The first images of Melissa Benoist, in her full Supergirl costume have been revealed ahead of filming the upcoming series pilot for CBS.
Costume designer Colleen Atwood, who also designs the cosumes for Arrow and The Flash, had a very specific idea when she created this new Supergirl look:
“In designing Supergirl, I wanted to embrace the past, but more importantly, thrust her into the street-style action hero of today.”
I think she nailed it. It pulls together a look that’s a little more sedate and serious, but still young and optimistic. Plus, the boots. I love the boots.
Head after the break to see the full costume.
