Kitty Pryde Dress from Suckers Apparel

I like playing dress up. Wearing outfits like those of my favorite characters in comics, TV, and film is just one way in which I express my fandom; however, I don't always want to go through all the trouble of wearing a full spandex suit or putting on a wig. That's where geek chic dresses from Suckers Apparel come into play.

She takes the costumes from your favorite characters and makes amazing dresses and leggings and everything. I approached her about making a Kitty Pryde inspired dress. There was a time when it seemed like Kitty changed her code name and outfit every other issue. After she met Dazzler, she thought a bright roller skate ensemble would be the best idea ever:
It's colorful to say the least, and it didn't last. First came the sketch of the dress:
I freaking loved it. And just look at the finished product:

I need to find the perfect shoes for the dress and maybe add a mask and striped tights, but it works on it's own. The material is spandex-like and sturdy. The dress fit wonderfully, and I love it. No one recognized it, but since it's from a single page of a comic, I didn't expect them to.

I'm working with Suckers Apparel on a couple more dresses, and they also have a store of already designed options that can be made in your size. Captain Marvel, Wonder Woman, a Saga capelet - those are just a few of the items you can find in the store. Happy shopping!


  1. May I recommend these OTK socks? The colors aren't exact, but they're close - http://www.sockdreams.com/products/socks/over-the-knee/dreamy-knees:4804 (in Sweat Pea)
