Saturday Morning Cereal's Dressing the Marvel Universe with Ruth E Carter and Elisabeth Vastola! Take some time this week to remember your original happy hour: Saturday mornings as a kid, waking up at dawn, jumping on the couch with a bowl of chocolate cereal, turning on the ‘toons, tuning out the outside world & working your way into a sugar hangover before noon. This week Grim, Marke, Johnny Heck & Holy Hobbits slip into the wonderful world of costume design from your favorite entries into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
For cinephiles, Ruth E. Carter is a known tour de force in costume designing making Academy Award nominated works for Spike Lee Joints. For the rest of the world, Ruth E Carter's Wakanda Afrofuturistic costume designs on the box office beast that is Black Panther, have created a career-defining overnight success! After a recent WSJ Expose and recent BOLD headlines on Stan Lee's passing, praising Stan Lee's Civil Rights work "He Was a ‘Trailblazer’", we bring you a primetime replay of our WonderCon roundtable conversation with Ruth E where talk about her inspirations from Stan Lee and the best of pop-culture to create a world of one. If that's not enough to keep your tights on, we also sat down with the force behind the costume design of Darvedevil & Jessica Jones on Netflix, Elisabeth Vastola!
