When the new X-men lineup was announced I, of course, thought it was amazing and refreshing and about damn time. It wasn’t until a friend of mine brought the new team up again that the idea for another X-fashion developed. It really was a “duh” moment for me - they’re ripe for a fashion piece, and not just because they’re women but because they are some of THE biggest female names of the X-men. So I went for it. Wanted something a little more dynamic than X-fashions of the past. My main thought going in was more pants, less dresses and frippery. Of course there’s still bling and heels - you can’t take away all the fun - but I wanted fashion that was a bit more street, more real, a little more badass.
Rachel is grunge. Love her jacket, not so happy with her shirt.
Psylocke is NYC fashionista tomboy. Dip dyed hair (so trendy) and a butterfly print blouse.
I’m really happy with Kitty’s dragon t-shirt and bad ass heels. Had to get a shoe in there somewhere, people.
Storm is my 80s executive realness. Her earring is fashioned after the one Willi Ninja bought (he has the receipt) in Paris is Burning.
My southern belle is in a loud print and hose - she’s the only one in a dress. I wanted her in printed leggings but she was already such a patterned mess I decided against it.
And Jubes is just all over the place. Bikini and hot pants and a bedazzled jacket.
The original will be going up in the store as soon as tomorrow. Prints as well - in TWO sizes :) Hope you guys like it, let me know what you think!
my friend called me out for my obsession with girl superhero sidekicks and IT’S TRUUUUUUEEE
also Wolverine and Jubilee’s relationship is a lot like Old Man Batman and Carrie Kelley and I love it okay
So excited for this book.
just some fun late night sketching.
I think this is my first time drawing Jubilee, Rachel Summers and Kitty.
Logan and kids
Jubilee: Crazy night. You okay?
Jubilee: You sure?
Laura: Yes. Are you… okay?
Jubilee: I’m like a rock star, dude. I’m fantastic.
Jubilee: But… you know… if you ever want to talk about anything…anything at all… I’ll be there for you. We’re friends now. You get that, right? Friends take care of each other. Like family. You have family, X. You have us.
Laura: What if… there are some things I cannot put into words?
Jubilee: Words are overrated. You pick up the phone… and we’ll be quiet together. I just want you to know you can count on me… in case you ever need… in case you ever feel like…
Another Laura/Jubilee scene of perfection! And even better, they’re talking about their feelings on the Eiffel Tower, making this moment all the more beautiful. There’s nothing I don’t love about them.
Jubilee: If this dress isn’t you, say so.
Laura: It is not me. I like… dark colors. Do you want to try this on?
Jubilee: No. But do me a favor, will you? Tell me I’m real.
Laura: You are real. Mirrors, I am told, always lie.
Jubilee: Thanks X.
I absolutely love Laura/Jubilee, definitely one of my favorite friendships! They’re two girls who very much understand each other and what they’re going through. Laura’s searching for her humanity and Jubilee is trying to regain hers.
And I also just really enjoyed seeing Laura forge relationships on her own in this series. Gonna miss everything about this book.
Can’t believe, I’ve taken this long to post this beautiful page up. GIRLFRIENDS!
