Today actress Melissa Benoit shared on Twitter our first look at the Supergirl costume that she will be wearing in the upcoming television series heading to CBS later this year. There are two images shown, a full body shot and close up head shot. The Supergirl costume was designed by Colleen Atwood, who also designed the costumes for TV’s The Flash and Arrow. Atwood said in a statement, “I wanted to embrace the past, but more importantly, thrust her into the street-style action hero of today.”
So what do you think? It is great to see that they went with a traditional Supergirl look and it actually looks like Supergirl too!
Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El (Supergirl), Mehcad Brooks as Jimmy Olsen, Laura Benanti as Kara’s/Supergirl’s mother, Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant, Jeremy Jordan as Winslow Schott, Faran Tahir as The Commander; plus Dean Cain and Helen Slater in undisclosed roles. It will premiere this fall on CBS.
