If you’ve been watching the CW’s Arrow series, you know that Laurel Lance has been slowly transforming herself into Black Canary. The network released the first official photo of Katie Cassidy in her full Black Canary garb, and it looks good.
Granted, this isn’t fishnet stockings Black Canary, or even the pirate boots and shoulder pad costume from the ’80s, but this costume really works from the female hero perspective. It isn’t overly sexualized, it looks functional, and if you didn’t know she was wearing a wig, you wouldn’t know that this was Katie Cassidy.
Bravo, CW on a great costume!
