Welcome to the Legion!

Hey Legion! This week I got to check out some of the new DC Bombshells line from Hot Topic. The new clothing line was just launched and as you guys know, I’m a sucker for the Bombshells! (Check in tomorrow for some news on that front.) The line includes a Wonder Woman top and shorts (very much inspired by the DC Bombshells statue), a Batwoman dress and cap, a Harley Quinn bomber jacket and a Poison Ivy dress.

I got to check out three pieces, starting with the Wonder Woman shirt. The fabric is fantastic and heavy enough to lie smoothly over those bra straps. It comes down far enough that you won’t be forever hiking it up and the tie stays tied. Plus, it looks awesome! I wore it to shoot Most Craved this week and I was stopped no less than 7 times in 15 minutes by people asking where I got it! (Took some pics of myself in the clothes so you can see what it looks like on real people.)

Next up is the Batwoman dress. Same strong material so you won’t be worried about lines, and long enough to give a good swing (get it?) and you don’t have to be 14 to wear it. The material won’t wrinkle, which I know because I packed it in a suitcase and it came out after many, many hours in perfect shape. The pic is a little foreshortened because it’s shot from the top, but you can see the length. Also, the sleeves on this and the Wonder Woman shirt are long enough to make your arms look good. I hate cap sleeves with the fire of a thousand suns. No one looks good in those!

Finally, I got to check out the Harley Quinn bomber jacket, which I am absolutely in love with. It’s comfortable, it looks amazing and guys, you can move your arms! My biggest pet peeve with jackets, especially short ones, is that the arms are always so tight you feel like a kid in a snowsuit. This one is great!
