JL Generation Lost - Ice gets some new threads!

Ice has gotten something of a makeover recently

Personally I think her new costume is great

Spoilers for issue 18 of Generation Lost


Its a mix of her traditional look, with a smidge of her other looks included (the ice cutout makes a bit of a return, this time as a symbol).Thank god they ditched the T-shirt over her costume

EDIT: I apologise for any offense

Oh, it's on now. First Magog, then Max, Power Girl really has a good tendency to beat people who really have it coming.

Anyone have popcorn?

Ice is trying really hard to stand exactly like Power Girl.

Well, he doesn't have boobs, so has to do something else cliche.

That is a great look for Ice. One of those new looks that works for a character so very nice. Unlike the Tin Man look for Alan Scott...

It really looks like a Legionnaire's costume to me.

I believe you're thinking of Polar Boy's original costume. Not a bad catch. Looks better on Tora though. :D

Ice has been wearing boots like that for a couple of decades I think...

Isn't that essentially how Ice looked in Justice League Unlimited?

Thank god they ditched the T-shirt over her costume, Tora isn't a fat kid at a swimming pool
Wow. Was that necessary?

[personal profile] rdfox 2011-01-27 04:35 am (UTC)(link)
Not really. Particularly since the reason that the Adam Hughes-designed costume she'd been wearing since the 90s featured the tank top was that she was fairly modest, and uncomfortable with wearing a spandex body stocking like Bea had selected for her.

Personally, I liked the Hughes look better; it's distinctive and different from any other heroine; this is basically just a standard superheroine costume with some fuzzy fringes.

I'm not talking about the costume. I'm talking about the disgusting analogy.

I'm just kind of ...shaking my head that the replies to you on this completely miss what you were trying to get at.

[personal profile] rdfox 2011-01-28 02:27 am (UTC)(link)
Yes, I got that, I was pointing out how much worse the analogy is due to the in-universe reason for the shirt that was cited when introducing the costume.

It's particularly bad when you use that sort of analogy when there's already a perfectly valid reason for it being there.

[personal profile] richardak 2011-01-27 05:03 am (UTC)(link)
I agree; I liked the old costume a lot. It was dynamic; it was distinctive; and it fit Tora's personality. This one isn't bad though, and it could grow on me.

What really bothers me about this, though, is this: just when did Tora have the opportunity to design and sew a new costume? Last we saw, she was wearing her Hughes-designed costume, and the team has been on the run and hiding out, when they weren't under direct attack. So when did she have time to make a run to the fabric store to buy the materials for this new suit, and then sew it?

No, it wasn't.

Word. On behalf of all fat people, I am deeply offended.

How about "Tora isn't a ridiculously pale kid who sunburns instantly and always has to wear a t-shirt in the swimming pool" ?

I resemble that statement!

Come to think of it, so does your icon.

Except she probably was! Nordic ice princess and all. Not that I got the impression they had many outdoor summer pools around the palace, of course...

Not seeing a whole lot different about it to be honest, except, as noted elsewhere, it's like Polar Boy... except she should be rocking the little hat.

Yes! Every ice based character should have a little hat like that.

Although Captain Cold's fur hood is an acceptable substitute....

It's not a bad costume per se, but the fur belt is kind of unnecessary.

And did her hair get suddenly shorter, or is it just the way Lopresti drew her on this page? Tora...have you been giving yourself haircuts and making yourself new costumes off-panel? Does Gavril have a sewing machine built into his armor?

Now I actually like the fur accents. Sort of Victorian erotica-ish. Do NOT like the very masculine portrayal of Fire. Boobs that look like pectorals, way too much washboard.

All in all, I do like these images. Square-neckline Power Girl is an interesting change of pace.

The rectangular cut-out's been standard, lately. The last time the round version was used was JSA All Stars 1, and the last time anything other than the rectangle was used was JSAAS 3, where there was no cut-out at all.

I definitely prefer Ice's new rags to Power Girl's boob-window being a square.

Apology accepted (though I'll note that "sorry" is always more appreciated than "sorry you were offended").

Hell yeah! I can't wait to see Max taken down. He's one of those villains I have absolutely no sympathy for, or can make fun of. He just wants me to punch him in the face. The more people dogpile on him, the better.

Don't know about the belt, but I am otherwise supportive of this new costume for Ice. Of course, it might turn out to be one of those that only looks good depending on who draws it. =/
auggie18: (Breastplate)

[personal profile] auggie18 2011-01-28 12:37 am (UTC)(link), I liked her old outfit. It was unique and cute and lots of artists could draw it without messing it up.
