Ready-to-Wear Superhero Look Book — who do you hope to see?

Hello all! If you have not heard, I will be presenting a panel including a fashion show and lookbook at Geek Girl Con in October. The panel is coming together nicely and I’m now putting together photoshoots and commissioning art for the book (which will also be a power point presentation and online gallery). SO, my question is:

Which characters do you want to see?

I welcome you to request any and all fandoms: Marvel comics and movies and tv, DC comics and movies and tv, other comics, Star Trek, Star Wars, Disney, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Elementary, Supernatural, Hannibal, Battlestar Galactica, Titanic, The Great Gatsby, Orphan Black, Orange is the New Black, Labyrinth, My Little Pony, Hunger Games…{insert your fandom here}…and by fandom I mean “thing you are a fan of”.

Comment with ideas here or on tumblr or tweet me!

If you wish to submit your own looks to the book details are listed here.


“the best thing a girl can be”

If you could travel to any time period, what would you choose?

Ivy’s fabric was the best part of Project Runway All Star’s twenties style challenge (and the only part worth mentioning).

I’ve always answered the twenties. The artistry, the attitude, the culture, the fashion — that’s where I’d fit in. So of course I’ve been anticipating Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby since it was first floated around as a possibility. Fitzgerald by Luhrmann starring Leo!

I was initially sad when the film was pushed to next summer instead of this winter but a) Gatsby is more of a summer story, and b) it gives me more time to put together my look. I’ve been threatening to make my entire wardrobe twenties-inspired for years and this is the perfect moment.

I intend to catalogue my progress — if you would like to be involved or included, or if you have any ideas, let me know!


Avengers Week: Pepper Potts

Hey world, I saw THE AVENGERS last night. You can read my spoiler-filled fashion geek thoughts about it (but mostly what they wear) over here at Fantastic Fangirls. I went into this week without a hero planned for Friday; I decided I’d pick after I saw the film, though I knew going in I’d be limited by the main people I hadn’t done yet (Black Widow, Hawkeye, Nick Fury) all wearing the same basic look. Then I saw the movie and lightning struck (aside: I’d love to do Loki sometime but he doesn’t have a pull-from-my-closet look).

Pepper’s my favourite. And the opposite of a Loki — I am probably supposed to look like Pepper at the office.

Avengers Week: Captain America

When I first heard about the years long film build up to The Avengers I was the most scared of a Captain America film. If it didn’t take place predominantly in the 40s I wanted no part. Cap is woken up by the Avengers, he’s never in the future without them. That’s a little detail that matters to me. But they made the movie I wanted to see.

This is the outfit I will be wearing to see The Avengers at midnight tonight. It’s a bit more ostentatious than the rest of my week.

Avengers Week: Thor

I’m a little sad that Thor’s Day is not on Thorsday (Thursday) but since it is Wednesday — sharing day in our first grade — Aeris got away with bringing her helm and hammer to school. Thor remains her favourite superhero (for over a year now).

There is an observatory behind me, somewhat obscured by the gloomy New England May day, but I find it appropriate enough to point out. I didn’t really “get” Thor until I saw the film but it ended up my favourite of the post-Iron Man Marvel films. That movie is magical, like stars.

Avengers Week: Iron Man

For day two of Avengers Week I am dressed as IRON MAN. And so is the rest of my family. My husband is wearing a glow-in-the-dark arc reactor t-shirt under his button down, my older daughter is wearing a red-and-gold Rock N Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith t-shirt from Hollywood Studios because I said “If Iron Man was a girl, and she designed a t-shirt for the Rock N Roller Coaster, it would be that.” when she bought it, and my younger daughter is wearing yellow, red, and a crystal. If I can get them to pose, I’ll update with pics. For now, Here’s me:

The red sundress is from Old Navy and it was paired with a (different) gold belt when I saw it on the mannequin so while this is something I already own, it was purchased with RTW Superhero in mind.

Avengers Week: Hulk

Princess Week has ended, though we intend to go back to watch the rest of the Princess (and animated Disney) films when we are done with: AVENGERS WEEK! That’s right, as I am sure you know Marvel’s blockbuster The Avengers — or as my daughter Aeris calls it All the Superheroes — opens wide in the U.S. this Friday. To get ready we, like many fans, are watching the lead-up films, and I, like a few fans, am dressing “in the style of” the Avengers each day this week. For Monday, THE INCREDIBLE HULK:

I’m not much of a Hulk fan. “I’m really big and smash stuff” is pretty much my least favourite powerset (see also: Juggernaut, The Thing, etc.) and while I appreciate the tragedy of Bruce Banner, I don’t connect to him. But, Hulk’s an original Avenger so he gets a look.
