I am bringing “Poll Position” out of semi-retirement to discuss this new Batgirl costume. What I want to know is weather you the HeroMachine community “Love”, “Hate”, or are just plain old “Meh…” to this design?
Here are my feelings on the redesign. While I think this is a nice looking costume and well designed with the exception of the combat boots which are just way to clunky looking for me, I do not feel this is a good fit for Batgirl. I just don’t think it works for a acrobatic, martial arts using, non-super powered crime fighter. The aforementioned boots give the outfit a sense of being weighted down and slowing especially in comparison to the sleeker look to the rest of the costume, and the leather jacket looks like it would restrict her movements, especially in the shoulder area making it difficult to fight in.
So in conclusion while I like the costume in general, on Batgirl I Hate it. So what are your opinions? Lets us know what you think by voting in the poll and by commenting below.
