Batgirl #35 - Babs’ OOTD No. 1 and OOTD No. 2
Here are some fashion illustrations inspired by what Babs was rocking in our first issue of Batgirl! <3  I cant name where these IRL items are specifically (legal stuff!) BUT you can at least check out how her fashions translate from the comic page to IRL and try to track it down yourself! :)  

Babs’ Street Style : Tomboy! 
Lots of people asked about what our approach for Babs’ street style is for this book. For right now, its very tomboy/comfy/cute. Babs’ is dealing with a lot in grad school and fighting crime in her off hours so we figured she would be not the biggest fashionista. She would most 
definitely go for comfy cute before shiny and pink. She never rocks a lot of make or curls her hair before shes goes out the door. BUT Babs’ has got the 5 min makeup routine down and has a hand full of cute go-to hair styles that require minimal effort and can be achieved while running out the door to class! 

Hopefully this is a fun look at the thought process that goes into dressing Babs :)

Batgirl #35 easter egg: Hey, who’s that with the bow?
Thanks for the cameo, Babs (and thank you for inviting me to Barbara’s housewarming party~!) ♡♡♡ Also, thank you, Maris for coordinating my outfit :3
Also, can we all talk about how ginchy this comic is? I seriously cannot wait for the next issue!

still freaking out about this~

Bon-Bon tee / Bon-Bon tank, by Katie Skelly x Seibei

As a fan of Katie Skelly’s work, I was pretty stoked when she joined forces with Seibei and designed some shirts featuring one of my favorite panels of Bon-Bon from Operation Margarine. Katie and I collaborated on a style guide on how to coordinate your very own Bon-Bon shirt with cloves, smudged eyeliner, and attitude. Katie also pulled some style inspo from her own wardrobe, Bon-Bon, and my wardrobe of primary colors, while I channeled Bon-Bon in an outfit I wore to MICE this weekend :3

Fan-arting my own character in my own way. Personal work, 2014

Can this be a real t-shirt that I can wear?

I still have a massive HeroesCon recap blog post in the works, but considering the comics news today, I wanted to share this amazing commission that Babs Tarr drew for me at HeroesCon

Since Babs was so busy at the con all weekend, I just handed her my sketchbook on Saturday and asked for a commission of Jem, but only if she wasn’t too bombarded with work. When I stopped by her table on Sunday, she surprised me with an illustration of me as Batgirl/Batmangirl and I almost started tearing up on the spot. Thank you so much, Babs - I really can’t wait to see you work your magic on the new Batgirl series this fall.

P.S. Also, thank you, Jordan, for coloring me in

Barbara Gordon
HeroesCon 2014 sketch
Done for the amazing and talented and handsome Rico Renzi.  I had free reign to do whatever I wanted, so I decided to do a fashionization so I can stand out amongst all his other Batgirls.  

YES.

I figured since I did the first two, I should round these out by doing the third most prominent (but my least favorite) of the Dazzler outfits- pink hair+leather midriff strips (what are those).
For the final incarnation she had to go full Katy Perry/Nicki Minaj realness. 100% modern pop queen. I also tossed out the traditional mic for the pop singer hidden mic.

Someone please put Erica Henderson on a Dazzler book ASAP ☆

LITTLE GIRLS ARE BETTER AT DESIGNING SUPERHEROES THAN YOU, SAYS ALEXANDRIA LAW
By Betty Felon
In efforts to showcase the design sensibilities of young aspiring superheroes, artist Alexandria Law created Little Girls Are Better At Designing Superheroes Than You, an art project wherein superheroes are illustrated and redesigned based on superheroic costumes worn by young girls. Law’s project features submitted photos of little girls donning costumes based off of both licensed superheroes and original characters alongside illustrated interpretations of the look “in action,” providing a fresh look on heroic aesthetics. From an incredibly wearable Wonder Woman dress with killer boots to chic, simplified adjustments to Power Girl and Huntress, these little heroines manage to embody the spirit of their idols while adding inventive style and flair; a skill that many comic professionals still struggle to master.
