If you haven’t seen them already, artist Michael Lee has been getting some attention for his redesigns of iconic female superheroes. The focus of these new designs is on retaining the iconic nature of the costumes while making them practical – and modest (a sort of opposite tactic to The Hawkeye Initiative). The full set is up on DC Women Kicking Ass, along with some pithy aesthetic commentary, or check out Lee’s blog here.
Here is Lee’s explanation for the redesigns.
The best thing about this series is that it really shows the way that these costumes can still be iconic without being hideously impractical and revealing (see the reboot of Captain Marvel – link in the DC Women Kicking Ass post). A couple of them miss the aesthetic mark a little, but there are some excellent ideas in there which still remain totally faithful to the original design elements. It’s really made me want to have a go at redesigning some iconic characters!
What do you think about the new designs? Whose costume would you redesign if you could?
