Just in time for Fall/Winter vigilantism, Forever 21 has launched the Bats and Cats Collection of apparel, accessories and cosmetics, featuring the iconic motifs of Batman and Catwoman. After the success of previous licensed collections showcasing the designs of Hello Kitty/Sanrio and Minnie Mouse, the Bats and Cats line is the first comic-centric collection that Forever 21 has released. Although Forever 21 has occasionally carried DC and Marvel apparel (primarily graphic tees), this collection features a wider variety of merchandise, including Bat-emblem leggings, Catwoman sweaters, and purses covered in gold bat-shaped studs, and more.
Last Thursday, I came down with a bad cold and thought that the Bats & Cats Collection was just a fever dream. I woke up the following morning with a shipping confirmation in my inbox and a slight dent in my checking account.
I’ll post a review/unboxing of the items that I ordered once my shipment arrives~!
Since I’ve received a lot of inquiries about the Batman mask ring that I got on eBay a few years ago, I figured that some of you would dig this official Batman cowl ring from DC Comics. The ring runs from a size 8-14, but hopefully they’ll release some smaller sizes in the near future (I’m crossing my tiny fingers).
In honor of the 20th anniversary of Sailor Moon, Bandai’s cosmetics line Creer Beaute announced the release of cosmetics inspired by Usagi Tsukino (aka Serena, if you grew up with the dubbed series). Creer Beaute’s Miracle Romance Shining Moon Powder appears to be both a blush and an illuminating powder, and is encased in a compact that closely resembles Sailor Moon’s Crystal Star Transformation Brooch. The compact also doubles as a necklace for those of you who want to channel your inner magical girl without having to sacrifice $100+ on vintage Sailor Moon toys on eBay. The compact is currently available for pre-order for¥3980 (approximately $41) on Bandai, and will ship in Fall 2013.
