Done for the amazing and talented and handsome Rico Renzi.  I had free reign to do whatever I wanted, so I decided to do a fashionization so I can stand out amongst all his other Batgirls.  

YES.

I figured since I did the first two, I should round these out by doing the third most prominent (but my least favorite) of the Dazzler outfits- pink hair+leather midriff strips (what are those).
For the final incarnation she had to go full Katy Perry/Nicki Minaj realness. 100% modern pop queen. I also tossed out the traditional mic for the pop singer hidden mic.

Someone please put Erica Henderson on a Dazzler book ASAP ☆

LITTLE GIRLS ARE BETTER AT DESIGNING SUPERHEROES THAN YOU, SAYS ALEXANDRIA LAW
By Betty Felon
In efforts to showcase the design sensibilities of young aspiring superheroes, artist Alexandria Law created Little Girls Are Better At Designing Superheroes Than You, an art project wherein superheroes are illustrated and redesigned based on superheroic costumes worn by young girls. Law’s project features submitted photos of little girls donning costumes based off of both licensed superheroes and original characters alongside illustrated interpretations of the look “in action,” providing a fresh look on heroic aesthetics. From an incredibly wearable Wonder Woman dress with killer boots to chic, simplified adjustments to Power Girl and Huntress, these little heroines manage to embody the spirit of their idols while adding inventive style and flair; a skill that many comic professionals still struggle to master.

Doing some super heroine redesigns! Teenage/street clothing super heroines? I dunno, but I’m liking the idea that maybe its not all just spandex everywhere!

Batgirl and Wonder Woman are up first :)

These are really lovely - I look forward to seeing more of your redesigns :) I’m really into that WW cropped top and the bat headband + domino mask combo.

10/10 WOULD WEAR RN

Kirstin Wells - Superwoman redesign

Doodled this out last night. I wanted to make her look a little more futuristic and make it a little more formal (in the story it was a present for Supergirl to wear at a party, I think). Also, I’ve never been a fan of people in the Superfamily wearing masks; a hood feels friendlier to me. Almost changed the yellow to silver but I decided against it. Hope you guys like it!

The cloak coordinated with the red legwear and red gloves creates a better blue:red ratio, and gives the look a more balanced feel. Also, I’m a big fan of capes redesigned as mod hooded mini-cloaks, so yeah.

Wonder Woman, photographed by Robbins Studios
I love this beautiful Wonder Woman gown that Robbins Studios spotted at C2E2. The full star-spangled skirt is a great interpretation of Diana’s classic Wondy-undies.
