Marvel Monday: Avengers Assemble
I wasn’t going to do this outfit post because I’ll admit I feel alone in my obsession with Marvel here. I'm introducing a new series, every Monday I'll post something I love via Marvel. I wanted to incorporate it into Gadchick, but the more I think about it, this is what I love and this blog shares what I love. I grew up reading all the Bronze Age of Comics. As I got older, I never really met anyone that was into what I was into. I was too embarrassed and just like any awkward junior high kid, I wanted to be “cool”, had a full identity crisis and abandoned everything I love, including comics. Years and years later, I began picking up my comics again (now they call them graphic novels) and with my recent Marvel Unlimited account, and am now I’m lucky to have friends with the same “nerdy” interests as me, and the internet connects me with people who don’t make me feel so crazy for being so attached to fictional characters. I haven’t dived into cosplay, and I think that’s a territory I will never conquer, but I discovered Her Universe--an online retailer devoted to women’s clothing with “geeky” fashion in mind without looking like a costume. I picked up the Avengers Assemble peter pan collar. It’s subtle enough to know it’s an Avengers shirt if you’re a fan, but not loud enough like a cape (no offense to people who wear capes on the daily like The Caped Lawyer and Thor). There are more geeky things I love here.
