Doodled out my Black Cat & Kit redesigns from last night for a little warm-up. 

As much as I love leotards, I’m all for Harvey Comics’ Black Cat in a sleek and modern catsuit. As for Kit, thank you for keeping his dope belt in his redesign.

 Avengers Gowns: Iron Man & The Hulk, by kelseymichele
Although the Hulk look is quite glam and pretty, the Iron Man ensemble steals the show in this redesign (unsurprisingly). The structured cocktail dress and the arc reactor pendant are audacious, yet beautiful interpretations of Iron Man’s showboating armor. While I’m not the biggest fan of strappy gladiator footwear, I do approve of the chunky wedged heel with this ensemble.

1940’s fashion inspired by Iron Man & Captain America, by LadyLawga
Both of these looks are really cute, but I love how Iron Man’s arc reactor is translated into a chic scarf clip.

Mod Rogue.

Extra-long gloves + hip-slinging X-belt + mod bob with Rogue highlights = A+

When the new X-men lineup was announced I, of course, thought it was amazing and refreshing and about damn time.  It wasn’t until a friend of mine brought the new team up again that the idea for another X-fashion developed.  It really was a “duh” moment for me - they’re ripe for a fashion piece, and not just because they’re women but because they are some of THE biggest female names of the X-men.  So I went for it.  Wanted something a little more dynamic than X-fashions of the past.  My main thought going in was more pants, less dresses and frippery.  Of course there’s still bling and heels - you can’t take away all the fun - but I wanted fashion that was a bit more street, more real, a little more badass. 
Rachel is grunge.  Love her jacket, not so happy with her shirt.  
Psylocke is NYC fashionista tomboy.  Dip dyed hair (so trendy) and a butterfly print blouse.
I’m really happy with Kitty’s dragon t-shirt and bad ass heels.  Had to get a shoe in there somewhere, people.
Storm is my 80s executive realness.  Her earring is fashioned after the one Willi Ninja bought (he has the receipt) in Paris is Burning.
My southern belle is in a loud print and hose - she’s the only one in a dress.  I wanted her in printed leggings but she was already such a patterned mess I decided against it.
And Jubes is just all over the place.  Bikini and hot pants and a bedazzled jacket.
The original will be going up in the store as soon as tomorrow.  Prints as well - in TWO sizes :)  Hope you guys like it, let me know what you think!  

This is what perfection looks like.
A+, Kevin Wada.

Jubilee - Lolita, by ladylawga
Top off this coordinate with a pair of cute pink-framed glasses, and you have a perfect mutant lolita look for the spring.

Barbara Gordon wears Marc Jacobs Spring 2012, with a bonus Dick Grayson wearing Ovadia & Sons Fall 2012 for tigerlilyattackMarc Jacobs seemed so wonderfully inspired by 20’s and 60’s attire that I couldn’t resist. Happy Belated Valentine’s Day! Hope you like :’)


(Details I missed and didn’t fix because of lazy: her pockets and his right double pocket. Kind of want to do another one later to showcase her blue dress and shoes more.)  



I’m still in love with this redesign by bowlerhats.

Captain Marvel inspi sketch WIP.I saw a girl wearing a jean jacket the other day and I thought: man she looks so cool. So I wanted to draw a simple boyish look with a jean jacket.Oh and I changed my URL name… and my icon. And here’s a drawing I did of my cat Mordecai and my family’s cat Lucca.


I am all about that cropped hooded track jacket/sweater.
Also, those cats.

Yeah. This is a bunch of Ramonas for some kind of Scott Pilgrim contest I guess.

I wanted to colour them traditionally - but there was no time to, like, mess it up. So here are my lame ps-skills  

~*~*GRAND PRIZE WINNER*~*~

Here’s the GRAND PRIZE WINNER!

At first I felt like it was almost unfair for these to win! Look at how great these all are… I have never heard of Hanna K from Sweden before but now I want to see everything she ever does.

She did six Ramonas (plus a few more after!) and not only are they all cute and unique, they all look like something Ramona would have worn in the book (but didn’t). The colors are bright and poppy and fun and every outfit is delightful.

Congrats Hanna K!!! Please send me an email so I can send your prize! (bryan@radiomaru.com)

That wraps up the contest!!! I’M SO GRATEFUL TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERED AND I’M REALLY SORRY IF I COULDN’T GIVE YOU A PRIZE OR HIGHLIGHT YOUR ENTRY HERE — I LOVE EVERYONE :0 :0 :0 :0 :0 :0 :0

These are all too cute - I think my favorite redesigns are the top blue x black outfit and the mint x coral ensemble.
