trinity main

DC Comics characters are no stranger to costume changes and artist Stephen Byrne has thrown his hat into the ring with new looks for Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman that appear to take some cues from Denis Medri’s work. That resulted in this Trinity image, which combines the three perfectly (though the Wonder Woman design is our favorite).

See more of his art after the break.

I love silhouette tights, but I really love these DC Comics Batman silhouette tights because I already know I’d put them on and be singing “Na na na na na na Bat TIGHTS!”

What? Don’t look at me like that. You know you’d do it too.

new wonder woman edit

Wonder Woman is getting another new costume this June in Wonder Woman #41 and the booty shorts and bustier have given way to a jacket and pants. She’s also rocking more of an armored look, including wristblade gauntlets that hint at a more violent portrayal of the character.

It feels a little Lady Sif from the waist up, which I think is cool. I’m not 100% sold on the loincloth, but the boots are slammin’.

Get a better look after the break.

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.

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.
