Fictionally Fashionable: Kamala Kahn/Ms. Marvel

c600x383

 

Obviously, I’m pretty much in love with Kamala Khan.  Seriously, she’s AMAZEBALLS.  So after taking a gander at Sara Pichelli’s gorgeous cover, I knew I had to recreate the look for Fictionally Fashionable. I also wanted to put another limit on myself: since Kamala is a poor teenager, this outfit needed to be affordable.  So every item you see above?  Sub $50.  (I know, right?!)

I wanted to keep this outfit as close to the original as possible, so I stuck with the skinny jeans and plain black tee that are in the original illustration.  The white kicks?  Kamala wears some like that when she’s in her street clothes in the comic.

Trying to integrate the classic Ms. Marvel/Carol Danvers lightning bolt emblem was a little tricker.  Since I was aiming for streetwear, I didn’t want to pick one of the specifically comic-themed shirts you can buy from online retailers like Superhero Stuff or MightyFine, though those are very cool:

So instead of the regular shirt, I decided to incorporate the lightning bolt through jewelry.  I super loved the earrings and the necklace together, and I tied the look together with a bold cuff and cool stacking rings.  I topped the outfit off with sassy cat-eye sunglasses in place of a superhero mask.  (Pro tip: superhero masks aren’t really all that fashion forward.  Sunglasses are!)

If you need to make the outfit a little fancier (or if you want to keep a little Kamala with you all week), you can add some funky nail art on top of everything else.  This design is from Kelsie’s Nail Files—you should check out her website for more cool pictures and designs.

Anyway, that’s it for this fictionally inspired outfit!  If you want to get any of the items I put together, you can find a full list on my Polyvore account.  If you decide to try out this outfit, be sure to share it in the comments!
