Gambit - Redesign by Josh-Gowdy Gambit - Redesign by Josh-Gowdy
I thought I'd have a go at re-designing Gambit's costume as a response to Project Rooftop's 'Heroes in need'. [link]

Here's hoping they go for it. :)

Crikey, just when I thought Gambit couldn't get any more gay.

Not that ther's anything wrong with that.

This IS gambit, i would add some headgear to make up for his faux-masque, but then again i wouldn't make it part of this costume, it would be some sort of equipment (night-vision goggles or the like)

i like the idea of night vision goggles -- maybe some transition type lenses -- clear inside, dark in the sun, green night vision in the dark!

My favorite part of this redesign is the gambling chip. Based on his power set those make much more sense than cards.

This is a hell of an update- "good-bye stock Bronze Age costume, hello modern fashion"

The subtler colours also add a lot. Also thank god for not including that silly face-frame helmet thing Gambit's got

Really like the striped shirt. I agree that it's an underused design element and I think it really works here.

that's not bad. he needs his ponytail though

Thanks!

Regarding the pony-tail, I was trying to lose all the elements that dated him in the 90s. Pony-tail might work.. but I gave it the chop to be sure :)

That's what made people fall in love with him was that wild mop and rebel ponytail XD and his sexy ass voice. least that's why I fell in love with him

Eh different shirt, that one reminds me too much of the sandman

I was trying to think of which characters actually incorporated horizontal stripes and all I could think of was Sandman and one of the Rogues (can't remember his name)-- which on the plus side meant that it wasn't an overused element, but on the negative side those characters (Sandman, et al.) really own it!

Thanks for commenting (and the :+fav:)!

Oh no prob! And over all besides the shirt I really like the concept but from afar I did think it was Norman Osborn ^^; You might wanna redue his hair
