I think it largely depends on how good/iconic the original design was. Bullseye and Elektra's outfits, for example, didn't bother me one way or the other
No, there IS nothing wrong if it still ooks good. But I think we're accepting more change than necessary. Did the Dark Knight costume TRULY look good? I think they went overboard for the sake of neck mobility & the suit looked robotic. Moreso than the much-maligned Green Goblin suit.
