For ladies who want a superhero-inspired look, but aren't into cosplay, Looking MARVELous offers a fashion-forward middle ground. These outfit ideas let you channel your favorite super-person, whether you're headed for a convention or out on the town.

Looking MARVELous collects women's fashion inspirations based on dozens of Marvel heroes and villains, male and female alike, from the Avengers to the Runaways. Each outfit links to the site's Polyvore page, which tells you can purchase the individual items. It's a cool idea, but dressing like a superhero is expensive. Soon we'll need the Marvel look for less.
