Done and done.

You have no idea how much this cheered me up just now.
I for one, think this is a major improvement. Look how empowered he is! And it’s relevant to the character as someone who is powered by the sun, he’d want to maximize the amount of sunlight he receives, right? It’s not like it makes sense for him to cover himself from chin to toe.
In fact, I think some strappy sandals might be an improvement.
strappy high heeled sandals would increase his height making him closer to the sun. and if wonderwoman can fight in heels it can’t be that hard, right?
Felt a dire need to contribute to the hilarity.
I could do this all day

Why, yes. Yes, I am a character designer that works in the game industry. How could you tell???THIS SO MUCH THIS I pointed this out inlesstitsnassand it’s so very true. And wrong.
But sometimes she has animal ears and sometimes she doesn’t! Diversity! And besides, the men all look the same too. Look they all have eyes and a nose!
No one is more excited about Batgirl’s new costume than Kara.
I didn’t think it was possible, but I improved the new Batgirl design with one simple addition…
I love it.
Holy Shit he really does prepare for everything
It’s official: Batman’s a closet moonie!

Doesn’t this also mean J’onn read Sailor Moon and is just cosplaying his favorite senshi?
It means J’onn and Bruce both talk about Sailormoon together and fangirl over their favorite senshi (or at least this is now canon to me).
God what dorks
"Cosplay" gives the impression that costuming at a convention is a Japanese phenomenon. It’s worth remembering that they got it from us. “[T]he story is that Japanese fans were looking through American sci-fi magazines, and in particular the ‘Star Trek’ conventions. And they thought, ‘Wow, what a fantastic idea.’ Of course, ‘Star Trek’ wasn’t widely known in Japan at that time, so they began dressing up as their favorite characters from their own home-made animation series and manga series.” Roland Kelts, author of Japanamerica: How Japanese Pop Culture has Invaded the US.
These first Star Trek conventions were largely organized by women and costuming was a key feature. The first in 1969, Star Trek Con, was a free event at the Newark, NJ, public library put together by librarian Sherna Comerford. It featured two kids dressed as “Sehlats”, a Trek species that had been mentioned but not seen on screen yet.
The first Trek convention with guests, Star Trek Lives!, had a costume call. It was organized by a committee of six fans, 3 women and 3 men. It soon featured a fan built Enterprise set where costumed attendees were photographed on the bridge.
US comic conventions have always had costumes too. Above, a picture of Wendy Pini as Red Sonja. Later she would be known as the artist and co-writer of Elfquest.
US geeks have been cosplaying long before Star Trek, or even the invention of the comic book. Scifi comic strip character Skygack was made into costumes for masquerade contests in 1908 and 1912.
