they let me wear this to work?

Jul 23

Dumb selfies I took of myself in between photoshoots (I do product photoshoots so it’s nothing exciting).

My outfits consists of the kickass Think Geek 8-bit tie and bow, Nyan Cat hoodie and, a high school girl skirt I got from Japan! My nerd glasses are from my workplace. They are my manager’s but I’m currently taking hostage of them at my desk!

For those who are wondering…I actually do cosplay on the side! This is my Battle Bunny Riven for Supanova 2014 this year!

This was my first (completed) weapon I’ve made for a cosplay ever! I used yoga mat foam for the inside, cardboard for all the decorative bits and a PVC pipe as the handle! Also lots and lots of hot glue and spray paint.

The costume itself I used this Sexy Black Bunny costume and added on top the white bunny ears.  The collar, tie and cuffs and carrots are all self-made :)

shameonpretzel said: Great Pikachu hoodie! Might I ask what size you are wearing (I want to buy one for myself, and I need to know sizes for reference)?

Hey there! The size I bought is a Medium.  I can probably fit into a small but I intentionally went one size up so that the Pikachu face will cover more than half my face :)  I also like having long-ish sleeves!

Hope this is a good reference!

This blog should just become ‘They let me do this sh*t at work’.

Anyway, this is me goofing off with a really awesome hot pink Indian headpiece at work (in a middle of a photoshoot.  HAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!)

This is not a Goodbye but a Hello…

After much consideration I have decided to shut down ‘They Let Me Wear This to Work’s’ Facebook page.  Don’t worry, this blog is still going to be alive and pumping but the Facebook page itself doesn’t really need to exist.

This decision has come from the fact that I have broaden my skills, creative interests and projects in the past year and I want to share it with you all!

Other than knowing how to dress myself, I love to bake, make felt toys (mostly of food), and draw (mostly of Pikachus). I used to be in a band playing bass guitar, I have ten years of violin up my sleeve and (for those who haven’t figured it out yet) I work as a graphic designer!

This isn’t the end of ‘They Let Me Wear This to Work’, updates will still be coming your way (although in smaller amounts now). However I will be sharing more of what I love, what I create and my ideas instead.  I will be doing a lot these new posts on my website ElectricChu. If you are interested please subscribe!

Other than that, thank you very much for your wonderful support!  This is not a Goodbye but a Hello…

I don’t know about you, but out of all the costumes on this BuzzFeed  list I do find this particular costume accurate and appropriate.

Yaarrrr! Or should I say…Nyaaaaaaan!

Last Thursday was Talk Like A Pirate Day, which my workplace took advantage of and held a mini Pirate work party!

I decided to up the theme and dressed up as a Pirate Nyan Cat (or Pirate Rainbow Cat as I called it around the Office, since Nyan would require explaining and a youtube video).

The Pirate Kit (hat, eye patch and scarf), Pirate Bustle and Rainbow Bustle all came from CostumeBox.com.au  The white corset, white cat ears and paws I got from home :)

Nyyaaan!
