I have to say, some of these redesigns are not so impressive. While there is an element of non-practicality to a lot of these costumes, some don’t bother me nearly as much as it bothered this artist. While I like #7’s redesign, She-Hulk doesn’t have a bad costume in the first place. The main issue with her is that she’s never allowed to be unattractive when hulked out. Also, every superhero shows every bit of anatomy they have, that’s hardly restricted to the ladies! Now I’ll admit, I’m not super familiar with Scarlet Witch, but she’s always struck me as a character where her sexuality and sex appeal play a major role in her character. Not every character is going to need a “practical” outfit, and surely some and magic users can get those tank tops to stay up by themselves! Let’s not forget that Emma Frost would be wearing the skimpiest costume she could find. Not every heroine is going to wear the same type of costume. Some SHOULD be skimpy. The other problem is that these images as a whole really lack glamour. Wonder woman can look FANTASTIC in practical clothes, but you don’t see it here. http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20111021011309/marvel_dc/images/thumb/c/c5/Wonder_Woman_0302.jpg/452px-Wonder_Woman_0302.jpg http://www.orrenmerton.com/site/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/wonder-woman-no.-601-alex-garner-deviantart-dc-comics-redesign-fanboys-costume-new.jpg http://www.thecomicbooknerd.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/newwwcostume.jpg
Practical and gorgeous! Also, watch the no capes rule. While I love Edna Mode as much as the next girl, capes actually serve a purpose in comic art. Capes are commonly used to show flight! Not the most practical accessory for fighting crime, but they do serve a solid purpose and are not just there to make the character look hot.
