nOir jewelry and DC Comics have joined forces together to bring you jewels from Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman. These are not  your Cracker Jack box trinkets, but jewels made of gold and Cubic Zirconia. I’m a big fan of CZ, by the way. It’s like champagne looks for beer prices. Anywho, my fave is naturally the Catwoman claws. I have three rings similar to in that I wear when I’m venturing out into unchartered, sketchy territories such as my beauty shop in South Central LA.  The Gotham ring is pretty rad, too. nOir also has a  gold Brooklyn Bridge ring on their site. I like all of them, except when are they going to make  jewelry inspired by the James Bond girls? That I would die over!

M.A.C artist Karin Stone developed this rad makeup to make you look like a real comic book girl from  those paintings by Roy Lichtenstein. If you’re gonna do this, make sure the red dots are in order or you’ll look like you have chicken pox. It’s totally a fine line. Also, you will probably be a geek magnet, like beyond geek. You’ll probably have a line of geeks and nerds following you everywhere. Bring your taser, just in case.  This reminds me of that exhibition at The Met, Superheroes. I wrote an article on it back in 2007. Read it here, if you care. I think that yellow- blonde hair is next on my roster after I wear out this red. What do you think?

Whenever, I visit NYC , I make sure I stop by Girl Props in Soho. With its zebra pattern facade, It’s  hard to miss on West Broadway and Prince Street. Here are a few of my favorite picks. I think I got into the comic book look after I went to Comic-Con in San Diego this past summer , not to mention the exhibit at The Met , ‘Superheroes- Fashion & Fantasy’. I wrote an article on it here. For an avid synth-pop fan like myself, the keyboard is perfect! I dig the tape , too… I used to make mixed tape all the time. You could even hear myself stopping the tape on the tape. I recorded music from everywhere, my friends’ tapes, the radio, off MTV. Then the CD came and fuped it all up. But in a way, the CD was cool because you could skip to your favorite song and rewind in one button. But, then the ipod came and that was a stroke of Genius! I don’t even listen to the radio or MTV anymore- it’s like I have MY world of music without having to wait through a god awful song to get to a better one! I like that.
