5 Fandom Friday: Characters I’d Love To Dress Up As For Halloween

5 Fandom Friday: Characters I’d Love To Dress Up As For Halloween

If you’re participating in The Nerdy Girlie’s 5 Fandom Friday, you may have noticed a few of us have made some DLC’s to complement the already lengthy blog prompt list courtesy of The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick. You can check out my first DLC for 5 Fandom Friday: the GG Pack (the Geeky Gal Pack)!

I am all about casual costumes this year. I don’t want to spend a lot of money or put in a ton of effort. I found so many “closet cosplay” ideas that are just awesome. I even found some links for you to use to purchase pieces of costumes! May I present to you five casual characters I’d love to dress up as for Halloween. *Some affiliate links have been used. Check out my about me page to learn more about these links.

 

Hipster Velma from Scooby Doo

2bfd90d07e2fe034b10161f2ff6ef92d.jpg

Did it have to be “hipster” Velma and not just regular Velma? Maybe not but this fan art take on Velma looks comfy and edgy. You need some stylish hipster glasses, a magnifying glass necklace, an oversized orange cardigan, red skirt, orange leg warmers, and red sneakers.

 

Mavis from Hotel Transylvania

99898920f0683944e116b3bca8275779.jpg

One of my favorite kids’ movies right now (and one I will be re-watching for Halloween) is Hotel Transylvania! I immediately identified with Mavis and her cute style. This comfy outfit needs a black t-shirt dress, mesh long sleeved shirt, red and black striped leggings, and red sneakers.

 

Casual Usagi/Serena from Sailor Moon

678b6191cf9dea002f08b7261ac8d234.jpg

Usagi’s outfits are super 90’s but still really cute and simple. Plus I’m a huge Sailor Moon fan! To put this costume together, you will need to style your hair in Sailor Moon’s iconic style or invest in a wig, a pink sweater, black skirt, and black sneakers.

 

Haruhi from Ouran High School Host Club

latest.png

When we first meet Haruhi, she’s dressed very casually (and like a boy according to the members of the OHSHC). To complete this costume you need nerdy glasses, a white button up, purple/pink sweater, black skinny jeans, and white sneakers.

 

Casual Anna from Disney’s Frozen (center)

tumblr_nnifrhYK4s1sjodmuo3_1280.png

Anna is pretty cute and anyone can tell this is her from her cute hairstyle. Band together with your friends for a Disney Halloween party and have everyone come as a casual Disney princess from punziella’s drawings! To get Anna’s look, buy her wig here, her gray top here, her floral overalls here, her canvas bag here, and her white sneakers here.

MCFT: Geeky Wedding Items under $50

With wedding things on my brain, I’ve been scouring Pinterest and Google for wedding ideas. I want to make sure there’s a piece of my fiance and I in each part of the wedding. We both love Doctor Who and Marvel. Not to mention Disney! I thought I’d share some of my favorite geeky wedding items I’ve come across so far. I adore little personal details and these little items fit the bill perfectly. *Some affiliate links have been used. Check out my about me page to learn more about these links.

Aren’t these Comic Book Paper Flowers adorable?! They could be used for bouquets, boutonnieres, or on the cake! They are also a part of Amazon’s handmade department. Choose your comic, accent color, and embellishment! For $25 for 5 flowers, you need these!

51XRjIsQiyL._UL1500_.jpg

Have you seen the newest Spider-man movie? It really stole my heart. My fiance loved it as well and these cuff links would be awesome for his suit!

 

il_570xN.378213283_lzld.jpg

I’ve been pining over a TARDIS ring box for years. This one is handmade, hand-painted, and super cute. Use it for a ring box for the day of the wedding then have it as a keepsake to look back on your special day.

Video Game Wedding Session
