I've noticed that whenever an outfit has a slight resemblance to a fictional character June and I get SO excited. So instead of accidentally channeling a character, I decided I would intentionally draw inspiration from a fictional persona. The Night Gwen Stacy Died marked a change to the history of comic books since it dealt with a super dark event and showed that superheroes can't always save the day. The outfit Gwen wore in that issue has become pretty infamous in the comic and cosplay communities. It's so easily recognizable that when shots of Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy were leaked before The Amazing Spider-Man 2 we instantly knew that Gwen's movie fate wasn't looking' too good.
Mixing green and purple is normally a color combo I would never think to wear....because I'm not a huge fan of wearing green or purple individually, let alone together. Also, it's Spring in Georgia, which means it's already 80 degrees so a coat and boots were not going to make an appearance in my outfit. I always have fun getting dressed in the morning, but I think there was an added level of fun this day knowing that I was secretly playing dress-up. My intention was never to cosplay or directly copy this outfit, but instead to take inspiration and make it my own from pieces in my wardrobe. I won't lie--I did wish that I had a lab coat with my very own Oscorp name tag. Also, don't let the red hair fool you...I'm totally a Gwen and not a MJ. ;)
