redhaireddesigner 's Thoughts:

First off, let me give a huge round of hugs and kisses to all my wonderful community members at Chictopia.com who voted me in as August’s Style Icon of the month. It’s a very big honor and it makes me sooo happy to have this kind of dialogue with alike individuals who share my love for eclectic fashion and design. It’s been a great week for community involvement! Black Milk featured me on their facebook page and We Love Colors featured me and my outfit from the Etsy post on their blog. I feel very blessed to know and be in close communication with all these amazing designers and companies who are so dedicated to their customers and community members.

Over at Everyone is Ugly, Chictopia’s online magazine, Iris and Daniel wrote a great wrap up article about Comic Con 2011’s style and the influence comics, gaming and nerd culture have had over the fashion industry this year. I especially loved their Justice League style inspiration mood boards since I’ve been reading a ton of JLA stuff lately (thanks Elias!). Being inspired by my current readings and all these comic con wrap up articles I felt it was a good day to break out another one of my beautiful nerdy handmade dresses. This dress was made by the fabulous Lynn from Lynn’s Rags. She made this gorgeous and simple dress from some vintage Batman bedsheets. This animated batman was the one I remember watching with my bros when I was a kid, so even though it’s not my fav design, it’s got great nostalgic value for me. I remember my brother dressing up as an actual bat one year for Halloween, so great. We loved the show but I always had trouble with the fact that the bad guys always lost….I just thought they might be misunderstood…silly Laura.

I strapped on my Wonder Woman golden belt around the waist of this dress to complete the JLA-esque feel of the outfit. I was pleased at how many people enjoyed this overly geeky and weirdly thought out outfit. I think that sometimes themed outfits are a lot of fun to wear and you can do it in varying degrees of obviousness. You can be as simple as finding supporting coloured items to match your chosen themed or character based outfit. Or you can go as far as styling almost costume-esque accessories and pieces of clothing to go with your daily style comic book character outfit. If done in the right way, you can get away with wearing your wonder woman golden belt without it seeming like you’re wearing a costume. But, all the while, in secret, knowing you are wearing your very own superhero costume! It really was the perfect outfit to wear around on that summer day; light, simple, breezy and most of all, FUN!
