Special Poll Position: The Batgirl Redesign

Batgirl Costume Tests

http://www.mtv.com/news/1864359/batgirl-exclusive-dc-comics/

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.

Weilyn – HeroMachine remembers one of its BEST!!

Today I write to honor the passing  of a member of the HeroMachine Moderation staff, Weilyn. I was saddened today to learn of her passing by a close friend of hers, our very own Stulte who created the image above in memorial to her! When HammerKnight due to health reasons had to step down as moderator for a time leaving the running of this place solely on my shoulders Weilyn was the first person I reached out to and invited to join the Moderation Team here at HeroMachine because I saw how helpful and friendly she was and KNEW she would be a wonderful moderator.

I remember how honored and excited she was to be a moderator and how eager she was to be able to give back to our community and help you all with all things HeroMachine! We private messages back and forth for several days as she grilled me on the things she needed to know to be an effective moderator and on how to posts to the blog and together with Her, Jr, and djuby I felt we had one of the finest group of Mods anywhere on the net!

I don’t know any details of her passing but what I can say is the Weilyn will be missed dearly by many here on this site, and to her friends and family that many be reading this you have my most heart felt condolences! Rest In Peace My Friend!

( Below after the Jump you will find a few of Weilyn’s HeroMachine Creations that I have selected as well as a Link to her Gallery on the forum )

EDIT: Added more of Weilyn’s art below as suggested by Jr.
