With the huge increase views/comments [mostly due to Kotaku
], I've finally decided to update my DeviantArt with more of my work and a proper introduction
As you've probably deduced, my name is Bethany, but I'm also known as Betty Felon [my moniker of Les Villainettes
and on Etsy
]. When I'm not working at my inconspicuous day job, I'm usually off on secret missions, most of which usually have to do with art/craft projects. While I've taken about 10 years of studio art classes, my primary creative realm is fashion and costume design. I've been sewing for about 7 years now, and every fashion creation and costume posted here is mostly handmade by me, unless otherwise noted. Likewise, all of AK47's costumes are stylized, modified, and/or created by me as well [oh, the benefits of being my partner-in-crime].
My biggest source of inspiration for costumes and fashion alike comes from comic books. I've been reading comics since I was little, and they've played a major role in my life, especially as a creative outlet. I run a comics fashion blog, She Looks Like The Wednesday Comics
, where I present the latest fashion tips from comic strips, and I try to document my daily outfits via Wardrobe Remix
, most of which end up being inspired by my favorite heroes/villains or from a new release of that week [and sometimes I pull from other aspects of pop culture... like idk pocket monsters or something].
I enjoy going to conventions as often as I can, with Boston Comic Con and Anime Boston being the most frequently attended. This year, AK47 and I will be making our trek across the nation to San Diego Comic Con
- we're both really psyched, as this will be our first trip to Nerd Mecca. Likewise, I will also be attending New York Comic Con
this October, which I'm also excited for since I've never been able to make it to NYCC over the past few years. With that said, I have a ton of costumes that I need to work on for both conventions [and along with other smaller events along the way]. Yayyy, conventions!
With that said, feel free to check out my gallery and introduce yourselves
