Fashion Meets Comics: Smallville's Supergirl Inspired Workout Clothes

Something I found interesting about Smallville, was that before many of the future superheroes (Clark Kent, Bart Allen, Kara Kent and Arthur Curry) wore their signature costumes they wore clothes in their signature colors. Well, that was due to at the time DC Comics didn't want any of the characters wearing their costumes, so the show had to get a little creative.

Aside from the comics, Smallville's Supergirl is one of my favorite versions of the character (second being the one from the Superman, Justice League and Justice League Unlimited animated series). She was confident, independent, fearless, intelligent, powerful and a tad bit reckless and not to mention at first she was a little too trusting with the wrong people (i.e. Lex Luthor, those beauty pageant girls, etc.).

Despite having superpowers, I feel like this version of Kara Kent would still workout and train which is why I was inspired to create a fitness look for her. I kept this look to the primary colors she was nearly always wearing by pairing a red tank top with blue yoga pants.

Weekend Films: Tomb Raider and Love, Simon

Both trailers look so amazing, I don't know which movie I want to see first. The action adventure (Tomb Raider) or the romantic dramedy (Love, Simon).

I'm usually not a big fan of reboots but I never like the other Tomb Raider movies they were so bad. It was a combination of terrible plot and terrible acting that made those movie really unwatchable. I always wished the franchise would get a second chance which is why I can't wait to see this movie.

Even though I didn't get a chance to read the book Love, Simon was based on (Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli) I still plan on seeing the movie. It looks really interesting.

Comic Book Wednesday: March 14th Picks

Okay, this is a minor issue but it's annoying that Tim Drake is called Red Robin in the DC Rebirth since he's wearing his Robin costume. Why didn't he get a new Red Robin costume?

I have a new book on my list: Ghostbusters Crossing Over. There are a few Ghostbusters comic book characters that I'm not familiar with. I'm hoping the writing will include information about some of the characters to make it easier to understand who some of them are.

DVD Tuesday: Justice League, LEGO Flash, Ferdinand, The Shape of Water and Call Me By Your Name

Hey movie fans, there are so many movies out today and at the top of my list are Justice League and LEGO Flash which I will be definitely picking up sometime this week. I'll have to get Ferdinand, The Shape of Water and Call Me By Your Name at another time but I still want to see them.

Aside from LEGO Flash (which is direct to DVD/Blu-ray/Digital), I didn't see any of the other movies in the theatre. I never got around to seeing Justice League meanwhile Ferdinand had the disadvantage of being released in theaters the same day as Star Wars: The Last Jedi. I've heard so much about The Shape of Water and Call Me By Your Name that now I'm interested in seeing them.

Are there any movies or TV shows that you're planning on getting this week?

Justice League


Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
