Wonder Women of Colour (Zachary Pryor earrings)

The Representation of all races, genders, sexualities and body types in comic books has made some big strides in the last few years, but there is certainly more work to be done. As a gay man I feel that the characters I should or could identify with are often gimmicky or relegated to the background. It is easy for me to make that leap and think of what it must be like for Latin, Asian, or African American men and women to see characters they love coming across as shallow stereotypes. I’m a white man, but I honestly get bored looking at white faces all the time across all media platforms, not just in my beloved comics. In that spirit I regularly honor one of my all time favorites, Storm on my etsy painted earrings page, but I went a step further by re-inventing some of DC Comics biggest heroes as powerful African, Asian, and Latin American women.

The original zp black Wonder Woman earrings

A favourite X-Man for many years now – Rogue. When I was in Junior High the X-Men lived in the Outback and I still consider those the best X-Men years. Their time there ended when they all (except Wolverine and Storm) escaped through the Siege Perilous. When Rogue returned the Reavers had taken over their home and she had to escape using by stealing Gateway’s powers. In doing so she became a gorgepus black woman and I was like, “please let her keep that look.” She did not. So, here she is, as a gorgeous black woman and in her Outback X-Men uniforms.

Another X-Woman who received a shocking (and permanent) makeover was Psylocke. Formally white British girl, now ridiculously sexy Ninja… irresistible 

Available on my page as Glitter Psylocke, or 

Psylocke through the years

Thanks for stopping by, and remember – I welcome special requests too!


Zachary Pryor Halloween Offerings

Here we have a quick share of the items in my 3 shops that celebrate the greatest Holiday during the greatest season. 

I just know we will see thousands of Wonder Women out there this year. I have been painting her for years and these two are my favorite, earrings with gold leaf and a painted cuff

One of my first creations, the Blythe doll inspired Medusa, perfect if the ancient Gorgon is on your mind for this holiday. PURCHASE HERE.

No Halloween post would be complete without giving a nod to Buffy Summers. I loved Buffy the Vampire Slayer the minute the show first aired and my obsession grew and grew. At the time it was airing it was the only show I watched. You can get the Buffy Mr. POINTY pair here and the Buffy and Angel pair here

Another Halloween favorite is the Bride of Frankenstein. I painted her likeness inspired by the classic film with a dark, rich green background, PURCHASE HERE

Feeling spooky animals instead? How about a royal blue black cat silhouette or an orange ombré bat silhouette

Not everyone knows of this gorgeous, dangerous vixen, but they should. This is Vampirella, the comic book anti-hero. Get her HERE.

Finally my etsy shop featuring gemstone, chain, and charm creations both new and upcycled has two gorgeous skull pieces in stock that would look great during this season, even while you aren’t in costume. Click to get the Glitter Skull Tassel earrings or the Rhinestone matte black stone necklace.
