SuicideGirls Team with Bubble Punch and Meltdown to Transform American Apparel Fashion Basics Into Striking Cosplay Outfits For SG’s Comic-Con Crew

Suicide Girls love getting dressed up almost as much as they like taking their clothes off. San Diego’s monster Comic-Con event is therefore a major highlight on their calendar each year, since it’s an excuse to play dress up.

This year they’re cooking up an extra-special Comic Con cosplay wardrobe, with a little help from clothing manufacturer and retailer American Apparel, pop-culture event planners Bubble Punch, and fave Sunset Strip geek emporium, Meltdown Comics.

Comic chic chicks Chubby Bunny and Yume Ninja of Bubble Punch will be designing a series of three different sexy cosplay themed outfits for SG ladies to wear while they man their Comic-Con booth. Each of the outfits will be made using basics available at your local American Apparel store. We’ll also be producing “How To” videos with the help of  Meltdown so you can recreate the costumes the Suicide Girls will be wearing to Comic Con at home.

The three “How to” videos – one for each SG cosplay costume – will be posted on Suicide Girls’ Facebook page in June. The costumes will then be debuted live at a special Pre-Comic Con party to be held at Meltdown Comics on July 7th. Follow @SuicideGirls on Twitter for up to the minute news, updates, and photos.

Avengers and streetwear fanatics assemble! To kick off the fisticuffs and festivities for Marvel’s universe-shaking crossover event Avengers vs. X-Men, Marvel has teamed up with sultans of streetwear New Era to produce limited edition caps. Midtown Comics in New York City will have 18 East Coast Avengers caps and our very own Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles will have 18 West Coast Avengers caps in a classic Dodger blue colorway. With only 36 hats in existence – 18 of each colorway – these are the fashion equivalent of Infinity Gems. Luckily, we were able to snag a sneak peek at the hero-worthy headwear before they go on sale this Tuesday at 8PM at Meltdown’s Avengers VS X-Men launch event with special guest Ed Brubaker. You can believe us when we say that these will fetch a pretty penny, True Believers, and are a must-have for any Marvel diehard.

On Tuesday, April 3rd, Marvel will be releasing the first issue of their epic crossover, Avengers Vs. X-Men. Meltdown Comics will celebrate the release with an event featuring writer Ed Brubaker. Brubaker will be at Meltdown to hang out, chat, and sign copies of Issue #1 for customers. There will also be eighteen limited edition West Coast Avengers NEW ERA CAPS you can win via our AvX raffle, exclusive to Meltdown Comics!

Avengers Vs. X-Men
Ed Brubaker is the prolific author of Marvel’s current Captain America series and its spinoff, Winter Soldier.
