Hey ladies! Headed to NYCC this week? Be sure to check out the Her Universe/Hot Topic pop up store at the Official ReedPOP Supply Co. Store at New York Comic Con because they will have the anticipated Women of Marvel collection available! As you can see below, they will have dresses inspired by Captain Marvel, Peggy Carter, and Black Widow and jackets inspired by Scarlet Witch and Spider-Gwen. The Spider-Gwen design actually comes from Lindsay Hamilton’s piece for the 2015 Her Universe Fashion show!
If you can’t make it to NYCC, the collection will be available online at HotTopic.com and at select stores. (Although if The Force Awakens collection is any indication, you’ll have way better luck online as barely any stores seemed to have it.)
What pieces are on your must have list?
Ahh, thanksgiving weekend in Canada is coming up. That can only mean Lin is spending some quality time with New York Comic Con (Oct 10-13) and a full party hard weekend of comic book revelry. Sadly without my partner-in-crime, so I won’t be hauling a cosplay closet’s worth out there — but there’s still a few new things on offer. As always, feel free to come up and say hello!
(When not in costume, you can spot me at twenty paces by my ridiculous hair. Hola.)
Most likely wearing Asuka Langley (Red Cross Book Fanzine version) on Thursday, or Friday for the Evangelion 3.33: You Can (Not) Redo premiere; a slightly pared down Dani Moonstar is being made express for the Fearless Defenders photoshoot on Friday at noon; Miss America is basically a comfort costume to get up to no good all weekend.
So I totally bat for Team Blazer and if we want to drop more pop culture references, I would be Putting A Blazer On It to the tune of this. So when it comes to styling tees, I take a note from my comic book fashion buddy Quintavius Quirinius Quire.
Here’s a second take on the Marvel NYCC tee; check out the first time here! Also: I love clear lucite / perspex heels on things.
ROUND TWO: I NEED TO GO TO WORK BUT IT’S STILL CASUAL DAYTIME!!

Heeled Oxfords: Simone Rocha inspos
I wore those heeled oxfords in NYC and some sassy gay dude totally complimented me on them. Gold star.
But no, seriously, I really dig Quentin’s style persona. I hope that one day he grows up into a little Yohji Yamamoto and Rick Owens hottie and that Jamie McKelvie will draw his adventures and limitless asymmetric haircut possibilities. I will talk about this one day.
Tees? Not my thing. But when a sizable amount of comic book wear comes in the form of my age old nemesis, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. Which is essentially customising a tee by cutting it up. Boy, I’m just a regular superhero aren’t I.
As the “I Survived The Battle of New York” was a ~special exclusive~ from NYCC, and NYCC broke me as a person BUT IN A REALLY GOOD WAY, this will be a two-parter on How To Style A Tee When You Don’t Really Wear Jeans And Tees Are Not Your Thing Okay.
ROUND ONE: IT’S CASUAL DAYTIME AND I NEED A QUICKIE OUTFIT!!

Quickie Fashion Advice Time With Lin: Teeshirts don’t have to be same old, same old. Give crew necks a touch-up by cutting a wider neckline; cut basic sleeves at an angle for insta interest. And you don’t need to fancy it up, either — a quick way to navigate around this is to flip the bird at old adages, and just tuck it in with a skirt or a pair of skinny jeans. Add heels or ballet flats, and a funky belt. Voila!
Special heart-shaped thanks for the patent Coach wristlet because it was a birthday gift from Mandy, my favourite asshole. Whenever I use it, I think fondly of the time we almost died of alcohol poisoning and comic books.
Con reports, let’s do this thing. Lin is back from the perfection that was New York Comic Con, and here to share the little tidbits that you may have missed from her sporadic online presence over the con weekend, re: black hole that was the Javits Convention Center.
- Marvel NOW!: Join the ReEvolution
- Stan Lee’s World of Heroes
- Marvel Television Present
- Marvel NOW!: Cup o’ Joe
- Women of Marvel
A series of caplocks sans capslock:
Two unannounced Marvel lady titles; a possible third, but it’s on the fence because it’s a little risqué. And to top it off, there’s apparently some things in the works for Wasp? My baby gurrrrrl, I possibly had tears on my face. (Aside from Rick Remender currently doing that weird robot acsension thing with Janet Van Dyne, hopefully.) There’s going to be Ultron down the line, picking up probably from the things in Mighty Avengers? so WHO KNOWS, WHO KNOWS ROBOTS FOR ALL. /speculate
1. Seen at the Lego booth. Keepin’ the dream alive, yeah.
2. Clark Gregg at the Marvel TV panel.
Agent Coulson is back for the SHIELD television show, yep. Surprise-but-not-really-a-surprise appearance from Clark Gregg. What a cutie. Had feels all over his face when they presented that Agent Coulson in memoriam video.
Feels all over my freakin’ face for new Guardians of the Galaxy and Nova books. Euphoria quickly followed by apprehension, re: team. I get it, I get it. Movie tie-ins; bringing it closer to the rest of the Marvel 616. But do we really need to bench Moondragon or Mantis for Iron Man? I’ve already given up on Phyla-Vell because my heart can’t take the anyway.
Star-Lord, your helmet oh no. But trust in Steven McNiven because he’s good people.
1. Lin as Leah and Nara Rouge as Kid Loki with the amazing Stephanie Hans, artist for Journey Into Mystery.
2. Get your copy of Phonogram signed by Kieron Gillen whilst dressed as Leah? Magic obviously happens.
1. We don’t know what the term for a group of Kid Loki is, but here you go. With editor Lauren Sankovitch throwing up the gang signs.
2. So a friend and I totally vogued with Kieron Gillen at a photobooth. Assholes, Inc.
