Re: The Batsuit Thread - Part 2
Adam West's costume looks silly for a couple of easily remedied reasons. Firstly, the oval is stuck over the solar plexus rather than the sternum, making the torso look weirdly foreshortened. Secondly, the cowl was insufficiently sculpted, with detail painted on and soft ears.
It's rather frustrating because it was fairly close to a decent depiction of the Silver Age Batsuit. I think Robin's costume did its job pretty well, and most of the villains looked great. Remember that the modern, green-suited Riddler costume comes from Frank Gorshin's.
