Hey there! Welcome to Nerd It Up! This is a feature on the blog where I put together plus-size looks inspired by nerd culture. This week the inspiration comes from the comic book hero, Captain Marvel! She is currently my faaaavorite comic book character. If you're not familiar with Carol Danvers here, she's slated to get the first female-led Marvel movie title in 2018. She's basically a fiery, fist-first, smart-mouthed, sassy, completely awesome chick. Her powers include super strength, flight, and "the ability to shoot concussive energy bursts from her hands," according to Marvel's website. But even cooler than that is before she had any superpowers, Carol Danvers was already a Colonel in the Air Force and trained in hand-to-hand combat. My favorite quality of hers is her sassiness. She says what she thinks and she doesn't put up with garbage. I'm so excited for her movie to come out already!
Anyway, here are a few looks that I've put together that were inspired by Earth's Mightiest Hero, Captain Marvel!
