The comic book character pictured here was made famous by Roy Lichtenstein in the 1960s when he rose to fame during the pop art revolution at the time. Using the Ben-Day dot effect which mimicked the industrial printers of the time, Lichtenstein’s comic book paintings looked like they were created with machines but in truth they were entirely hand painted by Lichtenstein, who attributed the idea to his son challenging him that he could not draw as well as the comic book he was reading. The comic book girl here is a full body costume as she even went so far as to apply the printer dot effect to her arms and match her whole outfit to fit the character. It’s always great to have a reference photo and this costume truly does match a real one that Lichtenstein did in real life. Note the clever use of props and even the polka dot top and skirt combination. Add a speech bubble to your head so you don’t have to carry it around. The essence of this Lichtenstein costume is in the bold lines and dot effect. It’s a very unique look that will definitely get you a lot of looks from the crowd as they try to identify why you look so cool and so familiar at the same time. If you are into pop art and want to pay homage to Roy Lichtenstein, then consider this comic book costume.
