Batgirl Speaks...

It's my re-designed version of the Cass Cain Batgirl, reading someone the riot act. Probably Robin. She hates Robin and takes every opportunity to beat his ass. Taking a cue from the original comic book Cass's lack of interest in the whole "secret identity" thing, my Cass only occasionally wears her mask. Since she's not interested in having a personal life apart from being Batgirl, she sees no reason-- other than the intimidation factor-- to hide her face. Also, the mask tends to restrict her peripheral vision. In fact, she's often in such a hurry to get out into the city and start breaking heads, she forgets even to take the mask with her. The cape is just an accent piece since it otherwise has no function whatsoever. She also wears the capsule-style utility belt because she doesn't particularly need tools of any kind, much preferring to use her fists and feet. When she does need equipment for a specialty mission, she substitutes the pouch belt.

I put way more thought into that than I did this goofy li'l sketch.
