OOTD: Fashion Al Fresco!

 

fafThe weather is beginning to cool down and the evenings are getting shorter. Summer is almost over. But that doesn’t mean that I am feeling glum! I am feeling very inspired by French cinema today, romance and art. My outfit consists of a simple black leotard from Lipsy, paired with a beautiful laced skirt and black flats from Dunnes Stores. To accessorize, I wore my trusty bowler hat from H&M and a Harry Potter inspired bracelet from Etsy.

Kendall & Kylie: Jenneration X

jenEvery single generation has it’s style icons. Women and men that spark the latest fashion trends and inspire new looks. In my opinion, the biggest style icons of 2014 thus far has been the Jenner sisters. They went from timid pre-teens who stood in their older sisters shadows, to blossoming young fashionistas almost over night. Their personal style has developed so much this past year and they are continuing to grow and learn what suits them as individuals.

For quite some time Kylie was the shy sister of the Jenner/Kardashian family. She kept mostly to herself until recently she decided to step out of the shadows of her other sisters and embrace her own personal style. Kylie’s instagram selfies went from duck faces to vogue material in the space of a year! Her new and imporved style is unique, daring &  bold. I love it!kylieaccessories

Kylie’s favorite look is dressy/casual. She is really good at paring simple, key items together to create a solid, trendy look. She favors dark colour palettes and sometimes adds a pop of colour to her outfit to really make her stand out from the crowd. Kylie’s trademark’s are her pouty lips and her blue hair. To get Kylie’s look, simply use a lip liner that matches your natural lip colour, over draw your lips and slick on some lip balm to get an instant, Kylie inspired pout! To imitate her fashion forward hairstyle, try using coloured hair chalk on your ends, it’s simple to apply and easy to wash out. You can experiment with so many different colours using hair chalks.

To get Kylie’s rock chic look, try paring a simple grey vest top or a band tee with a faux leather jacket for instant style points. Kyle is a big fan of accessories, she loves layering necklaces and wearing classic aviator sunglasses. She also loves to wear black nail varnish and often gets her nails filed into cat claw tips to add some extra edge to her look.

Kendall’s style is very different to Kylie’s. Kendall likes to wear casual yet chic outfits, that are comfortable to wear while still remaining on trend. She usually opts for slouchy tops and knitted jumpers, and pairs them with stylish with skinny jeans. She always keeps her make up natural and fresh and sometimes opts for a coloured lip to make her pout really stand out!

Kendall is a huge fan of knit wear and can often be spotted wearing beanie hats and scarves while out and about. Living in Sunny L.A Kendall knows it’s important to have the right eye wear for each event or outing. She likes to experiment with different styles of sunglasses and isn’t afraid to try something a little out of her comfort zone sometimes. Which I love!
kkKendall is a girly girl and can be seen wearing some of the most beautiful dresses on the red carpet and press related events. Her height allows her to wear some stunning gowns, in many different shapes, cuts and styles. Her favorite dress style seems to be short and girly. She favors simple colour palettes, especially white and cream. Which are two colours that contrast beautifully with her sun kissed skin tone and hair colour. To get her casual look I suggest pairing comfy slouchy jumpers with fitted jeans along with a comfy pair of boots. Kendall’s style is effortless so keep your make up natural and wear your hair down, give your roots a spritz of sea salt spray and shake it up a for that California girl look!

Dublin Comic Con 2014!

 

dcc2

On the weekend of August 9th & 10th, I attended the second annual Dublin City Comic Con for the first time. I traveled to Dublin with two friends of mine, we stayed in a hotel close by to the convention and were ready for a fun filled weekend of geeky enjoyment and cosplaying!

There was so much to see and do at Dublin City Comic Con, such as movie props & costumes, fake sets, interactive sets, vendors, artwork, merchandise, archery, a zombie survival course, panel discussions and autograph signings etc. It was an amazing weekend event for all.

On Sunday I cosplayed as a female Quicksilver (above) and on the day I met loads of amazing cosplayers who cosplayed as some of my favorite characters. It was amazing to see so many people enjoying cosplay and getting excellent feedback for their costumes.

My friend Tom did a rule 63 Catwoman cosplay which was fantastic! (below)

One of my favorite cosplays of the entire weekend was this Batman/Gotham inspired family Cosplay! I thought the kids make up was fantastic and the attention to detail of each of their costumes was amazing. I also saw other family cosplays, there was a few Dad’s dressed up as Batman while pushing strollers around the convention floor and there was toddlers and babies dressed in all in one superhero costumes. It was adorable to say the least!

One of the coolest things to ever happen, happened to me. I MET XENA WARRIOR PRINCESS!

And of course, I bowed in worship. “I’m not worthy! I’m not worthy!”

All the cosplayers I met during the weekend were so lovely and happy to take photo’s with people who admired their costumes. There was a really great atmosphere, especially on the Sunday. Everyone bonded over their love for sci-fi, it was such a fantastic experience.

There was so many fantastic sets on display on the floor of the convention. There was so many stalls selling different kinds of merchandise from all kinds of fandoms. You could buy custom artwork from artists, comics, autographs, pretty much everything and anything you can think of in regards to geek related culture, Dublin Comic Con probably had it.Fotor0815202428

If you’re thinking of attending Dublin Comic Con next year, or any convention for that matter and want to cosplay ,I strongly advise you to take the plunge and cosplay! It really adds to the con experience and gives you a confidence boost as well as a great way to start conversations with other con goers. Soon enough you’ll get the cosplay bug! WARNING: IT’S AWESOME.

DSC_0512There was some amazing sets & props to take pictures with at Dublin Comic Con. My friends and I had a blast taking silly pictures with sets from some of our favorite t.v shows & films.Fotor0816131911

I had a wonderful time experiencing my first time at Dublin Comic con, it definitely won’t be my last visit! I already can not wait for my next opportunity to cosplay at a convention. I also out together a Dublin Comic Con Vlog if you’d like to hear more about my convention experience.

Dublin Comic Con, i’ll see you again next year!
