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

COMICS ALLIANCE ROUNDTABLE: GAL GADOT’S WONDER WOMAN COSTUME FOR ‘BATMAN V. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE’
By Betty Felon
One of the most discussed news items from last month’s Comic-Con International was the first look at Wonder Woman as she will appear in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, the new DC Entertainment film by Zack Snyder. Played by Gal Gadot, this will be the first cinematic appearance of William Moulton Marston’s Amazonian princess and feminist icon in her nearly 75-year history, and naturally fans have had a lot to say about the portrait debuted in San Diego. In reaction to the image, members of the ComicsAlliance staff assembled to discuss and critique Gadot’s costume, depictions of super-women on film, and the current state of superheroine fashion in general.
Today’s participants include CA’s superheroic sartorialist Betty Felon; clinical psychologist and Arkham Sessions co-host Dr. Andrea Letamendi; comic book editor Janelle Asselin; journalist Juliet Kahn; comics writer/artist Kate Leth; and blogger/vlogger Angelina L.B. aka ALB, who makes her CA debut in this in-depth analysis. Join us for our roundtable discussion on Wonder Woman’s newest live-action steez, high heels, and the balance between practicality/realism and style in superheroine costume design.

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

I meant to post this forever ago, but Jordan made me a replica of Alazin’s very first original t-shirt (as worn by Minako and Mimet in Sailor Moon S)~

You can get your very own Alazin shirt HERE~!

Not quite comics-related, but since a lot of my followers love Sailor Moon, I figured that some of you might dig some obscure Sailor Moon style references ♡
