Supergirl, Super Fine

To minimize the differences, I’ve gone with Supergirl as our female superhero up for a sexy make over.

Supergirl has always been one of those characters that doesn’t really have a lot going for her except being the female version of Superman.  And that’s all well and good, but it really has lead to her really seeking an identity as a character, which you can see in frequent wardrobe changes throughout the years.  Unlike the iconic Superman uniform, Supergirl’s costume changes practically with every story line, artist, writer, title, crisis, or drop of a hat.  Most of the designs wind up being more or less Superman’s uniform but as a dress.  Some of them get more creative than others, but ultimately she always seems to come back to “what if Superman was a girl, and a cheerleader?”  I think we can do way better than that, and skirts don’t exactly scream “superhero” to me.  So lets see why I made the choices I made in her new sexy red and blues.

The Hourglass figure is the predominant shape that most people agree says “sexy lady,” so I wanted to emphasize the the width of her bust and her hips, but NOT her shoulders, as we did with Superman.  Going in the OPPOSITE direction, we extend the Super S delta across her breasts and downwards away from her shoulders.  This, emphasizes her bust, but minimizes her powerful manly shoulders (which are a result of being crazy strong).  We use the same darker-blue ribbing we did with Superman (to keep to a stylistic theme) to visually minimize her waist and show off her ever sexy abdominal core.  Everyone admires a nice pair of abs, male or female.  To emphasize her hips, we give her a wide, low belt, which also makes her red briefs seem briefer than they actually are.  As we showed with Superman, nothing’s sexier than a bit of skin, so we keep her thighs bare, and give her an off the shoulder neck-line.

I’m going to pause here, and address why I did this, because I think it’s worth stating.  Whereas men have sexy arms, women have sexy legs.  For whatever reason we have it in our heads that strong legs are feminine and strong arms are masculine.  I’m sure there’s an explanation, but I don’t know it.  But regardless of why we think this, we do.  So whereas we covered up Superman’s legs, and showed off his arms, we do the reverse with Supergirl.  And they look better and sexier for it.

Because of the big S on her chest, we can’t really show any cleavage, but we can give the impression of being undressed by highlighting her collarbones and tops of her shoulders.  It gives her a very sexy look without actually showing a whole hell of a lot.

We also give her boots a few more inches of lift than we gave to Superman (yeah, he had heels, go look).  I hear a lot of people complain that high heels make no practical sense in superherodom, yet they show up EVERYWHERE.  While I agree stilettos are kinda silly for an active life style, heels do wonderfully attractive things to a person’s calf muscles.  They give your legs a longer, sleeker, stronger, sexier look.  I’d also like to state that running in heels is perfectly possible and just because it hurts YOUR mortal feet, doesn’t mean the girl from krypton can’t take it in stride and look crazy hot all at the same time.  Over all you’ll note that Supergirl, while having many of the same design elements as Superman, uses a lot more curves and fewer straight hard lines.  This also accents her femininity which we want to celebrate rather than hide.

So there you have it.  Two iconic superheroes done up in costumes to be unquestionably hot, but refraining from being degrading, demeaning, or sexist.  A blend of practicality and killer fashion.  What do you guys think?

    I really like them both. The only thing I might’ve changed on this one is giving her booty-shorts-underwear-style bottoms rather than just the brief briefs, simply because it looks like she’s wearing a singlet. Magically, though, you’ve managed to make the only sexy singlet ever =)
    Two thumbs up!

  2. kreek says:

    at first i thought it was just the same costume, only, on a female

    then i realized, no, its not, its extremely different, even though it looks the same at first glance

    well done

    as a side note of curiosity, could you make a drawing of super girl in the superman costume?
    maybe even superman in super girls costume
    i think it would be interesting to see the contrast of how it works out

  3. Gimarie says:

    I have to say that her heels are awesome – and running in wedge-style heels as hers are isn’t nearly as hard (or painful) as running in four to six in stilettos … not that I’d know since I don’t wear them, but then I don’t wear them for a reason! Wedges I know, and they are definitely sprint-worthy if you know how to do it.

    I love this though – these are great costume ideas, and your reasoning is pretty logical too! I was going to say that it would be rad to see a sexy Batman/whatever his counterpart is nowadays, but Batman’s pretty sexy already so that might be a moot point. ^^ Great job though!!!!

  4. Annie says:

    Honestly, the briefs look too brief and really make me want to buy her some pants. Incredibly tight spandex pants in keeping with your project of sexification, but pants none-the-less. It’s not an issue of how much skin she’s showing, but the proportions, something about the cut on the leg openings just seems weird.

    On the topic of heels, well, heels wouldn’t be an issue for Supergirl, like at all, since, technically, she doesn’t need to be able to run what with the whole flying thing. It should be more of an issue for folks without the ability to hoover off the ground and such who have to do their villain-chasing on foot, as stilettos are not compatible with sustained running, even if you can actually run in them without breaking or twisting anything. And in large metropolitan cities or the unpaved countryside, it becomes an issue of terrain, not the ability of the wearer. I can sprint for a bit in heels if I need to, but a fair number of mine are scuffed from getting caught on cobblestones or in ventilation grates and I’m clearly not running through abandoned warehouses and slums and whatnot on a regular basis. So if a superheroine is to insist on heels, she better damn well have a large shoe budget, or be able to fly, because as balanced as she may be, the ground she is running on will not be kind to her shoes in the slightest. Wedges are definitely better in all regards, so kudos for that. The one advantage stilettos have though, in the practicality department, is they do more damage to your opponent.

  5. HedgeHogAJ says:

    The top actually seems more impractical than the shoes to me. I realize it was done to be visually appealing, but all it would take is her cape getting caught as she’s taking off and she’ll suddenly be wearing a very different costume.

  6. Kim says:

    … those are wide hips?
    Some of the ladies from Templar, AZ have Wide Hips. Agatha from Girl Genius has wide hips. Those are bloody dainty.
    And those legs are thin — dancer legs. Thing about dancers? They don’t have big breasts.

    I’d love to see supergirl looking a bit more realistic, myself. Maybe i’m the only one that would find that sexy…

    (and some serious apologies if I’m critiqueing drawing errors, rather than stylistic choices)

    Dude, please tell me that youre heading to write a lot more. I notice you havent written an additional weblog for a while (Im just catching up myself). Your blog is just too important to become missed. Youve received so very much to say, this kind of knowledge about this topic it would be a shame to see this weblog disappear. The internet needs you, man!

    Well I definitely enjoyed studying it. This information procured by you is very constructive for proper planning.

    One other thing to point out is that an online business administration training course is designed for college students to be able to efficiently proceed to bachelor’s degree education. The 90 credit certification meets the lower bachelor college degree requirements and once you earn the associate of arts in BA online, you will possess access to the modern technologies within this field. Several reasons why students need to get their associate degree in business is because they can be interested in the field and want to have the general education and learning necessary ahead of jumping in to a bachelor education program. Thanks alot : ) for the tips you really provide as part of your blog.

Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the web will probably be much more helpful than ever before.

  30. FaipsySpeashy says:

    Some heel Lifts are known as adjustable heel Lifts, what this indicates is the fact that the thickness at the heel point of the height insole can be varied based on taste, by adding wedge shaped inserts to the shoe lift additional height increase can be accomplished, The adding of additional wedges has two significant benefits, firstly, the shoe lift wearer can gradually increase their height, so as to prevent a sudden jump in height, that may cause undesirable comments, secondly the user can become accustomed to walking with the heel Lifts, this is a very good point to think about when purchasing you 1st heel Lifts, walking will feel various at first and also the capability to gradually introduce the lift wedges can avoid serious accidents brought on by instability

    In deciding the type of school to send your child to, the choices come down to either private schools or public schools. While the consensus on whether one is better than the other is mixed at best, there are differences in the two choices that you should consider. For starters public schools are part of a larger political structure that resides in Washington D.C. and is part of the American wish to offer all children in this country the opportunity to enjoy an education, at least through the end of high school. Because of this political agenda schools in America are, to some extent, standardized with similar curriculum throughout the country. So it doesn’t matter where you live, the education you receive in a public school in Detroit, Michigan is going to be very similar to the education you would receive in Austin, Texas. Another factor that is standardized in the public arena is teacher certification. All teachers employed in public schools are certified and credentialed to teach according to the rules and regulations of this gigantic federal scheme. This isn’t always a bad thing; it’s just the way it is in the system.

  35. I have been previously browsing on on-line over about three working hours right now, on the other hand by no means discovered every appealing report like your own house. It can be fairly selling price adequate personally. For my part, in the event just about all website owners along with web owners created excellent material when you possibly do, online could be a whole lot more beneficial than any other time.

  36. I still can’t believe that the main stream media in the UK is not reporting on the gathering of the Bilderbergers. It’s only 3 weeks away for goodness sake!

  37. On June 6th 2013 the Bilderberg group (the worlds Global elite decision makers) will meet at The Grove Hotel, Watford, Hertfordshire for a 4 day conference to decide upon: Destroying Iran’s nuclear facilities within three years, Prolonging the war on Syria by arming anti-Assad elements, The threat of a global pandemic, Internet control, Diffusing austerity induced social protests, Preventing Britain from leaving the EU, Propping up the Euro to keep the Eurozone intact, Minimal 2013 economic growth, Increasing central bank power, tansferring more wealth from ordinary people to corporations and super-rich elites and Preventing a growing credit bubble from popping. You can guarantee none of the decisions made at this meeting will be in your best interest. Join the gathering army of peaceful protestors near the Hotel to have your say. http://bilderberg2013.co.uk/

  38. When I first browse the game pricing I thought it was a bit high, but now that I think it over, I don’t think so. How much does it cost to buy Bejeweled 2 for your cell phone? $7. 99+ not counting medical transfer fees. While $15 for pool Professionally is still a piece high, to someone that adores the game, they’ll pay it.

  39. For a game that till now almost all it offered you in contrast to patching was… what? Tweaking balances? You spend till now 52 dollars for harmony? And in the within the next 2 months, youll pay another 26dollars, we go up to finish 78 dollars so youll have Zul’aman and Zul’Gurub their particular new version??? Old dungeons again?
