Having just finished nursing a week-long hangover from San Diego Comic Con, I feel it is my duty to report upon the wild Party Wolf life that we had been boasting about pre-SDCC. So here it is, the round up of Party Wolf adventures 2014.. or… “How I felt like my body was physically dying, but I kept on anyhow… FOR THE GOOD OF THE TEAM.” I’d like to start by saying, DESPITE HOW IT LOOKS, we are all into just hanging out with our friends, and looking for a good time to meet other like minded people. Of course it’s always nice to be surprised by a celebrity sighting and cool swag, but if this Comic Con has done anything, it has only reinforced the fact that no matter HOW SWANK DA CLUB MIGHT BE, if your homies aren’t there, you’re gonna end up bailing to go find them and have good times somewhere else. The party wolf went through a pokemon-sort of evolution and became… THE PARTY TIGER. LOYAL TO HER PRIDE/CLAN WHATEVER. ROARRRR.
Everyone loves the 90s, that much is obvious from the influx of 90s clothing coming back into style right now, but MAN oh man it’s a great time to COSPLAY from the 90s, too!
Who doesn’t remember the corny 90s X-Men cartoon? We could all hum that opening theme song on command! Inspired by our love for this cheesy rendition of our most beloved X-Men, we dressed up for Wondercon this year to show our love!
Do you like mutants?
Lady Yume Ninja of NinjaSovereign.com was kindly enough to invite the kingdom of Defective Geeks to her birthday celebration. The theme was Game of Thrones and for one night, all rivalry was put aside for a party of costumes, food and getting silly with all our too-busy and creative friends.
I went as closet-cosplay dragon, aka I just put my Happy Hoodie Friends dragon hat on and called it a day. (didn’t have time to go all out… I had to work that day. Sad face). Surprisingly, we were lacking a Daenerys and so I didn’t get to perch on anyone. Gizzy B went as ‘Drunk Cersei’ and lived up to her character’s reputation that night.
Sweet Streets LA is one of my favorite annual art show – it’s always fun and always colorful. As usual, Hi Hi Caro and Bubble Punch put the entire event together and this year it was held in downtown Culver City at the WWA Gallery. This gallery proved too small for the event and there was a long line of attendees that waited to get in throughout the night. People stayed even when it rained!
Michelle Nguyen of Chubby Bunny and Tavuchi from SPANK! also debuted their fashion collaboration with a fashion show and a pop up store that sold all sorts of super-cute accessories and clothing. SPANK! is a popular clothing line in Harajuku, Japan which embraces the ‘kawaii’ nature of Harajuku fashion.
The fashion show was a lot of fun with upbeat music and energetic models wearing Chubby Bunny and SPANK! accessories and clothing. I ended up buying two new bows to add to my “Chubby Bunny Collection.” You can buy these items from Chubby Bunny at her website!
This year, Sailor Mizz attended the event with me and we captured the event on video, including all of the fashion how! Hope you enjoy what I put together below.
Lots of photos below!
