How much do I love Kris Anka’s new Spider-Woman design? So. Freaking. Much. I’ve been a fan of Jessica Drew since I first really got to know her in the New Avengers comics. Her old costume was well known and all but there’s something about the street level versatility of this jacket and glasses that just calls to me, y’know? Needless to say, it went on the ‘must cosplay’ list immediately.
Oh and also? If you’re not reading this book, you are doing yourself a disservice. Go pick it up already.
Thank you to Justin for doing a shoot with me at Awesome Con this year!

Expect to see some upgrades to this costume in the future including some appropriately colored boots. (No glove changes though. I like being able to use my phone.)
Awesome Con is this weekend and it’s going to be totally awesome! As you may have guessed from the image above, I’m taking it easy on the cosplay front this convention but I will be rocking some cute Her Universe fashion on Sunday to compensate. I’ll be roaming around the convention almost from the start on Friday and covering the con for Tosche Station. If you see me, please come say hi.
The two places you’ll definitely be able to find me will be on Sunday on the two panels I’m running. At 11am in Room 145B, I’ll be chatting about Diversity in Pop Culture with Amy Ratcliffe and Esther of Fantom Comics. Then later at 3:30pm in Room 156, it’ll be all things Star Wars as I discuss the State of the Galaxy with John Morton, Amy Ratcliffe, Anna Mitchell, and Jay Shah. If you’re still not convinced, we’ll have plenty of giveaways courtesy of Del Rey including tons of the Samplers they had at Celebration and copies of all of their thus far published books.
How many beautiful gifts did Spider-Verse leave behind for us? Let’s start with Spider-Gwen, and let’s hope this is a gift that keeps on giving. We love her modern minimalism, the pop of colour, and we’re gonna bring that out in a city girl kinda way.
We love a good design, and a clever undercover look that zips up for superhero style? We can definitely go there. Jessica Drew’s modern level up is pretty much perfect, and while a jacket that on point is going to take a special touch, here’s a little moto outfit inspo to tide us over in the meanwhile.
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
