SHOES OF PREY: COMICS ALLIANCE DESIGNS SUPERHERO FOOTWEAR BASED ON WONDER WOMAN, CAPTAIN MARVEL, BATWOMAN AND MORE
By Betty Felon
Fashion brand Shoes of Prey used its customizable design website to style some superhero-inspired heels and flats as examples of footwear that customers can tweak and purchase for themselves with the Shoes of Prey 3D Designer, which gives the wearer selection of colors, materials, and alter various detailing parameters such as heel height, toe and heel detailing.. Each pair of shoes is handmade to fit the customer’s chosen aesthetics and run at least $100 per pair.
As a fan of both Shoes of Prey and comics, customer Mandy Kerr designed some heels and flats inspired by Batman, Iron Man, and more (seen in the grahguc below). Inspired by Kerr’s excellent Robin-inspired oxfords, I utilized the Shoes of Prey 3D Designer to create a few of my own shoe designs, including flats and platformed wedges inspired by Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel, Batwoman, and more.

Best Cosplay Ever (This Week) - 02.10.13
By Betty Felon
Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions. In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.

Captain Marvel Tank Tunic, by WeLoveFine, $29
In which, Carol Danvers REALNESS. As you probably already know, I’m a huge fan of trompe-l’oeil costume apparel, but this is probably one of my favorite pieces to date.

Captain Marvel inspi sketch WIP.I saw a girl wearing a jean jacket the other day and I thought: man she looks so cool. So I wanted to draw a simple boyish look with a jean jacket.Oh and I changed my URL name… and my icon. And here’s a drawing I did of my cat Mordecai and my family’s cat Lucca.


I am all about that cropped hooded track jacket/sweater.
Also, those cats.

Wow, I didn’t expect that amount of kind words and sympathy regarding last night’s incident. I am truly touched. Thank you so much. And thank you for conveying so much hugs to my mom and dad XD  My mom came in to my room this morning and said something funny - she said she had an insult she wanted to say to that guy but she held it in so hard her stomach hurts the whole night.

Anyways I spent last night (and this morning) finishing this up (nothing better than to spend pent-up anger on artwork!) - my rendition of the new Captain Marvel costume re-imagined as a dress. The new Captain Marvel’s hairstyle is really a bit hard for me to pin down exactly. Is it short? pinned back? Terry Dodson styled it differently from Dexter Soy’s interpretation and I can’t decide between the two so I just sorta make it up as I go along. Thanks for looking!

I love how Captain Marvel’s emblem is translated into an off-shoulder gown. I also love the elegant gradient touch to Carol’s signature sash belt.
