| Ms. Marvel
by Vera Wang
idea came to me while I was surfing around for something completely
different and found a Vera Wang dress that caught my eye. For the
record, "yes" I'm a guy and I know who Vera Wang is. XD
So this image popped into my head of a Ms. Marvel-inspired evening
gown, so I started sketching up ideas. Because she's the guru of
all things clothing, I hit up my friend Cathy of God Save the Queen for
fashion advice. Originally I had the gold piping on both ends of
the satin design criss-crossing her torso, but Cathy pointed out that
it would be overkill and in cases like this "less is more." I
ended up keeping that design, but limited the piping to just one end of
the satin. I think it works in being subtle yet still keeping Ms.
Marvel's lightning bolt motif. For both the gold trim and the red
sash I kept the colors pretty dark and muted so they wouldn't stand out
so much from the black of the dress.
Also per Cathy's advice, I kept her hair backswept to show off her
shoulders. This was surprisingly fun to put together and I may
come back to ideas like this later down the road. ^_^
