Have you seen this badass clip from the pilot to the original Darkwing Duck where he fights a bunch of crooks on motorcycles?
It’s pretty cool and until yesterday I’d never seen it before!
Anyway, it gave me a costume design hankering and I decided to try reimagining Darkwing’s look as a leather jacket instead of just a goofy purple blazer (which is what I’m pretty sure the original was always intended to be, based on the way it’s animated and how it falls apart from damage etc.)
A leather jacket would be protective and practical! Not to mention very stylish.
The gloves are just good crime-fighting etiquette.
