Superheroine of the Night: Naomi Watts (with assist by Tony Stark)

Naomi Watts has been out of the spotlight the past year or so, but she decided to come back with a BANG. She has at least 5 films coming out this year, she just scored her second Oscar Nomination, and she showed up to the People’s Choice Awards in sparkling gold heroine chic:

And then, to secure her title as Superheroine of the Night, she presented the award to Tony Stark himself.

Chicks Dig Comics

Chicks Dig Comics is a collection of essays by and about women enjoying comic books. And it’s super awesome. There is so much variety and exuberance, it’s really special. The contributors are from all sorts of backgrounds and represent all sorts of websites and activities. Authors, artists, editors, bloggers, cosplayers, conventioneers… Plus interviews with creators whose work reflects they understand chicks dig comics.

I have an essay, Captain America’s Next Top Model, about using fashion to show off your inner superhero. It’s an extension of this blog so if you are reading this you should go get the book! Available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and hopefully your local comic book store.

So, Anika, now that you somehow wound up published in between Kelly Thompson (Comic Book Resources) and Louise Simonson (Power Pack), what are you going to do?

I am going to Disney World! More importantly, I’m going to ride the AVENGERS MONORAIL. We’re actually going with the local high school band, the MHS Blue Dragons. So I will be a dragon, dressed in my special Disney outfits*, riding the Avengers monorail. Best week ever, right?

Buy the book! You won’t regret it.

*While packing I realized I could dress “in the style of Spider-Man” all seven days if I wanted to. I’ve decided to be proud.

In my quest for heroine chic at the Oscars I found all these ADORABLE pictures. Let’s play a game (that is actually, yes, totally an excuse to post these adorable pictures)! Best caption will win a prize (superhero themes DO get more points) —>

Superheroes on the Red Carpet

Is it me or is everyone in a superhero movie? I mean, not really, but as I collected images for last weekend’s Critics Choice and Golden Globes Awards Shows I noticed there were a LOT of superhero actors in the crowd.

Best Supporting Actor Christian Bale won big this weekend, and this awards season so far; his turn in The Fighter is the clear front-runner for the Oscar. As for his style … well, he remains one of the very prettiest actors out there (those flowing locks could be insured I bet). But Bruce Wayne it isn’t. When does The Dark Knight Rises start filming?

Interactive Wednesday: Avengers! (Comic-Con)

As I’m sure you’ve heard, ladies and gentleman, your Avengers:

I could babble about my excitement (of which there is LOTS) or my concerns (of which there are MANY) but instead let’s talk fashion.

I’m in Avengers Academy.

I did not know much about Avengers Academy when I got this tweet. Intrigued, I looked up the preview and found this panel:

Oh. My. God. I love Ms. Marvel. She’s my avatar on Twitter.

And the best thing is — she looks like me, too:
