‘Batgirl Begins Again’ with Project: Rooftop costume redesigns

It boggles my mind that it’s been more than eight years since cartoonist Dean Trippe and current ROBOT 6 contributor Chris Arrant launched Project: Rooftop, a website dedicated to superhero costume redesigns, but indeed it has. They were inspired by a “Draw Batgirl” meme that made the rounds in 2006, and to mark eight years they returned to the subject with “Batgirl Begins Again,” to typically stellar results.

They’ve posted their top three entries, as selected by a panel of the site’s regular judges plus special guests; you’ll recognize the names of at least two of the chosen artists — Chris Samnee and Joe Quinones — and will likely be searching for more work by the third, Elizabeth Beals.

Check out Samnee’s Batgirl redesign, and visit Project: Rooftop for me. The site promises to show off the runners-up next week.

God, how bad were the losing entries?

Oh dear, not keen on this one, especially the Bat-Bodice and Arse-Signal.

Where are the seams and padding everywhere? Can’t have a DC character without seams and padding. And the seams should be in the shape of a bat!
