The Ron Frenz Rule of Costume Design

This is something I came up with a few years ago, and I thought I would share.

The Ron Frenz Rule of Costume Design is simple: All costume designs must be done so that, if Ron Frenz were to draw it, it would look normal/cool.

This is because sometimes, people get too fancy and intricate with their costume designs, and it becomes a case of the costume looking cool if that particular artist draws it, but dorky otherwise.

Ron Frenz is a fine artist, but he is no George Perez, when it comes to intricate design, and this became fully evident when the Avengers guest-starred in Thunderstrike during the time when they all got "kewl" redesigns by current hot artists. Well, Frenz basically just simplified them all.

So they all broke the rule!

So go back through your comics, and see if you can think of any other costumes that would break the Ron Frenz Rule of Costume Design!

I still don't get how this reflects poorly on the artists who designed the costumes and not Ron Frenz. (That's two snarky posts in a row! I'm ruining your blog, Cronin!)

Because a good comic book costume should not be so ornate that only one or two artists can accurately draw it.

There's no point to it if that's what it going to be!!
