Re: Has Batman hurt the genre where costumes are concerned?

My feeling about costumes is that they should make sense on the context of the story. Most artists aren't that photorealistic, so in the comics I just tend to imagine that, in a live action version, costumes have design features/are made of materials that make sense but the artist has a hard time replicating. In the movies, that's not a luxury they have.

That's actually why I dislike the movie Spider-Man costume. The costume looks like it was made by a professional costumer out of expensive materials, not an eighteen year old boy with a few yards of red and blue cotton, some opaque goggle lenses, and good sewing skills.

The world does not work the way you think it does:
