It’s hard work being a superhero, even a pretend one, as Melissa will tell you! I found some more pics of her, this time in action on set, and I can kind of relate to her as an actress. Every time I’ve been to ComicCon I’ve had to do action role play for numerous children at the events, running around in a sweaty bodysuit, trunks, boots and REALLY heavy pleather cape pretending to capture baddies is EXHAUSTING but great fun, especially the time I wrestled the ultimate X-Men goddess Rogue in the sweltering San Diego heat, she really pushed me!

Except Mel probably has to do the same scene over and over again, following several cries of “CUT!” and her cape looks just as heavy as my Superman Returns one, and probably just as expensive!

Melissa-Benoist-SuperMel-on-setShe looks pure Super in the daylight, and shattered! That look says, “Phew, another rescued victim safe with the paramedics!” Let’s just hope not all of them need medical attention! It’s probably her fault they needed an ambulance, she’s just too smokingly beautiful. If only she was REALLY Supergirl….

SuperMel, please rescue me! I wouldn’t mind a kiss of life from you, but have a rest first hun, you look puffed out 🙂 If any of my readers say they don’t want her to fly them home, I’ll eat the lot of you! 🙂

I found this picture while looking through Kana’s KanaPhotographics shoots for new material, updating the site, and my heart melted. This is what makes a real Superwoman in my eyes. Kana shot this picture at ComicCon three years ago, and there’s a really heartwarming story behind it:

Cute-Superwoman-babysitting-so-adorableThis little girl had got lost from her parents. She found Superwoman, who came to her rescue, and took it upon herself to be responsible for the girl, and proceeded to babysit her, whilst they looked for her parents. Superwoman kept her safe the whole time, even posing for pictures with her. The little girl was really at ease with her hero. They both found the girl’s parents, who rewarded her with £200, which Superwoman then donated to a children’s charity. A real human superheroine!

This is what really makes me wish Superwoman really existed, and ladies like the one here really deserve to wear her costume, she’s a real life superheroine in my eyes. A really big heartfelt “Awwwww” is in order. If I ever see this Super Goddess at a convention in the future I’m taking her to dinner, she deserves a medal, and lives up to her idol’s standards 🙂 I can see that little girl following in her footsteps someday when she’s older, becoming Superwoman at a convention, rescuing a little girl herself.

Awwwww, it’s what real humans are supposed to be like. I idolise Superman, and try to be the same as he would, except  without the superpowers. Looking out for neighbours, rescuing lost kids, looking after women, animals, and helping the elderly. It makes me tick, even out of my costume and cape, it’s what I feel a human should do, look out for fellow humans, even if it means putting yourself in danger 🙂

Goes by the name Tori. This outfit was acquired from a fancy dress shop, and looks like it was self made by someone, it is pretty cool, but the logo could do with being brightened up a bit, or remade using CAD. The G (for Galactic) is backwards, so we’re not sure if we should make her the BAD Galactic Goddess, or the good one…. You might be forgiven for thinking her costume is very similar to Superwoman. It is, but Galactic Goddess’s job is to protect the outer universe from alien life, whilst Superwoman mainly focuses on life on Earth. If any baddies get past Galactic Goddess and actually get to Earth, Superwoman will deal with them.I’ve actually come up with a partial storyline for a shoot and video that’s quite unique, involving both messy wrestling, catfighting, and the appearance of my lovely friend Hannah in her Rogue outfit.

Galactic Goddess has always liked Superwoman and has fantasized about fighting her, she decides one day to see if Superwoman can be rubbed up the wrong way, and lets a load of Aliens get to Earth by deliberately oversleeping one day. Keep reading past the pics for more:

Superwoman starts to question Galactic Goddess’s skills, gets angry at her for slacking, and sets off outside Earth, through Space, to find her and find out what’s going on and why there’s an influx of aliens getting to Earth. Superwoman finds Galactic Goddess in her space cave, they have a discussion, which inevitably turns into a heated superheroine vs. superheroine argument. They start fighting, and Galactic Goddess lures Superwoman towards a pit in her cave, which has a special gunge substance bubbling away. It is Galactic Goddess’s special bath lotion to protect her skin from Alien rays, but it is harmful to Superwoman. Neither heroine knows this until they end up sploshing and fighting in it, still in uniform. Aliens lose their harmful rays when past the Earth’s atmosphere, so Superwoman doesn’t need to be protected from them. Superwoman suddenly starts weakening, screaming in pain while writhing in agony in the gloop. Rogue (from X-Men, Hannah plays her) is Superwoman’s friend, she hears her ultrasonic screams, and runs at lightning speed to find her.

Rogue immediately goes for Galactic Goddess, pulling her out of the gunge pit by her hair, punching and kicking her unconscious so she can help Superwoman. She kneels by the gunge pit, urging a semi-conscious Superwoman to come to her. Superwoman weakly swims through the gloop, and as Rogue is pulling her out and helping her to one side, Galactic Goddess comes round, and pushes Rogue and Superwoman back in, jumping in with them, Rogue’s sexy skintight green and yellow bodysuit and green boots are resistant to alien lotion gunge, so they both fight it out, slopping around, making a mess of each other’s heroine uniforms, and each other.

Superwoman manages to swim through the gloop to the opposite side while Rogue fights Galactic Goddess, she climbs out, and watches from the side, too weak to help, until she realizes if she takes her uniform off she’d be resistant to Galactic Goddess’s gunge bath lotion. This brings its own problems. Not only does she lose her superpowers, she becomes a normal human woman, in just her swimsuit, with only her normal human fitness to help her, which is nothing compared to her superpowers, but she needs to make sure her uniform will not get stolen, so as Rogue and Galactic Goddess fight it out distracted, she slips behind a big rock in Galactic’s space cave, takes off her Superwoman uniform and boots, and slips it under the rock, left in just her swimsuit. Now her uniform’s off she starts to recover, albeit only to human strength, but she knows she has to do something to help Rogue, her best girlfriend. Time to use human Karate skills, and hope for the best…..

You’ll have to wait for the picset and video to find out what happens, but Kana’s already accepted my script ideas. Keep in mind I’ve only just come up with it since we found the uniform, we have other shoots and videos planned first once our site is fully operational.

In the form of Alicia, a Supergirl fangirl! She saw Kana’s advertisement for superheroine models over on Cosplay.com, and she’s come to us with her very own Superwoman outfit, she made it all herself, and she looks an absolute angel. If Carlsberg did angelic superheroines, this is what they’d look like:

Alicia as Supergirl

Awwww, isn’t she super sexily, perfectly adorable? She’s all natural, there’s no Photoshopping involved at all, except from us putting the semi-transparent Kana Photographics logo in. If she looks perfect it’s down to Kana’s awesome makeup artist skills :). The shininess of her costume is real, and is so sensual on her. She made it all herself, it’s made of Spandex with a silk like cape. Superwoman looks best with a tight shiny Spandex costume, as it wraps around her delicate womanly curves. Her bootees are simply leg covers, she’s actually wearing high heeled shoes and not boots, with shiny tights underneath to make her cute slender legs shinier 🙂 I love the way she’s done the S diamond emblem’s background piece with gold rather than yellow, along with the gold on the fake skirt belt. The S itself is made of red leather, and looks spot on. There’s a gold S on the back of the cape which you can’t see in the pic.

To finish off, she has contact lenses in, the light from the lightbox reflected off them perfectly, her eyes look like marbles 🙂 Just hope she doesn’t switch the lasers on at you 😉 Sadly, if we do any messy fights with her, she won’t be wearing this outfit, she doesn’t want to ruin it, which we totally understand, so she’ll wear one of ours 🙂

I went looking on eBay to see if there were any tailors offering any 60’s or 70’s Supergirl costumes for our site as well as the Gumtree one we bought, and I came across this really gorgeous 80’s Superwoman outfit:

This sexy uniform would look absolutely scrumptious on a tall curvy leggy heroine, topped off with a pair of sexy Superwoman boots. It’s only £105 from eBay seller CostumeBuy2009, so costs a heck of a lot less than Kana’s £600 SuperWoman outfit, but still it looks really sexy. Superwoman and Superman’s uniforms never get old, they’re sexy, and my favourite colours.

I’m going to email the seller and see if he’d be willing to make a few of them for us, with all the wrestling and messy fighting our heroines are gonna be doing we’ll need spares 🙂
