Wednesday Workout Cosplay: Princess Bubblegum

I'm thinking April is going to be full. Full of what? ADVENTURE! And to celebrate, I'm going to use a theme again!
via
And so on to another Princess (trying to smoothly transition in from last month **winks**): Princess Bubblegum!

I like PB because she's a frigging scientist! I always wanted a chemistry set, and since P-Bubs is a princess, and a scientist how could I now like her (seriously, that is one FIERCE combo)! This look is a running, and lifting (definitely a heavy sweating session) since PB is always running from the Ice King, and lifting mad science gizmos and gadgets.

1). Princess Bubblegum Headband by WithYarnandGlue- I cannot run without a headband, and that's part of why I tend to feature them a lot. The other part? They're basically the workout tiara! Just saying!
2). ASICS Quinn Running Jacket - We are in that temperamental time with weather where if you're in the sunshine, it gets warm quickly, but the second you move to the shade, its all "shiver me timbers" This jacket is just right for that in between! It's moisture wicking, but will keep you warm until winter finally goes away.
3). Bionic Fitness Gloves - These gloves are really neat! Not only were they designed by a orthopedic hand surgeon, but, these gloves also promote less fatigue. So you can lift weights (or test tubes) all day!
4). ASICS Gel-evate Running Shoe- whether hitting the asphault, or hitting the Peanut Brittle streets, these gel-soled shoes should help absorb any of the nasty shock while running or jumping around on your exercise adventure!
5). Nike Women's Running Skirt - I'll be the first to admit: I don't know if I could run in a skirt. Ok, I could cause I've played some Field Hockey, but just running? It does leave me miffed. But PB seems like the girlie type and TBH...its pretty cute. I kind of want to try it! And since we're going with pink, this felt like the right character to do this with :)
6). ASICS Courtenay Running Top - we're getting to that time of year where longsleeves won't be an option anymore, and this one was too cool not to use! Since the sun is shining a bit more this shirt is extra awesome as it provides UV Protection on sunny days! Also the design is fun, and it looks like it might be reflective (extra safety is mathmatical!).
7). UnderArmor Wristband - wristbands are great! They're like little power bracelets in the gym, or, like mini towels on a run (wipe that glisten from yo' brow!). And these puppies are as pink as a gumball! I really like them as a place to hold a key ring-bracelet in place while working out!

Since we're talking about weights, I thought I'd share this FitnessBlender weight training video:


Also, some info about why you need to incorporate weights in your workout (to become strong really! It helps your core and arms. And if you wanted to lose weight, it will help there too).

Here is a sweet-and-pink playlist to run and lift to:

My Adventure Time story is a weird but brief one. I didn't know what all the fuss was about, and so I had seen many things and cool shirts for the show, and, I had done the last two Comic Con scavenger hunts for a medallion at SDCC 2012-13 (but TBH, I just really like scavenger hunts, they make me feel like Sherlock Holme, or, Hercule Poirot). Any way, last September a good friend was in town and we went to dinner. I asked him what the show was about, and he said that though at first it seems pointless, there's actually a darker story involving WWIII (The Great Mushroom War) and that it's technically post-apocalyptic. He told the Tenor and more about the show and I was sold. As I watched I saw very quickly that the shows randomness was something I could completely be on board with! And thus, the Tenor and I became fans! 

We're almost done with Season 2 (YAY! Netflix finally got season 2 and our next episode is: Mortal Folly) and, you may have seen the workout cosplay I already did for Lumpy Space Princess (LSP) if not, check it HERE yo!

Cheers!

  1. I recently got back from a con, and although I was happy with the way my cosplays turned out... I want to get a little more fit before my next one! Maybe cosplay workout outfits are the way to go... force me to keep my goal in mind and all.

  4. Interesting! I never knew what the fuss was about with Adventure Time! May have to check it out. Love the outfit and I need to really do a bit better with getting my weight training in each week!

    1. I'm still (despite reading and my own saying so) afraid to use weights and "bulk up"
      I know I'm built for more cardio but I don't want to neglect weight and strength training either.
      I know you do a lot of cardio, have you ever had a week where you focused just on weights (where cardio would be just a warm up)? It would probably be good to "throw your body off" its expectance of cardio?
      I did that. I had a really good aftermath from it. I need to do it again in fact.

  5. I was sad I missed out on the medals! I watch AT but randomly. I have it on my netflix list so I can actually see it in order. LSP is so my favorite.

    I need to look into weight lifting. I need to get some strength in my arms! Over the weekend, I got so tired from pushing my suitcase. That shouldn't of happen. Legit, pushing a few seconds and I was tired. Not good! Thanks for this!

    1. Dude! Lemme know what weight exercises you do! I'm always trying to learn new ones (I get a bit flighty with exercise so I always try to shake it up a bit).

    1. Thank you Sarah!
      You know, it took me a bit to get into watching it. It's a very random show (which is what kept me hooked LOL).
      I had fun looking at all the pink workout clothes that were available too (I usually just look for purple and green for myself).
      Thank you for coming by!

    1. I agree. There were lots of pink shoes, but I felt like theses looked the coolest (plus the gel would be awesome for absorbing the shock!).
