From Bat Girl to Hit Girl, we dig tough broads: caped heroines who swoop in to save the day inspire us to be bigger and better in our real lives.
Since this Saturday is Free Comic Book Day, a marvel-ous holiday that exists to spread the joy of comic book reading to everyone, we’re dressing the part and donning some superhero-worthy capes.
Take the two picks above: This sleek, white Sass & Bide cape would be perfect on the icy shoulders of Emma Frost, while this zigzag Christian Siriano capelet makes our hearts beat faster than a speeding bullet.
Ready to power up? Steel your alter ego and slip on one of these spring capes! And then check out your local comic book shop to see if they are participating in Free Comic Book Day.
