Comic Book Clothing

Comic book fabric made into cool indie designed clothing and accessories of late:

'Totally Insaney' Comic Book top, $25 made by morosemelonhead

Word balloon tote bag made by HeroFashions

Comic book fashion looks great on the right person, and cool for kids. I have started to make Christmas presents this year out of things I find in op shops, and had an idea to customise a denim jacket for my friends six year old boy.

This jacket I purchased from eBay, which arrived in excellent condition, it hardly looks worn at all (phew, you never know when you buy second hand clothes online!). I didn't expect to find any comic book fabric second hand, but what I did find, is this comic t-shirt originally from Movieworld on the Gold Coast, for $4 in Salvos Mordialloc - perfect!

Plain denim jacket from eBay

+ Movieworld t-shirt from Salvos

I cut up the t-shirt, used some green bias strip from my sewing kit as a border to the comic book image, and stitched all of it onto the back of the jacket.

I only had yellow, green and turquoise blue bias strips, and thought green matched best, what do you think readers? Is the green border too much?

If you were a six year old boy, would you think this is cool?! I'm hoping the answer is yes...

GREAT FOR THE KIDS! I reckon my Husbie (who isn't a six year old boy) would even love this!

Awesome! I can't wait to see what Finn's tastes will be like when he's old enough to care about what he's wearing :)

Love it. Right now I'm making matching comic coats for my two dogs! Similar to the tote fabric. Which I also love!

Nena Nadine - comic coats for dogs? cool! I will have a look at your blog.

Thanks everyone for your feedback with this one, I appreciate it

Hi Erica Louise
I agree that you don't need to be a 6 year old boy to love this. My husband would too!

I know 2 "men", aged 18 and 19 who would love this jacket especially if it had any kind of Manga cartoon on the back. I think it's just so cool.

I reckon that jacket looks fab! I love the print from the tee, and the green border goes really well.
