So this happened.
Of course, it happened the night right before Ottawa Comic Con because why not, that’s why. But even if I wasn’t already long sold on America Chavez’s kickpunching alt urban attitude and a personal lifelong motto to also PUNCH EVERYONE, my well-documented elemental weakness to a hoodie+jacket combo clotheslined me right into it. Besides, this is basically my winknudge at Bria to once again be the elegant and classy Kate Bishop that she is — cosplay sisterhood high fives, all around.
As always, tip of the hat to Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie for their stellar work on Young Avengers.
Saw Star Trek: Into Darkness this weekend? Feeling the need to get your Trek on? Ashley Eckstein and Her Universe totally have you covered! Whether you’re a fan of the original series, Next Generation, or the current films, Her Universe has something that’s sure to appeal! They’ve even just released two new items on Friday in honour of the film’s release.
Also known as: what Bria is wearing for race day. I’m headed off to the Preakness Stakes tomorrow. It’s the second jewel in the Triple Crown and is always a fun day at the horse race track. While the Kentucky Derby might get all the attention, the Preakness is also filled with plenty of fabulous hats and I wanted to bring my A-game this year. For style inspiration, I turned to one of my favourite rich and classy ladies: Monet St. Croix. She’s one of the few Marvel superheroes that I could feasibly see attending an event like this. Her X-Factor uniform served as a basis as did Monet herself. The black and red of the bespoke hat was my starting point because, well, FABULOUS HAT. From there, it was just a matter of debating between dresses and accessorizing.
Really, it’s all about the hat.
White Striped Dress: BCBG Maxazaria
Bespoke Hat: Fabhatrix in Edinburgh, Scotland
Black and Silver Accented Heels: Gucci
Jewelry: DIY, Target, etc

We cannot even begin to count all the ways in which we are so excited for this show.
