Batgirl DCnU Redesign by Jim Lee
I think it's okay, and I think that once I get to see it in the actual interior artwork instead of just covers and Jim Lee promo images, it'll start growing on me a lot more. However, certain aspects of the style of the costume redesigns are rubbing me the wrong way. I'm all for functional costumes, and I often like when costumes are drawn to look more like cloth and armor that is worn instead of just a second skin, but drawing more lines doesn't necessarily mean that it'll look better. I mean, look at this guy:
And in some cases, it doesn't exactly even make sense. It looks as if, when they were "redesigning" Hal Jordan's costume, they said, "I don't know... give him shoulder pads?" And then later, they just figured that Kyle, Guy and John's outfits were completely fine without more armored accents to them. It's just weird.
I like a bunch of the redesigned costumes. I think the Superboy costume (at least the one he's wearing in his solo series) and those of the rest of the Superman family are more or less okay, though I think they have more selling to do on that whole "Kryptonian ceremonial armor" thing, which I also think is a bit lacking in the color yellow. And I think that Wonder Woman and Green Arrow's costumes are pretty cool as well. But at the same time, I was also just beginning to really get used to Batman's new costume, which was already armored up enough (and I did really enjoy that glowing yellow bat emblem), so I have no idea why they felt the need to change it again.
But then again, Spider-Man can apparently have 3-4 new costumes in a matter of a couple months, so what the hell do I know.
