A Powerful Cosplay of New 52 Supergirl
Supergirl’s New 52 look has certainly earned its fair share of negative comments in both the cosplay and the comic book community. In fact, several of the New 52 character changes have been heavily criticized by fans who feel that the New 52 management has ruined some of their favorite DC characters by making too many significant changes in the characters’ personalities and costumes. Out of all the changes in Supergirl’s characteristics and costume, fans seem to be in a serious uproar about the lack of traditional aspects that have been lost in her costume, such as Supergirl’s trademark skirt or shorts that have been switched for a solid leotard with a big red shield shaped eye soar towards the bottom of the leo, which they find to be too sexually appealing for a teenage girl’s character.
However, not every Supergirl fan loathes her new makeover; adorable French cosplayer Laurence has crafted a super cute New 52 costume that truly captures Supergirl in a non-proactive light. By editing her photos onto actual pages from the comics, she shows us that the New 52 Supergirl costume is just as awesome as the classic Supergirl costume. The way that Laurence has changed up the design on the top of the leo by having the thick seams that draw your eyes towards her super epic “S” shield and stunning red and yellow cape, certainly helps divert all the attention from what some fans found to be so appalling about the New 52 Supergirl’s costume.
In the comic, the new boots seem very awkward and uncomfortable; however, Laurence has done a magnificent job at making them look more functional, while still maintaining a modernly futuristic feel. Overall, Laurence has done an excellent job at showing how powerful and cute Supergirl still is without objectifying the teenage character’s appeal.
