DC Women Kicking Ass

Thoughts, pictures, reviews and other stuff about the women in comics who kick ass. This is a feminist site. Deal with it.
"... just a dreadful little site that just basically compiles lists." - poster/DC Comics forum
"... provides a much-needed voice that is not often heard on traditional comic sites." - Wired's Geek Dad
... she's pretty amazingly ignorant of comics outside of the Batverse and some recent Wonder Woman, and seems pretty clueless about the way the industry works. That and she doesn't write that well at all." anonymous poster, Dreamwidth
" ... a phenomenal blog that's always up to date with female superhero news ..." -Nerdbastards.com

What If Superheroes Dressed like Their Old Timey Halloween Costumes

Today’s Superhero costumes come pretty close to channeling the costumes worn in comics and movies (for the most part - the women’s and girls costumes are a mixed bag of authentic, sexed up and pinkified.)

But it wasn’t always that way. Last century when kids wanted to dress as their favorite superheroes your choice was 1) home made 2) store bought by the Ben Cooper company.

Here’s an ad showing of one season’s set.

But what if instead of little kids the costumes were worn by the actual Superheroes. Artist Pops Gustav shows us in a series of pieces including these of Batman and Wonder Woman.

Here is a vintage Ben Cooper Batman Costume (which can be yours now on eBay)

Wait is that the Caped Crusader?

And here is a vintage Wonder Woman (also on eBay)

And here is Wonder Woman wearing it.

See Wonder Woman did wear pants before Jim Lee redesigned her costume.

If you wonder just how popular the Lynda Carter show made Wonder Woman here’s some evidence. Thirty three years ago Ben Cooper saw her at the level of Spider-Man and Batman when it came to promoting Halloween Costumes.

The Many Faces of DC Women: Halloween Mask Edition

There was a time when if you wanted to be your favorite DC female superhero for Halloween you had to wear an uncomfortable plastic mask. Through the years the manufacturer (mostly Ben Cooper) changed the mold for that plastic mask and gave the character a slightly different look. Let’s take a look.

And, of course, we’ll start with Batgirl.

The first make looks like she’s just seen something horrible or those burritos she’s so fond of are hitting her lower GI. The next one is a happy Babs, with the wide cut mouth we’d see in animation. That last one? Blowing a kiss? I got nothing.
