A New Era. A New Look. by Lightengale A New Era. A New Look. by Lightengale
It certainly doesn't hurt to look ones best when fighting against the tyranny and injustice of the world, hmm? Dazzler and her besties, Psylocke and Northstar certainly agree!

I love the idea of a star on Dazzler's chest in the main Marvel U but while trapped, erm, I mean still serving within the X-Men, I prefer without... That and she and Northstar would look even more like a duo.

Started as an experiment in freehand drawing in PS, turned into some Frankensteining before becoming a crazy sculpt-with-smudge kinda thing and ended up this. I wanted a sort of casual, model shot of them chilling on Utopia; Brochure ready. Kinda worked out.

I love this for quite a few reasons. Primarily the homage to each of their pasts. Secondly, at least to me, they are serving fierce realness in their postures. Finally, I just love this trio. Awesome work.

Thanks so much! I absolutely wanted to pay homage to their classic looks in a more modern take and I'm flattered you saw that as well as what they're serving up. ;) I wish more was being done with their friendship.

THIS IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!! Three of my favourite X-Men together in one piece AND in fabulous new costumes? Cha-ching! Hello amazing.

I really love Betsy's look. I love all the details on her boots and around the sleeves of her shirt. The puffy sleeves are a great nod to her old costume. There's definitely a playfulness to this look. I really love it and I would go so far as to say I wouldn't mind Betsy wearing it officially.

Dazzler's costume is fierce. How can you go wrong with lots of bling? I like the way you've modernized the disco look. Now it seems like an outfit Alison could wear and not be ashamed of. I especially like the armlets. Those things are cool. And I'm digging Ali with a ponytail.

And JP. He looks so cute! The hair is spot-on and I'm glad you kept the elfin ears (he isn't always drawn with them :(). I really like the design you've given him because it's definitely a little simpler and it's much more casual. It really works well for him. Of course, I LOOOOVE that his gloves don't have thumbs. It's just such a nice touch.

Great job on all three. Now, all we have to do is get Marvel to put them together on a team, put them in these outfits and we'll all have a gay ol' time!

I'm just now seeing your comment! Thank you - as always - for your fantastic feedback. I think I appreciate the detail in your responses as much as the praise. ;)

I would hate having to redesign costumes on assignment so I think being able to just have fun made these turn out so well. However, I definitely agree Dazz could be rockin' this. Also, I instantly love anyone who jumps on the ponytail bandwagon with me. Hehe.

Yeah, theses designs are perfect. If I had the body for it I would totally wear what NorthStar has on, does it come in Plus Size? Dazzlers costume is so cool, I LOVE that you managed to squeeze in the disco theme while making it modern! Psylocke's look is great as well, though I am a fan of the Psylocke with the red tattoo on her eye, I like her in this pic.

That's the beauty of unstable molecules... Costumes to fit any and all sizes! ;)

I appreciate the feedback and thank you for the compliments... I've done many Dazz costumes over the years but finally feel like this might be THE one for me.

I love how you've made the Psylocke costume completely of the asian Betsy vibe, but maintained her previous identity with the floaty sleeves. Very nice touch I think. :)
