Batgirl Redesign by quin-ones Batgirl Redesign by quin-ones

Above is my entry for Project: Rooftop’s recent “Batgirl Begins Again” costume redesign contest, celebrating the sites eight-year anniversary.

Today they announced their “Top 3 Entries” for the contest, and I’m happy to say I find myself as one of them. Paired with two stellar designs by the incredible Chris Samnee and Elizabeth Beals, I’m pleased as punch.

Please do click on through to their site to see all three designs as well as scoring and comments from the P:R panel of judges.…

Speaking of which, I tried to address their very valid point about Barbara’s cape, doing a quick fix where I extended the fabric up over her shoulder and neck, adding a zipper, so it’d be less likely to fall off.

Brett White (of Matt and Brett Love Comics) said “this is a design that I could easily see on a dozen+ cosplayers…” and I so hope he’s right! That’d be awesome.

Let me know if you do!

I have always been a fan of the deCarlo conceit that Barbara doesn't really have easily-identified red hair; the Batgirl cowl includes a wig. Nice to see the call-back here.

You know what I love? Her mask. Thank god for this pic, because to me, it really addresses the problem with masks & hair. Whenever a female character has a mask on, for some reason it always covers their heads, yet still leaves plenty of hair at the…, & I've always HATED that. It just looks ridiculous. I always think you should either have the character wear a cowl, or if it has to cover her whole head, just have it cover her whole head, hair included. Doing it halfway just doesn't do it for me. I think this does a perfect jobof balancing that. She has hair, but she still has the classic bat ears at the same time. Frankly, I wish more more people would take that approach in the designs of these masks, but oh well. You know, this outfit actually reminds me an awful lot of Cassandra Cain! I never really cared for the batgirl character, but Cassandra Cain was always my favourite(Stephanie Brown is probably a close second, because how funny she was):)

This is absolutely amazing and I couldn't be happier that your version was one of the top 3 entries. As usual, stellar work. I'd love to read this character's adventures.

Really clever design. Not sure I see "Batgirl" here but it makes an impression.

Really cool!  It's a little retro, and nicely less latexy than the current batgirl.
