Ant Lucia Gives the Women of DC Comics a Retro Makeover for ‘Bombshells’ Prints

By Betty Felon

Tapping into the popular DC Bombshells statues line from DC Collectibles, QMx has released a set of prints of Ant Lucia’s conceptual artwork featuring DC’s favorite heroines and villainesses in the style of mid-century pin-ups. Lucia channels Alberto Vargas’ trademark pin-up style while capturing the strength and beauty of the likes of Wonder Woman, Catwoman, et al; and the result is a fun, sexy, and chic makeover of DC’s finest. This artwork will be also used for DC Bombshell-themed variant covers for DC’s current series in June 2014.

Ever since the release of the DC Bombshells Supergirl statue last year, Lucia’s redesigns have been a hit with collectors and cosplayers alike, with the line of statues quickly expanding and with fans emulating these stylishly retro makeovers of Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, and more.

SHOES OF PREY: COMICS ALLIANCE DESIGNS SUPERHERO FOOTWEAR BASED ON WONDER WOMAN, CAPTAIN MARVEL, BATWOMAN AND MORE
By Betty Felon
Fashion brand Shoes of Prey used its customizable design website to style some superhero-inspired heels and flats as examples of footwear that customers can tweak and purchase for themselves with the Shoes of Prey 3D Designer, which gives the wearer selection of colors, materials, and alter various detailing parameters such as heel height, toe and heel detailing.. Each pair of shoes is handmade to fit the customer’s chosen aesthetics and run at least $100 per pair.
As a fan of both Shoes of Prey and comics, customer Mandy Kerr designed some heels and flats inspired by Batman, Iron Man, and more (seen in the grahguc below). Inspired by Kerr’s excellent Robin-inspired oxfords, I utilized the Shoes of Prey 3D Designer to create a few of my own shoe designs, including flats and platformed wedges inspired by Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel, Batwoman, and more.

Some DC girls redesigns! An extension to the street wear Super heroines thing I did awhile ago. Unfortunately missed the Project Rooftop redesign contest, but these have been floating around in my head for awhile. I also get a lot of questions concerning the brushes I use for these character portraits. I use 2 brushed in my set to do them, and here they are!

I love the worlds of comics and video games, and I’ll probably be doing more like these :)
The Harley redesign is largely influenced by Kris Anka’s work!

Real Talk: Mingjue Helen Chen’s redesigns for Batgirl & Harley are making me reconsider my pantsless wardrobe.

I was compiling all my magical girl sketches and drawings and realized I had missed someone who I really, really shouldn’t have.

I love the asymmetrical draping in this mahou shoujo-inspired Wonder Woman look ☆

Best Cosplay Ever (This Week)
By Betty Felon

Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such asCosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions. In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.

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.
