Q & A: January 27th, 2013

chrissy—chan asked:
May I ask what you made your Cassandra Cain mask out of? ^_^

Craft foam and elastic!

weareallaverage asked:
Have you ever cosplayed zatanna? Would you?

I’ve only put together a closet cosplay of her (on accident) and I coordinated an outfit inspired by her (on purpose) a couple years ago. I would love to cosplay Zee one of these days though!

missmayadler asked:
Where did you get your Catwoman watch? :)

eBay.

this-isthestoryofagirl asked:
Hey! Have to say, I love your blog! Besides that, I was wondering if you knew anywhere to buy/had seen any comic book related iPhone cases (that don’t cost my soul?) Thanks a lot!

I’m not sure what your budget is for an iPhone case, but I usually get my cases for pretty cheap on eBay. Your local comic shop may also carry some cool DC/Marvel cases as well.

diylobotomy asked:
Your Batman sweater is DIVINE! Where did you get it?

eBay (the proud sponsor of FTFCS (lies))

lesbiansalltheway asked:
Hi, can you tell me where i could find a batman bra? ive been wanting one for so long

I’m not sure if any of the retailers that I previously featured are still selling Batman bras, but check out the lingerie tag in the Style Index :)

int3rr0bang asked:
About the superhero iphone cases, do you have any idea which stores will carry them? :)

Call your local comic shop and ask if they will be selling the DC/Marvel iPhone Chara Covers :)

comicspopetc asked you:
Heyo fashion tip, comic strip. Do you know anywhere where they sell geeky snapback caps? Thanks,

I’ve spotted some comic snapbacks at Lids occasionally, and Mishka NYC currently has some sick Harvey Comics snapbacks.

press-start-to-join asked:
Will you take me a comic con with you??

If you can shrink yourself to fit in my purse, then sure!

evolve-yourself asked:
Would you sell any of your costumes? :)

One day, perhaps~ I don’t think my costumes are constructed well enough to be sold for much, to be honest :-/

Anonymous asked:
Who takes the pictures of you at the comic book store?

Robbins Studios!

Anonymous asked:
Betty, do you have any other major fan interests outside of comics?

Many, but currently, I’m all about Gravity Falls, Lord of the Rings, Phoenix Wright, Disney stuff, and One Direction (ha ha ha).

chrisgrav3s asked:
you should be a super villain and you have a ‘fashion gun’ that fixes fashion victims

Yes, I fully approve of this plan.

However, wouldn’t that make me a superhero? :)

Q & A: September 4th, 2012

komradekrisis asked:
Favourites! Fashion designer, superhero, comics company, and colour c:

Favorite fashion designer: Luella Bartley, Jeremy Scott, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac.
Favorite superhero: Batman
Favorite comics publisher: I’m a DC girl at heart, though I’ve been reading a fair amount of Marvel and Image lately.
Favorite color: It really depends on my mood and on the context!

superheroeswearingjackets asked:
Have you ever designed a cosplay costume from scratch? Like, created your own character and dressed as that? I know that’s sort of not the point of cosplaying, but I think it’d be neat if it was a more common thing.

I’ve never cosplayed a character that I’ve created and designed myself, however I do have a few design ideas for an original Betty Felon superhero costume that I would love to fully conceptualize and create at some point. At previous conventions, I’ve encountered a handful of cosplayers who dress up as their own original characters. It’s a great way to expand your costume choices outside of preexisting characters, as well as guaranteeing that no one else will be cosplaying the same character.

the42towels asked:
Where did you find those amazing Booster Gold and Blue Beetle pins and in general, where do you find cool comic related accessories? I can never find anything like that unless someone direct links me to the store

I commissioned the Skeets and BB scarab brooches from an artist who works with laser-cut acrylic artwork; you can probably commission something similar via Etsy Alchemy Requests. As for comic-related accessories, check out the artist alley at conventions, craft fairs, comic shops, Etsy, eBay, and pop culture retail stores like Newbury Comics and Hot Topic.

monicamorrell asked you:
Anything Starling/Birds of Prey, inspired?

Nothing at the moment, though I’ll keep an eye out for any Starling-inspired fashion. For now, you can find posts related to some of the other members of Birds of Prey located in the Style Index :)

AW YEAH MILESTONES!
At some point over this past week, I had passed the 1,000 followers mark and didn’t even realize it until just now! I want to thank all of you for making me feel so welcome on Tumblr; over these past 5 months, I’ve truly had a blast sharing my love for comics and fashion, befriending some of the ginchiest people on Tumblr, and even reconnecting with some old friends. Thank you so much for the recommendations and more importantly, for just tuning in to Fashion Tips From Comic Strips ♥
I also wanted to take the time to note some site changes that I’ve made over the past few weeks. I’ve added an About page for new visitors, along with an Events page, which lists all of the future conventions and comic-related events that I will be attending in 2011.  I’ve also created a proper Index, where you can easily access posts sorted by topic, character, series, clothing, and publisher. Finally, I’ve installed Disqus on my Tumblr interface, which will allow for commenting on individual posts. Feel free to give me any feedback on the site changes :D

AW YEAH TUMBLR MAKEOVER!
Until I actually have more time to sift through every Tumblr theme [and/or code one to my liking], I’ve made a couple of changes on Fashion Tips From Comic Strips. I still need to tweak the HTML a little bit more, so that FTFCS will be  easier to navigate [i.e. add an index/tags page, more streamlined viewing, etc], but until then, I hope you guys dig the new look :D
