Batgirl Redesign by DanielHeard Batgirl Redesign by DanielHeard
My Batgirl for Project: Rooftop's Anniversary Batgirl contest.
It had to be Barbara Gordon, because it just did. I looked at it from a post Oracle POV and made data gathering and analysis part of her outfit. She’s accompanied by two O.R.A.C.L.E drones that feed multi spectrum video and meta data to her VR helmet. 
The helmet is inspired by Mayor Adam West’s brilliant cowl, the super sneakers by Jeremy x Scott Adidas, and since it’s a bat character I did a version of my patented bat-poncho.

I love all of it except the nose thing from the Adam West style. I never understood their choices on that mask. I mean they gave him eyebrow lines and that nose thing... I can't stretch my imagination far enough to conceive of what logic train they were following there but it didn't work for me... 

I really like the rest of your design in spite of that but out of curiosity... since you are a fan of the old show look, maybe you could explain to me in a way that clicks.. why?

I dig many things of this outfit. Actually, the only things I kinda dislike are the nose and the shoes (More than anything, the shape. The color palette is okay). Everything else is perfect! :D

nose, agree.

But the shoes are PERFECT. Look at them. LOOK AT THEM!

I want them in real life, male, female, unisex.
Look at the bats!

On their own, they look fine and fun. But with this suit they clash and don't mesh well. If they were more subtle, maybe they could work.

hmm, you have a point.

What if the shoes were black with grey detail. Think that would work better.

Great looking Batgirl, mate.
Flashy, but not excessively, armoured, practical, it's got it all. I don't like her shoes, though. They look a little bit childish to me.
DanielHeard Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2014
Thanks fella. As far as her shoes go, her name IS Batgirl. Just saying.

You're most welcome.
Must be that I think of the girl part in Batgirl as a question of gender rather than age.
See you.

The drones make perfect sense, surprised it hasn't been done sooner

Awesome redesign!  This is my favorite I've seen, hands down (including mine!)  Love the color palette, the tech, the glowing eyes and emblem.  Very well done!
DanielHeard Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2014
Thanks a bunch. Yours is pretty killer though. The harness straps are used very satisfyingly as graphic shapes, and your treatment of the faceplate mask with the hair out the back is the best I've seen this contest.
