In this edition of Who Wore It Better, the same costume is worn in 2 Venom Mob movies, one by a supporting actor and one by a first tier Venom. The costume in my opinion is not the best color scheme for either actor as yellow and brown are not flattering on anyone.
The first image is from the 1979 film Magnificent Ruffians a.k.a. The Destroyers. The actor is #1 Venom Lu Feng as the villain Yuan Ying Fei, The Golden Sword. I understand the meaning of the yellow in this costume is to remind us that he is the Golden Sword and his techniques match rotations of the sun. Also, Yuan Ying Fei is the center of the universe in the small town he controls and the townspeople cannot do anything without his approval and/or knowledge.
Wan Seung-Lam sears the same costume in the 1981 film Sword Stained with Royal Blood as the supporting character Sha. Sha is second in command to Master Rong, the chief of Lung Yau School. Even though Sha is a supporting character, his costume also shows his rank in relation to the men he has brought with him to retrieve the stolen taels.
I am a Lu Feng fan so I believe he wears it better even though it is not a flattering costume for either gentlemen. Your turn to decide who wore it better. Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
