Batgirl Cosplay - Change is coming again! by ozbattlechick Batgirl Cosplay - Change is coming again! by ozbattlechick

I’m taking a break from the photo story to talk about the upcoming change for Batgirl in October.

I didn’t think I was going to take to Babs getting out of the wheelchair and into her Batgirl costume but I did. The storylines got better and better. Reading about what DC is planning to do and seeing the new Batgirl costume, I really am not sure about the yellow Doctor Martens which I guess are more practical for crime fighting. Why doesn’t Babs just go out in a mask, leather jacket and pants? Do away with the cape, as in the real world, capes are pointless as explained in the Watchmen and the Incredibles.

What does everyone think?

The only change I'd make to the classic Yvonne Craig look would be to discard the cape (although I wouldn't be sorry to lose the hood and the silly red wig too, leaving her instead with boyishly short hair - Barbara Gordon-style - or tied back, and instead a purple eye-mask).

Umm...interesting points. I'll give her a chance too but I just don't want to see Batgirl being turned into title for kiddies :(

I'm a traditionalist, I like the old Batgirl (Babs) Thought it was cool they brought her back out of the wheel chair.  Not sure if I'll like this new one, but I'll give her a chance.

Well I think the cape can have a purpose along with a classic reason for having it. Like WhiteOwl said, that cape is a classic part of most of the Bat costumes. Batman, Batgirl, Robin, Batwoman all had them. Nightwing is the one exception but there Dick was stepping out to create his own identity. I don't think Batgirl would be Batgirl without her cape. 

Now they can always come up with reason to have her cape. I always liked the Batman Begins explanation that it becomes a glider aid. So no reason they can say Babs's cape provides protection from certain attacks and so forth. 

If Batgirl did give up her cape it would lose part of her iconic look. Not as bad as if Supergirl lost hers, but still Babs loses something.
