The past few months I've been working on incorporating new interests with old. That is, showing my love of comic books/supporting a fandom while still looking a bit vintage. I've been crafting a knitting and sewing project, one for Superman, and one for Supernatural, so if you're a fan of either you'll want to keep your eyes on my blog!
I just couldn't pass up this shirt last weekend, it's a little boys Superman t-shirt from 1978. Yesterday I made a circle skirt from some nice heavy denim I picked up at an estate sale for next to nothing, and I think they paired together quite well! Though the belt is the cherry on top ;)
It's funny wearing a shirt with such a recognizable symbol on it. A woman jogging passed me and said "looking good Supergirl!" and people (of all ages) would stop and compliment. It's a different attention from wearing vintage, I feel like much of the time people find full vintage outfits somewhat odd or intimidating, but something like this just makes people smile or start fun conversations. I mean, everyone know's who Superman is. Just something I observed, a different basis for interacting with strangers. It seemed more inclusive and began two sided conversations instead of the usual "You look like and old movie." "Thank you."
