also there is discussion in the production team as to the idea that she should have contacts as well or she should stay with her natural eye colour.

Costume has been delayed as there is some thoughts floating around that she should not have a cape rather than have one.

WAIT WHAT!!!! No cape! that seems ridiculous, why wouldn't she have a cape? Also, wig? like will the Character have a wig or does Melissa just wear a wig during filming?


If they are true to the comicbook, then Linda will wear a dark wig to hide her natural blonde. So maybe she keeps lightening her hair and then wears a dark wig as Linda? The only way that could make sense is if they have decided to include the brunette wig as part of the character's identity (and not just something Melissa does as the actress). Like Clark's glasses.

So bizarrely, Melissa has to dye her hair blonde so she can wear a wig that matches her natural hair color (as Linda).

Anyone see this differently?


the info that i have is that the wig is going to be blonde, for when she needs to be SG and her highlighted hair is going to be the normal hair colour for the series, remember the wig is for production reasons only. the blond highlights are a hint, a clue to her alter ego.

Fats


That's really kind of neat. Cute even. Having LInda's highlights provide a hint of her otherself. Almost as if the Supergirl inside is trying to shine out through Linda.

I have to say, I'm impressed with the way the producers and writers are thinking. Presuming this is a good example of how they are approaching the show. Its a little outside the box, but in a very creative and positive way.

The cape thing is something else. That's a bigger deal for me than the skirt. Hope they decide in favor of it.

The dialogue, transcribed below, reveals that Supergirl will wear a cape and costume provided for her by Wynn; it also confirms that Superman will have some sort of presence on the show, even if its only in passing mention. It's possible that the dialogue provided to actors to audition with did not come from a shooting script, but the fact that all the audition videos have been yanked gives their content additional weight.

Wynn: I can't believe I'm actually in your apartment.
Supergirl: Wynn, if we're going to use our lunch half-half to help me with my super-hearing we need to work fast.

Wynn: I'm still not sure how all this is happening. Maybe the brownie I ate belonged to my roommate.

Supergirl: My abilities come from your Sun. The planet I was born on...

Wynn: Woah! Wait! Hold on, you're from another planet?

Supergirl: Krypton. Yeah, so is my cousin.

Wynn: You and him? You're related?

Supergirl: Our dad's were brothers. I'm going to need you to focus. I want your help. I told you, I don't a thing about fighting crime.

Wynn: Please, you got the hard part down. First, you need...

Supergirl: A costume.

Wynn: It's called a suit.

First post in ages, just have to weigh in and say I hope they keep the cape!! It's the most "super" part about the costume - totally crucial in my opinion.

Supergirl must have a cape. End of!

Overall I like the costume but I do have a few nit picks:

- Knee high boots? Huh?
- The waist seems a little loose, like it is just hanging there. I would have expected it to be a bit more form fitting like it is around the chest.

Other than those two issues, I quite like it. i know some "Traditionalists" will have problems with the colors but I do not.

As a "traditionalist" let me just say I have no problem with this. I like it!

Is it light/bright in color - no. However - Melissa adds a lightness to the character all by herself. Are tri-color bright characters not "modern" and suitable for mainstream and TV - I guess not anymore.

After N52 and some of the rumors about them going "non traditional" I am so-so-so relieved. I'm so looking forward to this show. Yes!

Not better than I imagined, but better than I thought they would do! :) I like it, a perfect blend of the old and MOS outfit. Like the red piping and S.

Melissa looks quite fit as well.....fills out the sleeves rather well, I must say!

The "lighted" version of the same pic looks even better:



Take a bow, Ms. Atwood!!!

I like it a lot.

Could have been a bit brighter but hey she is instantly recognizable.

This is perhaps the coolest thing about it.....instantly recognizable as a SuperFamily member, yet different at the same time, IMO. I cannot say how happy I am at the reveal!

That does look better. Still can't say I'm a fan of the knee high boots though. I like the colors though.

I really need some time to process (and work/leaving soon), so can't do that yet.

But honestly. Why are the images so dark? haven't they heard of lighting?

Agree with that.....I wish they would ditch the leggings and shorten the boots if I had my wish. She has great legs, IMO...

In love. I figured it would be sexy. Boots might be protective. Would have preferred shorter thigh high but other than that I will watch the living hell out of this show just to see her in costume.

Great pics, I love it. I really didn't think we'd see the skirt, so I'm really pleased. So glad the people in charge appear to like and understand the character :)

Ive been keeping a close eye on comments people are making about that show all over the Internet. it seems like there was a lot of cynicism about the show initially but with every new casting and now these pictures enthusiasm and buzz has grown.

Melissa really IS Supergirl :-)

when i first saw the dark photo i thought that it looks like a bad cosplay... but when you see the lighted version of the photo you can see all the colors and its looks great... lest see how she looks as Kara Danvers.

Yeah.

i think if the idea was "This is the exact same outfit but no cape...."then well its just a strange dress with boots. As the expression goes-it ties it together.
