Similarly, human musculature can simply be drawn as if it bulges through whatever armour is supposed to form the costume.

The costume designer has to deal with an actual human body and actual fabrics. For that reason, I find a 2d design that clearly represents realistic anatomy and shows fabric working in a plausible fashion, to be more informative than a video game render.
True, they do make some of the same cheats/shortcuts, that's why I said changes would be necessary. I agree.

Luckily, we have had designers do all the hard work and trail blaze for us so that we don't have to.

Thank whoever came up with that move-able neck.

Arkham suit on a realistically proportioned human being with a move-able neck area and downsized gauntlets and boots? Still not willing to come to the dark side?
