Ready-to-Wear Superhero: Shadowcat (Back-to-School Series)

Kitty Pryde was introduced to the X-Men in 1980 as a school girl and while she’s now an adult member of the team, she retains a youthful outlook and fills the kid sister role to more than one X.

While the yellow-and-blue X-jumpsuit is not unique to Shadowcat, it is her most iconic look. And it’s not difficult to add a few touches to make it clearly Kitty.

1. For the jumpsuit, pair a bright yellow top with skinny blue jeans and layer it with either a cardigan or a hoodie in blue.

2. A belt is something that can switch “clothes” to “a look” and the red cuts up the blue and yellow so neither is overpowering. Without the belt the shoes would be “too matchy matchy” as Nina Garcia would say.

3. The purple backpack brings Lockheed into the picture. In lieu of a bag, a purple scarf would have a similar effect. The necklace is a nod to Kitty’s Judaism.

  1. This is perfect! I was looking for a ready-to-wear Kitty look for Montreal Comic Con. I love the belt and its purpose, as well as the purple accessory for Lockheed. Thanks!

  2. Plead don’t tell me you’re telling people who aren’t actually Jewish to wear the Star of David. That’s cultural appropriation and it’s super insulting. It’s not a faddish trend, people wear it meaningfully.

      I am not telling people who are not Jewish to wear the Star of David. Shadowdcat was actually suggested/requested by someone who IS Jewish and loves that Kitty is. I made this with her and with Kitty in mind. I am adding your note to the set notes on Polyvore as well so it’s clear.
