X-Opera by kevinwada X-Opera by kevinwada
X-Opera! The X-men go to the opera? Nope...

X-women matched up with famous opera heroines and then put in their finest mid-century outfits. Can you guess who everyone is? Full description of this piece at my blog

Mystique as the Queen of the Night
Psylocke as Cio-Cio San
Storm as Aida
Boom-Boom as Cunegonde
Kitty Pryde as Octavian
Jean Grey as Violetta
Rogue as Carmen

SUCH classy ladies omg. I really love the shadow you added on Rogue's body under her belly, people forget so often to add that little detail and I find that really charming. Really top-notch stuff.

Wow, you just used Boom-Boom. I'm guessing you were a fan in 1987?
The last time she changed her name it was "Meltdown" in 1998(?), but it had been Boomer since 1991. She kind of dropped of the radar when they suddenly dropped X-Force, and replaced it with a terrible, terrible mockery of a comic book.

I love how you did a gender bender on Kitty, though, she's always been more of a tom-boy. And the detail on Storm's collar is gorgeous. :heart:

It was a commission, and the client really loved Boom-Boom. I actually don't know much about her...

Oh, you did the X-Ladies fashion spread too, didn't you? For not being familiar with all the subjects, you caught the characters really well. That and you have a vintage fashion plate style that is just so cool. I'm just going to have to check out the rest of your gallery.

There are no words to describe how much you nailed Mystique!!! (not in a sexual way...)
Psylocke as CioCio is too good a fit! haha

Jean grey in violet is actually a refreshing change! Glad she wasnt Carmen!

Always well thought out and perfect! I don't know much about opera, but each figure has character. And it doesn't hurt that the clothes are believable.
