Ever since the new Supergirl TV series started, starring the beautiful, talented and all-round cheeky and friendly super lady Melissa Benoist, we wanted the new costume in our costume collection, but we wanted it to be perfect. We started it in 2016, and two years later we’re so proud to have the designer of our specific costume herself, Annabelle “Belle” Collins, model it for us. Annabelle is a long time cosplayer, and also a keen costume designer in her job, she’s studied SuperMel’s costume extensively, and ours is the first completed one she’s done. The thing that makes Annabelle special is she was mentored 13 years ago at fashion school by Colleen Atwood, the legend lady who originally designed SuperMel’s costume for CBS & DC Comics!

She’s nailed it, don’t you think? She even got Mel’s feisty balled knuckles “ready-to-fight, don’t-push-me” pose spot on! We present SuperBelle Zor-El! Heh, that has a nice ring to it!

It’s great having a dedicated designer and cosplayer in our team as we normally have different people making and modelling them. Kana has designed two, and she has two designer friends, as well as our models who actually do the roleplay, such as Yurie.

And the big beauty of the CBS/CW clone costume is it’s a plastic composite material, with leather trim and diamond S shield, as well as the leather thigh high boots, so it’ll stand up to messy KryptoGunge better than our other Spandex and Lycra costumes, the colours tend to change on those 🙂

This shoot isn’t quite KryptoGunge, but it’s still sexy and messy for fans of WAM and Superheroine peril. Yurie wanted to get messy after she saw Kana trapped by Mika and me in our edible KryptoGunge.

So we’ve shot a little peril video of her writhing around in gloop in our SuperLady costume, and here’s a small vidcap of her covered in gloop, pretending to be weakened by it, even though it isn’t KryptoGunge:

She played as good a part as Kana did, and I wanted Kana to go get her Supergirl costume on and jump in there with her and wrestle her, but it was a solo test, and a very erotic test it was! 🙂

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 🙂

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 🙂
