That one is on my upload list for a while and it’s time to post this one!
This one features Jet Li VS some evil folks on motorcycles. And as you can guess, not all of them are men 😉
They all are wearing helmets with mirrored visors, so our evil biker chicks is fully concealed.

Here is the video:
Watch the video before you continue!
Yeah, not exactly a “traditional” unmasking, but I like the reveal.
It isn’t even clear to the audience that that biker is a woman, so the surprise is quite nice. Pretty sure that might be a man on the bike before she finally flew to the ground.
What I really don’t like is what happens after the reveal. He realizes it’s a woman he fighting and then he doesn’t want to fight her because he wouldn’t hit a woman.
What a sexist crap is that? Yeah, the movie is 20 years old, but damn, it’s just so disrespectful to her. She is a skilled fighter who wants to kill him and he doesn’t take her seriously.
And the whole thing to use the other woman to hit her….oh man. Silly, embarrassing comedy….in my opinion.
I cut the scene some seconds short to avoid problems with youtube. She falls on that metal bar and gets impaled what they show with a weird sort of (unbloody) x-ray animation as the metal thing goes through her heart.
Ok, the bad news is…..that was her only scene in this mask and costume in the entire show. What a wasted potential…. 🙁
The costume is pretty great! Also I love the mask, it disguises Raikou’s face well and the material is well chosen! Ok, the cowl could use a chin strap for security reasons…but ok, not a major flaw.
Would have been so great to have seen her in more scenes…especially if some bad guys would get curious to see the face under that mask! 😉
It’s great that some of the masked “henchfolks” are actually (masked!) henchWOmen! It’s a pretty cool trend that the bad guys nowadays employ female fighters as well for their evil deeds. 10-20 years ago you could barely find any henchWOmen at all. I like the masks that they are wearing, a nice bonus feature!
The scene is already pretty great, but if you know the context around it….it’s even better.

And here is the video:
I just love such a scene! Really great how he demands that she unmasks herself.
And her reaction is great as well! Her mouth open, barely visible under that net cloth over it. Her eyes show how afraid she is to lose her mask, how afraid that he will soon find out who is hiding underneath that mask.
And the great thing is: They know each other…..verrrrry well 😉 ! She is actually working with him in the agency with some …”benefits” included ;-).
But at the same time, she is also working with the bad guys! If he would see her unmasked face….she would be totally finished. For her, everything is at stake at that moment. And she sells that very well and it’s great that she buys herself some crucial seconds as she is really slowly unmasking herself. Also, her mask shows how serious she is with her masquerade. She uses black face paint around the eyes (more on that later), the eye openings on the mask are very small, and with that net cloth, you can barely see her mouth….a very effective mask.
Another plus point for me is the rare type of unmasking. It’s a foiled (forced) self unmasking. I love attempted unmaskings as well, and they are rather rare as most of the unmasking attempts are successful.
So, I do have two BONUS scenes for the visitors of this blog!
The first scene of the following video shows her and the other bad guy just before the scenes of the video above.
The second scene takes place some minutes later at the very end of the episode.
Yeah, sadly she doesn’t unmask herself onscreen, but this scene where she puts the mask on is not bad! Especially seeing her with these panda eyes….is a very rare sight!
I added the second scene to show you how she looks without the mask and also to show how close they (seemingly) are. But he has no idea that he pointed a gun right at her masked face earlier that day. 🙂
Wanna know from which episode of Alias this scene is?
If you don’t know these ones yet….you are very lucky as you now will see some great cosplay pictures!
And the chances are quite high that you will love these pictures 😉
(click on the picture to enlarge it to full size!)
I don’t think I have promised too much! 😉
The model looks stunning and I really like the costume! The cowl is really good as well.
I LOVE all the secret identity issues in many of the pictures. Looks like villainess Punchline found out somehow that Batgirl is Barbara Gordon, as we only have these pictures…we have to speculate how she did it.
The third picture is soooo great, Punchline with pictures of Batgirl and Barbara Gordon….while Batgirl has her cowl in her hands as she masks…or unmasks(?)….herself.
Pictures 6 and 7 are ….well…..fantastic! I love how Punchline presents the cowl of Batgirl triumphantly while the battle-bruised Batgirl realizes the predicament she is now in!
As Punchline knows her secret identity she is now totally at her mercy. Of course, there would be a way out of it for Batgirl if she can free herself…..but as a heroine, she can’t really kill a villain. Or can she? 😉
The last picture isn’t from that storyline, but I just love it as well!
Batgirl tied up, fighting against her restraints…while Harley and Poison Ivy are playing with her 😉
Love how Harley yanks at one Bat-ear while her other hand is toying with the chin strap of Batgirl’s cowl!
Looks like these two are curious……to find out who is hiding underneath that mask!
What I would give to have such a scene in a movie or TV show!!!! But sadly the big majority of the villains are not curious enough to unmask the hero/heroine.
And if they find out who is behind the mask….they do it without yanking the mask off (I hate when that happens).
I didn’t include any scenes from the comics or fetish videos…..but still, I came up with quite some scenes I wanted to have in the trailer.
In the end, I included 83 scenes from the movies and TV shows. As the scenes average a little over 3 seconds…the trailer reached nearly 5 minutes in total. A little longer than I initially wanted it to be.
I did cut some scenes a little shorter, but I didn’t want to delete whole scenes out of it.
All of these scenes can be found on this blog….with some digging as the blog is around 8 years old by now…… many of them in the Hall of Fame.
I took a song with the PERFECT lyrics that I found a while ago and edited it down to a length that would fit twice in the trailer.
Hope you folks like it!
All my favorite scenes from the movies and shows are in them! Some scenes aren’t my favorite, they are just a “stand-in” for my favorite movies or TV shows.
Song: “Masquerade” by “Lolita KompleX” (shortened version, played twice)
Ok, I guess and hope that many of you already know the Black Scorpion TV show…. and since I didn’t cover the show with enough posts in the past…I wanna change that now.
The show is in my Hall of Fame and if you are into masked women, this TV show is an absolute MUST have!
A little extract from my post in the Hall of Fame (more info on the show can be found there):
I remember how I stumbled upon this show in the early 2000s.
This show was never shown here, but at some point, I read about the show and saw some pictures.
I immediately bought the DVD box set in the US and it took a while to get the Season box set to arrive here.
I also had to buy a DVD player that could handle region 1 DVDs. It was a pretty expensive endeavor, but damn, it was worth it BIG time!
I watched one episode every evening until I have seen all 22 episodes.
And that was a great thrill ride every night!
Ok, enough introduction….let’s start with one of the best episodes.
Here are the highlights of episode 1!

And here is the video:
[Watch the video before you continue!]
It’s Steve’s first encounter with Black Scorpion! This starts his obsession with catching the Black Scorpion. He was transferred to this police department to catch her…. and I envy him big time! What a fantastic job! He gets paid to chase after such a stunning masked vigilante…oh man!
The ending of the episode with Firearm is so awesome! I love how he blackmails her to unmask herself….such a great move, and he really enjoys it 😉
One of the rare villains who actually wants to know who is under the mask of a heroine. And her reaction to it is well done and played as well!
Plus it’s a great bonus that he recognizes Darcy…and again, I love how he is enjoying the whole situation.
A good move that she quickly puts the mask back in place as soon she gets the chance.
In the end, Firearm has to die….after all, he had seen her face, so it was the most logical choice from the writers to get him killed.
It was the first episode if a villain like him would found out about her secret identity and would be able to tell everyone…it would be a short TV show.
Damn, I would give for a Blu-ray box for this TV show!!! Or a (not so cheesy) remake with better action scenes… #dream
