Nerdy Cupcakes & Cosplay Karaoke!

Ok, so, the night before MegaCon, the Treasure Coast Cosplayers celebrated one year of Cosplay Karaoke at my bar. To help make it a night to remember, I wanted to make some nerdy themed cupcakes. Luckily, one of my good friends is an extremely talented artist and baker and she was happy to help me. She taught me how to work with fondant and baked some truly amazing cupcakes. I was so proud of how they turned out!! I may have found a new crafty passion; I really got into working with the fondant!

Everyone, including Sarah and one of my favorite friends, Jo (pictured above) loved them! Since I’ve been posting gallery after gallery, here’s another one for you guys. Happy 1 year anniversary Treasure Coast Cosplayers! Cheers to more years of local cosplay (and karaoke) to come!

Thanks for reading!

Love, GK

How ’bout these apples?

I had written myself a prescription for some intensive retail therapy and today I had my rx filled. After meeting up with a client/friend/ex-coworker for lunch at (the absolutely delicious and addicting) Dales, I hit up a thrift store where i made some major scores.

– A pair of amazing royal blue suede heels: $5
– An adorable zebra print cardigan: $3 (you all know just how much I love cardigans and zebra print!)
– White and Royal Blue horizontal striped sweater: $6 (it’s really a dress and really quite too thin to be qualified as a sweater-dress and surprising large for a size 4 dress…)

I stopped by TJMaxx after the thrift store score for a bump on my bargain-finding high but left empty handed. I found myself in houndstooth heaven and pined over a Steve Madden bag but decided against buying it. (I have the feeling I’ll regret it. I might actually go back tomorrow for it.)

Driving toward home, I decided I was definitely not going to stop at Marshall’s or Ross. Nope. Just heading home. So of course I turned into the plaza, parked and strutted into Ross looking for more discounted deliciousness. I found it.

In Ross I found a completely adorable, floral print, long sleeve dress, on clearance, for $8.49. Perfect for fall! (It’s hard to describe but pics will be posted as soon as I get a chance to rock this baby.)

I also bought at Ross… … Bright. Red. Jeggings. I never thought I’d say that but I did. I had contemplated red jeans in the past but completely scoffed at jeggings. However, all I could think of was how awesome they will look paired with the huge, size “4”, not-so-sweater [dress] and those blue heels! So i took the plunge and bought the jeggings.

Anyway, theres my shopping tales of the day. Here’s what I wore today (and yesterday):

Red shorts from Forever21, Beatles T and my Apple sunglasses from ASOS.

I thought the Apple Shades and The Beatles T went well together (and not just because of the color).

Yesterday, I was pretty bummed. I wasn’t well, missed an [open] audition I was really psyched about and had to call out of work. I loafed around the house miserably all day, moping, so my fabulous Mom made me (and the rest of the family I supposed) chocolate cupcakes!!

To hide my unpretty for the day, I threw on a fedora and faux specs for the pics. The flower clips in my unwashed, messy bushel of hair make it actually look done. (Curly hair really has its perks.)

That’s all for today. I’m lazily posting from my iPhone again so please excuse the poor quality pics and whatever weird typing issues that may reveal themselves post publishing.

Love, GK

I’d also just like to add that today in rock & roll history, Jim Morrison was arrested for a bogus indecent exposure charge he’d been facing as a result of a March 1, 1969 show in Coconut Grove (Miami) show. He died in Paris on July 3, 1971 before the case had gone to trial. -No need to google, I just know this shit.
