Casual Cosplay Friday: Jedi Academy Alumni
Yes, this is a dorky picture. Yes, I'm smiling off into the distance of nothingness. Yes, my self-portrait skills need major improvement but let's just take a moment to talk about this awesome Star Wars shirt.
It was hard picking just one t-shirt for this post since I have several Star Wars related ones, but this one is my newest addition from Hot Topic. I love t-shirts and other accessories like this where fictional academies and organizations are turned into legit looking shirts. And it's for the Jedi Academy? Yeah, count me in!
This week has been a celebration of everything Star Wars at my house and I've been loving it. I talked about the impact Star Wars has on fans all over and also shared a baking session with some awesome Star Wars cookie cutters.
I paired the t-shirt with a diamond polka dot skirt because I really liked the contrast of patterns and it's high waisted so I can tuck in the shirt pretty easily. It is kind of a longer shirt since it's actually for guys but a small fits just fine otherwise on girls. It is also quite soft and lightweight.
Also, let's talk about that bag. I found it on Free Comic Book Day at a thrift store and it's Givenchy. GIVENCHY. I paid $7 for that bad boy and love it. It's a faux suede bag that is perfect for work and school since it's more of a bucket style that can fit folders and books. And comfy. Straps that are comfy on a handbag are super important to me because if I'm going to be lugging it around all day, why do I have to suffer through uncomfortable arm straps?
T-Shirt: Hot Topic
Bottoms: Candie's (Similar)
Shoes: Target (Similar)
This outfit would be perfect for a lunch date, a client meeting, or even just to feel pretty. I wore it while grabbing some late breakfast and dropping my car off to be worked on during this humid day.
Casual Cosplay Friday is a series I want to try and keep doing every Friday and do different fandom themed outfits. I'm going to be picking up a real, big girl tripod this week and maybe find a better space to take pictures now that it is finally nice outside!
What Star Wars fashion do you have?
