New Batgirl Costume

Recommended Posts

I just had to share that today DC Comics announced a new costume for batgirl. 

New:

I think the new design is a downgrade from the practical, less sexualized 2014 redesign

The mask is the only part that could eb considered an improvement. But then, it's only because it's easier to wear a helmet.

Never thought I'd see an update on the Thrillkiller costume, but there it is.

This would be a great look for a Marvel character.

The 2014 set looked more combat ready, compared to the new sleek design.

The 2014 version was great:  more functional, more realistic, less sexualized, and easier to transition into a live-action look.  The 2014 design generated a *ton* of accolades and great press at the time; it was part of a welcome trend that included Marvel's redesign from Ms. Marvel in a one-piece french cut bikini with a sash to Captain Marvel in a far more practical, zip-up military-esque jumpsuit (and a sash).

(We can guess which version Brie Larson will wear in her upcoming movie)

 

Given the resurgence in books with female leads -- and a growing recognition of the buying power of the female comic book fan audience -- I'm surprised that DC went in this direction.
