Batgirl Redesign by toekneearrows Batgirl Redesign by toekneearrows
Here's my submission to Project Rooftop's contest to redesign Batgirl.  I opted for Barbara under the mask, with some type of Wayne-tech implants that have healed her spine and a special suit with exoskeleton-like enhancements for support and strength.  Part of me wanted to up the "tech" aspect of the suit, but I wanted to keep it more subtle and lightweight.

I really like her mask.
I wonder about all those straps and belts, though. They make for a nice pattern in her suit's design but are they there for a reason?
Cheers.

Thanks for the compliment on the mask- I was worried it might come across as too "Wolverine".  As for the straps, I originally was thinking of them as a type of climbing harness, but as I kept going I started thinking of them as a kind of structural support.  I went with Barbara Gordon under the mask, who had been paralyzed in the comic.  If I had it to do over again, I would have pushed this idea even further and made it less of a support system and more of a stream-lined exoskeleton type suit.  But eh, I was pretty happy overall with how it turned out.

Hadn't thought about her having been paralyzed and therefore needing that support system. Good one.
Cheers.

Thanks!  Yeah, I was pretty happy with how this one turned out.  It's sir by the way- though I appreciate that you didn't assume!
