I'm pretty much sure that I'm not the only member of this comm that subscribes to City of Heroes/City of Villains, the MMORPG  that lets you create heroes and villains and pit them against each other or other foes. I'm also pretty sure that I'm not the only CoH player that subscribes to Francis Ray Ottoman's credo that, if you're gonna look at someone's butt for four-hundred-odd hours, it should be one that you like looking at. CoH is noted among MMORPGs for the high degree of customizability of characters at the onset of character creation, although certain pieces are either unlocked through performing missions or reaching a certain level or length of subscription, or by buying them either with the in-game currency or real money. This, of course, brings us to the subject at hand (phwoar!). What are some of the options for rolling yer own bootyliciousness? (I'm only showing the female options because that's my area of interest; otherwise-enclined s_d/CoH people may do their own post.)

First, you have to decide on a booty--er, make that body type. (There are slider controls to shrink or grow different body parts; sadly, the badonkadonk isn't one of them.) There are four basic body types; below are contrasted the "average" and "heavy" types.          
It's almost like, I dunno, it's trying to point out something.

Aside from the all-over-covering costume options, you also have categories like "Tops (or Bottoms) With Skin", which is just what it says on the label. Although many of them are oriented more toward revealing other parts of the body, there are also some nice tuchus options. Here's the Witch Bare option, whose parts resemble an extremely famous logo:

Let's see Steph or Kate rock that look! (No, seriously, let's.) 

Some of the costumes, however, leave a bit to be desired from the rear view perspective. Hearts Plus (below) looks nice from the front, but in back, you can see why some players call it the "butt bra": 

Then there's the Metal option, which from this angle (and in this color) gives the impression that a king crab is doing something rather rude to our heroine:
That's all I have for now, but again, if any other players have favorite asstastic costume options, feel free to post 'em. And, finally, for legality, here's a splash page from the City of Heroes comic, #18:
She's an evil-alternate-universe counterpart of one of the "signature" heroes, and her name is Dominatrix. (No, really.)

Here's my Rule 34 Hal Jordan clone (click for embiggen):

Aaaand from the front! Difficult shot to get in combat.

I think you're thinking of rule 63. Rule 34 is "there is porn for everything."

*raises a hand* I play daily on Liberty, Virtue, and Freedom. And if I could get my laptop to do screen shots, I would so be spamming them all over the place.

So cool. Thank you for sharing. It makes me wish I was _any_ good at games so I could play just to have fun with costumes.

Joooooooooooin us. A trial account costs you nothing but a bit of time, and if you decide to stay, huzzah!

:) Like I don't spend enough of my time online. Must...resist....pull...of..another..way...to...spend..time online and not do...stuff..around the apartment...(Shatner style score: 6.9)

Seriously. I do need to actually get off my butt and do things like clean. And no procrastinate. If I were actually in school, I would be failing big time.

Also, if you do decide to give CoH a try, I'm sure I'm not the only one here who'd be happy to shoot you an invite code.

I just played this free welcome-back weekend. The character generator still is amazing, but the gameplay post 30 is so mind-numbing...there's a reason I have a dozen characters.

Founders' Falls

The swarms! The swarms! They're going to get me! My head is 'asplode from the buzz!

I still get the cold shivers from remembering the hunt for the last swarm in all those missions there.
