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!

Batman Ear Wallet/Clutch, available on Amazon

I prefer to lug around large purses and clunky utility belts over tiny minimalist purses, but I think I’m willing to make an exception for this clutch.

MARGUERITE SAUVAGE’S WONDER WOMAN AND THE SLOWLY CHANGING FACE OF COMIC BOOK FASHION
By Juliet Kahn
Fashion matters. Your experience with superhero comics might have led you to believe otherwise, but I assure you, fashion matters—and should matter particularly to people who read, write, and/or draw comics. Crazy, right? Who would have guessed that such an omnipresent element of our daily lives, used to communicate everything from our politics to our career goals to the circumstances of our laundry cycle should be of consequence to a visual medium!
Fashion—by which I mean all clothes and all styles, not just what you might find folded in the juniors’ department—is capable of communicating basically anything to the audience. A character’s unemployment might be evidenced through their yoga pants and ponytail; their ambition through their pressed pantsuit; their hobbies through a paint-flecked smock. Generally, American comics get those most basic of rules right, but anything beyond that—anything not strictly tied to a vocation or place—is fumbled. Clothes are bland when they aren’t embarrassingly out of date. Women’s fashion is a bizarre mélange of male fantasies, ranging from obvious fetishwear to….heavily fetishized selections from the 2007 Delia’s catalog. Thong straps are hiked high above brutally low-waisted jeans, high heels are worn with absolutely everything, and crop tops are issued upon the first sign of puberty. I mean, I say this as someone who owns two: they aren’t that popular.

The leather thigh-bag on the cover of Batgirl 37 is inspired by the bags made by Jungle Tribe LA!  If you are looking to make a cosplay of this outfit, you’d be best served by visiting their online shop! 

These bags are so cool.
