Over the weekend, some friends and I went to see "The Avengers." I'll admit, I wasn't particularly excited to see it since I'm not a big Joss Whedon fan at all, but I went in with an open mind especially because I think Chris Evans makes an extra dreamy Captain America, and Chris Hemsworth is a delicious Thor. Sadly, the movie was a flop in my book. Was it action-packed? Sure. Were the graphics great? Definitely. Was it full of hackneyed one-liners? Nauseatingly so. Good points? Tom Hiddleston makes for a villain you love to hate, and the portrayal of the Hulk is the best one yet. 

In true fangirl fashion, I went dressed as a superhero-inspired outfit. I was initially going to confuse everyone by dressing up as an Avenger not in the movie, but I lost track of time and decided to wear my old Thor dress (click here to see how I wore it the first time). Apparently, not a lot of people get the whole costume-reinterpretation thing, and someone asked if I was going as a domino. 

Have you seen or do you plan to see "The Avengers?"

  1. Such a perfect dress to wear to see the movie...sorry you didn't enjoy it. I'm not sure if I'll see it or not...although I'm leaning towards not.

  2. Oh, the weather has gotten so beautiful over at your place now.

    haha, that's a really nice combination for the Avengers. I've watched the movie, and yes, it has really good animation.

  4. Ah gutted you didn't enjoy the film - i'm not a huge comic geek but I did rather enjoy it! I take most of how the film did by my guy. My guy who is a comic geek was just in the happiest place for the rest of the weekend after seeing that film. Even to the point of shouting out the Stan Lee cameo whilst the theater was silent lol.

  5. Cute outfit! It is super fun! I'm not much into the superhero movies so I don't think I'll see the Avengers. I didn't even know too much about it until some other friends were posting about it this weekend!

  11. Mr. A wanted me to go with him to see "The Avengers" this weekend. I told him that I would go if he bought me a new pair of shoes afterward. We didn't go. I guess it wasn't worth that much to him, which sucks because I really wanted a new pair of shoes.

  12. Oh, you're so cute!! I can't wait to see the movie, but since my babysitter (my sister) recently moved to Ohio, I'm screwed until it comes out on video. lol

  14. This is adorable, I love your feather clips! I'm not a big superhero person but my husband wants to see this so I think we have a trip to the movies in our future. Love the braided details on the dress :)

  15. Ok you look adorable and the outfit totally suited the movie! I am not very well versed in the comic book world but I would be positively sure that you are not dressed as a domino....what a moron?

  16. I'm not buying into all the hype for this movie I don't want to be let down! I don't see the domino correlation not the first thing I would have thought of for sure. I like it especially the hair clips those are super cute!

  19. Love the hair clip! And what a fun dress :)!

  20. I TOTALLY got the Thor-ness of the outfit, especially when I saw the hair clip. We haven't seen the movie yet, but boyfriend LOVES Joss Whedon, so I've promised to go.
    Maybe that guy meant Domino like the comic book character? But she doesn't dress anything like that ;)

  21. i cant belive you dont like joss whedon? thats a first for me, and that you didnt like avengers! how? why? no!?! lol but i guess everyone has their own view on things. and you have to remember super hero comic books are full of one- liners, i feel as though he really brought the comic book to life with this one. you looked super cute in the thor outfit!

  22. I love the outfit. The colors are beautiful. Great hair accessory too. I am saddened that you did not like the movie. I have heard only great things from my friends that have seen it and I can't wait to go! Hopefully I won't be disappointed.

  23. I love that you dressed up for the movie. Sucks for those that didn't get it.
    Didn't go see the movie, although I thought that my husband would drag me to the first viewing. We will probably see it when it comes out on video.

  25. Lol, the superest domino there ever was! I'm secretly happy you weren't in love with the movie. I was feeling very pressured to see it and I really don't want to (I just don't want to see Scarlett Johanssen... however you spell it)

  26. Love the outfit!! Perfect for going to that movie. I've heard the writing was a little iffy too.

  27. A domino? What does he or she know! I think you look adorable! This color suits you perfectly. Thanks for the head's up on the Avengers. I admit that if I were to see it, it would only be so I could drool over Chris Evans! Be still my heart! :)

  28. The dress is so cute! I saw the Avengers! I love Thor! I adore the shot of the flower.

  29. what a cute outfit for a movie day! The shinny circles and wing hair pin is ultra cute! Love the super hero colors too, you are so creative! I haven't seen the movie yet.

  30. Haha a domino- that's too funny! I love the sheen on the dress and your DIY clips are ingenious! My man wants to see that movie but I'm in no rush- superhero movies aren't typically my cup of tea.

  31. I do have a particular fondness for Joss's sense of humor (I'm pretty sure there is no way I would have survived middle school and high school with out Buffy) so I did see the Avengers and enjoy it, and I loved that the entire audience actually applauded when the hulk beat down loki.

    But anyway, I love that you dressed up to go see the movie the winged hair clip is the best!

  33. Not...a Joss Whedon fan. My heart is crying. BUT it is okay, because that is a sweet Thor dress! I am excited to see the movie when I finally get to it.

  34. We loved the movie. It was incredible. So funny to hear it from another perspective. I am such a huge fan of RDJ. He can do no wrong in my book. There were a couple of nauseating dialogue (between Johansson and Renner) but I loved all the corny one liners.

    You look great in this outfit, though.

  39. We've been talking about that movie over here, too. I had a feeling it would be a renter, but I think I would like to see it. Loving your little wing pin. How adorable is that?

  40. I've seen the Avengers! I thought it was pretty good but at the same time, I feel like it could've been better? a little overrated perhaps. love the feather clips, so adorable! :)

  41. Yep, I've seen the movie. It was free so I can't really say anything about it at all. Haha! So bias. It's something I won't spend my money on. It's good someone paid for the tix.

  42. I have seen already the movie and my 2 kids laughing throughout the entire movie. But anyway, love your looks and earrings for today!

  43. Awww! I love both your Thor inspired looks. Such a cute idea, and I like the dress as a dress outside of the superhero look! It's a cute idea of revamping a basic dress. Sorry the movie was a bust. I haven't seen it, but I just recently saw Cpt. America and thought it was so-so, I didn't get through 10 minutes of Thor before getting pulled away and I haven't gone back to watch it. Ech, maybe I'll have an Avengers marathon when everything is out on DVD?

  44. We saw it too, Laura, and I sniggered through some of it to tell you the truth. Matt was really pleased with it thought (???) and I now realize it is 100% to do with Robert Downy Jr. We can see anything with that man in it (probably even his rehab days) and Mr. Mustachio would call it a hit ;)
    I'm an action-hero novice, but why aren't there more lady kick-assers too? I feel like they were just like "Eh, stick ScarJo in a unitard and call it a day."
    Love your Thor dress, Laura! You should totally be the next superhero!
