We’re always a little California dreamin’ when it comes to our favourite Miss Jubilation Lee, and not even a dash of vampirism will dampen these spirits. With the announcement that she’s been added to the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse, we’re super hype to see our little loudmouth grace the screen again. (Are we also super hype to see what this girl is gonna wear? Maybe.) Meanwhile, some character colourpop lightens up into easy wear pastels, and her sleek modern black (and the occasional sleeve if you must) to brave the day.
The X-Men will always have our hearts, so when we were tapped for the Giant 90s X-Men Photoshoot at DragonCon this year, it wasn’t hard to say yes — especially since we were asked to be Jubilee and Dani Moonstar. (Just ask us sometime about how we feel about the next gens of X-Men.)
As always, the shoot was definitely a commitment and involved several long hours under the hot sun but we had a blast! There’s nothing quite like getting to be a part of something like this. Every single one of these cosplayers totally brought their A-Game to the shoot and it shows. We’re glad to have been part of it!

Perennial stylebomb and vampiric up-and-comer, Jubilation Lee might have gone goth at the beach but can never truly leave behind her West Coast colour spirit. But sleek black is only a perfect background for a firework medley of yellows and pinks, so let’s serve it up loud and proud.
Ugh, she’s so L.A. … or would be, if Jubilee wasn’t still mired in this long-sleeved vampiric nonsense. But that’s okay, she’s still the colour bomb spirit of my Gen X heart, and possibly also the basis for my fashion fever dreams.
A little bit of urban, a little bit of pop — a whole lot of paf with a pink umbrella. If possible, my hair is probably a little too bright for Jubilee. Ha.
