Hope everyone is having a great 4th whether you’re in the States or not 🙂 I decided to celebrate America’s birthday by Disneybounding as Captain America, the girly version. The dress is from Hot Topic Her Universe clothing line. My Avengers pin is from disney. A cute bow I bought at a geek fair and ballon purse from Sarahs curtesy skirts.
I headed to Disneyland to get a picture with the famous super hero. He definitely approved of my outfit.
I even got one with Thor don’t ever tell him that Loki is your favorite He was offended. I told him I did like him…”Umm you have a good body” lol
Oh and red, white and blue desserts were had. A 60th celebration cupcake (lemon with a raspberry filling) and a Raspberry Rose macaroon fillies with whole raspberries. Mmm so yummy.
After dessert I got to see my favorite mainstreet performers the Dapper Dans.
I was so happy I got a picture with them. I love their red, white, and blue dapper outfits.
It was a great day even though I was there for just a bit. I did manage to get some sparkly 60th ears. I love that they are blue. I love blue.
It was a great way to start the 4th. Do you dress up for the 4th? Do you have a favorite superhero.
Hope everyone had a great fourth!
I am a proud geek. Love shows like Arrow, Daredevil, and Agent Carter. I grew up watching Batman the animated series and X Men the animated series too and let’s not forget all the great Comic Book movies in the last couple years. At the same time as well as being a geek I’m a girly girl too. I love dresses and heels and having my hair all curled, so you can only imagine my excitement when I heard about the new Marvel line by Her Universe at Hot Topic.
It has a great pinup style look to all the pieces and a retro glam vibe.
I rushed to the store the minute it came on sale. The online store is sadly sold out. I ended up getting the Loki dress, Captain America dress, and Black Widow jacket. The detail is amazing.
My favorite has to be the Loki dress. I love the detail of the head pieces around the edge. It’s very geeky, but subtle. You can dress it up with heels like I’ve done or down with flip flops and a denim jacket. As for dress sizing I’m usually a size 8 and found the medium in the Loki and Captain dress worked well. Unfortunately the Black Widow jacket I had to size up to a large since It was too tight to wear over a sweater. If I was wearing the jacket over a thinner top the medium would have worked. I didn’t get the other three pieces in the collection. The Thor sailor dress is darling though and so is the Tony Stark bomber jacket. The Black Widow dress is 60s mod chic, but not my style.
I highly recommend checking out the collection in stores and if you are a geeky gal or have a geeky gal in your life definitely get a piece or two from the collection. Thanks for reading and have a Geektasic day!
