Sexiness vs Practicality in superheroine costume design - a dancer's perspective

A lot has been said about impractical, fanservicey female superhero costume designs. And it will probably keep getting said for years to come. But that's not quite what this post is about.

In a video she did a couple of months ago, Sheakoshan tried to answer an interesting question. Can one design a superheroine costume that's both sexy and practical?

She comes at it from a unique perspective. As a dancer, Sheakoshan has seen plenty of people moving around in spandex, and she knows what it can and cannot do, and what will and will not work to keep certain bits from spilling out.



Honestly, I think the video is pretty informative - not just as a viewpoint on an oft-contentious topic, but as a superheroine costume design tutorial. I know I'll be keeping a lot of what she said in mind.
