Look #12: PAX Day One!

August 31, 2013 ♥ Posted in: Fashion/Beauty, Geek Events, Outfit of the Day by Kristina Horner



Yesterday was the first day of PAX PRIME and I couldn’t be more excited. On my first day I wandered the Expo Hall, signed up for raffles, purchased a few things from the We Love Fine booth that I’m sure you’ll see popping up in future Outfit of the Day posts, demo-ed games, stopped by a variety show at the Triple Door and ended the night with a hilarious nerdy improv show! It was an amazing first day – and although my feet already hurt, I can’t wait to get back down there and do it all again today.

For the first day, I decided to go casual. I wore a super fun Adventure Time shirt I got from TeeFury a while back, and my brand new blue striped shorts from ModCloth. For the record, I got two compliments on those shorts from strangers, and one crazy bus lady who told me to “wear clothes over my underwear next time”. I’m going to say all press is good press on that one…?

Lastly I threw on my old but reliable Steve Madden boots, grabbed my standard convention bag with the emoticon face on the side and strapped my PAX badges onto a My Little Pony lanyard. I felt awesome – and was never once uncomfortable. I plan to dress up for some of the other days, but shorts and a t-shirt was a solid choice for Day 1.

How do you accessorize a plain t-shirt? I’m curious about your tips – because I usually struggle to find ways to make the embarrassing amount of nerdy tees I own work beyond night shirts. Let me know in the comments!

That top is amazing, I don’t know why you would want to wear plain tops when you own ones like that but I normally just use patterned shorts or long necklaces although I think belts and badges can look pretty cool sometimes.

I have the same problem with nerd shirts. I love them, but I always feel like I’m stuck just wearing them on my “jeans and a t-shirt” lazy days… which I really want to get away from.

But I gotta say I really do admire your style. 🙂

Thank you! I really want to find more ways to dress them up! 🙂

I have a black and white checkered skirt that goes really well with most black t-shirts. For ones of different colors I usually wear a black skirt.
