Welcome to Comics THORsday! This week we are going to talk about comics, women, and fashion. Especially targetting Spider Gwen and Silk. As you know, there are more and more women not only reading comics but also creating them. Comics have been always a medium that reflects pop culture, but also where pop culture takes a look at itself and pushes for change. While it might seem an odd topic to touch, fashion in comics has been always there. However, it has been recently that female audiences have found their mirror. Comics are no longer just a place where to find characters to identify with, or cool Cosplay costumes, now fashion can be found on their pages as well.
Comics have been a boys arena for many years. But the irruption and increase of female readers has created a change to the pages. Pop culture is showing up itself into the pages of Spider Gwen and Silk while they are influencing designers to take geek fashion to the next level.
Spider Gwen has a cool representation of a female hero. Gwen has a well-designed custom that lets her figure seen and not seen at the same time. She has a hoodie, and colors are fresh and alluring. She is also a very relatable character for many women, and her style is one that many would like to wear around.
Brands like We Love Fine are making it possible for comics fashion to hit the streets. The tee is not alone, and now readers can enjoy really cute outfits wherever they go. (By the way, I have this tank top too!)
Spider Gwen hoodie is a really nice designed piece. It’s a superhero costume and geek fashion that can be used wherever we go. Geek girls can now show up their identities just like their superheroes do within the paper pages of the comics.
Granted, the fashion is adapted for the real world, but the possibility to be able to wear Spider Gwen and Silk’s costumes are something that many have dreamed of. (Or Loki’s, or the Avengers’). So, who is influencing who? Is the comic influencing pop culture, or is pop culture influencing the comics?
For what we can see on trends online, the influence goes both ways around: comics influence pop culture in the same measure as pop culture influence comics. That writers are designing better costumes for their superheroes is good news, since readers are changing as times change as well.
Comics are no longer a medium for boys. They are triggering geek fashion for geek men and geek women who are eager to show up their identities in public. In doing so, comics are becoming fashion trends themselves. Are you wearing the last Spider Gwen hoodie?
