And I shall leave you this week with the wonderful, the amazing, the absolutely fabulous Kevin Wada. His art just looks so gorgeous, it always has. (And do check out the store for more!)

His fashionised versions of so many familiar characters are an absolute delight…

I mean… look at these X-Men below, of which he had this to say… “They’re ripe for a fashion piece, and not just because they’re women but because they are some of THE biggest female names of the X-men.  So I went for it.  Wanted something a little more dynamic than X-fashions of the past.  My main thought going in was more pants, less dresses and frippery.  Of course there’s still bling and heels – you can’t take away all the fun – but I wanted fashion that was a bit more street, more real, a little more badass.”

And more… Emma Frost…
