But there’s Marvel and DC influencing ‘wham!’ sweatshirts from Topshop, and then there’s the […]
Tweet Which superhero has the best grooming habits? You may never have considered this, but a couple of ad agencies for skincare have recently teamed up with superheroes to present the idea of male grooming as a manly, bench-pressing activity. And who’s to say it isn’t practical? After a long day in exercising in anything […]
TweetDo you need more t-shirts? That is a trick question. People rarely need more t-shirts, but if you want new t-shirts here are some attractive ones.

What is the Harlem Shake? It involves gathering your friends in a messy room and jigging about merrily while wearing costumes and/or masks. Good old fashioned fun, really. Although the Harlem Shake is a real dance going back a decade or more and performed in Harlem, the new dance is for those too uncoordinated to do it Gangnam Style.
Tweet The doubters came out for yesterday’s story on the Russian girl who makes herself look like a real-life anime character. Some in the comments called for video. So here it is. And more pictures that give you more of a handle on how she does it. Answer: maybe it’s Maybelline! There are several videos […]
Sultry photos of a loungey Wonder Woman accompany Julie Ditrich’s story on Wonder Woman creator William Moulton Marston, with an emphasis on Marston’s pre-50 Shades interest in bondage, domination and having more than one wife—all interests which seeped into the pages of WONDER WOMAN.

The winners of Saturday’s main event are now up, and here’s the grand prize winners, Project Runway All Star Wars
Comic book cosmetics are definitely on the rise. The M.A.C. line of Wonder Woman makeup a few years back was a sellout, and Sephora’s Hello Kitty is still going strong; of course, there was also Spider-Man nail polish and so on.
M.A.C. is following up with a line inspired by Archie Comics. While the PR hasn’t revealed any shades we’d expect the Archie’s Girls line to include bold reds and greens. And to launch the line, Archie’s Dan Parent will be at the San Diego M.A.C. store on Fifth, signing and drawing.
