If you haven’t seen Megarinri’s inspired fashion sketches on tumblr, then you have definitely been missing out! Today’s outfit is based upon her Robin design. I’ve been wanting to put this outfit together ever since I first saw the sketch and today was the day! I may not be the biggest DC fan but I’ve always been fond of the various Robins and so doing an outfit inspired by them just felt right especially since it definitely gives off a Young Justice!Robin vibe.
Corset: Forever 21 (With modifications by me)
Jacket: The Gap
Tights: Calvin Klein
Boots: Kenneth Cole
Warning! There are absolutely spoilers in this post for the Project Runway Season 10 finale!
Project Runway finished up its tenth season on Thursday, and boy did this finale actually leave me grinning from ear to ear because my favourites tend to have really bad luck when it comes to crowning the winner. Dmitry Sholokhov was crowned the newest Project Runway champion and wow did a fair number of his designs read superhero chic to me! (Although I would totally love to see the show do a challenge where the designers have to make designs that are actually inspired by superhero costumes.)
Tell me that this dress doesn’t scream ‘THOR’ at you. It’s chic, adorably asymmetrical, and that silver fabric looks fabulous. It could have come off as looking cheap or costume-y but Dmitry totally made it work.
White leather? Architectural designs? Yep, these both definitely made me think that Emma Frost might be looking to put these pieces in her closet, especially the jacket. For those who watch the show, you probably recall Dmitry’s winning look for the print challenge. No one does cutouts like he does, especially because he manages to do them without making the design verge on tasteless.
Although this light green colour is rather different from the usual shade associated with Polaris, this dress could definitely work for Lorna. The metal sleeves even give off hints of her powers of magnetism. The colour! The neckline! The side cutouts! Get in my closet now please!
This final looks gives off a Black Cat vibe to me. While the black and white colour scheme is the most obvious connection, the embellishment on the top gives the impression of a v-neckline while the blouse itself is see-through. The layered sleeves also are reminiscent of her costume’s trademarked fur accents.
These are only a few of the designs from his winning final collection, but you can check out the rest of the collection and the other designs he made throughout the show on the official Project Runway site.
If you’re a geek girl who hasn’t heard of Her Universe yet then allow me to introduce you to one of the greatest online shops for geeky t-shirts! Ashley Eckstein, the voice actress for Ahsoka Tano on the Star Wars: Clone Wars, started the company several years ago after noticing the distinct lack of Star Wars t-shirts for women. Since then, she has expanded past Star Wars and now features shirts with designs from Star Trek, Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, and several other SyFy properties.
This year, I was especially excited for October to roll around because not only would I be drinking pumpkin spice lattes and breaking out my boots but I would also get to bring out my fabulous Her Universe Halloween tote bag!
And here’s a close up of the bag since the lighting was not cooperating with me:
Even though this bag has a very limited season, I still love carrying it as often as possible. It’s great for just tossing my wallet, phone, a book, and a sweater into and going! This Katie Cook design is cute, fun, and almost always gets compliments. It’s also one of the easiest ways to get into the Halloween spirit.
While the Halloween tote bag I have was a limited edition, you can still get an adorable Her Universe seasonally appropriate bag. Starting today, Her Universe is offering a brand new Katie Cook designed bag for Halloween 2012! They are likely to go fast so head on over to the online store today to check it out. (The bag has Darth Vader in a unicorn costume. Just try and tell me that’s not awesome.)
