Lolita Mystique, by fogerness.
Raven would make such a pretty lolita, though I would love to design a shiro lolita look inspired by her classic white costume.

Sartorialist Meets Superhero: Jason Todd, doing the bad-boy thing since 1983. Also, the daddy issue thing, but that’s a whole other story.
It was truly a challenge to figure out what colour this guy’s hair was, by the way. Black? Black with the white streak? Brown? With the streak? Red? They really need to make their minds up over at DC.

I know that I just said that I wasn’t a Jason Todd fan, but if DC hired Yasmin to redesign all of his civilian wear to look like this, I think that I could probably fall in love with JToddz too…
On a side note, this outfit also kind of reminds me of Ben Wyatt’s ensembles in Parks and Recreation (swoon!).

Jason Todd / Red Hood inspi fashion sketch. Suggestions on how to achieve this look!
Any style black bomber jacket.
Aviator sunglasses. Red or black lenses.
White tee for inside.
Dark gray booty shorts (because when I think of Jason, I think “Hot Damn” XD). If you don’t like shorts op for fitted pants or capris but be sure to tuck into boots.
Black knee length boots.
Black fingerless gloves.
Helmet is definitely op but suppose to be the red hood part XD. 
Leg accessories is also op.
Accessorize! 
Inspi list has been updated! Please look for upcoming designs and designs thus far» Inspi Lineup.

Truth be told, I’m not a Jason Todd fan, but I’m all over this outfit.
Plus, I can only presume that she wears the red glasses under the red helmet.

Girl Wonder Redesign by Dean Trippe [tumblr]
I love this Stephanie Brown version of Tim Drake’s red and black Robin costume. It’s sleek and streamlined, and actually looks fairly wearable. The opera-length black gloves and the steel-toed boots are subtle, yet effective touches, giving a serious air to Steph’s overall look.
Check out Project Rooftop's review of this and other Stephanie Brown redesigns HERE.

Sartorialist Meets Superhero: Tim Drake, a guy who understands how to mix business and party.
This one’s for rebelsomething who insisted I post this ASAP.

I love this because I like to think that all of the Robins have worn some variation of the sweaters that Dick Grayson originally wore off-duty.

Black Canary inspi sketch. She’s totally one of my fave heroes. Augh looks a lot like a Batman inspi sketch too because of the color scheme but I wanted to do Black Canary’s old costume where she had yellow in her outfit. Oh well, still Black Canary to me : )! (plus I’ll do a Batman one later.)
Black crop jacket.
Pleated pencil mini dress, two tone or full black. Lol I know specific right. It doesn’t have to be pleated but a pencil skirt dress would look nice, also if the top is heart shaped that be even better : )! I can also see an A-line skirt working too. + + + + +
Yellow sash, try to use a satin like fabric. 
Classy stockings, wear beautifully patterned ones or just stick to fishnet stockings for more of a Black Canary look.
Those crop laced heels. + +
Accessorize!
Links are not like definitely items to get. They’re just suggestions, if you find clothes similar to those but at an even better prince them = awesome.
Inspi sketch lineup has been updated!
Omg someone just reblogged this and totally reminded me!I recently saw Betty Felon’s blog. She’s so awesomely fashionable and I love her bows, hence I wanted to draw one. Lawls I totally wish I could put pictures of myself wearing these fashion superhero outfits but alas I dislike pictures of myself on the internet XD /paranoid.

Aww, I feel so honored - I’m inspired to make a yellow bow with the Birds of Prey symbol on it now ♥ Plus, like her archer boyfriend, Dinah now has a bow of her very own* ;D
The cropped jacket, patterned tights/fishnets, and the slight yellow accents (pulled straight from Canary’s signature costume) are coordinated with a tulip-skirted strapless dress and laced-up heeled boots, creating a cute look with a strong silhouette. This is the perfect ensemble for a fun date with a charming bowman or for a night on the town with your Birds.
*Bam, NAILED IT! [The Girl Punder strikes again!]

Sartorialist Meets Superhero: I’ve got Kate Kane on my mind, apparently, because I was browsing the Sartorialist the other day and came across this outfit. My first thought was something along the lines of, “great shoes, but who could pull those off —”
I’m thinking I’ll do a series of these, so stay tuned!
This one’s for my bro, chiroptophobia, for reminding me of being sixteen and falling in love with superheroes.

So Yasmin created a series of superhero redesigns appropriately titled Sartorialist Meets Superhero, and I’m absolutely in love. Since I already paid homage to the Batwoman of Earth-2 earlier today, I figured that I’d share one of my favorite redesigns of the modern Batwoman, Kate Kane.
I love how the ratio of red to black in Batwoman’s current costume is also applied to this outfit, allowing just enough red accents to pop against the black. Kate’s fire-red bob looks impeccable with the cloche hat and suit, creating an overall chic look and a sleek silhouette. The spectator oxfords are simply the shoes of my dreams: not only are they red, but they feature a clever reinterpretation of the scalloped Bat-detailing (usually seen on the top of Batwoman’s red boots) on the tips of the shoes.
The only thing that would make those shoes absolutely perfect, would be the inclusion of Bat-soles:

The Joker & Harley Quinn have their own unique means of expressing their criticisms of the Batman Live costumes ;)

LOL. Looks like Joker and Harley aren’t too happy about their Batman Live costumes…

Wonder Woman inspi fashion sketch! Sweet and flirty. Suggestions on how to achieve this look : )!
Golden colored elastic head band. Attach red star (applique, felt, or any sturdy fabric). Flowers op.
Long golden necklaces (lawls suppose to be lasso of truth)
Navy blue cardigan is optional.
There are two tone dresses available in stores and online that are like this dress. Red top color, blue skirt color. 
If there are no such dresses available, just any red top will do and an A-line skirt/blue mini skirt.
(Cant find blue skirt with star print?) Buy lots of iron on stars and iron iron iron onto the blue skirt. 
Golden colored waist belt. Any style will do!
Silver bangles. 
Gladiator shoes. I personally can’t pull off gladiator shoes so I’d probably op to wear red flats or red boots : )! 
Accessorize as pleased!
Robin inspi fashion sketch. KF and Miss Martian up next. Message me with any superhero (and adjectives would help) and I’ll do my best to do an inspi fashion sketch.

A great styling interpretation of Wondy’s classic costume!
I especially love the star-spangled skirt and the long, layered gold necklaces.

And although I’m not a fan of sandals, I do love how Wondy’s signature red boots are redesigned into tall red gladiator sandals with white accents.
