See You in Space Cowboy...

What to wear when you want to be both very comfortable but still want to look vintage, and also show a bit of nerd pride? A graphic tee and a pencil skirt, can't go wrong.

Add a sheer nylon scarf for even more Grease bad girl vibes if needed. Vary the heel height based on the day or evening's activities. The basic formula is also a perfect option for most concerts with a band tee as well.

I only started watching any anime at all a few years ago, and I am still incredibly picky about what I watch. I like very few shows, but the ones I do...I LOVE. Like, I really, really, adore. Cowboy Bebop is at the very top of that rather short list. I tried to explain the basic premise to a good friend of mine once and failed miserably, because summarizing the show is a bit difficult. A mash up of genres, some old tropes made new, and the melding of various motifs in new juxtaposing ways. A show about bounty hunters with a genetically engineered corgi that's really about being haunted by your past until you finally confront it, about being stuck in a rut until you finally face what needs facing. Then there is the music, which...yes, just YES. I love Cowboy Bebop.

And don't even get me started about how great Samurai Champloo is too... did you see that they asked the director of both series Shinichiro Watanabe to make a Blade Runner short in promotion of Blade Runner 2049 last year? Talk about putting everything I love in one little stew.

I hope you all had a good weekend. I spent most of Saturday writing, and there's nothing else I'd rather be doing the rest of the week too, but we can't always get what we want right? Well, I've got a little bit of time tonight at least, so I guess I'll get to it. Okay three, two, one, let's jam.

  1. Splendid outfit! It made me smile.

  2. You might like "the Big O" because it has serious art deco and batman TOS vibes (which was very film noir)

    1. Thank you for the recommendation! I will have to check it out!

  3. Seriously, a tee and a pencil is one of my favorite combos. I do it all of the time, especially at Disneyland. It is the perfect combo like you said.


  4. Great look. I really like it.
