Batgirl Black Costume Bishoujo Statue
DC Comics: Jay Cochran - 2011.06.01
A Kotobukiya Japanese import! The first DC Comics bishoujo-inspired statue is back by popular demand in a beautiful new color scheme, Batgirl Black Costume! The bishoujo collection combines DC’s superheroines and villains with traditional Japanese stylings. The classic and best known Batgirl first appeared in 1967, the alter ego of Gotham City police commissioner’s daughter Barbara Gordon. Brilliant and courageous, Batgirl helped defend the good citizens of Gotham City alongside her mentor Batman. Barbara’s return to the Japanese bishoujo “pretty girl” style (based on original character art by world famous illustrator Shunya Yamashita) sees her taking a darker turn with her other iconic costume.

Expertly trained by Bruce Wayne, Batgirl stops bad guys in their tracks with her sexy costume and alluring pose. As with the original bishoujo statue, every element of her classic bodysuit has been recreated from her tall boots to her bat-symbol, utility belt, gloves, cape, and cowl. But this time, instead of gray and blue Batgirl is clothed head to toe in inky black with bright gold highlights! There’s even a dynamic difference in the textures, with the matte finish of the heroine’s suit contrasting against her glossy cape and cowl. Barbara stands with one foot resting on a gargoyle, accentuating her long legs, while she slyly spins her cape in front of her. Batgirl’s long flowing red hair adds a powerful third color to the palette and helps draw the eye to her beautiful Bishoujo-styled face.

Sculpted by Atelier Bamboo, Batgirl is constructed of high-quality pvc plastic and stands approximately 9 inches tall (in 1/7 scale like all of the DC Bishoujo statues) with the exclusive Gotham City gargoyle base. Barbara looks great in black, and is the perfect companion to the previously released blue and gray version of Batgirl!

Available December 2011.
