Without getting too much into it, I think that the Starfire controversy last year was partly due to a failure in the writer and artist to properly convey the nature of the character and not so much in the skimpiness of it all. Koriand'r shouldn't be covered up like a nun, she's an alien princess and she should be more Dejah Thoris than Lilandra, which is what I tried to capture in my redesign.
I tried to elevate the "princess" aspect of the character, making her a bit more regal looking and I braided her hair because I thought it looked ridiculous otherwise. Hopefully, this version of the character can convey a sense of strength, presence and confidence in spite of the skin that's showing which, in my eyes, keeps the Tamaranean true to the character that George Perez and Marv Wolfman created.
