The Refrigerator Monologues by Catherynne M. Valente – Superhero Lookbook
*this post includes affiliate links I have with Amazon*
Hello everyone! So today I am part of the blog tour for The Refrigerator Monologues* by Catherynne M. Valente and, for it, I created a superhero lookbook! Before I get into my lookbook, though, I thought I’d share the synopsis with you:
The Refrigerator Monologues is for anyone who ever got upset at the way women were treated in comic shows, movies or books.
The lives of six female superheroes and the girlfriends of superheroes. A ferocious riff on women in superhero comics
From the New York Times bestselling author Catherynne Valente comes a series of linked stories from the points of view of the wives and girlfriends of superheroes, female heroes, and anyone who’s ever been “refrigerated”: comic book women who are killed, raped, brainwashed, driven mad, disabled, or had their powers taken so that a male superhero’s storyline will progress.
In an entirely new and original superhero universe, Valente subversively explores these ideas and themes in the superhero genre, treating them with the same love, gravity, and humor as her fairy tales. After all, superheroes are our new fairy tales and these six women have their own stories to share.
Okay now for the lookbook! For it, I thought I’d choose three of my favorite female superheroes and create an outfit for them! Here we go……
red moto jacket
dark brown and white bag with lightning bolt keychain
black spike heels
