Brr, It's Cold in Here

Alec Ruest – Shoe Sales

Jacket – The Bay

Cutoffs – Target

Now that it’s getting colder and winter is settling in, it's time to tuck away the summer clothes and bust out the dumpy, shapeless sweaters. I personally have the hardest time picking out a good sweater from the thrift store, but can't afford a real sweater from a real store. What am I to do?

Does anyone know a legit place where I can get some quality winter duds fo' cheap? I’m in a permanent state of freezing over here!

Jegging Pride

Necklace - Forever 21
Oxfords - Salvation Army

Today's topic: Jeggings!
What do you think of them? I personally think they're great. I don't know why they didn't come into fruition long ago. It's as if, very recently, someone finally figured out that a lot of people have a lot of different body shapes. WOWZERS! What a breakthrough!

Celebrities wear them

Conan O'Brien wears them:


And I'm not ashamed to admit that I wear them.
Jegging pride!

I've said it before and I'll say it again, thrifting is the s@#$.
One man's junk is another man's treasure, and this manbearpig/bloggette has found a Scrooge McDuck's haul of treasure from Thrift Stores over the years. 

Ch-ch-check it out today, what are you waiting for?!?!?!

Comic Con-Artist

On Halloweekend I ventured over to my first ever Central Canada Comic Con.
I was super nervous because I feel like a poser, having recently began my foray into all things comic/graphic novel/etc. I read Alan Moore's "Watchmen" last summer and it changed my life.

So I worked on an Altair (from Assassins Creed) costume for a month, popped it on and went to the Convention Centre on Saturday the 29th and was blown away.

Here's a collection of photos from my day.

The sickest Ghostbuster outfit I've ever seen. It had blinky lights!

He could actually transform and had working lights. Fun, if you're down to lie face down on the floor.

All in all it was a super dooper fun time, I totally nerded out but it was great and inspiring. I recommend anyone going next year if not only for the visual feast.
