Oh yes it's ladies night and the feeling's right
Oh yes it's ladies night, oh what a night, oh what a night!
Oh yes it's ladies night and the feeling's right
Oh yes it's ladies night, oh what a night

Girls, y'all got one
A night that's special everywhere
From New York to Hollywood
It's ladies night and girl the feeling's good

Ahem, sorry, flashbacks to the music of my youth...

Rhiannon Owens (Click to go to her DeviantArt account) is an artist whose work I've enjoyed looking at in the past, and she has been doing some amazing work on sketchcards for Marvel. The following examples I found by casually browsing through e-bay...

Click to embiggen!

An assortment of Lady X-Men (And Lockheed, the only male in any of these images)

The 1980's X-Ladies

(I don't care that it was basically a leotard, I loved the design of Rachel's Phoenix outfit)

Some... later in the 1980's X-Ladies

Never warmed to Psylocke's armoured look, though I appreciate that as it was shortly after Doug was shot dead, she might have felt it a good idea for a mutant whose power was non-physical)

The Ladies of Excalibur

Yay! She included Cerise!

Classic 1970's Lady Avengers line up

The many names and faces of Carol Danvers' Ms Marvel, Binary, Warbird AND Captain Marvel

I don't recall Storm ever being the Phoenix host, but I should imagine it's happened... like being on of the Four Horsemen of Apocalypse every other mutant seems to have been one at some point or another

Some Marvel ladies of colour; Black Panther, Captain Marvel/Photon/Pulsar, Misty Knight, Storm, Tempo and Frenzy.

And finally one, of the most creative uses of negative space I've seen in a while, Jean as the White Phoenix!

And also, an artist whose work is new to me, a watercolour artist who has a rather sophisticated fashion sense to boot is Kevin Wada

Designinger Women

Other girls play helpless and coy
Mooning over this or that boy
Other girls feel hopeless and trapped
But me? I've learned to adapt

I'm a designing woman
I've got what it takes
I'm a designing woman
I make my own breaks
I'm a designing woman, designing woman
And I've got designs on you

Ahhh The Misfits, kicking arse in brightly coloured hair YEARS before the Spice Girls!

From the relevant tumblr post

When the new X-men lineup was announced I, of course, thought it was amazing and refreshing and about damn time. It wasn’t until a friend of mine brought the new team up again that the idea for another X-fashion developed. It really was a “duh” moment for me - they’re ripe for a fashion piece, and not just because they’re women but because they are some of THE biggest female names of the X-men. So I went for it. Wanted something a little more dynamic than X-fashions of the past. My main thought going in was more pants, less dresses and frippery. Of course there’s still bling and heels - you can’t take away all the fun - but I wanted fashion that was a bit more street, more real, a little more badass.
Rachel is grunge. Love her jacket, not so happy with her shirt.
Psylocke is NYC fashionista tomboy. Dip dyed hair (so trendy) and a butterfly print blouse.
I’m really happy with Kitty’s dragon t-shirt and bad ass heels. Had to get a shoe in there somewhere, people.
Storm is my 80s executive realness. Her earring is fashioned after the one Willi Ninja bought (he has the receipt) in Paris is Burning.
My southern belle is in a loud print and hose - she’s the only one in a dress. I wanted her in printed leggings but she was already such a patterned mess I decided against it.
And Jubes is just all over the place. Bikini and hot pants and a bedazzled jacket.

Storm in a suit looks DAMNED nice...

Some formalwear poses for the X-Ladies...

And to finish off, a VERY reimagined Sailor Moon (Okay, there's a bloke in there... but it's only Tuxedo Kamen... does he count?)

Hope you enjoyed!

I may be in the minority here, but I miss Kitty's blue Shadowcat constume from the 80's. I have a feeling it could work in the modern day if you lost the poofy sleeve. I mean she generally just wears a variation of the generic X-Men blue and golds/black and golds nowadays.

She should at least wear something other than the yellow and black, I think.

And yay for remembering Cerise!
