Comic Book Inspired Fashion: The Wave Of The Future (Or Now?)

Fashion for Nonhumans

I’ve long been a fan of anything comic related appearing on my clothing but that usually entails a Batman symbol on a t-shirt. Designers and fan/designers are going out of their way to create unique fashion based on our favorite heroes. Hit the jump for some more delightful Avengers sketches plus Jack Kirby inspired fashion, and a dress made out of comic strips! 

Here’s the rest of the stylish Avengers by KaciArt. They are all something I would try on but I’m all over that Captain America outfit.

From Fashion Tips from Comic Strips I found this delightful Modcloth dress. But don’t bother, it’s already sold out.

And now for some runway fashion inspired by Jack Kirby, you know, the artist responsible for creating Captain America, Iron Man, the Hulk, and more? Fashionising has a slew of pictures from a runway show by designer duo Luke Sales and Anna Plunkett in a partnership with Marvel. Here are a few highlights.
