With the upcoming Season 3 premiere of Supergirl on The CW October 9th, I thought about how every superhero has an iconic super-outfit that becomes synonymous with the character. It’s part of their identity, and it often aids them in their world-saving missions. It’s important to recognize that what Supergirl wears is a tool that assists her when fighting those who wish to do her city harm, not a fashion statement. In some canons, it’s even a lasting symbol of her Kryptonian heritage.

Because Kara Zor-El is so powerful, she needs her suit to match what she does – one that can keep up with her. And while we know that her friend, Winn, helped to make her suit, that can’t be regular fabric that’s holding up at the speed she’s soaring through the air. While there have been some Supergirl stories in which she can create a small force field around her for protection, other stories mention that her costume is made out of Kryptonian fabric.

So while we don’t know much about what this super suit is made of, we can talk about what it would have to do to be the practical tool Supergirl needs.

The Cape

Kara’s cape is the only part of her costume that we know about in detail. At first, Winn thought that a cape wouldn’t look good. But we all learned pretty quickly that fashion does not matter anywhere near as much as function when you’re fighting bad guys – especially when you’re flying. The famous red cape that Supergirl adorns actually aids with aerodynamics, much like the lycra skinsuit a race cyclist wears does. The cape can cause turbulence in the air that allows her to slow down just enough to bank and make hard turns in the air.

After the cape was punctured by gunfire, Winn made a new cape out of a structured polymer composite. This made the cape much sturdier and harder to tear. And that may have worked just fine if James Olsen hadn’t brought Kara a gift from her cousin, Superman (aka Clark Kent, just in case you aren’t in the know.) The Kryptonian blanket Clark was wrapped in for his journey to Earth is made of much more durable material than anything we have on this planet, and is therefore an even better tool for Kara.

Qualities of her iconic (possibly Kryptonian) suit

As for the rest of her crime fighting attire, Kara needs something a little more advanced than spandex, or even Kevlar, to help her out. Kara has a lot of powers, and her suit needs to hold up in some pretty intense situations. For a lot of reasons, her suit would have to be not only heat resistant, but also fireproof.

The first of these reasons is her heat vision. She’s not only sending beams of heat directly into her line of sight, she’s also warming the air around her. With that strong heat in such close vicinity, a lot of fabrics would fall apart. (The melting point of spandex is around 450 Β° F, and Kara easily melts lead at over 600Β°.)

On top of her heat vision, Kara can fly so quickly, she can break the sound barrier. That’s over 700 mph. That friction would surely cause overheating and cause Earth fabric to rip or burn. Think about the super suit worn by Barry Allen, aka The Flash. It’s an enhanced prototype firefighting suit that Star Labs developed. He needs something fire resistant because of how fast he can run. And we all know from the Flash/Supergirl crossover that Kara can give Barry a run for his money.

Oh, and her suit would also have to be bulletproof. So this isn’t just some pretty skirt and a cape. This super suit is a scientific marvel, possibly from another planet, that can endure a lot more that you’d expect. SuperMel looks pure sweetness in it, and of course badass, when she’s in kickass mode! I grew up in the Helen Slater 1984 movie era, which was where the current TV series costume gets its looks, so it is a design I can relate to, and like.

And that’s why it is absolutely perfect for a kickass hero like Supergirl.

Kana has been doing Manga and Anime artwork for quite some time, and often does comics with her drawings. I recently experienced a different, and rather naughty, side to her artiste ability. Kana made me a really nice birthday card with a rather cute ‘n’ naughty Supergirl on the front, winking at me and lifting her top and skirt up, pouting sweetly. I was amazed when I saw her:

She’s always been a good artist, and usually does manga and Anime, so this new pin-up style really amazed me. They always say if you want to get inside an artist’s mind, watch what she doodles. It’s certainly true, if this gorgeous lady has come from Kana’s mind as her interpretation of what a Superwoman is, then I want more! Her muscle tone, curves, midriff detail, face and cheeky wink ‘n’ pout expression and the detail of her costume and cape are perfect!

UPDATE: She’s actually a picture of Kana’s ex Ariel who she met at the gym in 1998, before her and I got together in 2002. Kana got her to cosplay for her for a party years ago, Ariel loved it and pulled this cheeky pose just before they had their ahem “role-play fun time” back home later! Kana says she never forgot the pose, and drew her to keep her memory alive. Awwww!

Take a look at this pic of Supergirl Ariel being surprised at PowerGirl embracing her and cheekily lifting her skirt that I found in her artbook, as another glimpse into the sexy, strong superheroine lady filled mind of Ms. Ishikawa:

You can tell from these that she’s a wild bisexual lady that loves hot, strong, toned superheroines, isn’t afraid to show it and I love her for it. She expresses herself really well in music, and artwork, as well as when we roleplay and cosplay together, and she turns into my very own real muscly, toned Kana Zor-El, busting out Karate moves on the punchbag in her Supergirl costume, cape and boots.

Thanks SuperKana honey, I love you so much, you’re my amazing SuperLady xxxx

Didn’t we say a while back we’d introduce a sweet Japanese Supergirl? Today we just shot three new sets featuring Yurie, our cute new Japanese heroine to join our super lineup! There’s something about a cute innocent Japanese honey in a superheroine costume, cape and boots that make my heart race, SuperKana Zor-El will vouch for that! She might be cute on the outside, but as our promos show, she’s a cute kickass caped goddess!

Yurie (short for Yuriko) is an ex Martial Arts student of Kana’s who spent three years learning the arts of self defence, Kana became really close to her as a friend, she has now backed up her skills with the iconic and equally colourful cape, costume and boots of everyone’s favourite female sci-fi superheroine! She loved every minute of it, and we love her <3

These promos are full size, click them for the full image, feel free to save them too, and let SuperYurie save you in your dreams πŸ™‚ She blew us away when she jumped into the costume for us, the colours really suit her:

Set 1: SuperYurie kicks alien facehugger/lobster ass!

This set shows how Yurie has turned from a sweet innocent Japanese angel into a kickass caped and booted superheroine, all thanks to her real life training with Kana at White Tiger Martial Arts Academy. An alien lobster/crabby/facehugger thing appears, and she kicks it straight to crustacean hell, all the while looking really mean and sexy throwing high kicks! But, in the full set, it comes back and illuminates itself with a Kryptonite coating, revealing itself as a KryptoKrab (TM KanaPhotographics), weakening our cute heroine. What will happen next?



Set 2: SuperYurie is cornered and conquered by her evil clone SuperAkiko!

In this set SuperYurie gets a surprise, out of nowhere an evil (and rather curvy and cuddly!) clone Supergirl appears who goes by SuperAkiko, and proceeds to conquer and defeat SuperYurie. Can Yurie survive? She must try to, SuperAkiko would wreak havoc if she got away:

With the KryptoNecklace round her neck, SuperYurie must be doomed…..or must she? Find out when they’re released! We are actually shooting two different endings…..

UPDATE Oct 2017 – Set 3 – SuperYurie is confronted by Catwoman & the Alien Facehugger KryptoCrab

Catwoman and Supergirl are long term enemies, and SuperYurie has luckily managed to avoid being prowled on! Until now, that is! Catwoman catches up with her after the facehugging KryptoKrab weakens her, trapping her for Catwoman to tease and play with her new mouse in a cape!

Once Catwoman catches up with her, she befriends SuperYurie, and places a KryptoNecklace round her neck, weakening her. Catwoman is then free to toy with her new caped mouse as she pleases. A lick here, a scratch there, or maybe worse?

We’re trying a new mix of heroine peril, as the superheroine always winning can get boring. Just ask SuperKana Zor-El after I trapped her in KryptoGunge recently, she wasn’t expecting her superhero to turn nasty on her (lovingly, of course, I wanted to see if she still had her acting skills, which she did!)

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….

Melissa-Benoist-Supergirl-4

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

PARENTAL GUIDANCE: This film is a PORN parody, and is NOT intended for family viewing. The images in this post are not extreme but some do contain sexual intention

Surfing the web I came across this film from Extreme Comixxx. It’s a Supergirl porn parody, with Alanah Rae as Supergirl. I haven’t watched it yet, but the promo pictures on the site blew me away, Alanah and her costume are simply stunning. It features Superman too, played by Andy San Dimas (I think!!) Look at these pics!

I love Alanah as Supergirl, and I also love the Superman costume! I’d swap with this guy anyday, his outfit looks quite a bit sexier than mine, just without the official S emblem like mine has. In this film I think there’s even some girl girl action with Supergirl in her uniform, she’s a superheroine, but also a super-naughty heroine! Check this out:

It brought back a dream I had of Kassie and Mika making love together. Kassie was wearing her new Supergirl outfit that we’re having made for her, I can’t wait for it to be reality!

The promo pics are massive, much bigger than these here on TideLog, here’s the page: http://extremecomixxx.com/SuperGirlPR/

Here’s another smoking hot Supergirl set from UltraSexyHeroines. This time it’s lovely Jenna Jones looking really hot and fiesty in her uniform:

As always on TideLog, I’ve left the naked and topless ones out, but you can download my siterip torrent from the Pirate Bay, just do a search for UltraSexyHeroines Siterip July 2010. There’s also an update pack of pics from July to December 2010.

UltraSexyHeroines is a good site. They have sexy women, in tight shiny spandex superheroine pictures. That is about it. Their customer support is crap, their pictures are at a resolution that was used back in 1980, and the quality is degraded. The webmaster is ignorant, andΒ  blocks comments on the official blog if you complain. Oh, and some of the girls on the site have fake boobies, which I’m not really a fan of.

Bailey is one of those girls. Why she had to go ruin her figure I don’t know. But, those boobies seem to make this shiny seductive costume sooo much sexier, and you end up wanting Bailey to come rescue you, then you can have her exercise her dominant powers on you! Phwoar!! Take a look! I’ve left the topless ones out, remember, TideLog is a clean blog, so sexy goes, but not topless or nude.

I just wish these pictures were proper high res, we’re talking 1920×1200, but the guys who own UltraSexyHeroines and SuperSexyHeroines never listen, even though they claim to. I joined several times, on both sites, but all the SuperSexyHeroines guys seem to be bothered about is doing their comic strip rubbish. They don’t listen, I don’t join, and I share their content on my blog!!
