Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
7. Kirby (and Bruce Timm’s) Barda pixie boots
This delicate, black, leather footwear is the creation of Kirby, who depicted Barda wearing this outfit when she was out of uniform. Bruce Timm’s take on the costume emphasize the delicacy of the boots even more and they provide a contrast to her muscular physique. They’re almost ballet slippers and the sharp little wings on the front, cinched together by a white circle, give them that dynamic, otherworldly look. While this might seem like an odd choice to wear when out of costume, Barda is practically invulnerable so protecting her feet for everyday tasks probably isn’t a factor.
