Fashion between the panels: The Women Of Marvel: Pt 3.

Hello everyone out there, as always it’s good to see you. I AM JMADDD STYLES and I would like to welcome you to my latest blog post. This is the third installment in an ongoing series. Fashion between the panels: The Women of Marvel: Pt 3. The fashionable inspirations for this blog post are Monica Rambeau ( Captain Marvel ) , Sue Storm ( The Invisible Woman ) and Mystique. I am going to take you on a fashionable journey between the panels , to come back out with new inspired looks , that have been inspired from each of these comic book heroines. So as always pull up a chair and stay awhile cause You are about to be styled by JMADDD. Now let’s get started right here with….

Monica Rambeau ( Captain Marvel)

To get this fashionable journey started , I’m going to get started with Monica Rambeau , or Captain Marvel. I did a previous blog post where I used Carol Danvers also Captain Marvel as the backdrop or inspiration for some newly inspired looks. For that version of Captain Marvel , I worked with the red and blue color ways to highlight the look that Carol Danvers has become famous for over the years. In that same blog post , I briefly touched on The Captain Marvel that is Monica Rambeau , the first black Captain Marvel . So I wanted to make sure to come back to this character , and expand a little more on drawing fashionable inspiration from her.

With each of these looks , I stuck with the classic ever popular black and white color scheme, that Monica Rambeau was best known for. Aside from this , black and white is always a good color combo to work with. But this is the original version of this comic book character , over the years, she has taken on a more modern look.

As you can see the color scheme is still the same , but now she adds in a trench coat and a slight change of shoe. So let’s see what kind of look I pulled from between the panels to capture the fashionable likeness of the new version of Monica Rambeau.

I still kept with the main staple of the look , being the black leather pants, then from there I added in a trench coat to the look and a black and white two toned body suit , and switched out the white boots and pumps for a black boot , creating a more active wear feel , capturing the fashionable likeness in a totally different way.

Drawing fashionable inspiration from Captain Marvel , I have just pulled three different looks from between the panels or in this case comic book panels. Now let’s move into the next fashionable likeness that I’m going to use for fashionable inspiration, and that is going to be ……

Sue Storm ( The Invisible Woman)

When it comes to styling looks that are fashionably inspired by a character like Sue Storm , the first thing you have to do is think along the lines of a monochromatic color scheme , and if that is the case , how to do this and still make the look pop is the real challenge. So how would that be done ? Let’s see.

As you can see the top look is the more monochromatic look , I went with a silk blouse or more less a silk dress shirt. The look is accented with a blue face watch , an ankle boot and a belt combination bag that is two toned royal blue and black to really set the look off. Monochromatic looks have really become popular over the last few years so this look keeps you on trend. The next look doesn’t give you the same monochromatic feel , it gives you different shades of blue that still blend together well to make a cohesive look, blending denim with a powder blue tailored dress pant. Finishing the look off with a suede ankle boot , a gold and blue bag , then accenting the look with a blue watch of a different shade trimmed in gold , bringing the entire look together. Then the final look is the same as the first , I just switched out the shoes to a royal blue pump giving the look a slightly different feel. These are the looks that are fashionably inspired from Sue Storm, The Invisible Woman. That brings us to our last subject for inspiration , in this third installment of The Women of Marvel series, Mystique.


If you really take a good look at this fan favorite super heroine, the comic version is in actuality already fashion forward. She wears a body con white dress , that takes on a leather appearance. Then she wears long elbow length white leather gloves and always has on white leather boots. She has been fashion forward for many years. But how can this look be translated to look fashionable outside of the comic panels ? Well let’s see.

To translate this look , I gave you three different looks that all use white leather . The first two looks are white leather dresses with a blue motorcycle jacket to put you in the mindset of the Mystique color scheme. Both looks are finished off with a white ankle boot that both remind you of the boots that she is so famously known for. Then the third look I gave you the white leather pants option , with a white or cream graphic t-shirt , giving you even more of a fashion forward rocker sheik look , that perfectly captures the fashionable likeness of Mystique. Then each look also includes jewelry accessories to make the looks pop just a little more.

Well there it is , once again we have come to the end of yet another blog post, I hope you have enjoyed reading it , just as much as I enjoyed presenting it. I AM JMADDD STYLES , and this has been Fashion between the panels: The Women of Marvel: Pt 3. Keep your eyes open for Pt 4 coming soon. That’s it for now , so until the next time…IM GONE…!!!..

Fashion between the panels: The Black Cat & Catwoman.

Fashion between the panels : Black Cat & Catwoman

Hello everyone out there , as always it’s good to see you. I AM JMADDD STYLES and welcome to my latest blog post , Fashion between the panels: The Blackcat & Catwoman. The reason that I decided to do a Fashion between the panels with these two characters is because they share so many similarities. Granted one is from the pages of Marvel comics ( Black Cat ) and the other is from the pages of Dc comics and has been around a lot longer (Catwoman ) their narratives are very similar almost one and the same. So by comparison I’m going to pull the fashion from between the panels for both of these iconic anti-heroes, and with that said let’s get started with…….

The Black Cat :

Much like Catwoman , The Black Cat Ware’s a black catsuit the difference is the white fur trim around the boots and the low cut collar . Other similarities that the the two characters share is they are both jewel thieves and truly most noticeable have a love hate on again off again relationship with a major iconic Super hero as well. When I see characters like this with so many similarities it’s like the comic book label decided they needed their own version of the same character that they could make work just like the original counterpart has for so many years.

Now that we have established all that let’s get back into the fashion , as I mentioned a little earlier , The Black Cat wears her own iconic version of a catsuit. With just a few differences from Catwoman , now to pull the fashion from this comic character that’s where you have to start . Unlike Catwoman her look doesn’t change or variate to much from the first time she appeared in the pages of Spider-Man.

Even though her look has not changed much over the years I still managed to put together two distinct on trend inspired looks that would still capture the fashionable likeness of this character.

Look number one captures the look perfectly, when putting this look together I wanted to , make sure that I even found a fashionable way to capture the fur that appears on the catsuit of The Black Cat . To do this I went with a leather jumpsuit and to go with it a leather jacket that is trimmed in a white Fur like material capturing the true essence and feel of The Black Cat . The next look is more of an inspired look , as in I still went with leather but to capture the look I stayed with the color scheme of black and white. This time I added in a biker jacket to switch up the look a little and went with more of a half boot as opposed to a thigh high boot to finish the look off for a slightly different feel appeal.

Now it’s time to get into our next iconic character…..

Catwoman :

Selena Kyle aka Catwoman was created many years before The Black Cat . She is truly the blue print of what become Marvel comics own version of the master jewel their anti-hero. Catwoman over the years has had an on again , off again love hate relationship with what is probably one of the most if not the most iconic superhero of all time The Bat of Gotham , the one and only Batman. The Catwoman character is a bit more diverse and well known than The Black Cat. Also interesting the look of the character has changed from time to time over the years as in the color of her catsuit and the accessories with it from the gloves down to the boots. So to capture the fashionable likeness of this iconic character I had to come with two looks that are distinctly different in color scheme and look . Over the years she has actually had more than two different looks but today I’m going to give you two inspired looks that are from her most iconic well known suits over the past few years.First the purple suit , the purple suit was accessorized with thigh high boots in grey and sometimes in a contrasting purple , the same for the gloves. To capture this inspired look I went with purple leather pants , a suede purple top , and stayed with purple gloves . The look is finished with a thigh high suede boot to capture the fashionable likeness of this character perfectly. The look had to be done in both suede and leather to perfectly capture the color scheme of this rendition of Catwoman.Now for the current look of Catwoman and the fashionable looks that I styled that are inspired from her current look. What you are about to see is the newer more now Salina Kyle with a short slick haircut and an more functional suit the biggest most noticeable difference is the completely monochromatic color scheme.For both inspired looks , I went with a leather jumpsuit in both cases to start the look off then branched out from there using different accessories to highlight and individualize each look , the second look is a little more theatrical yet fashionable as I put in the actual factual Catwoman head piece with the glasses , of course this is purely optional. Either way you look at it all three looks capture the true inspired fashionable likeness of Catwoman. Well there it is , once again we have reached the end of yet another blog post , The question is are you team The Black Cat or Catwoman , as always I LET YOU TELL IT. While you think about it , I AM JMADDD STYLES and this has been Fashion between the panels : The Black Cat & Catwoman. That’s it for now so until the next time IM GONE….!!!

Fashion between the panels: The Joker…

Hello everyone out there, as always it’s good to see you. I AM JMADDD STYLES and I would like to take this time out to welcome you to my latest blog post : Fashion between the panels: The Joker. Just incase you are not to familiar with this particular on going blog series , Fashion between the panels is when I take the frames of a comic book or timeless scenes and characters from a movie and break it down from a fashion perspective. In other words I help you find the fashionable inspiration between the panels and build you a complete image and look based around the characters in the book or movie. Seeing as how The Joker is coming back to the big screen, you know it was time for an all new Fashion between the panels . This time not only am I going to give you the fashionable breakdown of the latest Joker movie , im going to show you how the previous Jokers from the silver screen and television , were also fashionably inspiring as well , starting with the original Joker from the iconic 60’s Batman and Robin show.

More than likely you’ve probably never taken the time to realize that when you really look at The Joker he is in actuality very stylish and his color scheme is really on point. In this case even in the 60’s if you take a good look , you see a well tailored suit with gloves to match. The question is how does that or would that translate into a look that you could actually pull off and feel like you are over the top up on your style game.

I took the original Joker’s look and broke it down three ways. First and foremost keeping the original color inspiration and combination, of green and purple. I broke the look down to three frames just to give you every detail of the look. The look is styled keeping the feel of the actual iconic 60’s character. I made sure to keep the signature purple gloves and the vest , but to make the vest pop , I went with a high quality tweed for the vest or waist coat.

For many years Cesar Romero aside from the comic books , was the first and original picture that came to mind when you think or thought The Joker. That is until about the late 80’s or early 90’s when Batman was about to be reintroduced to audiences on the big screen. Then came Jack Nicholson’s rendition of the The Joker and suddenly the character had a whole new face that would be remembered for years to come. Nicholson’s Joker had an all new yet still comicbook acurate look , however this rendition of the character had an iconic wide brim hat.

To capture or style this look , I started the look with the wide brim hat. But instead of making it purple , the look is styled with a black version and matched it with the all new Saint Laurent dress boot. Of course I had to keep the signature purple suit , but this time no vest and I went with the orange shirt to capture the true essence of the Jack Nicholson Joker with the signature hat.

For many years Nicholson’s Joker seemed irreplaceable , that is until the character was being introduced again in the second installment of the newly rebooted Batman franchise . Enter Heath Ledger as the psychotic clown , just when you thought no one could top Nicholson’s or Romero’s version of the character . Ledger did just that , he added an all new look and even fresher take on The Joker ,

Heath Ledger’s version of The Joker, was more on the casual cool side but still fashionable none the less. To capture this look I went with a purple car coat , velvet pants , and to top the look off a green tweed vest and and a multi colored spread collar dress , to capture this stylishly inspired Joker look.

From there came Jarret Leto’s take on The Joker. In my opinion was kind of a lateral move on the character, neither forward or backwards, but still a different take on The Joker. This version was seen in The Suicide Squad movie. Leto’s Joker , was kind of like a modern gangster influenced by hiphop. But once again if you really looked at the characters style , the look was fashion forward.

I really tweaked this look a bit , in my opinion this total look would have made the short appearance of Leto’s Joker even more memorable. I captured the look and built the image based around his signature duster style coat , from there went with a pair of Ralph Lauren pants to expand on the look with a purple cap toe shoe and spread collar casual dress shirt , creating a look that screams Style and Joker.

Well The Joker is back, with a new movie soon to be released and a new actor taking over the mantle of the clown. Joaquin Phoenix is set and ready to hit you with his rendition of the iconic comic villain. He’s got another all new look but from what I can see this maybe able to compete with Ledger’s version of the villain. But notice the new Joker still has a fashion forward tailored look. Now let’s style you like the new Joker.

The new Joker has a total makeover, no longer with the purple and green. The new color combination is burgundy/red with a mustard colored waistcoat and a touch of green in the shirt. Well to style and capture this look , I went with a velvet suit in a deep wine or burgundy color. Added in the mustard wool waistcoat, I gav you two shirt options, for a more subtle look, the white spread collar shirt. For a more bold look traded in the green shirt for a raised print blue spread collar shirt. Topping the look off with a double monk strap dress boot. Once again capturing the fashionable essence of the new Joker.

So there it is , we once again have reached the fashionable end of the line for my latest blog post , time flies when your having fun , after all ( Why so serious ?? ) . I AM JMADDD STYLES and this has been Fashion between the panels: The Joker. That’s it for now , so until the next time… Im Gone…!!!
