Illustrator Gives Fun Hipster Makeovers To DC Superheroines

Have you ever wondered what Cat Woman would look like if she were an artsy young purrson trying to make it in the big city, or what Wonder Woman would look like if she shopped at Urban Outfitters? Conversely, have you wondered what you, a stylish young lady, would look like if you were secretly a superhero? Illustrator Elizabeth Beals did, so she drew a bunch of female superheroes from DC Comics as fashion-forward urbanites. (I refuse to put the word “hipster” in the body of a post.)

Gallery: What Do You Think Of This Batman Themed Clothing Line For Grown Women?

In a bit of unexpected cross promo with The Dark Knight Rises, British design label Lazy Oaf is about to release a line of Batman themed clothing for grown-ups. Which makes me wonder: is it ever really possible to make “hip” clothing that takes itself seriously— as the numerous shots of a model wearing Batman clothes, doing editorial poses, and making sexyface would suggest—out of a movie based on a superhero comic? I don’t think so, but maybe you disagree! Peruse the photos and tell me what you think. More »
