So you guys know I’m a total geek, right? No? It’s true: I love science fiction and fantasy (SF exploring gender/feminism and/or first contact are my fave, but I also love utopia/dystopia!). I love animation, comic books (Saga is absolutely blowing my mind lately), Doctor Who, Sherlock, Firefly, Marvel movies, Star Wars, fanfiction, video games, etc. I’ve been to SF conventions, SF/Linux conventions, Sherlock conventions, etc. I love nerdiness, fandom, and the unabashed willingness to be enthusiastic about things that I find fun/cool/interesting.
So, of course, it spills over into my clothing choice on occasion. I’ve been trying to figure out ways to include some of my nerdier T-shirts in outfits are a little more than just jeans + tee.
So here’s my formula for today: T-shirt + skirt + boots. + geek. 😉
Last month’s Day 11 outfit (one of my faves from last month!)
[Sidenote: Are you guys as sick of these boots as I am? Don’t get me wrong, I freaking love these boots (so comfortable). But I’m ready for some variety. Saturday (and two new pairs of shoes!) canNOT come soon enough! It’s really cold here today, so it was either these boots or pants, and I didn’t feel like pants with this t-shirt.]
But this shirt! I love Totoro. When I watched it with my boys for the first time about two years ago, I couldn’t believe how I’d lived that long without it! Such a good film, just pure magic. If you haven’t seen it, do yourself a favor and get your hands on a copy! Libraries often carry it, it’s really popular with kids (there are no bad guys or scary parts).
Do you have a favorite Miyazaki film? I’m also partial to Spirited Away and Howl’s Moving Castle!
