Following Adrianne Palicki’s (G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Friday Night Lights) kick-ass debut on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. last night, Marvel has released the first official image of the actress fully suited up in her “Tactical Suit” as Mockingbird.
Not only that, but we also got some concept art, giving us a clearer look at the outfit. And now that she’s SPOILERS a full member of S.H.I.E.L.D. again, after an undercover stint as an Hydra agent, Bobbi Morse is now back to being a blonde. But do blondes really have more fun?
Costume designer Ann Foley explained how this suit actually plays homage to the character’s comic-book roots:
“It's important to me to keep certain elements, but we had to change it, obviously, for practicality, because it had to fit into our world. It had to have a kind of tactical feeling to it too so that it made sense in our universe.
She's got rivets that are in the straps across her chest, and those are there as a tribute to the buttons that go down the side of her [most recent] costume [in the comics], as well as the colors that we were using, [which] are a tribute as well. Her colors are navy blue and white with a little bit of black in there, [but] white would not have been pretty on camera so we changed it to grey. [We] still tried to maintain the original style of what was in the comic book because [with] that white panel that goes up her center and down her legs, [so] we've mirrored that in her costume but in gray instead of white.”
So have a look at the gallery below, and let us know what you guys think of Mockingbird’s costume. Also, how did you like the introduction of Bobbi Morse on last night’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?
