30 Days of DC:
Day 7 - Favorite Costume
Stephanie Brown’s Batgirl costume
Betcha all thought I would choose Dick’s fingerstripes, didn’t you? ;-)
Well, I do love that costume, but I have to say I love Steph’s Batgirl costume just a tiny bit more. It’s a perfect superhero costume in my eyes: simple, practical, but with enough detail to make the character stand out. The look is a throwback to the classic Batgirl costume, but the purple detailing is a nod to Steph’s past as Spoiler. It looks good, but it’s not overly sexualized in a way that doesn’t make sense, and it allows Steph to both move around easily and blend into the shadows when she needs to.
And, simply put, I like looking at it. The colors look great together, the costume suits Steph, it’s just a great look all around.
