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...

Kind of an updated helen slater style costume just as I was hoping.

Stunning.

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.
