My Elvira look

On Saturday I went to Wonder Con with my comic obsessed nerd baby daddy. I saw some very interesting things.

A girl with a Chewbacca backpack
Chewbacca in a wheel chair (really, the guy who played him)
The lady from the shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho"
Elvira, but it was 20 dollars to take a pic with her and get her autograph
A red Power Ranger with a stuffed crotch
1 Harajuku girl
My emo non-pregnant twin
Steam punks

I came to the conclusion that most of the people that stand in the lobby and take pictures with young girls and children are registered sex offenders, disguising themselves in full body costumes such as storm troopers and Iron Man. There was also girl's volleyball competition going on and a cheer competition. How ideal. My boyfriend bought me $13.00 worth of food. That included 3 tacos, beans, and a 3 dollar can of soda. It was very satisfying. Especially after standing/sitting in line for 30 minutes. Oh my aching back.

Yes, that is Hello Kitty as La Virgen de Guadalupe. It was made for me by Dolly Cool Care Check her out! I love her jewelry. I had admired it after seeing Dora wear her line and then Dora had this made for me and mailed it to me. awwww. How sweet. Big thanks to you both!

dress- thrifted but from F-21
shoes- Jessica Simpson, from Marshalls

Oh yeah, it snowed! More on that later...


  1. Ooh snow! Don't you live in Cali?! Does it snow there??!
    I've never been to a comic event but i can just imagine the sights!!! I have seen them on tv programmes and I am pretty sure that most of that is pretty close to reality. Love your necklace too, so nice for it to be gifted to you!

  13. Lol at sex offending storm troopers - Elvira: Mistress of the snark.
    You look great, but did you not get a picture of your emo twin? Or was there too much fringe in her face?


  14. I'm so glad that you like the necklace. Your blooming self looks radiant! And yes agreed, comic cons attract oddballs - fact! :)

  15. I love your Elvira hair!
    you look mas bella in black vestido.
    About time your wearing your collar.
    I'm so happy you loved your Virgen de la Kitty.
    I agree those places are crawling with gente rara.

  16. Yeesh. Sounds a lot like my experience with Folsom Street Fair, only more sinister because all the perversion is hidden under furry comic book character costumes.

    And I'm pretty sure if you were reincarnated as a necklace (if that's even possible) you would come back as a Hello Kitty La Virgen de Guadalupe. It's just so ridiculously perfect that you're wearing that, I can't even tell you.

  17. that's such a beautiful dress sophia! :) i can't believe you saw a real like harijuku girl eeek! wonder con sounds hilarious! tiring but worth it for the food and sights! xxx
