Still don’t get the shiny top, and I still think the silver gauntlets — perhaps because of their size now — clash with all the gold. Although the stars running down the new trousers, which are a nice tough, I think, might be silver, which would tie them in a bit.
Speaking of, the pants are a million times better, being not shiny and a nicer dark shade of blue. Most obviously an improvement are the red boots. The blue boots that matched her pants from the earlier outfit were immediately dumb looking even to my eye, which is about as non-observant and unfashion-conscious as you’re going to get. There’s a reason both Superman and Captain America have red boots to go with their largely blue costumes; you need the contrast. Same thing here.
Also notice the tiara is no longer hidden under an unruly mop of hair. This corrects several problems; first, it makes her hair look rather less like a rat’s nest. Second, it allows us to see the tiara, which otherwise why bother? Third, it suggests the tiara actually serves a useful function, keeping her hair out of her fight face when she’s fighting and whatnot. Given that WW is an Amazon, well, you would hope.
This raises the question of what the hell they were thinking with the earlier photo, which now smacks of a test job. Why was it even put out there? Overeager to get people talking, or was it on purpose to defuse criticism of the new costume? Frankly, it seems like they whipped this one up mighty fast if it was only in reaction to that earlier shot.
