Halloween Inspiration: The Avengers
Posted on October 28 2013
Comic Books are rife with Halloween costume opportunities--just look at the cosplay trend! The thrill of escaping your own world-weary existence and pretending to be someone with superpowers for even a few hours has an obvious appeal. Marvel's 'The Avengers' series offers several alluring characters, including Black Widow, Scarlet Witch, and Mantis, to name a few. For anyone who owns a skin-tight leather jacket, all you need are the Jade Leggings to pull off the Black Widow. Layering options include the Lyra Bodysuit and the Galerie Vivienne Bodysuit. If you're opting for Scarlet Witch, you can't go wrong with the Dorado Bodysuit by Relique. Mantis is a saucy little minx who wears next to nothing that could be fashioned out citron yellow lingerie pieces like the Heidi Brief and Garter, the Garden Boyshort, or the X-Strap Bikini Bottoms.You can also craft your own yellow and green cardboard cutouts and affix them to a bodysuit like the Oisive or the Marguerite Riding. If none of these characters are to your liking, then you can always invent your own superhero. Start with the Sylvie Cami, a great nude layering piece, then add Opaque Tights in any color, and top it off with the Colors Triangle Bralette and Colors Boyshort. Come up with a clever tagline, add a cape with a letter on the back and throw on a mask--you're good to go.
