Browsing the net tonight I found a costume for Supergirl I can't fit into my memory.

http://supergirl.the-imperium.com/displayimage.php?album=3&pos=58

That's the link to the wallpaper. Its the costume on the bottom 2nd from the left. I really have no clue but it will probably be obvious when someone points it out.

Thanks.

That's from the Peter David "Supergirl" series.  Gorilla Grodd brought out Supergirl's "Dark Side" in Issue #4 (a "Final Night" tie-in -- the first of many DC crossover events that disrupted Peter David's storyline).  See this for more details:

It does look nice.  It was one of the better Supergirl costumes.

My favorite Supergirl costumes are:
1. The Pre-Crisis Supergirl's late 1970s costume
2. The Post-Crisis Supergirl's first costume (before switching to the WB animated version's white crop top)
3. The Future Age Superman's sister Kara's costume (from the Dominus/Kismet story arc of 1998).

My least favorite Supergirl costumes are:
1. The Pre-Crisis Supergirl's 1985 costume (makes her look too much like a high school cheerleader)
2. The WB animated version Supergirl's first costume, which became the Post-Crisis Supergirl's last costume)
3. The current Supergirl's costume, even with the addition of a Captain Marvel Junior-like cape.

Vic George 2K6, your third favorite Supergirl costume was actually worn by the Earth-1 Kara Zor-El prior to the classic '70s "blouse and hotpants" costume (your #1 choice).  The "mod" long gloves, hipboots and miniskirt outfit was created by Wonder Woman, during her depowered "Diana Prince" days when she ran a dress shop and fought crime as DC's version of Emma Peel.   :wink:   In reality, this costume was submitted by Barbara Reader of New Hyde Park, New York -- several costumes Kara wore in her Adventure Comics days came from fan solicitations.

For a scene of Diana's dress shop at the debut of this particular costume:

Paul Ryan certainly made the costume look good on the Future Age Supergirl, probably better than how it looked on the Pre-Crisis Supergirl.
