I asked for an assist with this incarnation of the DC 2099 contest by contacting the imaginative Comic Viner The Dark Huntress. She came up with a suggestion I think is great and relevant to DC.

BATGIRL. 2099. Barbara Gordon's incarnation as BATGIRL.

Batgirl by Marcio Takara
Batgirl by Ty Romsa
Batgirl #1 cover - Adam Hughes

Deadline will be September 10th, 2011@ Midnight Central Standard Time USA.

Have fun and any medium accepted.

EDIT: To avoid any problems, please don't use Barbara's incarnation as Oracle, avoid using Cassandra Cain's Batgirl costume. Just Barbara Gordon as Batgirl, please. Again, please have fun!

I'll throw my hat into this ring.

@Decept-O: haha, yea I do like this one. Although I don't totally get the using Barbara or Cassandra thing, I figure your saying Batgirl 2099 for the most part right?

Unless your wanting Barbara 78 years from now, actually being batgirl. Neither person would likely be the one kickin it then. (although a grand-daughter with the same name would explain it - or a 'proxy' android she invented)

I'm not really familiar with most of the other characters other than Barbara so I wouldn't even know if I was 'going there' with an idea. So if there is a rule, what should one actually be avoiding? Are we making Barbara 2099 or Batgirl 2099? What exactly would be considered rejectable?

I know with my current schedule I won't have any more time than to stab at this once so it's best to figure this out before I start ;)

@The Dark Huntress: No problemo says Decept-O.@tonis: Simply avoid using Cassandra Cain's Batgirl costume. It is significantly different than the classic Batgirl one. That is the main thing here. Its Dark Huntress' choice.

#7 Edited by Decept-O (7274 posts) - - Show Bio

@tonis:. I am saying Barbara Gordon that version as Batgirl as the base idea. Yes, anything off her, granddaughter, what have you, its just the costume idea with her red hair. Cassandra has a different costume. EDIT: Batgirl 2099. Not the Cassandra Cain version.

@Decept-O: I've never heard of this person before...I love this style of art...it's very similar to Sean "Cheeks" Galloway's work....deviantart here I come!!!

@danhimself: Have to admit I don't recall his name either its just the images uploaded with the captions and the respective names of the artists. I didn't want to remove the names this time because all these images are beautiful. Yeah I think I will have to do the same thing!

ok, I got the avoid a certain costume and shy towards another.

red hair a requirement? cause if I do Barbara actually in there it aint gonna be red no more (and I think it could be still possible that she's out there even then) :)

I don't mean to sound like the stick in the mud but let's establish what criteria would get 'rejected' cause we don't need to repeat past incidents. The jist I got is we're looking for a Batgirl 2099 with a Barbara'ish tinge to her. If there is something that's an actual 'rule' let's hear it before anyone submits a picture cause I gotta say afterwards blows donkey balls.

#14 Posted by Decept-O (7274 posts) - - Show Bio

@tonis: Red hair not a requirement. OK. Dark Huntress asked to use Barbara Gordon as Batgirl. She was Batgirl then Oracle and will now appear as Batgirl again with DC's revamp. Please avoid using Oracle. Please avoid using Cassandra Cain's costume. Avoid using the recent "Tron" version of Batgirl as recently seen if possible. Just work off the "classic" Batgirl costume, that's the main thing.

What would get rejected mainly is a Batgirl with Cassandra's costume design. Any medium accepted. Hoping this is OK.

@tonis: Tonis, they're asking for a 2099 based on Barbara Gordon's Batgirl.

So this is like if she quits being the Commissioner and becomes Batgirl again? 
 
 
 

#18 Edited by Decept-O (7274 posts) - - Show Bio

@fodigg: No, all that is being asked is to do a 2099 version of Batgirl. The 2099 contest is about "futurizing" the look of a DC character. Not asking to have Barbara Gordon as being elderly. The goal is to "2099" her costume design and if anyone wants to write a story using Barbara Gordon, that is the idea here. Its her costume and not anyone else, like Cassandra Cain.

JUST BATGIRL. I must not have been clear enough. Sorry.

If anyone has any further questions, please PM me or ask a Moderator.

#24 Posted by CaptainCockblock (3672 posts) - - Show Bio

And I know, my drawing looks a little more like Cassandra Cain, but the Barbara Gordon side starts to come out in the color scheme.

hehe, well with the initial origin idea I've been having I think it's 'doable' in a freaky futuristic way :)

Hoping the power cooperates this weekend with this hurricane and I can do this before heading out next week, actually itching to try this idea out.

holy crap the ideas are coming in fast and furious, that's some serious awesome sauce for the first 24 hours peeps. We got much BG love here :)

@tonis: yeah... i prolly should read all the comments before i posted haha. i aint trying to ruffle no feathers. i'll just do another one. when's yours due man?
#32 Posted by Decept-O (7274 posts) - - Show Bio

ARTISTS: The idea here is to use Barbara Gordon's Batgirl guise. Dark Huntress isn't asking to show her elderly. This is being taken too literal. The 2099 contest is about "futurizing" a character and/or costume. You don't have to be literal nor anything else and make her elderly. You don't have to come up with a story, its just the concept, the image of Batgirl in a futuristic guise!

Subsequently I have asked Mods to help with this one and when it goes to voting. Looks my effort to do something fun and a bit different isn't receiving a good reception. I really thought I was doing something relatively simple on Dark Huntress' behalf.

Will be off the site for awhile to cool off due to many reasons and the efforts of some have worked. Congratulations.

@Decept-O: huh? breathe man. This is a great idea and there's already 4 kick ass ideas. What's the problem at this point?

actually dude, that's pretty damn close to my initial idea too, I don't know why you'd worry about anything, that's a freaking brilliant idea to conceptualize as a future BG.

@tonis: either way partner. it bothers the op of the thread, i ain't bout to spit in his house. the drawing's a little messier than i intended to begin with.

Workin' on colors.

Here is my Batgirl 2099. 

 She wears hi-tech armour on her arms which contain an arsenal of offensive and defensive weapons and equipment which replaces her utility belt. The energy blades on the gauntlets can be used for different purposes, by setting them to different intensities; on low settings they can stun an opponent, high settings can cut through solid steel.

Barbara "Hershey" Gordon Grayson 
aka BatGirl 2099 
 
Daughter of Dick Grayson and Barbara Gordon, Hershey as her parents call her, is a beauty queen, model and all-girl girl! She is playful, seductive, a-bit clumsy and super strong (she once taken out twenty-one gorillas in rampage single-handedly without her usual weapons!)   
 
She actually took in the cape as a joke and even made fun of creating her costume (skirt, exposed abs and fishnet thights) but sticking to her mom's red and black theme and a mask, almost similar to her dad but changed the design to resemble the bat, ode to her favorite Great Uncle Bruce Wayne. She is akin in using a bob laced with a variety of tricks but the shocker is always her favorite feature. 
 
Hershey is still questioning if she wants to be a full-time vigilante hero or just be her beautiful and fabulous self.
