moon.)

First of all, the packaging is amazing—so many pretty and shimmery foils!

rose gold.

I randomly got the idea to do a rose gold centric outfit a week or so ago, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

What I'm wearing:
Top: Loft, old
Skirt: Gap via ThredUP
Shoes: ModCloth
Necklace: similar
Bangle: ASOS
Ring: Amazon

Makeup
Eyes: She Palette by Colourpop
Eyeliner: Tattoo Liner by KVD Vegan Beauty
Lipstick: "Saint" by KVD
Foundation: Colourpop

The rose gold trend has cooled a bit, but I still think it's a great color that goes well with black and burgundy in particular.
