Comicon What to Wear // Paul Fredrick

So as many of you readers know, New York Comicon is coming up this week! It’s so exciting to see how successful different Comicons are becoming all over the United States. I wish I could make it over there this year, but even though I’ll only be there in spirit, that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t craft a good “What to Wear” post.

However, today’s post is a little different! This time around I am working with Paul Fredrick in honor of New York Comicon, and it’s *drumroll* MEN’S WEAR! I actually had so much fun putting these looks together. I drew a lot of inspiration from this image. I wanted to make some classy and modern takes on some famous characters, and well… Let’s just say if Suit & Tie Bane came over and bought me a drink… well…. then… yes. The answer is yes. ALL of the yes. Anyways……..

Let’s start off with Mr. Bilbo Baggins. With this outfit, I wanted to keep the colors and tailoring all familiar to the character, while making the accessories much more obvious. The shoes I chose because the suede (out of all of the materials) had a fuzzier look to them… Kind of like a hobbits foot, but classy. I’m using that word a lot, “classy.” Oh well, I’m going to keep using it! Boom! I do what I want!

So a while back, I talked about how I was in a weird transitionary period in my life. Since I wrote that post, my life has taken quite a few twists and turns.

I am still freelancing, but I haven’t been blogging as much (or at all, really). The reason is, I like to try and create and photograph all custom content on my blog. It’s what I enjoy looking at the most during my leisure time on the internet, and so it’s what I want to provide here on The Pixel Party. However, now that I have been broke as hell tight on funds (and there is cost to putting these posts together, which is fine, because it’s my favorite hobby in the world), I haven’t been able to really do anything over the last couple months…. Or so I told myself.

I’ve been having a heck of a pity party for myself. Since my last (dear diary) post, life has been tougher than usual. Money is hard, and I took a part-time job in a warehouse, unloading semi-trailers, to help with groceries and gas (the silver lining to that, is I am basically getting paid to go to the gym, and I’m down 2 dress sizes. See, already being more positive!). My best friend also moved from Phoenix to Detroit, and as far as any job leads go in CA, it’s been pretty quiet. Things might turn around soon; we have some new bites over there, but I’m trying not to get my hopes up too high. We’ve had some disappointing news before.

Fracking Magical!

There has been quite a dry spell on the Pixel Party. I plan on talking more about that in this post, but before I do that, I wanted to break the silence with an adorable outfit of the day. HOW HAVE YOU ALL BEEN!? I missed this. So so much.

So, we are bringing back my friend Janelle (looking amazing here and here) in this very simple and cute outfit. I love the black on black that almost makes it look like it’s own dress, but upon further inspection, boom. It’s a skirt and tee combo!

GIVEAWAY | Win a Signed Art Print

I am so excited to be introducing my very first giveaway on The Pixel Party! This giveaway comes from my now no longer existing Etsy Shop, “PeeDeeEff,” where I would sell pop-culture related prints. I took the store down because it was difficult to keep up with demand without my own printer. Maybe I will revisit that endeavor in the future. In the mean time, if you just so happen to be interested in buying any of my artwork, you can see what I have for sale on my Society6 shop.

But enough about that, let’s get to the giveaway! For this giveaway, there will be not one, but TWO winners! Woooo! I will be randomly giving away either 1 signed copy of my Emperor’s New Groove Print, or the Minimalist Venture Bros Awesome Ladies set, also signed! Enter Below!

I will be announcing the 2 winners on Wednesday, July 9! Be sure to come back every day to re-enter!

Phoenix Comicon Cosplay: Day 2

Day 2! There were so many people at the convention, but with that came so many amazing cosplays as well! Here is the bundle of people that I spotted. Sorry about the quality of the photos on some of these. It’s hard to stalk/photograph/not block people during these conventions!

As usual, let me know what your favorites from Day 2 are! I am obsessed with Red Skull and the ENTIRE payload scene from TF2. Also, the corgi. Duh.

Fox 10 Phoenix: What to Wear to Comicon

You guys, I have made it to the big time. My blog and I landed a 3 minute segment on Fox 10 news here in Phoenix, AZ to talk about what to wear to Comicon if you are not going to cosplay. It was amazing and thrilling and nerve-wracking and one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. Check out the clip here:

Like I said, THRILLING. It definitely helped give me a bit more confidence throughout the weekend to talk to people about the blog and to grab their photos.

My three models were amazing as well. Janelle, Esmeralda and Sofija all really pulled through for me at the last minute (and at the crack of dawn), and they KILLED it. Actually, Esmeralda and Janelle have modeled for The Pixel Party before, so it was so fun getting to share this experience with them.

Oh! Here’s one of me getting all wired up. SO OFFICIAl:
