We all got the memo that Her Universe is totally awesome, right? I went a little more casual with today’s outfit because I just had to do a styling for their wonderful Battlestar Galactica inspired Cylon t-shirt. The outfit and pictures are slightly influenced by Number Six and also by Number Eight, since I am wearing Sharon’s dog tags as a finishing touch to the outfit and also because she’s my favourite. Mostly I just wanted an excuse to enjoy the nice weather and ham it up in this fabulous shirt which I absolutely recommend getting if you’re a BSG fan! I love the cut of it, especially the neckline, and I think it’s a great yet fairly subtle little way to show your love for the show.
Shhh… There are many copies… and they have a plan. (Don’t worry, I’m not a Cylon.)
Cylon T-shirt: Her Universe
Red Skinny Jeans: Express
Combat Boots: Macy’s
Necklace: Official BSG Sharon Agathon Colonial Fleet dog tags
Bracelets: Assorted shops, including Black Rune Jewelers
Fierce? Let’s talk fearless. In honour of Fearless Defenders being launched this week, we get our style inspo from the leading ladies: Misty Knight, Valkyrie, and Dani Moonstar. So armour up with metal accents, add a pop of red to your look, and fly that winged horse in style — there’s a world to save and you have all this asgardian kungfu just lying around.
We love leading ladies and we love valkyrior style — so check out Fearless Defenders at your local, or find it online at comixology! You can also check out our inspo outfits for Dani Moonstar and Misty Knight here, as part of our Marvel NOW! series.
In honour of Fearless Defenders being launched this week, we bring you a Dani Moonstar and Misty Knight team-up! Just in case you missed it, we ladies have been doing jumping high fives all over the internet since its announcement. So here’s a little something to celebrate the street date.
This is actually part of a What Are You Wearing miniseries we’re doing — Marvel NOW! is launching some books that we’re pretty darn psyched about, so we thought we’d honour their releases with outfits inspired by members of the team. (Check out our previous entries: Young Avengers and Uncanny X-Force!) As always, you’ll see our personal touches, i.e. Bria is a totally classy dame and Lin is just going to
be this douchebag trainwreck wear all black like a goth who can’t give it up. Enjoy.
This Week: Fearless Defenders by Cullen Bunn and Will Sliney!
Lin: While we take an official pro-New Mutants position here, and Dani Moonstar is basically the kickpuncher grand dame of our heart-shaped feels, we try to keep the awkward cultural appropriation bs on the minimal so I’m not going to wear feathers in my hair and fight a spirit bear in the Sienkiewicz Arena of Dreams, East Coast Division.
Thankfully, it’s been dark valkyrie ladystyle on the up and up, and I am super okay fighting my way out of the belly of Hel beasts. And I’M THE BEST AT WHAT I DO AND WHAT I DO is subscribe to a dark aesthetic because I have a great appreciation for designers that subvert traditional bla bla bla…
Feather print to recall Dani’s visual motifs; spikes to crown her in Hela’s glory; silver accents to armour her in the metal plate of her Asgardian calling. I’m on this.
Bria: Tight red pants? Check. One Misty Knight inspired outfit coming up. I was a little nervous about putting this look together because Misty is just that badass. I’ve got a thing about wearing colours that don’t match so wearing a red shirt was out so into my closet of black I went! (WHR: Black is where it’s at.) I was super psyched that this asymmetrical black and gold top worked out because it helped give the impression of her mechanical arm. And from there, it was, well you know the drill, I found all the gold accessories I had and wore them. I swear I’m slightly less tacky than that just made me sound.
Also, appreciate the bonus picture of me kicking things. Because I could.
And that’s a wrap, folks! You can always check out our past entries for Young Avengers and Uncanny X-Force, and for all our inspo outfits, simply check out the What Are You Wearing feature. It’s still early in the game, and we have a whole year of fashion delights and disasters ahead of us!
