What can we say — if she wears the star, our hearts are set. Nothing gets us going like a face turned toward the stars and a thirst for more, and the lady legacy of all Captains Marvel will always take us there. For superheroic cosmic style we turn to colourblocking and particular gold accents, and serve it up with a star.
Want more Captain Marvel? It’s kinda a thing we do.
It’s no small deal when your esteemed editors can get together and high five each other in the face. Every opportunity to throw on ridiculous friendship sister outfits is an opportunity to be relished, and it was only natural that we wanted to reprise our Captain Marvel and Spider-Woman looks while we had a bit of Katsucon downtime because how perfect together??
Pretty perfect together.
Thank you to Lionel for the pictures!! <3
Happy Kamala Day! Today marks the launch of Ms. Marvel #1 by G. Willow Wilson and Adrian Alphona. The book, in case you hadn’t heard, stars Kamala Khan, a young Pakistani girl who can shape shift and who also happens to idolize Carol Danvers.
The good news is that it’s pretty easy to stealth or closet cosplay as the newest Ms. Marvel. It definitely helps that she’s a fangirl just like us! Best part is that this is all comprised of things you likely already have in your closet or that you can acquire easily.
Step 1 is the shirt! WeLoveFine has specially made one for sale but if you need one fast or if you’re a bit pinched for cash, it’s simple enough to make one. Just get a plain black t-shirt from somewhere like Old Navy or Forever 21 and put the lightning bolt shape on there yourself with something like fabric paint or an iron on transfer or even an appliqué if you’re feeling bold.
Step 2 is the bottoms! The easiest suggestion would be a pair of jeans. If you want to invoke Jamie McKelvie’s design a bit more, I suggest either a dark blue denim skirt or shorts with either red leggings or tights underneath.
Step 3 is shoes. Short boots are totally the name of the game here.
Step 4 is possibly the most important step: the scarf! Kamala is sporting a totally gorgeous red/purple/orange mosaic patterned scarf on the cover of Ms. Marvel #1 and has a thin red one as a part of her superhero costume. Either type definitely works here! Remember this is about stealth and closet cosplay, not necessarily page accuracy.
Step 5 is accessorize! With something like this FREAKING PERFECT MARVEL RING. (It was too perfect not to share with you all!)
And that’s it! Now get on out there in Kamala Korps style, and be sure to swing by either your local comic store or a digital retailer today to snag Ms. Marvel #1 for yourself!
Naughty or nice? That’s totally your personal business, man. But whenever our nearest and dearest come around with the eternal question of What Would You Like For Christmas? well, nobody can accuse us of being unprepared. Especially when it comes to geek flavoured fashion and dressing like a superhero on the low-low.
(We took some of our cues from Hawkeye, Ms Marvel and Dazzler. Of course.)
We love what we like. And if you’re coming up short for stylin’ gift-giving ideas at the last minute, we have you covered.
Oh yes. We also need this to exist. For reasons.
