What Superheroines Would Look Like In Comfy Pants
Why Not Do It With Some Style?
Previously, we put forth a challenge to our readers to illustrate what Batman would look like fighting in stilettos to juxtapose the norm that is superheroines constantly being drawn wearing (or actresses forced to perform in) high heels to fight crime. One of our readers, Joanna (@super_widget) talked about how superheroes are constantly being drawn by fans outside their usual costumes, i.e. steampunk, Rule 63, etc. But it was when she wrote the phrase, “female super heroes in comfy pants” that we knew we had our next challenge. We left it pretty open this time, they didn’t have to be fighting, just wearing any sort of comfortable trousers. Above is Sarah Levine’s (@morphmaker) illustration of Batwoman Kate Kane in not just comfy pants but her famous pink bunny slippers. Hit the jump for seven more fantastic images!
Amy Rachels had an adorable ensemble for Wonder Woman.
Amber Love (@elizabethamber) drew Sue Storm of the Fantastic Four doing yoga!
Jess Zimmerman (@j_zimms) did a little switcheroo of Watchmen characters Silk Spectre and Rorschach.
Sophie (MeloncholyWise) depicted not one but TWO Batgirls in comfy pants!
Logan Riley (@TheLitBandit) took on the X-Men’s Kitty Pryde, aka, Shadowcat, with Lockheed.
Another Kate Kane, this one by Michelle Six (@TheTiniestRant)
And I saved my favorite for last. Here’s Wonder Woman in star-spangled sweats illustrated by Elaine Snowden (@elainesnowden)
Thank you SO much to everyone who participated and again, sorry I couldn’t include all of the submissions but I loved what you did! Now if we can just get their costumes in the comics to look a little more comfortable from time to time…
