Over the last month I ended up revamping every canonical Batgirl for fun leading up to PR’s Batgirl redesign contest. Figured I’d throw them all together to show you guys. Hope you like ‘em!

I would definitely wear that Betty Kane/Bat-Girl outfit IRL.

Doing some super heroine redesigns! Teenage/street clothing super heroines? I dunno, but I’m liking the idea that maybe its not all just spandex everywhere!

Batgirl and Wonder Woman are up first :)

These are really lovely - I look forward to seeing more of your redesigns :) I’m really into that WW cropped top and the bat headband + domino mask combo.

10/10 WOULD WEAR RN

Barbara Gordon wears Marc Jacobs Spring 2012, with a bonus Dick Grayson wearing Ovadia & Sons Fall 2012 for tigerlilyattackMarc Jacobs seemed so wonderfully inspired by 20’s and 60’s attire that I couldn’t resist. Happy Belated Valentine’s Day! Hope you like :’)


(Details I missed and didn’t fix because of lazy: her pockets and his right double pocket. Kind of want to do another one later to showcase her blue dress and shoes more.)  



I’m still in love with this redesign by bowlerhats.

I thought it might be fun for one of my first new illustrations to be a redo of the idea I did for the ancient #batgirl meme on livejournal! The batgirl I drew back then was “Portland Batgirl,” dressed up in hipster standards, so I thought I would redo her in current fashion trends :) just a #sketch obviously! #art #wip #barbaragordon #batgirl #batman #illustration #moleskine #drawing




I’m absolutely in love with this - I need that bat-eared bowler.
I would love to see a full Batgirl-inspired fashion illustration from you, girl ♡

Best Cosplay Ever (This Week) - 09.17.12
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 community of costuming that exists today and cosplay communities such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. In honor of the many fans who’ve displayed excellence in the mastery of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), a weekly collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into our own super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
Check out this week’s round-up of the Best Cosplay Ever on ComicsAlliance, featuring Cyborg, Miss Argentina, Emma Frost, Batgirl (above), and more!

A Batgirl painting I reworked last night.

Stephanie Buscema reworked the Beat Girl Babs redesign that I posted a couple weeks ago, and somehow managed to make Babs even cuter! The lace-up boots in the original painting were switched out for a pair of yellow boots with bow detailing (hello, dream boots!), and the entire outfit is trimmed with an adorable scalloped hem.
On a side note, I really need that green Bat-argyle wallpaper in my bedroom.

Beat Girl Babs, by Stephanie Buscema.
This Barbara Gordon piece features a few of my favorite fashion staples: a cute dress, a peter pan collared capelet, my preferred incarnation of the Bat-symbol, a patent yellow belt, lace-up boots, and a matching record player (of course!). Basically, the perfect ensemble for Batusi-ing the night away~
P.S. For those of you who are attending Boston Comic Con in April, be sure to swing by Stephanie Buscema’s table, where she will have prints of this piece (and a selection of other beautiful artwork) for sale!

Sartorialist Meets Superhero: Barbara Gordon, dressed for what may be her last summer with us as Oracle, unfortunately.
On a sidenote, I was terrified of putting Barbara in the wrong kind of wheelchair (I’m still quite sure all I’ve done is draw something vaguely alluding to one). Thanks to Google though, I got to read all about this lovely woman.

Seeing Barbara in casual stripes is a refreshing break from her signature wardrobe comprised of green shirts, black tank tops, and button-up oxfords.
