When the new X-men lineup was announced I, of course, thought it was amazing and refreshing and about damn time.  It wasn’t until a friend of mine brought the new team up again that the idea for another X-fashion developed.  It really was a “duh” moment for me - they’re ripe for a fashion piece, and not just because they’re women but because they are some of THE biggest female names of the X-men.  So I went for it.  Wanted something a little more dynamic than X-fashions of the past.  My main thought going in was more pants, less dresses and frippery.  Of course there’s still bling and heels - you can’t take away all the fun - but I wanted fashion that was a bit more street, more real, a little more badass. 
Rachel is grunge.  Love her jacket, not so happy with her shirt.  
Psylocke is NYC fashionista tomboy.  Dip dyed hair (so trendy) and a butterfly print blouse.
I’m really happy with Kitty’s dragon t-shirt and bad ass heels.  Had to get a shoe in there somewhere, people.
Storm is my 80s executive realness.  Her earring is fashioned after the one Willi Ninja bought (he has the receipt) in Paris is Burning.
My southern belle is in a loud print and hose - she’s the only one in a dress.  I wanted her in printed leggings but she was already such a patterned mess I decided against it.
And Jubes is just all over the place.  Bikini and hot pants and a bedazzled jacket.
The original will be going up in the store as soon as tomorrow.  Prints as well - in TWO sizes :)  Hope you guys like it, let me know what you think!
