    I do wish that she has the red gloves and boots from the comics. The pose was awkward and the cape looks weird. But I'm glad that they're keeping the wig and the mask itself looks decent.

    Hah!! I thought this was fan-art at first, because usually fan-art is so much better than the canon costumes! I like this!

    The mask and the hair are symbolic Batwoman. The bat device on the chest looks great. Those alone get a 10. The rest of the suit lags a little behind at a 7 to 8.

    I wish that was leather. I think the clothe look comes off as a little cheap/cheesy looking. She's a superhero, she should be in leather!
    I will agree that I think she does need red gloves and boots, but I'm not going to die over that either.
    The cape could be a little longer and lack the scalloped edges, but laying down flat I probably won't mind at all.

    Altogether, I give the suit an 8 on the Pleasing Scale.:D

    Awkward pose, but the costume looks decent to me.

    It looks like they wanted her to spread the cape wide so as to achieve a bat-shaped silhouette and then chose to release the one that captured her mid-extension.

    They should've had her a similar pose to this

    But at least the promos can only get better from here...right?

    That's iconic Supergirl/Man pose. I would rather they had her doing some poses from the BW comic. Although the problem with staged shots is that they often look staged.

    I don't hate it at all. Its a good start. Costumes are tweaked throughout a series run. If her show gets picked up outside of the crossover, it is probably safe to assume there will be a few modifications as the series progresses.

    Definitely. It's far better than I dared hope. I'm actually pretty impressed.

    Aye, I agree about the suit. I like what they have, but I guess because it may only be used in the crossover, they may have decided to hold back a bit on it?

    Can still hope that when (if) they get a series green lit that they'll up the ante on the suit, as seeing this on screen would be awesome!

    Her hair under the cowl looks absolutely ridiculous. Halloween costume bad.

    I don't see this show lasting long. Maybe it can because of the crossover but just as a singlular character, the general audience probably won't give a damn about it

    I honestly think the show will do well based on the fact it's a bat character, this character has a cult following in the LGBT community and that it's on CW

    Based on the one photo we have, Batwoman’s hair seems fine. Granted, it’s of a vibrant/unnatural hue. And it’s sticking out of a cowl (the practicality of which we might question.:cwink:) But this is a stylization and motif that’s been directly and accurately copied from the comics (apparently). Looks like hair to me. :shrug:

    It's the front, it looks so unnatural. The artwork looks fine but that thing is out of control fake-looking lol

    Fair enough. I find the original/comic book design of Batwoman’s cowl is somewhat odd to begin with. And I’m not convinced that real hair - sticking out from a hole in the top of a “helmet” :ebr: - would look any different or more natural. :cwink:

    Batwoman's cowl doesn't look very good. It looks like a budget Halloween costume.

    I like the pic but that does look more like a mask than a full cowl.

    It think it looks okay. Seeing it up close, I wish they had gone with a cowl more like Batwoman's than Batman's, and makes me hope if this goes to series they'll touch it up. If a series doesn't go forward, then this is just a temporary costume. I would hope a full series suit would be more true to the comics.

    It's not as great as Supergirl's, but not as bad as the Flash's.:oldrazz:

    I don't know what is worse. That it looks so cheap, or that they just cut off the front of a Batman Halloween mask. As it looks nothing like Batwoman's cowl. It also looks oversized.

    It does look a bit Batman-ish.
