TRDL 2011 Series No. 63 - Kitty Pryde

This piece was done for the 60’s Fashion theme for the TRDL Art Jam.

Ever since I saw this one roll into the contribution pot I was stoked to have the chance to draw for the jam. 60’s? Sure, there were a lot of period characters to draw, but I smelled a redesign coming on. In this case, it’s a Cryptohistorical Redesign, where I reimagining a contemporary character in a different time period. Kitty Pryde was always one of the perplexingly least fashionable characters in the Marvel U, despite intending to be the cipher for the reader. I mean, she went through costume change after costume change, and it only got worse and worse. Here, I tried to give her some of that mid-60’s mono-dress flair with the opaque tights and the stark contrasting blouse. As for Lockheed’s outfit, well you know it or you don’t.
