One of my biggest gripes regarding civilian wear in most modern comics is how out-dated most of the outfits are, especially on the teenage heroes. That said, I really love how sojinnn styled a teenage, Young Justice-era Zee; this ensemble manages to look casual, yet stylishly put-together. Although I’m usually a fan of audacious costume-inspired civilian ensembles, I can’t help but feel compelled by the subdued feel of this character redesign, with just a hint of Zatanna’s usual magician attire via that adorable card suit skirt.
Sartoralist Meets Superhero: Dr. Harleen Quinzel, but you wouldn’t know it.
From now on, I’m going to be posting these every Sunday so I don’t burn myself out entirely. See you then!
I love how this ensemble modernizes the retro influences that we usually see with Harley redesigns, specifically through the patterned socks and the extra wide cuffs on her cigarette pants. The minimalist red and black sticks with Harley’s signature costume, while the patterned bow collar blouse and socks add an unexpected, yet playful vibe to this look.
Sartorialist Meets Superhero: Guy and Tora heat up (cool down?) the room together.
I know I’m a day early but it seemed appropriate to submit these guys together and wish everyone a Happy Discount Chocolate Valentine’s Day.
I simply cannot get over how much I love the contrasting bold black details on Tora’s ice blue coat. Guy Gardner’s ensemble is classy and simple, but I can’t help but want to switch his jacket for a modern black motorcycle-cut jacket.
Betsy Braddock 1982- So last night Rick Remender alerted me to the fact that Psylocke’s purple hair was actually a conscious fashion choice that British model, Betsy made in 1982. So as Ricky Bobby would say, ” I like to picture my Betsy Braddock as a punk rocker hanging out the club wearin’ her Joy Division t-shirt, drinkin’ beer and smokin’ them fancy cigarettes.” Amen.
Psylocke in a Joy Division shirt = absolutely divine.
Take a cue from Betsy and add an Unknown Pleasures top to your civvies wardrobe:

Sartorialist Meets Superhero: Michael Carter and Ted Kord know they’re in demand and are loving it.
Fun fact: Michael was queued to be published last night but apparently didn’t want to without Ted.
Thanks to everyone who put suggestions in my ask/comments! They have been duly-noted.
Now, I declare this PROPER BOOSTLE SWAGGER~
Track jackets, suits, skinny ties, neutral tones, white kicks, and two of my favorite superheroes ever. And while I’d love it if Yaz threw in more dashes of blue in both of their outfits, I love that all these Sartorialist Meets Superhero redesigns are more subtle than most redesigns I’ve seen.
Sartorialist Meets Superhero: In Hong Kong with Cassandra Cain, who combats the humidity by keeping it light and casual.
Now that it’s on the brink of Summer, light, flowy layers feel awfully liberating after being in patrol in full spandex all night. Perhaps that’s why she opted for that new shredded cape for her modified Black Bat threads.
