The short cut works for DOFP. And, blacks not familiar with X-Men would HOWL as to "why does the black woman have to try to be white and wear blue contacts?" I got that very same reaction from my mom when I told her about Storm in 2000.
Signed, a concerned black American.
I think having the white hair against the dark skin would be striking and the blue eyes I do understand what you mean by that. It may not look natural because its not natural its fantasy so they can do things like that with no problem. I actually liked the all white long hair my only concern was that it looked like a cheap wig and those bangs Ughh!!! If they had a better stylist then it would have been by far my fav. Halle to me looks better with short hair so seeing her now I thought it was cool but it does look more Halle than Storm.
