Darna 2015 by rhardo
Darna 2015
A modern take on Philippine's most popular superheroin... DARNA!

Amazing colors by :iconwansworld:
Concept and lines by yours truly

Character belongs to Mars Ravelo

Notes:

I've been meaning to do my own take on Darna ever since watching her latest incarnations on TV. We can't argue the fact that the original look is the most iconic design of the character. As much as I love the costume though, I find it very revealing and impractical especially during battle. No disrespect, but she's like someone going in her private closet, wearing a strapless bra and a bottom underwear, and then when duty calls, she can just conveniently puts on a pair of boots, then voila... she's Darna already!

Women objectification in comics is seemingly trending over the last few decades. Mind you, this character was created in 1950. Wow! Apparently, people back then were not that conservative I surmise. With that in mind, I decided to do some tweaking of the main design. Obviously, I changed a lot of elements here and there.

The main idea here is having a costume with less showing of skin, but still sexy, while retaining the distinct iconic Darna look.

First off, to me, it's always odd to see stars on the bosom portion. While it may be intentional without malice, today's standards may view it as sexually cheesy... if you know what I mean. So, instead of removing those there, I just made some rearrangement so to speak. As an homage to the original design, I purposely inserted some seams, forming a star, on the same location, but concealed them a bit. If you have noticed, the middle design forms a big star shape as well, aside from the obvious golden star emblem in the middle. The top, overall, is veering away from the original tube concept. Besides being too revealing, I wouldn't believe the wearer can be comfortable enough to wear it during a fight... not to mention her focus might be divided just to make sure her top won't fall off. You get the idea.

As for the bottom... why the tight pants, you ask? Well, same reason could be applied here. Darna exists as a superhero, not for a pageant or as a sexy entertainer of sorts. Plus, we live in an era where amazon-warrior-women fashion is considered "ancient". A modern look would be reasonable and practical.

Lastly, the color scheme. Besides the common red-gold dominant pattern of the costume, I inserted black and white just to mix things up. Also, the color black adds a modern feel to it. And hey! Anyone who dons a black costume is cool and tough! Would you agree, bat fans? ;)

Some Darna followers might disagree... I would perfectly understand and I won't blame them. The original is always the best. But this is how I would like to view her as what she is intended to be. I'm not here to pick a fight or spark a debate. Just sharing some Darna love, alright? So there, I hope you dig it. Let me know your thoughts. I would love to hear (or read) them.

Thanks and God bless!
