Set to debut in August, a new Batgirl costume has been revealed, which gives the popular crime-fighting heroine a more modern and playful look.

The new Batgirl costume was created by artist Babs Tarr, whose new costume design features a snap-on cape, a leather jacket, brighter shades of yellow, and a decidedly less gratuitously sexy look. In addition to Barbara Gordon's new costume, the comic will undergo a tonal shift as new co-writers Cameron Stewart and Brenden Fletcher takeover from current longtime Batgirl scribe Gail Simone. The tone is said to be more lighthearted and fun, with the new Batgirl costume meant to reflect that sentiment.

So far the new Batgirl costume has been a big hit with most fans and critics. It's even already spawned a lot of amazing fan art. Stats for Comic Book Vigilante Makeovers Trending: This Quarter & Hot
