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.

Steampunk Wonder Woman

DC Comics goes steampunk with these new ThinkGeek exclusive t-shirt designs. Currently, they have The Flash, Wonder Woman, Green Arrow and Superman. Could Batman be far behind?

They’re available in unisex sizes XS to 3XL. From what I can tell, people are already hoping for a ladies cut on that Wonder Woman tee.

1da5_legion_flight_ring

Are you brave and ready to fight evil? Then you might be worthy of this Legion Flight Ring. The DC Comics’ Legion of Super-Heroes team wears rings like this replica from Think Geek. The snazzy accessory is made from gold plated stainless steel so it’s a lot sturdier than the plastic ring that came with the action figures.

Check out another pic of the ring after the break.

black milk superheroes collection 1

Black Milk Clothing has been launching product left and right. Their Batman line recently hit the web, and in just ten days, they’re expanding their superhero collection. While it’s still all about DC Comics (this Marvel girl has a sad face), it focuses on non-Gotham City heroes.

You’ll be able to choose from Wonder Woman and Superman suits with capes, a Rorschach tee, a Black Freighter tee, and star covered leggings that look like they’d be at home in Wonder Woman’s closet. The line also features shiny blue and silver pieces, and a sexy and fun Catwoman bodysuit design. You’ll be able to acquire these items at 9am AEST on March 27th.

Check out more of the line after the break.

The DC Comics line of Bombshells collectibles is nothing short of beautiful, and I like the different spin the statues put on each character. The costumes are drool-worthy. We’ve seen takes on Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, and now cosplayer SpacePizza has shown off her DC Bombshells Supergirl. I pretty much love everything about this look. From the colors to the boots to the scarf and oh my goodness, those gloves! She looks stunning.
