Since Salt Lake Comic Con is in less than a month, we’re going to keep going with quick cosplay this week for Thursday Threads.
So, when your convention pops up and you realize you need a costume, come here for some fast ideas. Again, quick cosplay is all about ease and comfort–at least, for me it is!
Mabel “Into the Bunker” Quick Cosplay
I love Mabel’s style. Like, so much. I wish I had Mabel as an example of don’t-give-a-fuh-what-anyone-thinks while I was growing up. She dresses the way she wants to dress not to impress anyone, not to make a statement, but just because that’s what she likes to wear.
Now that I’m older (WAY older), I’m along those lines. But, as a kid? No way. I had so much unnecessary anxiety about whether I looked okay. I avoided trying a lot of styles and ideas simply because I was too afraid to. It wasn’t until I was two years into college that I finally decided, “Yes, I can wear that,” thanks to two very stylish best guy friends.
So, let us all take a lesson from Mabel’s handbook–you know, amid the glitter and bedazzling–and just wear whatever the heck we want to wear. Like our glow-in-the-dark Fun Hazard sweatshirt. Then you can be like Mabel every day! (Yes, that just happened.)
- Isn’t that quote amazing? I love Gravity Falls, squeezing them adult jokes in.
- Satin covered headband, Amazon, $8.06
- Glow-in-the-dark “Fun Hazard” sweatshirt, Nerd Love Shop, $27.95+
- Purple skater skirt, Amazon, $17.99

Side note over here, but I love those flats. So freaking cheap, so soft. I have them in every color they come in, pretty much. As you can tell, I’m a mega-classy shopper because Walmart may or may not be my favorite place to shop for shoes.
But anywho–what’s your favorite Mabel outfit?
