Yeah, maybe. But I had to go with a "Love" on this one. There's just something about this Costume that absolutely works for me. Nice color scheme, well balanced, stands the test of time. Love it.

Actually, with a better mask, I would rate this costume a winner. I know it's supposed to be a flaming dragon or something, but I think it just looks funny.

That said, I have to admit Sunfire probably wouldn't look right without it.

4 - Even though it's odd, I like it. I feel like the mask would look better if it showed his nose, though I can't be sure until I see it.

Gave it a meh...mainly because it's over designed in my opinion.

Not sure if showing the nose helps or hurts the mask:

 I tried going full-mask as well just for fun:

Thoughts?

I went with a Like. It's a fun and distinctive costume. Definitely a little busy and it's got a number of elements going on. The flames push the limits I think.
I do like the mask as is. It's very unique.

Actually, I kind of like the one with the nose showing.

Personally, I hate this costume. 

On the body you've got stripes and flames AND ripples.  The orange and yellow feel like they're placed haphazardly and there's so much going on that doesn't really work together.

And I really hate that mask.

It looks like he was wearing a sun-motif skullcap mask and flew into a large moth.  The lack of nose coupled with the eyeshape gives him an almost reptilian appearance to me and the overall effect of everything is very off-putting.
