"Gal" Friday! Katy Mor

Comic-Con International 2012 "aka" Hollywood Super-Series ended a couple of weekends ago, and if you're like me you missed out on a massive [really huge] crowd of genre fans, plus endless debuts and/or reveals for scores of upcoming television series, films, games, toys and perhaps an odd snippet or two about the world of (you know) COMIC BOOKS. Sigh!
I usually troll the web after big conventions for photos that others upload for the rest of us to enjoy, and this wonderful image of a cute cosplayer decked out in the original Ms. Marvel costume from the Bronze Age of mighty Marvel Comics easily leaped out and grabbed my attention. Her sticky badge says "Katy Mor", so in the absence of any other I.D. info, lets applaud this sexy gal, and quickly induct her into the Catacombs for posterity. Now, why did Marvel see the need to discard this classic outfit in favor of the somewhat too-busy new "look" Carol Danvers has adopted for her recently revealed turn as "Captain Marvel"?

That's not actually Ms. Marvel's original costume, but looks more like the second costume with the color scheme of the first costume.

Either way, she makes it look perfect.

Splitting hairs, Scott. Splitting hairs. It certainly has more in common with her original suit, than Dave Cockrums' admittedly cool redesign from near the end of her first series.

Yeah, it's the perfect suit alright - the skin suit! And let's split a few hairs here and there.
AND HHOOWWWWWLLL!

Here...I'll re-post another one. My last one two days ago has yet to show up. I said....

The slightly-revised Ms. Marvel costume that debuted in her issue #9 (Sept 1977) has always been my favorite. The all-black costume she adopted in issue #20 (Oct 1978) is too generic. (Who is that, Psylocke?) I appreciated it when Carol gave her original suit to Ultra Girl to wear when Suzy graduated. Note also it's the one Norman Osborn chose for Karla Sofen when he had her impersonate Ms. Marvel for his Dark Avengers.
Thanks!
