P:R Redesign: Colin Alexander’s White Queen, Emma Frost!

Note: She’s become the queen mother of mutantkind, but she still retains the sharp edges from her life of criminal pursuits. Glasgow artist Colin Alexander brings us a new addition to Emma’s already buxom wardrobe with this surprisingly-non-revealing bodysuit (although that cape might be hiding something). – Chris A.

Here’s what Colin said about the design:

Emma Frost is a ridiculous paradox. She’s also one of my favourite X-men, so redesigning the character was scandalously good fun. Making the White Queen wear a practical uniform is a bit like taking all the baubles off a Christmas tree. Albeit a super rich, sexually overt, machiavellian Christmas tree. Capes, platform heels, inappropriate revelation of skin and a stiff drink. These are a few of her favourite things…

  1. This design is fantastic, in my opinion. I could totally picture Emma Frost wearing this when she’s gotten a bit older and wants to cover up more. Great job!

  2. This is great. I can approve any Emma Frost redesign that gets rid of stilettos, laces, straps, and physics-defying cleavage. The structure of this cape looks regal and superheroic, fitting for a White Queen. If the stomach “X” is really a cutout, then I have nothing negative to say about this as a redesign. I only wonder about the decision to go with exposed finger-tip gloves.

  3. Finally! An outfit which doesn’t make Emma Frost look like she should be working a street corner at 1 am! I know that comic book fans tend to be teenage boys, but some of the costumes in x-men look like they belong in a fetish shop. I’ve always wondered how anybody could take Emma (or, for that matter, Storm and Psylocke) seriously in the ridiculous outfits. I love this, slightly more conservate, yet still quite sexy, look for Emma.

  4. I’ve got to say I love this. The shading on the cape gives a hint that there may be some sort of a seam on her chest. Maybe an actually seam or the edge of a corset top? Either way it looks awesome and great job!

  5. This is great! So sleek, so fashion forward. Very feminine. Svelt. Just *mwahh!*

    I love love love the belly-button with an X over it! It’s very 60′s-I-Dream-of-Jeannie-exposed-midriff-taboo meets peek-a-boo, electric-tape-x’ed-over-nipples-naughtiness (in case anyone doesn’t get the Jeannie reference, her sash covered her bellybutton, because an exposed bellybutton was considered too risque for 60′s television). Playfully perfect for the White Queen!

    The one thing that seems unnecessary is that red X button. I don’t think this design needs it. It pulls my eyes up towards it, and the X on the stomach and on the backs of her hands are all the insignias she needs.

  6. I absolutely love the way the hem of the cape looks at first like a revealing bustline. Thats brilliant thinking. She’s totally covered and utterly naked at the same time.

  7. This is FAR sexier then any underwear or revealing outfit. It’s more sensual and mature. She looks cold, calculating, and completely in charge. I love the princess lines with the front seam on the boots, as well as the off-center front seam on the cape. The single red accent reminds me of The Scarlet Letter, a single sensual color, like a single red rose in a bouquet of white. I kinda wanna poke the cut-out on her belly.

    I think I would actually be afraid of this Emma Frost. The original dressed for boys. This one is dressed for men.

  8. Nice costume. It’s interesting how the cape reads nude because of her white flesh. I especially like the subtle shading of her cloaked cleavage.

  9. This is great.
    Emma Frost has always been a tough sell for me because she is one of the few female characters where over-the-top sexuality makes perfect sense, but she tends to be drawn SO outrageously that it often becomes silly and ludicrous .
    However, this design answers that perfectly– still incredibly sexy, as fits the White Queen, but at the same time, practical and more realistic than basically a naked woman wearing strategically placed band-aids.

  10. Great design; don’t need all the “X”s in my view. I think the X-Men have generally become a little too trigger-happy with all the Xs. You only need one. We get it.

  11. Never been interested in reading Emma Frost because of the ludicrous costumes mentioned by others already: this costume makes me interested. I was always confused by how strong and interested her character descriptions are and how proportionally silly her outfits are! This redesign works wonders. Like others have noted, it looks regals and heroic, whilst still being eye-catching and sexy. Great job!

  12. Whoops, typos corrected:

  13. I want to say I love this- but why all the hate on some when on others people are all about giving positive support?

  14. I’ve seen lots and lots of redesigns on this site (so has everyone, I guess), ranging from ridiculous to unwieldy to cool… but in my opinion, this is the best, most worthy to become official, design that I’ve ever seen. Very well done. :)

  15. This is brilliant. In-character without being too supervillainish or ridiculous. Could do without the heels (all superhero costumes could) but otherwise FANTASTIC.
