BEST COSPLAY EVER (THIS WEEK) - 09.08.14
Compiled by Betty Felon
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 communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions. In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.

JOYRICH’S EXPENSIVE RICHIE RICH FASHIONS HILARIOUSLY MARKETED TO AWFUL RICH KIDS, IRONY IS DEAD

By Betty Felon

LA-based fashion brand JOYRICH has collaborated with DreamWorks to create a decadently tacky streetwear collection starring none other than Richie Rich. Although this is not Richie Rich’s apparel debut (he previously appeared in the MISHKA NYC x Harvey Comics collaboration), JOYRICH’s approach to the character solely features a repetitive motif of Richie holding a large sack of his parent’s money on shirts, skirts, purses, and more.

Judging from the price list, the imagery may serve as an indicator of how many sacks of money you’ll have to shell out for this gear. From $40 iPhone skins to $198 backpacks, it’s clear that JOYRICH x Richie Rich is genuinely and unironically reaching out to stylish rich kids who have enough money bags to cover themselves in an allover pattern of a rich kid holding money bags.

By the way, ComicsAlliance, can you front me $114? I kind of want that Richie Rich skirt.

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.
