supergirl top

The first images of Melissa Benoist, in her full Supergirl costume have been revealed ahead of filming the upcoming series pilot for CBS.

Costume designer Colleen Atwood, who also designs the cosumes for Arrow and The Flash, had a very specific idea when she created this new Supergirl look:

“In designing Supergirl, I wanted to embrace the past, but more importantly, thrust her into the street-style action hero of today.”

I think she nailed it. It pulls together a look that’s a little more sedate and serious, but still young and optimistic. Plus, the boots. I love the boots.

I was not the biggest fan of Jupiter Ascending, but I have literally nothing negative to say about society6 user Stefanie’s fanart of Caine, Channing Tatum’s genetically spliced human-wolf. Given some of the stupid stuff that went on in that movie, I think there’s a Moon Moon crossover to be made next.

You can buy “Three Wolf Jupiter” as a print, shirt or hoodie on Stefanie’s shop.

turtle v

This is the TurtleV, a “modern garment that is not only very fashionable, but also offers the supreme style and comfort you have always been looking for,” as quoth its Kickstarter page.

The Kickstarter page also says the main goal in designing the shirt was to give men a way to expose their chest without their necks getting cold (what they call “Comfort Neck Warming Technology”), but we know what’s really up here. C’mon, which of you guys in the video is a Power Girl fan?

What happens when a hentai artist designs a skin for Soul Calibur? Well, let’s just say that that whole argument about effective female armor just suffered another setback.

Manga artist Yamatogawa made this “Magic Knight” outfit which can be worn by Ivy and Amy in Soul Calibur: Lost Swords.

Only in a fantasy world would this breastplate hold…anything.

Those cute little mice whip up a beautiful dress, but this variant might be out of their reach. In Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella, which opens next month, the wedding dress designed by Sandy Powell draws on the original, but with updated touches that make it worthy of any bride walking down the aisle today.

The beige silk organza gown took 15 people over 500 hours to complete and features a dozen layers of fabric. To keep it looking light and airy, they used crepeline silk, printed polyester, and iridescent nylon. The wedding dress was so complex that only one version was made for the movie. Her ballgown, however, was duplicated 9 times with each using 270 yards of fabric and 10,000 Swarvovski crystals. Those dresses each took 18 people 500 hours to complete.

It’s tough being a single parent, and if you happen to be a dad with a little girl, then you’ve got the challenge of doing her hair all to yourself. Greg Wickherst had the task of putting his 3-year-old daughter Izzy’s hair into a ponytail, so he went to beauty school to learn how. Luckily, he works as an admissions representative at the IntelliTec College, and the school has a cosmetology department. He tells HuffPo:

“In no time, I was able to do a simple braid, then a fishbone braid, and a French braid. I learned how to do a ponytail, then flip it through itself either under or over. I call that an inverted ponytail,” he said.

He was clearly already an awesome Dad as this shot of him as Vader with Izzy as Leia proves, but beauty school? He gets a giant gold star for that one.

superman-new-costume-top-120621

It was rumored that the first run of Geoff Johns and John Romita, Jr.’s new take on Superman in the New 52 would feature the Last Son of Krypton wearing an updated costume. And it looks like the rumors were true! Well, the costume doesn’t look that much different from what we’ll see in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, but I will say that I like his new belt, and I also like the higher neckline. What’s up with the fingerless gloves though? Is that some sort of ’80s fashion statement?

We’ve featured the amazing work of Prince Armory in the past with gems like this medieval Joker and Loki armor—but holy sh*t with this Darth Vader version.

Owner Samuel Lee notes:

Conceptually this was a very challenging project. When you work on a very iconic character you have to think long and hard about how much liberty you want to take with the design. On one hand you don’t want it to play it too safe and have it a borderline carbon copy; that would be boring. And on the other you don’t want to go so far it is no longer recognizable or make design decisions that puts the fan base up in arms.

So I settled on trying to capture a number of the design elements within the classic Vader such as the banding patterns and many design lines, and then expanded into the fantasy realm with the red inlays and articulated armor designs.

The design scheme overall is of course very alternate universe. Ultimately I was going for a blend of Sci-Fi, Medieval, and Mystical Fantasy.

This crazy-cool pixellated hair is a new trend in coloring by X-Presion that was recently featured in a Revlon Professional collection. Hair color is applied to just small sections of the hair to give it a blocky, pixellated look. Sometimes it’s subtle with colors complementing the natural hair color, but some of it is wild with bright greens and reds that will have you rubbing your eyes.

r2 belly

Tony Giordano and his wife Stefaney are expecting. They’re big Star Wars fans so, naturally, they got R2-D2 to help keep things running smoothly until the big day.

Artist Nick Wolfe painted her belly and Daniel Deutsch supplied the life-size droid (and the pictures).

Head after the break for two more shots.
