30 Day Clothing Challenge~ Day 26: A Mismatched Outfit That You'd Never Wear

 Well this was...fun. (And by that I mean not fun at all) Looking at this picture makes me cringe.

Where to start? First of all, that hoodie is so obnoxiously pink that I seldom wear it unless with copious amounts of black. If I paired it with any of this I would die. Secondly, that tight skirt would look bizarre with such a slouchy hoodie instead of a nice top. That scarf has to be my favorite one, but it's not doing justice to this ensemble. And the flipflops. I don't wear those unless I'm around the house or at the beach (If you can drag me there that is). I don't think you guys will be seeing me in this outfit any time soon!

The outfit I wore yesterday is helping to relieve the pain of looking at that mess up there. It's as basic as I get, but hey, it's summer! It's way too hot for any more layers than this and makeup just runs off your face. I don't care how good your primer is. When the heat index is 103 degrees it aint doing squat.

We went to Islands of Adventure! The ONE redeeming quality of life in Florida is being so close to the theme parks. IOA has always been my favorite (With Universal coming a close second) and last week we decided to make an impromptu trip. We were lucky that it wasn't so crowded because we got to ride all of the rides multiple times AND spent a few hours in the arcade. I could live the rest of my life in an arcade. There aren't many things I like to do better than blow my money on Pacman and arcade shooters. You should have seen all the tickets we had won by the end!

I STILL haven't gotten to ride the Harry Potter ride, much to my dismay. I've been to the Wizarding World three times since it opened, but the line has never been shorter than two hours and I cannot for the life of me make myself wait in line that long for a two minute ride. Hogsmeade is as scenic as ever, though I'd have to say Marvel Island is still my favorite area. If I had to pick one favorite "ride" (not including roller coasters) then the Spiderman ride will always be my favorite. I smile so much as the villains all attack you. It's wonderful. Of course, thematically the wait to Doctor Doom's Fearfall is the best. Doombots everywhere. I didn't get many pictures, but here are a couple I took and a few taken from google images.

Cute lil monster book~
The tm sign in the corner completely broke my immersion.
I burst out laughing and inadvertently ruined the experience of a few tourists.
As far as roller-coasters go I have never been on one more fun than Dueling Dragons.
And that's that! I'm going to have to hold on to the "Big News" I promised until everything is settled and for certain. But for making you wait I'll drop another exciting tidbit. I've fully devoted myself to making a cosplay for the next Con I go to in the future. But not just any cosplay. Scarecrow from Arkham Asylum. It's a doozy, and that gauntlet is going to be the death of me. I also see my money flying out the window. But this is going to be fun! I've already bought a base to build the mask off of, some craft foam, burlap, and a paint respirator so I'll keep you updated.


  1. lol the mismatched outfit is awesomely bad. I think I may take up that challenge. cool you live by IOA. I went on the Harry Potter ride last year. I waited 4 hours in line....actually didn't get to see much of the park because of it... what a bummer. Then i found out the line was so long cause everyone was cutting the line in through the gift shop. cause the ride has a locker room that's next to the gift shop. the locker room has a million people coming in (from the line) and leaving (from the ride) that no one can tell who's cutting and who isn't.

    1. It's a really fun challenge :D See, I'm just one of those people that can't make themselves stand in a line for THAT long when the ride is only a couple of minutes. So I'm not sure I'll ever ride it XD And the rest of the park is just as fun ^^ That sucks about the locker room thing. I didn't know about that...

    What a.beautiful first outfit! ;)

    It was great to see photos- I'm going soon. :)

    I can't wait to see how your cosplay turns out!
    I once made a Knight of Camelot cloak from Merlin. I sometimes use it as a blanket, because I used red felt!
    (It was only for one Christmas, where we had to wear something festive. I reckoned a red cloak was good enough as I don't have much else!)

    1. It's gorgeous right? XD

      Ooooh I hope you have fun! Try to go on a weekday if you can. Also, a fast pass is probably worth it if you're going in the summer even if you can only use them once per ride (And the Harry Potter Ride doesn't count...>.<) And try to get there early because most people don't want to get up on vacation and the lines won't be as bad ^^

      I know! I'm SUPER exited about this cosplay. I already know what Con I'll wear it to. I'm half in love with Jonathon Crane and his Arkham Asylum costume was terrifying so it was an easy costume choice for me XD

  3. That miss-matched outfit reminds of LMFAO. Especially their video for Sorry For Party Rocking. Heh. :)

    1. Haha it does! ^^" Another reason I won't be wearing it XD

  4. Oh wow, that miss-matched outfit sure is bad xD Wizarding World sounds like a lot of fun ^^

    1. That it is XD And they really did a fantastic job with The Wizarding World. It's as authentic as you can get with 50 million tourists packed into the same place ^^
