I was even more in love with Melissa as soon as I saw this promo pic. When CBS announced they had hired her for auditions, I knew she’d be good, from her Glee days. I was dreading what they’d come up with for the costume, I had a niggling feeling they’d do something like the horrid DC 52 comic outfit. But, I saw her, and the new costume, and I just can’t get enough of her, take a look:

Just one word…. WOOOW! They’ve kept the look of the 80’s outfit that Helen Slater wore, with the V skirt beltline, the cape still flows nicely over her shoulders. They’ve sexified her by giving her thigh high leather boots over the top of a pair of dark tights, then given the main outfit a sexy armoured look like the Man of Steel one. The diamond S emblem looks really nicely finished, I suspect it’s leather. I was really surprised, and turned on looking at her. The only issue I have is that the whole outfit looks too dark, it clashes with the old Superman III film where the evil one had darker colours in his outfit, so it makes SuperMel look evil. Not really complaining though 🙂

Anyhow, I still wanna be rescued by her! I just hope they do a heroine peril scene in the new film like the 80’s one where Supergirl gets lost on an evil planet, and gets trapped in a pit of kryptonite gunge after slipping into it, trying desperately to wade out of it as she gets weaker and weaker. I would hate to see that lovely costume get messy too much, but hope they have a backup, because hey, the heroines can’t always win, right?

This sexy costume was designed by three-time Oscar-winner Colleen Atwood, so I might give her a bell if we need any costumes making for KanaPhotographics, because she sure knows how to make a superheroine costume functional, sexy and alluring 🙂
