magdalena...or why comic artists are fetishists by nebezial magdalena...or why comic artists are fetishists by nebezial
its quite hilarious how well., most costumes in comics today would just as soon be selling in specialised sex shops as serve their evilfighting purposes XD. and this is practically the case with every superhero comic.evenmore so nowadays when spandey is so last millenium, so...go latex!...but hey....its waterproof...so there is that.


tho honestly...summer nights? how the hell do the heroes keep a straight face while boiling under a costume?... a bit of fast food for your thoughts XD

Look at professional soldiers.   When geared up for killing they tend to all look alike.  Basically form follows function.  Now, if beating up super powered villains, was the sole objective, it would seem to me that the previous rule would tend to apply.  Costumes would focus on enhancing special abilities, protection etc... and apart from that, they would all tend to look alike.

However, when a person decides to be a super hero, they are often doing more then just fighting bad guys, they also want to proclaim how special they are. Thus the flashy "Look at Me" costume.  So, in most cases, super hero's are just seeking to establish a unique identity for themselves.

Take Red Sonja for example.  Most useless and stupid armor ever.  Why does she wear it?  Because she is so bad ass that it doesn't matter what armor she wears, and this is her way of saying "You want this?" "Come get it, if you can!"

I once shamelessly used Mag's costume design for a drow drawing I did. Im not sorry because it turned out awesome. I just wish I knew where I stuck the digital copy of it....lol, but this is one of the best drawings Ive seen of Magdalena. ^^

Oh, WOW!! This is amazing and I love the "costume"... Yes, if I looked as good as this woman does in THAT body-suit, I'd wear the thing 24/7!! Lol!

 

 AMusoke  has a reference to this picture on a piece he's working on so I had to check it out. I'm glad I did because I love to "contrast and compare" on identical pieces from 2 different artist's. I can't wait to see the finished work from AMusoke and because of him I'll be adding you to my watch list :)

 

Nicely done!! :clap:

Could just look like latex but be make out of that stuff they make spill resistant cloth out of. Who knows, the stuff could be cotton covered in some weird super-suit goo and the goo makes it look shiny and second skin like. Just thoughts ^_^

I always wondered that cause latex is SUPER not breathable so what about Catwoman? or was that leather? but still it's non-breathable. But yeah in comics/ movies the female outfits aren't breathable or movable at all.

Apparently superheroes must look good and latex looks mighty fine on female superheroes, whether they are boiling under that costume or not is secondary.=)

To tell you honestly I can not imagine Batman in that kind of "suit", I always figured he has some kind of cooling system in there, with the gadgets he uses it is the most probable solution.

To add to your original comments, the hilarious thing about the Magdalena is that every incarnation is supposed to be a nun. Yet guys like Basaldua have her running around in tiny thong panties and thigh-highs as if A) that were in any way appropriate protection in combat, and B) you could pick that stuff up in the Vatican gift shop.

At least Blake's incarnation used a full (leather? kevlar?) bodysuit, but still ridiculously unbreathable.

Do you remember Watchmen? When the Owl first thought about his super costume? Imagine if every hero had to go to a specialised sex shops and order his costume?

That must be tailored!

First of all I just want to say that you have become my favorite artist. I think your work is just down right amazing! Second my fiancee is a huge fan of the Magdalena comic. Would you be able to make this available as a print or something. It would make a great gift for her.

Thanks.

Yeah latex does not breath. At the end of a long night of crime fighting youd end up smelling like a sockless foot in an old shoe. I work in a haunted house and wear latex or silicone for a good 6 or 8 hours a day. Its all fun till the gear comes off...ick.

nope. I hope the breast plate is at least made of sturdy steal and that she never falls forward or gets hit hard in the chest. That sucker could crack open her ribs without padding.

But i have to admit she looks sexy.
