Tired of Costume?

#1 Posted by EmmaGrace (1024 posts) - - Show Bio

Okay, so I love Emma. But I'm getting a little tired of the SAME costume. It changes a little between a corset and shorts maybe, but the basic design hasn't changed in forever. Anyone else want to see her in something brand new?

You mean changes between pants/trousers and shorts/panties, right?
 
Generally it seems different artists occasionally use different costumes.
 
Dodson drew her with the white version of the Dark X-Men costume recently while most others stick to the pants/corset/cape variation of the original AXM design introduced around UXM 500/AXM 25, sometimes lately with shorts (see Accuna) instead of pants.
 
In Generation Hope and in the recent Wolverine and Jubilee mini she appeared with different kinds of civilian clothes (including fur jacket!).
 
More variation could be fun, but overall this is better than most other characters get I believe. So don't go expecting too much. Characters should and will have a recognizable design, and the costume is a BIG part of that.

True, very true. But I still wouldn't mind shaking things up a bit.

I dig almost all of Emma's duds.

I liked her costume from New X-Men (the Kyle/Yost run NOT the Morrison run) and her costume in Astonishing (the Whedon run)

I would like to see her in the New X-Men one with long pants and heels. Personally... :)

I really like her X-Treme X-Men look, minus the trench coat.

TBH i thing that post schism all the x-men should have a costume change especially storm and emma who seem to have had the same costume or a slight variant of it for ages also maybe Psylocke's should change

Emma has a pretty rotating costume. There are loads of other characters that are always wearing the same thing and much more in need of one.

I'd love seeing this without the trechcoat, and it's hard to tell but those better be some heels.

lol I'm not really sure....and I'm not really sure how much she wore the suit in New X-men either....I kind of just started rereading the series so if I find some better views of the suit then I'll be sure to post them

@danhimself
Well yes, with heels it's a great costume. The pants are a bit army like though.. Maybe clean it up a bit.

i hate her stripper prostitute level costume
 
since she is a respected member and a great character she deserves a better costume

Maybe she and Hercules should exchange costumes....  Hmmm?  I think it could work!!!  Hercules would look incredibly funny and Emma would.....be Emma...

She's being hot in clothes, not out of clothes. And the zipper comes down if she needs to show a little skin.

I like her Gen X costumes.

@PrinceIMC: Good point...
 
You know, it reminds me of a line from the old t.v. show MASH... Frank is trying to compliment Margaret and how she looks and says something like, "It doesn't matter to me what you wear.  Why, you'd look good in nothing at all!"

Old Man Wolverine

but maybe just a little more touched up, the neck part is bugging me a little. other than that, i think this is quite lovely.

Yeah, actually Emma always has some great costumes, unlike a few other X-women.  She's a spiffy dresser.   I don't think there's been one I haven't like of hers.

@Ashra: I've liked all her outfits so far, I just think they need shake it up a bit.

Like keep the color, but change the design?
#37 Posted by EmmaGrace (1024 posts) - - Show Bio
@Ashra: Exactly, away from the overused cape and either shorts or pants, corset or tube-top thing. Anyways I'm off, I'll respond tomorrow.

I like her costume but Emma doesn't seem like the kind of woman that would wear the same thing day in day out (i know its comics and they all need an iconic costume). I would prefer it if they kept the general theme of the outfit (white, revealing etc) but make variations on it and alternate. So she'll wear a slightly different costume each time while keeping it recognizable.

I liked her 1st Generation X costume, actually. I guess it wasn't skimpy enough for most artists.

@PhoenixoftheTides: Haha I guess not. It looks good for a teacher but not an X-Man. IMO

Emma is one of my favorite characters but I do think she could use a costume a little less 'whorish'  in appearance. I know this is a comic but there is the theory that less is more. I am not saying she should go back to her covered up Gen X days
but I do think the artists have become somewhat lazy and should come up with something different for her. I mean Rogue is depicted as sexy without having it all hang out, I am sure they could come up with something like that for Emma.
