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?
everone got his own style for costumes
even me when i do model
do the suit the way you like
no one can stop you
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.
