With these new "Bitch Planet" leggings from Bombsheller, you too can now express your non-compliance to the world. The leggings manufacturer has teamed up with Matt Fraction and Kelly Sue DeConnick's Milkfed Criminal Masterminds Inc. in order to bring you the latest in comic book fashion.
The leggings feature a design by Valentine De Landro, who co-created the Image Comics series "Bitch Planet" with DeConnick. The symbol stands for "non-compliant," which -- in the not-so-distant future of "Bitch Planet's" world -- is a term applied to women who don't comply with its societal standards for women. Non-compliant women are sent to an off-planet prison for offenses as simple as rejecting commonly accepted beauty practices.
In an effort to make these leggings available for every fan, DeConnick and Bombsheller are running a beta test for sizes up to 6XL. "When Kelly Sue DeConnick asked to work with us on a design that would be available through 6XL, we were thrilled to get the chance to put our prototypes to the test," Bombsheller's website reads. "Compared to the rest of the fashion industry, Bombsheller is non compliant. We believe you should wear what you want, not what you’re told. Get your girl gang together and celebrate spandex for all bodies."
The leggings are available in two styles, with the standard logo and a floral design, for $79 a piece. They are now available online, and purchasers who will attend Rose City Comic Con will be able to pick theirs up at the event.
