I like the more casual look of the Burnside Batgirl...

Strangely, Stephanie Brown's costume seems more like the iconic one. But I like that the Burnside one seems to be taking cues from the Yvonne Craig version from the '66 TV show.

The Burnside costume is one of my favorite costumes of all time. Easy vote here.

I'll toss a vote to Stephanie Brown, as I nominated her costume. I like the use of color highlights in it, and the textured look to the purple regions suggests a higher degree of protection than previous Batgirl costumes. (But Burnside is a pretty good costume in its own right, and has a lot to recommend it.)

I'm still bummed they're planning on ditching the Burnside Suit and going back to a more "traditional" but spandex-y look. The Burnside Suit represented a genuine step towards making a major character's costume something that an acrobatic non-super crimefighter might actually wear. The suit also represents a lighter, more hopeful era of Batgirl's rebooted history which they're also starting to steer away from.

Rule #1 for DC Comics Heroes: No one can ever be happy, unless that happiness is a setup for devastating tragedy.
