Stock up your Batcave with some Batgear around the web! (Everything sounds cooler than you add Bat to the front of it, am I right?)
Leggings are fun way to spice up an outfit especially with all the retailers out there diving excitedly into this trend to offer shoppers tons of options. Romwe offers both the traditional Bat Symbol leggings along with a pair that feature the covers of various Batman comics over the years. Hot Topic also has a pair of leggings coming out on June 10th featuring the Dark Knight himself.
You can never go wrong with a t-shirt especially when it’s got the bat symbol on it. Again, Hot Topic has you covered with this grey striped tank and a gold foil t-shirt while Forever 21 has a distressed muscle tank.
If you’re more inclined towards something long-sleeve, ASOS has a long-sleeved crop shirt by River Island with a fun print. Top Shop has white sweatshirt with a Bat symbol pattern. To round things out, Forever 21 has a Heather Grey Raglan top, again with the Bat symbol.
Not feeling like wearing your Batlove on your body? You can always opt for a Batman (or a Wonder Woman) wallet from ThinkGeek!
Of course, if Batman’s not your thing, you can always pick up one of our Great At Boats shirts.
Hulk Smash? No, Bria Smash! (Hulk’s the OTHER half of my secret Avengers persona.) I went a bit more on the literal side with this outfit but given how iconic the giant green rage monster and his purple shorts are, the colours were pretty much a given. The glasses are obviously a nod to the Bruce Banner side of the Hulk although it’s pure coincidence that they’re green on the inside.
Green Top: Express
Lavender Skirt: Zara

Get some mischief done with a bit of style — a younger and sleeker incarnation of your daily self. Taking our cues from Kid Loki, we pick up this season’s emerald with bold black contrasts, accessorise in gold and geometric designs à la horn sigil, and put some trendy urban do-gooder in there to land you fighting on your feet in New York City.
Tomorrow is May 25th; the 36th anniversary of Star Wars: A New Hope and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi being released in theatres! In honour of that and because I’m desperately wishing that I could be at Star Wars Weekends in Walt Disney World, it’s a Star Wars post.
Summer is coming and if you have long hair like me, that means you might be looking for a more creative way than a ponytail or messy bun to get it all up and off your shoulders. Who better to turn to for ideas than Leia Organa and Padme Amidala? While their hairdos are intended for people with far more hair than most of us, they serve as great starting points and inspiration. Today, we’re going to use Princess Leia’s hairstyle from Return of the Jedi as a decently quick yet pretty way to put your hair up.
Step 1: Brush your hair out. I prefer to do this while my hair is wet but it’s your choice. I’m putting a picture here of my hair down to give you an idea of how much hair I’m working with here for this style.
Step 2: Put your hair in a low ponytail and then divide it into three sections. The middle section should be decently thicker than the outer two. How thick you choose to make the outer sections is up to you and depends on how far up on your head you want the braids.
Step 3: Do a basic braid to all three sections and braid as far down as you can.
When you finish, your hair should look something like this.
Step 4: Take the skinny braids and wrap them around your head, adjusting where you place them so that the ends will overlap. Bobby pin and hairspray until you think they are secure.
Step 5: Wrap the fat braid in an oval around the ponytail holder. Tuck the end beneath the rest and bobby pin securely.
And that’s it! You now have a do worthy of Princess Leia! Now get out there and save the Rebellion!
