Inspired By Marvel’s Ladies #2: Jessica JonesPosted: December 9, 2015
Here’s the second look in my Marvel-themed week, inspired by Jessica Jones. The character has a very distinct and simple style – leather jacket, old jeans, and combat boots. I translated that into my own moto jacket, old jeans, and Chelsea boots. In the earlier episodes she also wears a scarf, which I added here. Of course I had to add my own touch (the brooch) but that’s why these outfits are only “inspired by” and not costume.
As for the show, like I said, it’s awesome. It is as tense as Daredevil (another Marvel’s Netflix show), though in a different way – Daredevil has this sense of impending doom about it, and you’re on the edge of your seat waiting for it to explode, whereas with Jessica Jones, it is more like a sense of desperation. The characters are so damaged and the odds against them are so huge that you don’t think they can succeed, but you want them to succeed so badly. Also, it is one of the most (if not the most) accurate depictions of an abusive relationship and its ripple effect that I’ve ever seen. Just… go watch it, OK?
