Green Lantern gloves, by Karl Lagerfeld [Colette x DC Comics’ 75th Anniversary Collection]
These rhinestone-adorned fingerless gloves are a loose, high-end interpretation of Green Lantern’s power ring. This look could easily be replicated with a little DIY with some rhinestones and a pair of pleather wrist-length gloves.
HauteLook currently has a sale on superheroic sleepwear for boys, girls, and toddlers. The selection includes pajamas ranging from $13-20, and features Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Batgirl, and Green Lantern. Since a fair amount of my followers have kids of their own, I figured that some of you wanted to suit up your tiny titans in style~
As you know from our weekly Best Cosplay Ever feature, we are big fans of cosplay at ComicsAlliance. The comics, sci-fi, gaming and fantasy communities’ talents for homemade disguises, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics are definitely on display this weekend at New York Comic Con, and you’d better believe our own Betty Felon is on hand to document as much as she can. Click after the cut for some exceptional examples of superheroic cosplaying talent that we spotted in New York!

Mark Newport Knits Superheroes for ‘IN ACTION’ Installation [link]
Currently showing at the University of Texas Downtown Gallery, artist Mark Newport’s IN ACTION installation is a quirky fusion of pop culture and knitwear, featuring yarn-assembled suits inspired by Batman, Spider-Man, Captain America and more. Newport’s work creates a dialogue of the viewer’s perceptions of superhero costumes, safety, and gendered activities such as knitting and comics.
Newport’s trompe-l’œil designs are a juxtaposition of archetypal masculine heroes and the cozy security of a hand-knit sweater, with knitted acrylic threads in place of Kevlar-lined spandex to create a life-sized costume.

Since I will be making my way to NY/BK in a bit (for the long weekend), I will try to queue up some content during my absence. However, in case that doesn’t happen for some reason, please enjoy the collaborative efforts of just a few of my alter-egos (now available in gif-form!).
