Finally done with this! I did a dress design based on Phoenix’s costume (originally designed by Dave Cockrum) - I imagine in real life the phoenix logo on her chest will be embroidered in beads, as do the gold details on her sleeve. This kinda took me forever. I’m terrible with backgrounds - I tend to make them very cluttered, so it took quite a while to clean everything up so she will be the focus of the artwork.————————————————————— ARTWORKS

This Phoenix-inspired evening gown is gorgeous - I love the detailing on Jean’s puffy sleeves.
… Does it come in red?

Marvel Girl & Rule 63 Cyclops, cosplayed by Ali Kay & Betty Felon

So I just realized that I never posted these from San Diego Comic Con (oops), but anyway, here’s that time when we crossed over to the Marvel side. I redesigned Scott Summers’ digs into a colorblock dress, modified a pair of sunglasses for my visor, whipped up the X-symbol belts, and made AK’s Marvel Girl mask; meanwhile, AK created her Marvel Girl dress from scratch. Our gloves, boots, and wigs were acquired from Dorothy’s Boutique and eBay.

As much as we loved running around as Bats earlier during the convention, it was actually quite nice trading in our dark capes for something a little more mutant.

Hipster Cyclops & Hipster Phoenix, by Joel Carroll[Inspired by Nate Bellgarde’s recent X-Hipsters!]
Okay, I kind of really dig these a lot, specifically:
the X-Men zipper pulls
Scott’s black x yellow striped top
Jean’s yellow cat-eyed glasses, in place of her mask
double belts
yellow matching funky, chunky kicks
Also, I really love how Scott’s visor works into this redesign quite impeccably.

Sign O’ the Phoenix t-shirt, by Mighty Fine, $25
Available in Phoenix (green), Dark Phoenix (red), and White Phoenix of the Crown (white), in women’s sizes S-3XL.

This shirt is utter perfection; the silhouette of Jean Grey within the Phoenix symbol is simple and chic, and I love that this shirt is available in every incarnation of Phoenix. Personally, I’m quite partial the the classic green Phoenix look.

But more importantly: Which Phoenix are you?
