GGB Kaiserslautern- Magical Girl Brunch

Geek Girl Brunch Kaiserslautern is the first international chapter! We’re hoping there will be more in the future and the European chapters can plan a get together. For our launch, we choose the Magical Girl theme. Why? Because there is nothing like having a big opener with the message that we are not damsels, we can save ourselves! We’re all magical girls right? Plus, most of us started our geeky awakening with Sailor Moon. It only seemed fitting.

Our brunch location took place at Sam Kullman’s Diner in Kaiserslautern and it did not disappoint. It was the cutest 50’s style diner and the breakfast was really, really good. It made some of us homesick in a good way. Good ol’ American style breakfast – oh and did we mention they had awesome milkshakes and alcoholic coffee? Yeah…score!

Magical Girl Brunch

geekgirlbrunch_magicalgirlbrunch_fashion

It was a little under a year ago that we held a geek girl brunch at Macondo. It was only our second brunch. It was 4 people. Fast forward to this past Sunday when our little group had almost quadrupled in size to 14. (Not bad, eh?) Returning to Macondo with our ever growing troupe of Magical Girls, we filled the venue (half of their green room) with laughter, a lot of pink, and a wealth of new wonderful memories.

Moon Prism Mani- A Sailor Moon Manicure Tutorial

Brunch, as we all know, isn’t merely a meal. It is an event. And what fun is an event if you don’t have a super cute manicure to match? In honor of Magical Girl month, I’ve tackled a relatively simple nail art design inspired by Sailor Moon, chiefly the Inner Senshi and their outfits.

Step 1:

SailorMoonMani-1Gather your materials. Since I’m doing the Inner Senshi, I made sure I had a variety of colors that matched their sailor costumes. I also included a few lighter and darker shades of the core colors for highlighting/shadowing. You’ll also need a dotting tool of some kind (feel free to get creative if you don’t have one on hand — for a long time, I used a dull pencil), a thin detail brush, and a wider brush to help with clean up afterwards. Absolutely necessary: Acetone. Continue reading

Jamila, Geek Girl Brunch Co-Founder

Magical Girls taught me that women can be multi-dimensional. We don’t have to stick to one personality type forced on us by society. We can be leaders, fighters and so much more. Most importantly, magical girls taught me to be comfortable with being myself.
