To frame their fearful symmetry.

Those WATCHMEN costume designs doing the rounds? Uniformly awful (arf! I crack me up...), bar this.
Though The Comedian looks close enough, too. But Ozymandias? Ugh. Some day, some clever sod is going to realise that you don't have to follow the lead of Tim Burton and Joel Shumacher when it comes to this stuff.

I was about to complain that these images are so heavily Photoshopped it's hard to tell what the characters will look like in the finished film...but then I remembered this guy's last film actually looked like that anyway.

How are we going to take Ozymandias seriously without a purple and gold outfit?

The bit I miss the most is the headband.

He's wearing a headband - it's just not wrapped all the way around his head, I'm guessing that it's more like something caeser would've worn, in asterix rather than the single gold ring.

But the point is, he should look like a colour-blind man going to a toga party, dammit!
