That Scarlet Witch costume looked TACKY (which was obviously intentional). The headdress actually looked decent though, which is strange since no one thought it would work in live-action.

I feel whenever they do that (like Luke Cage with the yellow shirt and chains in the Netflix show), it's to show how, just because a costume might work on a page, it doesn't necessarily translate well directly into live-action (obvious exception being cosplayers, who are doing it as a hobby). We've pretty much known that though since the unreleased Roger Corman 'Fantastic Four' movie, where it looked like dress-up for a Halloween party.

Well, that's when you take the spirit of the character's costume and the color scheme and modernize it. Like for example, Spider-Woman's classic costume would never work on-screen. But the 2016 costume, which keeps the original color scheme and theme, absolutely would.

Not to mention if they managed to make Cap's look work on-screen, they can definitely nail any look. For example, while Jewel, Power Man and Hellcat are definitely too bright for Netflix's dark and edgy vibe, a navy blue, padded armor (like Daredevil's) with yellow accents and matching cowl would've been great for Trish, while keeping the colors and original spirit of Hellcat. Same for Jessica with a gray armor. And Luke with a yellow t-shirt, jeans and some chain-style jewelry like a necklace.

Wanda's classic costume could absolutely work as an armor if it was the outer layer over a base, pink layer that covered her from head to toe.
