From Fandom to Fashion

Self

I peeked around the corner of the street and there they were. Hundreds of odd looking anime characters. Some presumably schoolgirls, and others, disturbingly ugly creatures that you’d think would haunt you in your nightmares during the depths of the night.

Convention OOTD

Fashion

Happy holidays everyone! This past Friday and Saturday, I spent my days purifying my soul and enhancing my spirituality through lectures and workshops at a religious convention called Texas Dawah Convention. I was bewildered by the number of community members that showed up to unite and learn together, with even some who travelled across America just to attend. The lectures consisted of topics about dealing with Islamophobia, how Trump’s presidency impacts us, respecting our elders, giving charity, the influence of social media and creative art on our generation, gender identity in Islam, and a tour of paradise. There was even a workshop where we could ask questions to two FBI agents, and we ended the convention with a comedy show by Jeremy McLellan. It was interesting how varied these topics were because I came home with different perspectives to ponder upon.

Here is my OOTD for the second convention day.
