Ready-to-Wear: Captain Marvel (Casual)Posted: February 28, 2013
Polyvore is fun, but can be limiting. I couldn’t get an Air Force t-shirt for the Off-Duty-Carol-Danvers set I suddenly and desperately wanted to make. So here it is OFF-polyvore.
This ISN’T RTW superhero in the sense of building an outfit around a superhero’s supersuit but it IS RTW superhero in the sense of basing an outfit on a superhero, in this case Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers.
Most comic book superheroes share values such courage or compassion or sass or arrogance. Heroic qualities, if you will. But then then have the little quirks that set them apart from each other. For example, a love of flight and a dedication to the military are important aspects of Carol’s personality.
I’ve been looking for an appropriate to Carol Air Force t-shirt for a long time. This, still, isn’t quite it; I don’t think Carol would find the lyric-pic as cute as I do. But it IS the logo and it IS a female cut and NOT pink, strangely low-cut, or splashed with “I love My Airman” or “Proud Mom”. So.
Boston born and bred. But, let’s be real, Carol would wear this around just to annoy Tony Stark.
Any skinny jeans in traditional blue work, these are Guess because I like Guess! But Carol wouldn’t wear pumps with them, she doesn’t even wear heels in
most pictures of her redesigned uniform. Therefore, hot but flat red boots. These two items DO evoke her supersuit, yay for versatility!
Flying is freedom, it’s complete freedom. When kids misbehave, they’re grounded. When adults have to accept their limitations, they’re grounded. I wear a fashion-bomber jacket as my main Winter coat because it reminds me of the W.A.S.P.s and Amelia Earhart
and Wendy Darling and Daenerys Targaryen
and Carol Danvers and flying and freedom.
You can’t take the sky from me.
The dog tags, of course, can be worn with absolutely anything or everything.
