How to Ruin a Costume: Take 2

Several years ago Spider-Man debuted with the Norman Osborne the Green Goblin as the villain. As you can see, the Green Goblin has a very simple and effective character design:It's an evil goblin with pumpkin bombs on a bat glider. That simple. So they go ahead and brilliantly cast Willem Dafoe, who without even the help of make-up looks like an evil goblin. But the powers behind the movie were able to translate the above design into this Power Ranger looking mess of a costume, officially deemed the WORST costume in film history:
But unknown to the general public is that the Green Goblin returns in the form of Norman Osborne's son Harry. The film team is given a second chance to improve the costume and redeem themselves. What have they done to "improve" the costume for the upcoming Spider-Man 3?
Yep, that's right, a snowboarder. A FREAKING SNOWBOARDER! Sam Raimi has officially achieved the impossible. He has surpassed himself, broken his own record, and created the WORST WORST costume of all time. He now owns the top two slots bumping Ben Affleck's Daredevil down to a comfortable 3.
