I hate this ache in my heart that I get whenever I leave home, even if it’s only for a little while. The first night away is always the toughest.
Batgirl #35 - Babs’ OOTD No. 1 and OOTD No. 2
Here are some fashion illustrations inspired by what Babs was rocking in our first issue of Batgirl! <3 I cant name where these IRL items are specifically (legal stuff!) BUT you can at least check out how her fashions translate from the comic page to IRL and try to track it down yourself! :)
Babs’ Street Style : Tomboy!
Lots of people asked about what our approach for Babs’ street style is for this book. For right now, its very tomboy/comfy/cute. Babs’ is dealing with a lot in grad school and fighting crime in her off hours so we figured she would be not the biggest fashionista. She would most definitely go for comfy cute before shiny and pink. She never rocks a lot of make or curls her hair before shes goes out the door. BUT Babs’ has got the 5 min makeup routine down and has a hand full of cute go-to hair styles that require minimal effort and can be achieved while running out the door to class!
Hopefully this is a fun look at the thought process that goes into dressing Babs :)

We love what you’re doing. You’ve covered a lot already, in such a short amount of time. What would you say is your favourite era of architecture? Or which city’s architecture are you most inspired by?
I honestly have a hard time pin pointing what my favourite “era” or architecture would be. At risk of sounding too cliche, I really have fallen in love with the huge variety I have witnessed from neighbourhood to neighbourhood, city to city. I would say in hugely general terms, and as a non-expert in architecture, that I am a big fan of a lot of the architecture from the early 20th century. It all is so different as you travel, and I find it oozes the hope presumably had by many of the architects for what they believed to be possible heading into the modern era. I personally feel like we just don’t have enough of that optimism anymore.
It is really hard for me to choose which city I’ve been most inspired by, architecturally speaking. If pressed, I would say Barcelona and the Modernista (or Catalan Modernism I think is the other name) architecture which is prevalent in Eixample. The use of space, light, geometry, the environment, and ultimately the long term planning put into those buildings is nothing short of astounding. Not to mention all of the references found all over the work of those architects to nature, and other architecture that came before it. They are absolutely masterpieces.
A big thank you to the lovely folks over at ThisIsWander.com for getting in touch and doing a little feature on the project! I am honoured you thought of my little project for your website!
