Reasonably Dressed Superheroines

0

Other than distracting evildoers, skimpy outfits just don't work well in combat. So, artist Michael Lee Lunsford has taken it upon himself to create costumes for "reasonably dressed" superheroines:

Point of this: An exercise in character design, attempting to clothe the heroines nearly all the way and not making them painted-on, while still keeping the look of their original costumes in some way. Hopefully keeping them looking as iconic as the originally were. Just showing what can be done with a costume breaking outside the barrier of the norm.

NOT the point of this: some moral code I’m trying to push on you

I like the concept, but it looks a bit timid to me. I think it's ridiculous the way some superhero women are drawn, but there is something quite intimidating about a woman fighting crime in barely anything at all. Fearless! At lease make the clothes look powerful.

I think there could be a happy medium between the cheesecake superhero look and this. The design is just kind of baggy and schleppy-looking to me (and I'm all for comfortable clothes.) I mean the pants on WW are awful (aside from the horrid color, I swear I can feel the 1960's-grade scratchy polyester from here!) And the tops? Kind of ugly. The whole look kind of reminds me of the "modesty-protecting" athletic gear designed for Muslim women -- heavy, functional, and just basically unflattering (not that they should be drool-inducing, but, no woman really loves looking frumpy.)

I like that a lot better. Don't get me wrong; I like scantily clad lasses, but something about cheesecake heroines and bulletproof nudity rub me the wrong way.
