I kept getting ready to go in for one last hurrah yesterday, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it. It actually triggered a panic attack (but to be fair it wasn't the sole factor, merely the trigger).
This is the early images of one of my all-time favorite characters of mine, Oujo Senshi Kasei (which loosely translates to Warrior Princess Fireborn). I'll have to dig through files to post a better image eventually.
I had completely expected ridicule for having a Sentai inspired hero since I often saw a lot of ridicule for Power Ranger inspired heroes back in the day. But I was amazed at how many compliments I got. She was a Broadsword Scrapper, so not only did her alternate costumes resemble "power-up modes", but so too would her sword improve with the various power-ups, including one of the Tier 9 VIP rewards that let her have flame wings and sword to really go with the Firebird/Phoenix motif.
