This past month I have gone X-Men crazy. I have always liked the idea of X-Men but was too nervous and confused as to where to start reading. I dived in head first with Joss Whedon's Astonishing X-Men and it was love at first read. Kitty Pryde stood out to me as she used her powers to protect people and not fight.
What I Wore:
Kitty Pryde Shirt: Impact Comics
Xavier Institute Jacket: All Star Comics Melbourne
Comic Book Leggings: Living Dead Clothing
Beast Hair Bow: Nerd Burger Jewellery
Rainbow Sneakers: Thrifted
I have since gone on to read the new series of X-Men 92' as well as Uncanny X-Men by Matt Fraction (Which was horrible), X-Men by Brian Wood (Loved the relationship between Jubilee and Wolverine) and this week I am reading All New X-Men by Brian Michael Bendis. I am loving the time jumping and the heavy focus on Beast in the first book. He is another of my favourite X-Men.
I decided I wanted to give beast the love he deserves so late one night I got my trusty hot glue gun out and made this big blue hairbow using felt and a damaged X-Men comic my friend gave me. I am really happy with how it turned out but I think I going to add some glitter and maybe make another one using blue fur.
I can not believe it took me to nearly 30 years old to get into X-Men. I never saw the cartoon as a kid so Liam and I are having so much fun watching it all.
Are you a fan of X-Men if so what comic did you enjoy reading the most? Do you have a favourite X-Men team member?
