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.
Labor Day Weekend is a circled on the calendar of free-spirits of all shapes and species, as WorldCon, Burning Man, Dragon*Con and PAX are all on the schedule — no matter what you like to dress up as, there’s definitely a place to parade around and search for someone else dressed up for the ultimate fantasy.
As you may have heard, nail art is all the rage these days, and its getting more and more ornate. And some ladies are going for comics inspired pieces, such as this, by Brooklyn’s
Fleury Rose, who created this design for someone going to the Dark Knight Rises premiere in New York, who got to show them off to director Christopher Nolan, even. Who wouldn’t want to sport these dark knails?
Looking for a way to declare your allegiance to both The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones…this T-shirt from FSC TEES may be just what you wanted. Only $15 + FREE SHIPPING and after July 29th no more orders will be accepted.
Although eclipsed by the showbiz extravaganza’s in the popular mind, the Masquerade may just be the most spectacular live event at Comic-COn with amazing costumes that people slave over all year. 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.
We were all pretty excited when the first set photos of Henry Cavill as Superman leaked out. It seemed that after years of binding and CGI smoothing, Superman was finally getting super where it counted.
There are several artists on here who show in spades that design is not their strong suit. Or their biker suit.
Yes, it is PRODUCT DAY here on The Beat! And this one is pretty darned cool.
Converse has long had a design-your-own Chuck Taylor’s program on their website. And they’ve just added a
DC Comics themed range to the site. The designs feature the Joker, the Riddler, Catwoman, and, of course, Batman himself.
For Australian Fashion Week, Romance Was Born designers Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales went all Jack Kirby with an “exuberant” mix of stripes and patterns.
Earlier today, we spotlighted the new Wonder Woman Chuck Taylors. But with spring in the air, the ornamental crabapple blooming, and weather warming everywhere, maybe it is time to think of lounging by the pool. And if you favor a star-spangled posterior, Spencer Gifts has just the stuff for you: Wonder Woman and Supergirl bikinis.
Looking for some stylish, superhero-themed footwear to announce your allegiance to Nerd World? Look no further than the new Converse Chuck Taylor All Star DC Comics Wonder Woman and Killer Croc shoes. They go on sale next month exclusively at Journeys—and as usual, they are limited editions, so don’t wait too long to decide which one to get.
You don’t get to 500 episodes without some…comfy lounge wear.
Waste not, want not: although the Wonder Woman costume designed for Adrienne Palicki didn’t help the show fly as a pilot, producer David Kelley must have realized that a newly designed Wonder Woman costume is the kind of thing you keep in the closet for a rainy day. on Harry’s Law, another show he produces, Erica Durance showed up wearing the costume — playing a woman who THINKS she’s Wonder Woman. So it’s both Kelley making an in-joke…and being thrifty and green by recycling! Well played.
Only a few innocent weeks ago, we were kidding around about these Superman socks with calf capes, suggesting they were a suitable gift for a male geek, even though they only come in girls sizes.
And then Robert Griffin III, this year’s Heisman Award winner, picked up his award while wearing these very socks. (The Heisman Triophy is presented each year to the #1 college football player and it is quite an honor.)
Maybe the self-professed comics nut Griffin is a Beat reader? At the very least he has shattered the nerd/jock divide to atoms:
