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!
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.
eBay (the proud sponsor of FTFCS (lies))
Hi, can you tell me where i could find a batman bra? ive been wanting one for so long
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.
Will you take me a comic con with you??
If you can shrink yourself to fit in my purse, then sure!
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 :-/
Who takes the pictures of you at the comic book store?
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).
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? :)
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!
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.
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 :)
Despite the fact that all of the winners have already been contacted over a week ago and should be receiving their Wonder Woman earrings shortly, I’ve gotten a bunch of inquiries asking if the winners were picked… so here’s my proper (and belated) contest winner announcement for the Wonder Woman earrings contest!
AND THE WINNERS ARE…
Congratulations, ladies! Please let me know when you guys receive your earrings (and feel free to send me photos of the Wondy earrings in action!) ★
And a big, gargantuan THANK YOU to all of the contest participants for making the first contest on Fashion Tips From Comic Strips super fun! I can’t wait to hold more contests in the near future ★
