Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Style Guide

After I did the post about Sookie’s style, I wanted to do another fandom style post but this time with Buffy. I love 90s fashion and I think a lot of the outfits in BtVS are really cute. Nonetheless, I felt I needed to narrow my focus so I chose the college years (starting from season 4 of BtVS) where Buffy and Willow’s style evolved and matured from the first seasons.

Buffy and Willow: the College Years

 

 
Both Buffy and Willow wore a lot of skirts in college, Willow favoring maxis while Buffy opted mostly for ankle length and midi skirts. Buffy still liked to wear leather and Willow hadn’t ditched her signature quirky outfits either – they simply matured and made them more college appropriate. Both seemed to also like floral patterns and bright colors, which I personally love 🙂

I also thought I’d add here a traditional Buffy outfit, which I’m fully intending to do for Halloween some year!

Vintage Buffy: My Favorite BtVS Moments

In honor of my (finally) complete thesis paper on the adorkable Willow from Buffy the Vampire Slayer I wanted to make a post celebrating my favorite things throughout the show. Willow’s character has been one of my greatest inspirations ever since I was – I can’t believe I’m even using this word – a tween, and the show is and always will be one of my favorites. There are so many amazing things about the show but I ended up narrowing it down to 10 of my (current) favorites represented by these awesome gifs.

1. Angel and Buffy’s relationship: it was such an emotional roller-coaster and I loved their chemistry.

2. Buffy’s training: I always thought it was cool when they showed Buffy doing martial arts in slow motion or during her training – it was easier to appreciate it than during an intense and fast-paced fight scene.

3. Buffy’s sass. Enough said.

4. Spike: just look at that smirk 😀 He’s one of my favorite characters and I though it was great when he started being one of the Scoobies.

5. Willow becoming a goddess: finally she got over all the darkness and pain, and became the great good witch that we all knew she was deep down inside!

6. Tara: anything with Tara is my favorite part of the show. Seriously. Anything.

7. Faith being all evil during season 3: she was the character I loved to hate.

8. Anya and Xander: they were perfect together and I was so brokenhearted when they split up 😦

9. More Willow: I loved seeing Willow do big spells – she was so bad-ass!

10. Everyone dancing and having fun at Bronze: sometimes there were happy moments without stress, evil, or vampires. Those moments showed the tight bond that the characters had outside all of the slaying business.

Quick Update

  • I had a horrible flu just a little while ago (just on time for my big thesis presentation) so now that I have done a big part of my school projects, I’m just trying to relax and take it easy so I won’t get sick again. Normally I’d just push myself just as hard as normal but then I always end up getting sick several times in a row. Not this time! Okay…just kidding – I am swamped with projects so I do work super hard, but I am definitely trying to take better care of myself.

  • I recently started emailing and writing letters with the super amazing Ingrid from Smilingrid (go check out her blog, okay?) and I would love to get some more people to write to regularly… I miss letter writing; I feel like it’s a bit of a dying art and it’s so exciting to get mail – other than bills – so I thought I’d start a Pen Pal Project here on my blog. If anyone would be interested in exchanging emails or letters, go check out my new Pen Pal Project page for more information 🙂 I’d love to interact with my readers more!
  • I’m working really hard on my Buffy the Vampire Slayer thesis paper (I love my topic 😀 ) since I don’t have a lot of time to finish it – it’s due already on 30th of this month! Scary! But I’m pushing through and hoping for the best 🙂
