X-Fashions: All Female Lineup by kevinwada X-Fashions: All Female Lineup by kevinwada
OF COURSE. Of course, I had to do it. Had to fashionize the new all female X-men roster. I wanted them more badass and street than previous X-fashions which have tended toward glitz and glam. There's a slight 80s feel to the whole piece which sort of came out of nowhere. I blame the color blocking of the background which, for some reason, to me screams 80s. There's a fuller description on my tumblr. I really enjoy the feedback on DA so don't be a stranger danger.

“I see fashion everywhere and everything is fashion”  The main point is in selecting the suitable dress shirt with slim fit and at cheap rates. .The rich look of men' shirts should satisfy your look and supply comfort too..:) Shirt Hq

Oh. My. God. This is stunning.
I really love it and the details. I love the shadows on Psylocke hair and the purple reflection on the top of the tshirt; I loce Storm single earring and the pattern of bot her jacket and her tie; I love Rachel's outfit, she looks great and I also love Rogue's.
And Kitty. I love your Kitty. She's always so beautiful!

This is absolutely brilliant! I love it! I especially love what you did with Psylocke, she looks, in my opinion the best out of the bunch. Great job! Congrats on the variant cover for X-Men #1--well done!

This is so incredibly awesome. And it has so much style and power without having to ridiculously sexualize the character.

Oh I love this one! *again reaches out toward computer screen to grab clothes :XD: * Love the poses and their expressions as well! Also, Rouge looks a bit like Stana Katic! :D
nagth Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2013
Oh whoa this is simply gorgeous! Freaking stunning man.
I really love your colouring Im just amazed every time I see a new piece of your work. Jubilees jacket details are terrific (Im guessing shes jubilee) and Rachel has this sort of grungey vibe to me. Im just generally stunned at how well you get each character and dress them acordingly to their personality.
(Im dying a little because I need Storms suit, girl is looking good on it. You go girl, make it work)

Femmes-Fatales Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Given the current fashion scene, I think the styles you have them wearing are en vogue to some extent since most of the trends popular in the '80s have been picked up by those pesky pretentious hipsters out there. I've admired your work from afar and can appreciate the fact that you bring the various Marvel characters you've done from hopelessly tit-and-ass to high fashion. It's a very refreshing thing to see. This piece is no exception to that.

My first impression here is that there's a possible sense that each character's personality shines through via their clothing. Rachel channels her late-'80s punk style with the ripped jeans and leather jacket adding a bit of early-'90s grunge into the mix with the plaid flannel shirt. It's interesting that the writers have decided to regress Rachel to a more tomboy look in the comics after she went super femme for a while there with that uber cute mini-skirt outfit. I suppose Rachel is more butch anyway. It sets her apart from her "mom." With Jubilee, I see a youthful willingness to try trends and that really comes across here. It almost looks like she spent a day rummaging through a flea market to find "vintage" clothes to put her look together. Strangely enough, facially she looks like J-pop singer Namie Amuro. As for Kitty, I think there's an almost effortlessness to how she looks. Since she once worked as a bartender, I can imagine this being part of her ensemble for said job. The pants are very Coyote Ugly and the shirt is a nice reference to the fact that she has a pet dragon. Betsy here, to me, looks the most fashionable at least when it comes to the fabulous blazer-shirt combo. She was a supermodel once upon a time so I've always pictured her being the most fashion-forward... out-fierced only by Dazzler, of course (pop stars always trump supermodels). Rogue has always been a bit of a dump when it comes to fashion. She attempts to chase trends and has no real personal sense of style which has always been indicative of the fact that Rogue herself has no sense of identity or personality (not forgetting her "default" 616 personality was as a raging psychotic) so I think that the outfit Rogue is wearing here matches her in that she's not as fierce as the others and almost looks Golden Girls-like. She could certainly pass for Blanche Devereaux (at least outfit-wise... and accent-wise heh). I did have to save Storm for last though. She is F-I-E-R-C-E. Should we expect anything less? Storm is the risk-taker of the X-Men when it comes to fashion so I love that she's channelling Grace Jones. She has on this spectacular business suit with a tie and it screams "I'm going to dominate you." You've also made the mohawk work here. I loathe the mohawk on Storm so if anyone can make it look any less dated then I say good on them.

Overall, you've done yet another spectacular job... but alas... seeing the new "all female" line-up for that X-Men title only reminds me that Marvel failed to place Dazzler once more amongst her best friends. They cancelled her title and now she's not even invited onto the all-female X-Men team despite the fact that Psylocke is her best friend and the fact that two of the women are fans of hers? Tisk tisk. I don't really know what they have against her. Maybe it's because she's kicked Wolverine AND Rogue's asses before?

Rogue's auburn hair has escaped her like Sigourney Weaver half-way through a film.

Love it! Psylocke kind of looks like Summer Glau, which is of course, never a bad thing. Great range in their looks, makes them feel more real in a way.

SWEEEEET!!!!!!!!! Love that Storm and Janelle Monae look alike :D

I just love how you capture their unique personalities and styles with their clothing. All of them are in synch with their character... I could believe them to wear things like that in comics! :)
