Note: Longtime P:R Pal Jamie McKelvie joins us once again with this subtle, athletic, and I’d say, uncharacteristically functional version of an X-Uniform for Betsy Braddock, AKA Psylocke. – Dean Trippe
Now that’s a Betsy who looks like she’s not picking her butt-floss between fight scenes. She still looks confident, capable, and not someone I’d want to mess with.
Does she have a hood? It’s hard to tell.
Love the shoes.
Gorgeous. I like that it’s incredibly functional, like you said, but also really sexy without showing any skin. I love the laces on the sleeves and the shoes.
The purple nail polish (and short nails!) is a nice touch, too.
Yeah! I don’t think Psylocke is as bad as a lot of people seem to; I think she’s just crazy enough to work.
i love all the subtle Xs! always nice to see a design on here that’s both different & superior to what there currently is. would not mind seeing this in the comic at all.
Yes! Love it – top work, Jamie!
I’d buy this book. The X-Men could use a facelift.
I love it! Badass, functional, and still sexy!
I find it amazing that the Xs double as butterflies. really. love the design but marvel would only go for it if there was 80% costume on her, some how. i feel like this needs her red sache-thing though. i dunno.
Beautiful design. Far better than any other costume I’ve seen for her in the comics.
I like it! It’s simple and it has just enough high fashion style to it. Betty was a model before became an X-(wo)man afterall. Love the asymetrical X on the torso. Very clever.
I love it. Whenever I think of characters who desperately need a redesign, Psylocke is always at the very top of my list. She, more than almost anyone else, is consistently cursed with the dreaded ’8os thong-butt. I’m glad you ditched the red sash, this is such a streamlined, clean uniform I think that would have thrown the balance off. It’s nice that you were able to keep that clean look and still give a nod to the asymmetry she frequently rocks, but I would have also liked to see some reference to her leg bands, maybe as subtle seams or small padded bands on one (or both) of the legs.
Ron – Yes, it’s a hood.
Adam – Yep, It always struck me that Betsy should be stylish, given her previous career.
Hey Kieron! Use your magic powers to make this the first P:R to become canon. Do it for Betsy.
Love this! Stylish, smart and sexy!
Hundred times better than anything I’ve seen her in. I feel like she’s been stuck in some version of her awful ninja-leotard swimsuit since the ’90s.
Love it. I’m one of those people who think the X-Men work best in uniforms, and this could work great as the basis for one (each member using their own spot color and flourishes, of course).
The more I look at this, the more I’m struck by how cool the footwear is ALONE. Love the overall look.
And I’m on James W side, the X-Men should have uniforms, not costumes. I’d love to see different versions of this style for other mutants.
Great, great design.
