I wish this was the new costume DC is giving Babs and not something you could get at the GAP.
SuprBoy35 Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2014
Way cool TDK armor for Babs!  The detailing is amazing!
Holy shit, that looks awesome! I've always had a thing again Babs' old nylon suit, so I Love the armoured, more practical New 52 suit... Which was done 3 years AFTER this 0_0

You, sir, just drew the best live-action Batgirl costume :)

I just realized that Barbara Gordon couldn't be Batgirl in the Nolan continuity.
James Gordon has a son, not a daughter.
But we still have Cassandra and Stephanie, and hell, Robin was none of the known Robins anyway so what the hell.
ganon2 Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2012
Gordon had two children, so she could still show up in the future.

So this is how she'd look if Christopher Nolan would make a 4th Batman movie.
Exellent job!
Skirosa Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Please, no. The last thing Babs needs is to be tainted by Nolan's terrible Batman films.

Why anyone actually liked Begins and The Dark Knight, I'll never know.
E-Ocasio Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2012   Artist
Nolan's Batman films were based on the most dramatic stories made by DC comics over the last few decades. His approach to the character is a realistic one, and not aimed at little boys, as Batman is probably one of the few if not the only credible superhero that could exist in our world. Henceforth his "children" Robin and Batgirl fall under such category.

Aside from the mediocre version by director Joel Shumasschel and Alicia Silverstone, Batgirl deserves a new and better live action representation.
Skirosa Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Based off of? No. He completely destroyed the continuity.
The only thing Nolan got right was Bruce's obsession with being in control. Characters were changed, and only for the sake of making them seem 'grittier', when these characters dark enough to begin with. It's not a 'realistic' approach. Bruce has never been a realistic character, and no matter how hard someone tries, he never will be. This is coming from a diehard comic book reader and fan. But hell, I knew I'd hate Nolan's films from the moment I heard Bale's 'Batman voice'. I felt as if my ears were going to bleed upon hearing it the first time.

Don't bring them into this. That adaptation was designed to be campy. Those movies in general, were designed to be campy. Just as the Adam West series was, or as Batman: The Brave and the Bold was.

Nolan has changed characters within the Batman mythos in a way that leaves a sour taste in my mouth. That's my opinion, it's not changing. Get over it. Babs deserves another shot in live actions, yes, but not by Nolan's hands. I'd rather we get a Birds of Prey series than seeing her in A Nolan film.

I agree that Nolan destroyed a lot of characters and took more liberties than he should have. However, he still made them into damn good movies, despite the unnecessary changes.
E-Ocasio Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2012   Artist
I'm not going to waste time arguing with you. In case you haven't noticed the bottomline is movie studios do these movies to make money.

Everyone invloved with these projects will change the characters and storylines to accomodate their own vision of what they see fit. Such vision will not always resonate well with the comic books fans, but they're not the only ones who buy movie tickets.
But given the campy treatment of Joel Shummacher and its disaster at the box office, also worth mentioning the Catwoman fiasco with actress Halle Berry, the studio became slightly apprehensive in allowing other Batman related live features.

Is quite possible, depending on the characters' available rights that other Batman movie projects many or not be dome. Maybe future ones will be more in accordance with your tastes.
ganon2 Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2012
Wow, not even my friend that doesn't like the Nolan films hates them this vehemently. Yes, Nolan changed a lot of things. The fact of the matter is, you cannot argue continuity in this because it's obviously a different universe. Every interpretation of the Batman has its own take on it, and while there are things about Nolan's movies that I don't like(bat-suit, the tumbler, Bale's voice, and extreme lack of the "World's Greatest Detective), they are still just as valid as any other
E-Ocasio Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2012   Artist
I agree.
I very much would like to see WB bring back Robin and later Batgirl in a live version, but not as campy and silly as they were done before.

Dude! this is totally cool. Tell me this is in a comic book? If it isn't it should be. Nice attention to detail. Redheads rule!!! : D
a1984niceguy Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
great mod excellent execution
- the only negative is that the mask looks like it was cut and pasted on
doesnt look naturual on the face with this style coloring nor is the design as pertinet to element as
the first one this should be just as practical as the primary or secondary bat helmets moveable those wide eyelets are easy spots for a bullet to pierce.
again great body , suit , the face/helmet is the only part that could use a lil tweaking
