Just in time for Fall/Winter vigilantism, Forever 21 has launched the Bats and Cats Collection of apparel, accessories and cosmetics, featuring the iconic motifs of Batman and Catwoman. After the success of previous licensed collections showcasing the designs of Hello Kitty/Sanrio and Minnie Mouse, the Bats and Cats line is the first comic-centric collection that Forever 21 has released. Although Forever 21 has occasionally carried DC and Marvel apparel (primarily graphic tees), this collection features a wider variety of merchandise, including Bat-emblem leggings, Catwoman sweaters, and purses covered in gold bat-shaped studs, and more.
Last night I was talking to Kyle Starks about high waisted pants and it got me thinking about fashion. I was also thinking about Storm. When Project:Rooftop was doing their Storm redesign contest I was thinking of entering but wound up not having the time. When I was trying to come up with one for the contest though a lot of people said that I should do something with mohawk/punk Storm. I’ve been thinking about that, and don’t get me wrong, it’s a good look on her but it doesn’t say rebellious or cool anymore. Shit, I’ve got a mohawk. CHRIS SIMS has a mohawk. ‘Nuff said. I also thought it was it was interesting because the punk look was introduced to her in 1983, but punk is a 70’s subculture so even then she was behind the times. Anyway, this is my modern slightly-behind-the-times Storm. She just missed the 80’s revivals but she looks good doing it so who cares.
P.S. What’s the deal with Storm’s usual hair? It’s not even relaxed. It’s just caucasian hair (I wrote white at first and realized that could be confusing). It’s just not African hair at all. And seeing as how her mom is African and her dad is African American I don’t see how that works.
Try as most may to achieve the billowy bird hair sported by Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball GT stars, it’s no cakewalk to train your ‘do up to Saiyan — to say nothing of Super Saiyan — strength. Bandai Premium thinks it can help, however, with its official new Dragon Ball Z hair wax.
