Wait a second, Kitty Pryde really used to dress that way?

At first, I thought this was simply a bizarrely creative costume Maris Wicks created for Kitty Pryde:

But no, Kitty really briefly dressed that way:

After seeing her perform in concert, Kitty designed herself a costume modeled after Dazzler’s. Much to the X-Men’s amusement, Kitty wore a golden skintight suit, a similar pair of roller skates and some ballet leotards on top of it. [Uncanny X-Men #149] Xavier, however, was not happy with this design and reminded Kitty that one had to earn the right for an individual costume, so she returned to wearing the standard outfit.
