What if superheroines lived amongst us today? Would they dress like we do? Artist Elizabeth Beals from Atlanta, Georgia, premiered her “Hipster DC Girls” series at HeroesCon earlier this month; subtly reflective of today’s fashion trends (at least, that’s what I think, but what do I know about fashion?). All 10 drawings are available for sale at Society6 starting from $15 as prints and stretched canvases.

Do you see the resemblance?

    These are great! Have you been watching Arrow on the CW? It's based on the DC Green Arrow comics. They have Laurel Lance of course, although she's not Black Canary yet, played by the lovely Katie Cassidy. Pic:

    Then there's Felicity Smoak, a sort of retooled version of a DC character, played by Emily Bett Rickards. She definitely rocks the nerdy hipster look like the above drawings. Pic: Of course she's a "Hollywood Nerd" because when she's not all geeked up she looks like this: :P

    Wonder Woman looks like she has baggy shorts on! Catwoman looks tough in all black.

    i must say they do not look like strong superheroines in my eyes. More like someone waiting for help

    Amusing - of the bunch Catwoman looks so natural it's almost funny ;-)

    How the heck do I 'make use of' this? Is there an RSS feed to which I can subscribe that doesn't include inane things I can't 'make use of', like superhero flags and geeky dresses?

    If you guys are suddenly trying to be iO9 and Jezebel, maybe you should go all-out and start a site network, instead of polluting a great site with useless junk.

      It's called comic relief. If you're so uptight you can't look at couple of cartoons, go to engadget or TomsHardware, or better yet slashdot. Everybody is uptight over at slashdot.

        Thanks dragonmouth. We're rethinking our Geeky Fun section, and we'll be posting them up here, on the main site. As a result, you might see one, as you so aptly put it, comic relief post a day. They will not be exactly the same as the GF we used to publish, but as I said, we're working on it. If you'd like to comment on the general direction, please feel free.

      Well, until there's word on official policy, I present a useful article from way-back:

      Hm just because the site is called MakeUseOf doesn't mean that you have to take it literally. We're dedicated to finding useful stuff as well as cool things on the Internet. I assume it's safe to say that not every article we publish is relevant to you: Linux, games, Android, Windows Phone -- you can't be using every platform, can you? Anyways, just like how you skip through those articles, I would suggest skipping this one, if it doesn't interest you so much. If you read our site through an RSS feed, well that makes it easier -- simply scroll past.

        Wow, Jackson - are some of your subscribers uptight or what?

        Keep the funnies coming - personally, I 'make use of' them to break up the many hours I spend webmastering for a charity - and believe me there's not a lot of fun to be had there!

        Love the site, the emails, the funnies, the truly useful bits - even the comps I don't win!

          Thanks, Mike. Appreciate the support! Keep participating in the competitions, you'll never know when you'll win!

      FekketCantenel, just admit you had a bad day.

      Those comic-like stuffs comes in as an intention of breaking the monotony out of serious stuffs. And MakeUseOf does it in a clever way.

      So, again, if you can't even stand a glare on some drawings made for get a bit of fresh and new air, unsubscribe from here and as others said, focus your interest on those uptight sites.

      Do yourself a favor.

        Fellas, while I truly respect your speaking out and defending MakeUseOf (and hugely appreciate it!), we should cut FekketCantenel a break. He has every right to voice his opinion too.

          And we have a right to express our opinions about his opinion. /grin/
