Colleen Atwood Making Costume

Minor Arrow Spoiler ahead: How about that new Arrow costume at the end of the Flash/Arrow double episode?! Pretty awesome! If you like how the Flash looks, and the recent changes to the Arrow's uniform, chances are you are going to like to hear that Colleen Atwood is working with familiar cohorts, Ali Adler & Greg Berlanti on Supergirl's costume!

Here is a little bit about Colleen thanks to IMDB:

Colleen Atwood was born on September 25, 1948 in Yakima, Washington, USA. She is known for her work on The Silence of the Lambs (1991), Big Fish (2003) and Edward Scissorhands (1990).

What makes me so excited about it is two fold.  First of all, I love the costumes from Arrow and Flash.  They fit their respective powers perfectly.  Secondly, Supergirl's costume has gone through a lot of variation through the years and many times that variation leads to scrutiny over the exposure to the female form. Colleen Atwood is a seasoned professional and a woman.  I know she is going to give Supergirl a costume that is perfect for her character, tribute to the comic cannon, and still something to dazzle at for all you fans out there.

My continued thanks to Michael McDonnell for pointing this news out.  I think it was easily overlooked with the news that 'Supergirl' could live in the Arrow and Flash universe!
