The X-Ladies of ‘88, by John Allison. I love this! As John says: “Everything that followed sartorially on the X-Men books was studied and militaristic or spray painted naked ladies, but these costume designs show a very careful adherence to different mid-80s pop subcultures. Dazzler is a sort of post-disco creature, Rogue has the big hair of the Bangles, Psylocke was a sort of wafty English ballet-goth and Storm a “Voices Carry” style MTV punk!” This era of X-Men costume design by Marc Silvestri flows out of what John Romita Jr was doing during his tenure. Rachel Summers and Kitty Pryde both anticipated the style of ’00s American Apparel!
