I really enjoy the new costumes Stuart Immonen designed for the time-displaced “All-New” X-Men. They look youthful, modern, unique, and unified without being rigidly uniformed. The one problem? Their teacher dresses like it’s 20 years ago. Uncool, teach!

Professor X, who once wrangled these 5 teens by barking orders with his mind, could wear whatever dour earth-tone cardigan he felt suited his mood in the morning because no one ever saw the guy standing next to his sharply-dressed X-men. Kitty Pryde is right on the front lines with the teens, fighting side by side with them, RUINING EVERY GROUP SHOT WITH HER TERRIBLE COSTUME. Kitty needs to step up to her new role in some new threads. 

SO, I’ve mocked up a new costume for her as if it were one of Immonen’s designs. Totally fun trying to mimic his sketch style. 

  • Since they each have individual touches, I kept some geometric hints of her classic costume design, but tried to match the look and feel of the costumes her students are wearing.
  • Her signature color is blue, but with Scott and Bobby already covering that end of the spectrum, she needed *gasp* a new base color. Why not purple? I think she can rock it. Kind of a nod to absent Lockheed :) 
  • A bit more padding than usual, since she seems to get knocked about fairly often lately.

What do you think, brianmichaelbendis? #newkittycostume

bringing the 80s colour scheme back a bit.

PLEASE~!  Rogue should be fierce and action-y! Hoods are so dour.

These are really great. Mags definitely needs to lose the outside-underpants.

Project: Rooftop FF Redesign

I did okay in this competition! I got a high score and nice remarks from Stuart Immonen, which sort of makes the less-complimentary comments and scores not so important. :)  There are some fantastic designs and interpretations of the FF here. Check it out!

This is one of my favorites:

I’ve usually enjoyed the look of the Fantastic Four. They have a color unity and symmetry to their costumes that says “team”, “family” “action” and “science!” That said, they can be a little square. I’d like to think that if they went to some late-night Inhuman soiree on the moon they wouldn’t wear the same outfits they wore to the Negative Zone collecting slime samples. Still, the clothes have got to be as action-ready as they are fun. You know as soon as _______________ (the longtime enemy of ______________) shows up, there’s gonna be stretching, flaming, clobbering, and …er.. invisbling?
