Comic Books Meet Fashion Week With Katrina Navarro’s Superhero Designs

[View All on One Page]

Katrina Navarro writes, “As you can tell, I love comics and superheroes. At the same time I also love fashion. I thought wouldn’t it be great if I could go out dressed up like a Superhero but in a not so obvious way.” Indeed! I’m not very fashionable myself (my drawers are filled with t-shirts) but this is exactly the kind of thing I’d wear if I wanted to dress up. Take a look at what Navarro was able to make by putting regular clothing items together to create superhero-inspired looks.

    I’d say maybe two of these are actual, wearable celebration of superheroes; the rest really stretch the definitions of “normal” and “subtle”. I also feel like three Robins and two Flashes is a lot of repetition for such a small collection of outfits. And I wish so many of the looks didn’t rely on me owning a purse or shirt with a literal logo of the character on them.

    Interesting premise, but I give it maybe a C+ on execution.

    Miniskirts and buttshorts galore. I see one outfit here I’d wear in public.

    I might need to copy the Raven one for my next cosplay. I totally love it.

    I loved the Green Arrow, Black Canary, and Raven ones — they looked like something actually remotely wearable. Wonder Woman was kind of cute, and the rest probably just aren’t my thing — a little too bright and costume-y. Cool idea though, and admittedly, I don’t get the whole “high fashion” thing much, anyway.

    the wonder woman is kind of ripping off another illustration i’ve seen.
