We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, as well as the special qualities of comic book storytelling, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great pinups, fan art and other illustrations on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, and some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it is awesome.
Listen: If it was even remotely socially acceptable, there is a good chance that I would wear a full on Kamen Rider suit, complete with helmet andhenshinbelt, every time I left the house.

Can you just roll up into JC Penney and ask for "a Kamen Rider scarf?"
What I'm getting at here is that tokusatsu costumes are not exactly acceptable street clothes, but fortunately, Kekai Kotaki, perhaps best known as the lead concept artist for Guild Wars 2, has found a happy medium. He's drawn up some redesigns for everyone's favorite Kamen Riders and Super Sentai that add a fashionable flair to their uniforms. Check 'em out below!
