Marvel want a peek inside Katie Sackhoff’s 2014 year planner. But why?
HA HA HA HA FLIES INTO THE SUN
DO WANT DO WANT
If she’s going to have to be available NEXT year, it’s probably not Captain Marvel, as much as I want it to be.
We’ve heard nothing about the movie, no director, no script, no producers, not even a premise or confirmation. There’s no way they’d be ready to shoot in 2014.
Possible cameo as Carol before a Captain Marvel movie is made?
DUDE don’t forget that Lee Pace is playing Ronan the Accuser, who is KREE, in GotG. If they’re planning on intro’ing Carol, that would be the PERFECT cameo situation.

IS THIS WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO FANGIRL? CAN A GUY ACTUALLY FANGIRL? I MAY BE FANGIRLING.

This is war now. And what do Avengers do in war? What do we do? - We… We win.
I did my first attempt at comic book shoes a few months ago, and of course had to go with Carol. I love them.
We have had a bunch of requests for a 2nd print run of our Captain Marvel Costume t-shirt recently. I am happy to say, they are now available for pre-order on our website.
The direct link is: http://OptimysticalStudios.com/Pre-Orders/
These shirts are fully dye-printed on both sides, and stand up to laundering quite well (I can now speak from personal experience on that). Because of the printing process there are some wrinkles where the dye does not flow. I tried to capture this in the pictures so you know exactly what you’re getting. Personally I don’t think it detracts, but I want to be upfront that it is there. Each one is dyed individually so the strength & location of wrinkles may vary (but it’s mostly under the arms).
This is a new thing. It is also a super cool thing. I have seen one of these (different design, same company) in photos, but not in person yet. That being said, I am super excited about the dress. It falls under the same printing process as the shirts so it will get the white wrinkles too, but hopefully very minimally like the shirt.
We are not marking the shirts or dresses up to make money on them. Because of that I have a big favor to ask. If you have a coupon code for our web shop, please don’t use it in conjunction with the shirt or dress.
The Time Frame:
Pre-Orders will be open for about 2 weeks. We will be closing pre-orders on August 8th. I’ll submit orders to the printer on August 9th. That means we should receive the order by August 30th. As soon as we get shirts & dresses in we will ship them out. Domestic shipping takes about 3 days, International takes 10 days or so. So with that time table people should have their orders by the beginning of September. That being said, the last time we ordered shirts we got them much faster than we were quoted, so maybe shirts before then end of September.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. And of course share these with your friends who are Captain Marvel fans. You don’t want them to miss out do you?
Welp, I have to be an adult and pay my rent/bills in a week, but after that…you will be mine, Captain Marvel tee.

Back Up for Pre-Order: Captain Marvel, Hawkeye, Iron Man & Black Widow charm pendants!
Now that we’re home and have glass on it’s way to us, we have re-opened pre-orders for the charm pendants that you all love so much.
Glass should be arriving on Thursday, which means that these should be ready to ship to their new homes by June 20th.
Pre-orders will be open until we start setting the glass. At which time we’ll just turn these into regular stock. When they become regular stock the price will go from $22 to $24 fyi.
How much do I want that Hawkeye pendant?
Um, must I quantify??
Reposting this because we got our glass in today. WooHoo!
Which also means we’re setting pendants.
If you want to get in on the pre-orders for the charm pendants at the $22 price you should put those orders in today. Tomorrow they become regular stock and the price goes up to $24.
BUT HOW DO I CHOOSE ONLY ONE
I want to answer ALL OF THEM!\
But that’s because I’m in love with all of the pretties we make and I hate choosing my favorite baby.
I have the Captain Marvel and Hawkeye ones and they’re seriously the best, guys.

STEVE AND CAROL BFFS FOR LIFE
Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel Hoodie project!
- Navy hoodie/shirt
- Fabric chalk
- Masking tape
- Soft fabric paint in red, yellow, and black (Tulip brand is great)
- Paint brushes
- Ruler (a clear plastic quilting ruler if you can)
Though I took a picture of sponge brushes, AVOID AVOID AVOID. You can get inexpensive paintbrushes at most any store in the craft/sewing section. The stiffer ones will be better for painting large areas, while the thinner, softer bristled brushes are better for detailing. If you can, get the 4oz bottles of paint rather than the 1oz ones shown here; you’ll need at least 2oz of yellow and 2+oz of red.
- First things first! The star. You can print out an eight-pointed star (this one looks most like Carol’s) and resize it, or you can be dumb like I was and math it out. (Don’t be like me.) Either way, use your fabric chalk to trace the star onto the front center of the hoodie/shirt. I suggest trying it on at this point to ensure it sits where you want it to. You can easily brush off the fabric chalk with stiff-bristled brush or even your fingers if you need to retrace.
- Once you have the star where/how you want it, go ahead and paint it yellow. Be careful with the edges, but don’t worry if you go out of the lines. We’ll be covering up any mistakes with black detailing later.
- When the star is dry, figure out where to position the yellow stripe.Your quilting ruler will be very helpful here! I made mine 1 ½ half inches wide, but if your star is a different size, you will want to enlarge or reduce that so that it fits neatly between the second & third points and the seventh & eighth points. Use your masking tape to block out the yellow stripe to get a crisp edge. The point on the sleeve should be in the center; same with the back. I can’t give you an angle, but again, a quilting ruler will be very helpful.
- Paint the stripe yellow. You will probably need two coats. Leave a small gap (less than ¼ inch) between the star and the yellow.
- Use masking tape to protect the yellow stripe and star from the red paint, and paint the shoulders, front and back. You will again, need two coats.
- The last step is the black detailing. This was actually the most difficult for me. I made the black lines ¼ inch, which is, helpfully, marked all over my quilting ruler. (This is not a coincidence! ^_^) Using the masking tape, again, I blocked out where the black paint should go: outlining the star, outlining the yellow stripe, and in the center of the yellow stripe. You should paint outside the yellow, which will keep the size correct. At this point, you will probably need to do some touch-ups with a small brush, because the masking tape (at least mine) doesn’t stick as well to the dried paint as it does to bare fabric. This is okay!
- Be the star you were always meant to be!
Make sure you let it dry for at least 72 hours before you wash it. If you wash it inside out, the paint shouldn’t come off, pretty much ever. I’ve used the Tulip paint to decorate work shirts that I wasn’t careful washing, and it sticks like glue. It will probably crack, especially the larger areas, but so does silk-screening. :P
Up next: Hawkguy!
ETA: Here’s a photo of the back (plus, bonus butt and Peter Parker & Mary Jane, my houseplants)!
Totally making one of these. Great instructions!
Yep, doing this.
