Okay, I actually didn't have a lot of time to think about this (just got back from Dragon*Con, forgot all about internet responsibilities, etc.), so I'm sure there's something out there I hate MORE... but I'm going to go with my gut and say Starfire.

.

There's not a lot I enjoy about the costume (maybe the gauntlets... those are kind of hot). It's barely there, there's a weird crotch jewel, and the color is ALL WRONG for her skin. Purple on orange does nothing for me.

However, honestly, I've seen cosplayers do this costume and pull it off really well. Just want to put that out there.

RUNNER UPS:
Batman ZUR-EN-ARRRRGGGHR (as I like to call it)
Some of the stuff they put Kara in in the late 70's.
Rogue's costume from X-Men Evolution (does that count? Cause I really hate it).

The Power Window bugs me, but I'll go with something I've hated for many years:



What enrages me most is when they take Diana's costume -- which is already sexeh enough, thank you most kindly -- and the panties keep shrinking in the dryer or something. Sometimes you have to break out a magnifying glass...

I've bitched about Kory's costume on here before, so yeah, I agree 100%. I think the horrible colour contrast is my biggest gripe, with the weird vajazzling crotch brooch coming a close second.

Her original costume had a lot more gray in it, didn't it? And if memory serves, Perez had the brooch set more like a belt clasp. Both seem to have changed since, and not to her benefit.

ruhig_knight: (PNTS: For the Love of...)
From: [personal profile] ruhig_knight
Yes, agree on Starfire though my biggest peeves with it besides the large amounts of fanservice it provides is that I can't help but wonder what keeps her breasts from falling out of those straps (Which tends to vary from different artist interpretations). That and the costume seems to be a source of a lot of disrespect poor Kory gets.

And Huntress' bare midriff costume. There are a lot more worst fanservice-designed costumes out there but the current thing Huntress is stuck with angers me on two simple reasons 1) She's a non-superpowered human and 2) She's a non-superpowered human who was shot several times in the stomach and almost died from it. Supergirl with a midriff? Fine, I don't care for it but she's at least invulnerable. Someone like Huntress with one? Not fine.

And of course, Looker's various costumes... Now to me Nightwing's infamous Disco-suit and Jericho's original renaissance-pirate thing were bad, but hilarious. Meaning I could look at them and at least chuckle at their bizarre 80's-ness, but with what Looker wore makes me wince in pain usually.



And she didn't get much better costume wise for awhile... And that goes for the costume her evil-Earth counterpart wore in JL: Crisis on Two Earths.

ALSO....

That costume is actually pretty brilliant. This is after Beast's "secondary mutation" which probably tripled his body size and made the prospect of most clothing impossible.

PLUS, clever way to transform the "X" brand into the cut of the costume.

Not even "pretty" brilliant--totally FUCKING brilliant!

Knights of Pendragon. Okay, the costumes in themselves aren't all that bad (except Union Jack's which is, especially compared to his regular one), but since they mark the whole change of approach from the mystical end of spectrum to regular superhero stuff they get my vote out of sheer annoyance.

Not sure I really have a least favorite costume. I mean, there are 'least favorite ones for characters I like' (Madrox-bodysuit-with-skullcap, Bellybutton-Huntress), but no 'omg what an ugly costume' ones that keep popping up.

My least favorite iconic costume's probably Wonder Woman's. I know it'll never happen for long periods of times, but I'd like some of those attempts to make it more like an actual woman warrior's costume.

But overall? I don't know if there is one...
