Shop the look:

I am a huge fan of Marvel Comics. So, imagine my excitement when I opened up a present that contained a handmade scarf, with a Marvel Comics print!

My sister-in-law surprised me with it for Christmas (she knows me well). She had it made through a lady on Etsy. It is simply amazing and very well-made. This scarf is going to withstand the test of time. I love the pattern so much that I found a skirt on Etsy to match, but I’ll wait until summer to get that one. Haha. For now, I will simply buy comic books.

Oh, and I should mention, I do read my comic books in the comfort of the indoors. However, our hotel room does not offer the best lighting or background. So, for the purpose of these pictures I ventured into the outdoors with my comics. It was awfully warm the day I took these pictures, though. It was at least 40 degrees and wearing a sleeveless dress felt pretty comfortable!

comic books

I’ve always loved the Marvel movies and TV shows, but I just recently started reading the comics. They seriously make me so happy.

8 bit bow

I also want to point out my bow is an 8-bit barrette. I played enough video games growing up (Zelda, Donkey Kong, Frogger, etc.) that seeing this bow made me feel rather nostalgic. I was a bit worried this barrette would be too heavy for my hair. I have fine hair that tends to snap off if I wear a barrette, and this is a rather large bow. If it’s positioned correctly at the end of my rather poor attempt of a braid, it’s OK. The sacrifice is worth it, anyways, because it’s a pretty good conversation piece. Who doesn’t love reminiscing about video games?

I do have to warn you dear readers, this won’t be my last geeky outfit post. I have quite a few geeky dresses and accessories in my arsenal of clothes. Hopefully you won’t mind seeing a few more!

  1. It looks like the hair bow is no longer available, it probably sold out, because of this post! I love your outfits, you offer something different, which I appreciate!!

  2. Hi Lindsey! I wanted to come by and say thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment! It was a little scary putting my first post out there, so I appreciate the visit.

    It’s cool to find another style blog by a teacher…even better is when I see that you are a fan of Marvel (love your scarf)! I am too- my husband and I are huge geeks. We often cosplay at comic and video game conventions, and I even have a Marvel skirt that I sewed over the summer. It’s hard to tell…maybe it’s the same fabric?

    1. Hi Jennifer! Thanks for stopping by my blog as well. I’m excited to have found another Marvel fan! I would love to cosplay or even just go to comic and video game conventions. One of these days my husband and I will start. 🙂 I have seen several skirts on Etsy with the same fabric as this scarf. Your skirt could very well be the same fabric!
