Since I’m a sucker for dresses and retro silhouettes, it’s no wonder why I love these redesigns of the Gotham City Sirens. However, I feel like a green wiggle dress (à la Joan Holloway) would’ve better suited Pamela Isley.
Holy heartthrob, Batman - check out this amazing Robin-inspired pin-up ensemble in Artist Alley on Saturday afternoon! I love how she refashioned the laces on Robin’s tunic into bows and simplified the cape into a chic detachable collar.
Fashion of New York Comic Con 2012: Power Girl (worn by Paigey)
Stellar artist and overall babe, Paige Pumphrey got the masses of New York Comic Con swooning last week in her gorgeous Marilyn Monroe x Power Girl ensemble! From her rockabilly redesigns of various X-Men to battling conventions in a retro Wonder Woman-inspired getup, Paigey’s ability for merging pin-up fashion and comics is unmatched. For her Power Girl ensemble, she re-purposed her wedding dress (!) and coordinated it with a Marilyn-esque bob and matching accessories in red and blue. My favorite detail of her entire look is how she translated Power Girl’s gold shoulder armor into big gold sweater clips. Brilliant!
Marvel and Benefit Cosmetics’ ‘SpyGal’ Sports Gorgeous Phil Noto Artwork [link]
Benefit Cosmetics is combining forces with Marvel Comics to launch a comic book inspired by Benefit’s beauty products, entitled SpyGal. Marvel assembled the team of acclaimed writer James Asmus (Uncanny X-Men, Captain America) and masterful artist Phil Noto (Batgirl, X-23) to bring SpyGal to life in this beautiful limited edition release, which will be available on Benefit Cosmetics makeup counters everywhere this month.
Stephanie Buscema reworked the Beat Girl Babs redesign that I posted a couple weeks ago, and somehow managed to make Babs even cuter! The lace-up boots in the original painting were switched out for a pair of yellow boots with bow detailing (hello, dream boots!), and the entire outfit is trimmed with an adorable scalloped hem.
On a side note, I really need that green Bat-argyle wallpaper in my bedroom.
This Barbara Gordon piece features a few of my favorite fashion staples: a cute dress, a peter pan collared capelet, my preferred incarnation of the Bat-symbol, a patent yellow belt, lace-up boots, and a matching record player (of course!). Basically, the perfect ensemble for Batusi-ing the night away~
P.S. For those of you who are attending Boston Comic Con in April, be sure to swing by Stephanie Buscema’s table, where she will have prints of this piece (and a selection of other beautiful artwork) for sale!
