I've always been a hardcore X-men lover, ever since I watched the animated TV series back in the early 90s. I'm drawn not only to the mutant plight of human acceptance vs superiority, but also the complex and continuity-heavy relationships among the characters. I always get a kick whenever I can recognize references to decades-old events or mini factoids.
To pay homage to the bright and bold color combinations of my favorite mutants, I stuck to a very simple color scheme for this outfit. I brought out this dress, which I think looks like a girl version of a super scientist speed suit, ala Rusty Venture. Then I applied a bright red lippie, because all superheroines wear bright red lips, right?
