Superman

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.

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.

Superman car

Just because your car has a cape doesn’t mean you can fly fast enough to escape law enforcement. The Central Motorway Policing Group (CMPG) in the United Kingdom recently pulled over a car with a red cape on England’s M42 freeway. The driver and passenger were both dressed like Superman and got busted because they didn’t have insurance. CMPG took to Twitter with the above photo to say, “Even Superman needs insurance! We don’t work for Lex Luthor but we had to remove Superman’s wheels from the road.”

superheroes adventure 1

Superheroes often spend their days surrounded by people who need their help. While it’s a worthy cause, it’s going to wear them down. A photomanipulation series by Benoit Lapray showcases what heroes might do in their off hours. The collection of images features cosplayers dressed as Wonder Woman, Superman, Captain America, and Spider-Man out in the wild enjoying nature and peace and quiet. They’ve earned it.

See more of the series after the break.

Live-action DC Superhero costumes have come a long way… or at least, most of them have. Reddit user hitokirivader created a unique tribute to the evolution of Superman and Batman costumes—he also included a nice jab to help remind everyone just how little cinematic attention the one true Amazonian princess, Wonder Woman, has received in the last few decades.

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.

makeup bag wonder woman

Though ladies have been getting more and more geeky products tailored to their tastes, makeup and cosmetics is an area that’s still growing. There’s so much potential when it comes to makeup bags, for example, and I’m glad to see someone jumping on it. Bioworld Merchandising is offering bags featuring Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman, and Harley Quinn. You can pre-order now for an estimated arrival date in April.

And even though they’re called makeup bags, they’re great for on-the-go sewing kits, pencil cases, and much more!

Check out the other makeup bag styles after the break.

darth vader hollywood

Hollywood has one exceptionally touristy intersection where people crowd the sidewalks and costumed characters roam the streets trying to get tips. Crime isn’t uncommon, but you don’t see a guy bust out the windows of an LAPD car every day. A photographer for a local news station was nearby and recorded the whole thing as he was calling 911, and the video shows Darth Vader standing nearby watching the whole thing go down. Superman also shows up as a witness. Only in Hollywood.

A lot of people walked by as if nothing was happening, but given that the guy looked angry and was wielding blunt objects, I don’t blame them for moving along.

Watch the video after the break.
