Casual Cosplay Connections: Scully (The X-Files)

Casual Cosplay Connections

Earlier in the summer I participated in Danielle and Charlie's Casual Cosplay Connections super-blogger-fun-time (read about how it works here), where I dressed as Max Caulfield from Life is Strange for their video game theme! You can see that here! Then the following month came and I literally COULD NOT think of anything to wear for the 90's cartoon theme, so I skipped it hahah. All the other girls looks great, though ;) Anyway, this months theme is strong female characters! So there was no way I was going to pass on a perfectly good excuse to dress up as my biggest girl crush, Dana Scully!

(What's casual cosplay?! In this case it's when you're wearing an outfit meant to be reminiscent of a character, using items from your wardrobe that you already own. So for example you might just use a few elements from the characters outfit, or maybe just be wearing the same color scheme. Like, an Aquaman casual cosplay might be a pair of green pants, an orange shirt, and maybe some seahorse earrings if you're feeling fancy.)

The white collared shirt was the easiest part. I just took it from Andrew's side of the closet :P I don't have a blazer or trench coat, so I made due with a black cardigan. I added my gold cross necklace, because you never see Scully without hers, but in the pic the gold is kinda blending in with my skin hahah (#asianprobs). Finally, I added my DIY Scully FBI badge, which I realize makes this more costume-y than casual cosplay-y, but I love my badge and when else am I gonna wear it without getting weird looks??!

I was also wearing these alien earrings, handmade with love by The Fangirl Crafter! But I couldn't take pictures that properly showed my outfit and the earrings at the same time hahah. I have a matching necklace that I wear ALL THE TIME. You can read more about them in this post!

I wasn't going to share this pic, but it makes me laugh so whatever! I was texting my friend about what I was doing, and sent her the picture of Mulder with my alien earrings, and she said "Where's Queequeg?" (Scully's dog, for like, two seasons.) I'm not a dog person so the only dog item I could find was this super girly, Beanie Baby, plush dog cell phone holder that I got as a gift. The eyes have pink glitter and it's wearing a pink bow. so I snapped a pic with it and sent it her way. Now the gang's all here!

Next month’s theme is Fall TV Favorites, but I don't watch many currently airing shows anymore. I'm excited for Gotham to come back (like REALLY excited!) but that's about it. So I dunno if I'll be able to come up with an outfit for next month, but I'll try!
