You look great, Illyana–no need to hide! Artist: Frank Cho Source: X-Men: Battle of the Atom
Look, I know we all hate Battle of the Atom (I can only assume, since we all have taste), but let me present to you this from the very first page: Illyana in a cape. Where is my Illyana in a cape follow-up? I need this in my life. Capes.
Barcelona-based fashion designer Alassie of El Costurero Real creates delicate cloaks, capes, and scarves that look like diaphanous moth and butterfly and wings for an instant fairy transformation. Each pair of vibrantly-colored insect wings is made of muslin that’s so light and delicate it looks like chiffon. The edges of the wings are wired to help them keep their shape and make them easy to use while dancing. Build a human-sized cocoon and you’ll be ready to entertain friends at parties or stage impromptu street performances.
Visit the El Costurero Real Etsy shop to check out more of Alassie’s wings as well as all sorts of other fantasy, Victorian, and steampunk garments and accessories.
Blue Diamond from Steven Universe. I finished watching the series, and I thought Blue Diamond was an interesting character. I had so much fun making the Garnet illustration, I’d thought I’d try one more. Maybe I’ll keep going!
