Believe it or not this was my first time attending! I don’t know how I’ve never been, I’ve been to APE! Anyhow, it was ****magical**** I just wish that I had more time there! If I go again next year I will for sure get there earlier or stay later.
Anyhow, here’s what I wore!
Also, what you can’t see from the pics are these awesome earrings I got from Domino Dollhouse!
Which by some magical coincidence match the buttons on the dress perfectly! And both items just happened to arrive the day before the Con!
Dress: Forever21+ Dotted Button Front Dress size 3x
Bolero: B & lu size 2
leggings: Forever21+ size 2x
Earrings: Domino Dollhouse Bolt of Bright earrings in blue
(also available in hot pink!!)
Necklace: Domino Dollhouse Rococo Dots Necklace and Earring Set
Ok so let me talk a bit about the details, in case you are interested. The Dots dress states it is “button front” but they are actually just for decoration, which is a relief to me, as a button up front of anything is usually a dealbreaker for me. I have problems with the peek-a-boo sides, buttons popping open, popping off, etc.
Also, the dress has a nice rubberized liner at the very top of the dress, to help keep it up. The top is also elasticized. In the pics I am wearing a bra with the dress which I am covering up with the bolero 😛 However when I first got it the day before I just threw it on, no bra, no sweater and took the dog for a walk. I felt totally supported, plus it is lined so I wasn’t too worried about my nipples poking anybody’s eye out. I just threw the dress on, and it wasn’t until my arm was getting irritated that I realized it has a zipper on the side! So the zipper was going down, and it kind of bummed me out… but then I realized that at the top of the zip is a hook and eye, to keep it closed, nice!
And the BESTEST thing about this dress???? POCKETS!!!! seriously, they were total lifesaver at Wondercon.
The earrings I totally love, I mean what’s not to love?
It’s like absolutely perfectly my style. Only problem I have is with the earrings. When I opened the package, the bottom of one of the hearts was already chipped! But I love the necklace and plan to wear it a ton, so I don’t want to return it. I’m sure if I wanted to they’d be dolls about it. So far I’ve returned 2 things to them and they were quick and really nice about it.
Oh, also! May I share a LOVELY piece of artwork I picked up?
I LOVE THIS SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I just can’t stop loving it. It’s too good. The drama! The passion!! The mustard!!!
So the artist’s name is Joshua Ellingson and he has a website!
I passed up the chance to buy a print of a fat Wonder Woman and I can’t stop beating myself up about it ): You can see a her on his website though. Apparently it was made for a Fat WonderWoman project that I was totally unaware of until now! Well, I had seen one of the pics on Tumblr but that was it.
I also bought another print of his, but have no pic of it, it’s the Dia de los Muertos sugar skull one. yay!
Did anybody else go to WonderCon?? Share!
