Arrow

If you’ve been watching Arrow, then you know Ray Palmer’s been working on his A.T.O.M. prototype, but now you can get your first look at Brandon Routh in the costume. Routh will be suiting up on the 15th episode, currently scheduled for February 25th.

It also looks like The Atom suit will be doing a little time at S.T.A.R. Labs thanks to a sneak peek from Grant Gustin.

bombshells and rockabilly 8

This cosplay combines the DC Bombshells and Rockabilly heroes and villains. In one fell swoop, it has become one of my favorite cosplays ever.

We posted about this group last year and Laura was kind enough to send us new pictures of their updated cosplays.

The ladies are all cosplaying the DC Comics Bombshells inspired by the art of Ant Lucia, while the guys take on Batman and Riddler inspired by the art of Denis Medri. Superman, Green Lantern, Joker and Aquaman appear in their own original cosplay creations.

While bombshells like this usually graced the screen or the sides of bombers in WWII, DC Comics Bombshells will grace your backpack while you daydream in class.

Maybe take it to a con and put some awesome DC Bombshells art or action figures in it, then you’d have Bombshell-ception.

dc villains underwear pack

We’ve already seen a Harley Quinn 3-pack of panties this month, and now you can add The Riddler, The Joker, and Poison Ivy to your collection. Although, I don’t know if I want anything that looks like poison ivy that close to me, but you may feel differently.

It’s fun, flirty and in character and they come in sizes small – 2X.

gcrollergirls

Artist Tom Kurzanski imagines DC Comics villainesses Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy as Derby Girls in these awesome t-shirts.

As Kurzanski himself noted about the designs:

“What better way to portray strong female characters than the world where femininity and power go hand-in-hand? Roller Derby.”

The GC Rollergirls are already looking strong with Criminal Miss Conduct and Bad Seed on the roster. I’m thinking they might win it all.

renaissance batman

Photographer Sacha Goldberger recently took part in a photo exhibition at the Grand Palais in Paris. He created positively stunning portraits of comic book superheroes and villains, Star Wars, and Disney characters as they would appear in 16th century art. He spent two years creating his Super Flemish series (inspired by Flemish paintings) and worked with a team of twelve people to get the makeup, hair, and special effects just right. Five costume designers made the outfits for the characters in the series including: Batman, Wonder Woman, Iron Man, R2-D2, Darth Vader, Hulk, and many more.

The photos have been retouched, but even without that, this series is absolutely magical. The art looks like paintings rather than photographs. Plus, the likenesses to actors like Christopher Reeve and Lynda Carter (an effect created with makeup and lighting) is uncanny at times.

Check out more of Goldberger’s amazing images after the break.

dc oh noes

Female geek friendly apparel has come such a long way that it almost hurts my neck from whiplash when I see something this…bad.

The Superman version first came to my attention thanks to a tweet by fellow Fashionably Geek contributor Alan Kistler (thank you Alan!) which cut pretty much to the heart of why they were so…icky. Apparently,  Wonder Woman is a thing to win and girls can only grow up to be Batman’s wife. Amazingly, someone at DC approved these designs.

It’s a bummer because there are a lot of licensed tees out there that empower women to BE the superhero instead of belonging to one.

In this day and age, it’s too bad that these these regressions still happen. However, I content myself with the knowledge that, overall, things are better than they used to be and that we’re making strides all the time.

bombshell batwoman 1

Ant Lucia’s bombshell designs for DC Comics attracted plenty of attention and sparked new costume plans left and right. Cosplayer GillyKins loved the Batwoman design and decided to style the full costume like a woman’s baseball uniform a la A League of Their Own. She told Geek x Girls that she made a few updates to keep the outfit looking like something Batwoman would wear. The finished costume is gorgeous, and I like that she went to a baseball diamond for a photo shoot. It’s perfect.
