(tried to upload it on YouTube, but it was blocked after a minute)
As you should know by now, I’m not the biggest fan of eye masks, since they are just not big enough to hide enough….but seeing three pretty women like these in such costumes…with these masks…..is rather interesting! 😉
And the aspect of their masks actually changing their thinking….is fascinating!
If they would wear these costumes all the time…I would have seen every episode…
Ok, the boy should make some adjustments to the costumes and masks, but his result isn’t bad for sure.
Here you can see which episode from which TV series it is:
From time to time I check the new releases from video producers of our common “special interest”. And not often I put up a showcase like this one….because, as some of you know, what I think about a big part of these videos. Many have very cheap costumes and no masks or little eye masks from the one dollar shop.
I was thrilled as I saw the trailer and some pictures from this one! Why? I saw another video with “Nightfox” two years ago (more about that one later) and I enjoyed that one very much. I really like her costume. Boots, a sexy pantyhose, that body (in both meanings!)…..and especially the cowl/mask. That is a real mask! It really hides her identity (which is very important to me), is has a chin strap (so it can’t just fall off) and it is made out of rubber. Such masks are pretty rare to find in videos. And of course it is a nice bonus that it looks like Batgirl’s cowl!
And as I watched the trailer, I found another great reason to watch this video. The villainess wants to see who is hiding underneath that mask! 🙂

Nightfox steps into a trap of the villainous duo, “Gravestone”. Unfortunately, the only thing they hate more than Nightfox is each other. When they worked together, the villains give the superheroine more than she can handle and easily defeats her and she becomes their prisoner. The only question is, will they finish her off before they kill each other?
And here is the trailer:
Well that preview-frame from the trailer is showing a VERY interesting moment 🙂
The villainess is yanking at her mask!
I have watched the whole video by now and I can say: I like it! As I mentioned I really like the costume and mask, but other aspects are well done as well.
The fight scenes are solid as well as the acting. Score and editing are good. And the story isn’t bad either! Of course there is always room for improvement, but if you compare this video with the vast majority of the genre….it is definitely much better than the average fetish video. And that is the reason for this showcase.
Even there is no actuall unmasking in the scene….a find it rather interesting. The mystery of her mask is very sexy. The music is brilliant in my opinion. First suspense/thrilling music and then some sort of kids-song as he gets murdered…interesting combination!
I included two scenes from later on in that same episode to show her unmasked face.
In case you wanna know the title of this episode and show:
+ My special “Black Scorpion” edits from episodes 17-19 …so incl. the best Black Scoprion Episode (19, with Flashpoint) with over 13 minutes of Black Scorpion (6 minutes are the normal screentime for her in one episode) (all scenes with Black Scorpion in it , +some extra sexy Darcy Walker scenes, -the recurring car chase scenes)
+ you will have FULL access to my 2 (self-written) Maskripper fetish stories (both over 15 pages)!
Well, as Batman, Batwoman is a creature of the night, so a rather dark tone fits very good and I really like a dark(er) tone in a movie or TV series. I mean Legends of Tomorrow is half a comedy, Flash has dark moments but the hero does see much more daylight than Batman/Batwoman and it has comedy elements as well (Ralph etc.). Arrow has some darkness and tragedy, but now less than at the beginning in my opinion. And the relationsship between Oliver and Felicity changed quite a lot in that matter…. so much relationsship drama, his son …etc.
The CW should have enough experience by now with all those superhero shows, that I’m confident that they know what to do with …this… caped crusader.
And if you “only” wanna watch all scenes with Batwoman and Kate Kane, check out this post:
I am sure many of you noticed that Batwoman (Ruby Rose) has worn two different masks so far. First, we saw her in the Crossover with her “regular” mask and wig. And now, in the trailer from last week, she wore a different mask without a wig (the pilot plays years BEFORE the Crossover).
Where are the differences? Well, as I have a Dr. in ….maskoligy…..I will try to show them to you 😉
For starters, let’s me present her “regular” mask that she will wear from the ending of episode 1 (most likely):
(cropped pictures to show the mask/cowl)
There are at least 3 differences from her regular mask (pictures 1-6) to the mask she wears for most parts of the trailer (pictures 7-12). I believe that it is just a size-modified Batman cowl that Luke Fox made to fit Batwoman’s head.
1) most obvious – Her regular mask includes a flashing red wig. Therefore I think her, the material on top of her head was removed, the cowl seems open, her wig is right on her real hair.
I don’t think her wig is “glued” to the top of her mask. Even it would make some things easier (for the actress).
2) The whole shape is different!
The modified Batman mask is much rounder as her regular one. It looks bigger to me (volume/capacity).
You can see the shape of her ear on the regular one (picture 2) and it fits better to her head in my opinion.
3) The eye section!
If you compare the mask around her eyes…you can see that the material of the modified Batman mask is flat. On her regular mask, it is shaped much different. It looks menacing (like it should be) and should provide much better protection for her if someone would score a hit in that area. With that shape, it should hurt to hit her there 😉
Things I would like to know about these masks:
1)From what material(s) are they made off?
I think that it is rather some “hardened kind of plastic” like Christian Bale’s Batman cowl. Personally I would love if it would be made out of thick rubber, that could be stretched a bit (for unmasking purposes of course 😉 )….but I don’t think it is.
2) Is the back section of her regular mask “closed” as well?
You can see that her Batman-mask is “closed” (pictures 7 and 11) at the back of her head.
Due to the wig, we couldn’t see the back of the cowl on her regular mask. Is it closed as well? In the comics she doesn’t wear a cowl, it “just” covers her face and some parts of the sides of her head. If it is not closed around her head…how it is fixed to stay on it?
3) Does she wear a “cowl of cloth” underneath her mask?
If you check picture 11, you can spot some cloth material that exits her mask on her cheek. And on pictures 2 and 7 you can see that this cloth material covers her neck from the top of her suit upwards. How far does that cloth material “goes” upwards?
……to be continued…..
What do you think about these masks?
Do you see other differences that aren’t on my list?

>>>>>>>>>>> Maskripper is now on ……Twitter!!! <<<<<<<<<<<
Well, yeah, this …full face helmet of Red Daughter does qualify as a mask to me, even that is not the real purpose of it. It is part of her battle costume and has some functions in a fight as it seems.
Anyway I like the struggle between them, especially in the daylight. Really looking forward on how this will develop in the last episode of the season.
In case you wanna know from which episode that was taken:
I guess that will be the longest post I ever made here on Maskripper, but…
…well, these are really exciting days….a lot of BIG news on the Batwoman TV show!
When will the show start?
1) It will run on Sundays at 8 PM on the CW, right before Supergirl (9 PM)
2) It will start sometime in Fall, the exact date will be announced in the future
The Trailer is here:
A “Sneak Peak” is there too:
And a general, short trailer for all the Arrowverse shows…with some seconds of Batwoman as well:
And now something to read as well…the Official Storyline:
BATWOMAN— Kate Kane (Ruby Rose) never planned to be Gotham’s new vigilante. Three years after Batman mysteriously disappeared, Gotham is a city in despair. Without the Caped Crusader, the Gotham City Police Department was overrun and outgunned by criminal gangs. Enter Jacob Kane (Dougray Scott) and his military-grade Crows Private Security, which now protects the city with omnipresent firepower and militia. Years before, Jacob’s first wife and daughter were killed in the crossfire of Gotham crime. He sent his only surviving daughter, Kate Kane, away from Gotham for her safety. After a dishonorable discharge from military school and years of brutal survival training, Kate returns home when the Alice in Wonderland gang targets her father and his security firm, by kidnapping his best Crow officer Sophie Moore (Meagan Tandy). Although remarried to wealthy socialite Catherine Hamilton-Kane (Elizabeth Anweis), who bankrolls the Crows, Jacob is still struggling with the family he lost, while keeping Kate –– the daughter he still has –– at a distance. But Kate is a woman who’s done asking for permission. In order to help her family and her city, she’ll have to become the one thing her father loathes –– a dark knight vigilante. With the help of her compassionate stepsister, Mary (Nicole Kang), and the crafty Luke Fox (Camrus Johnson), the son of Wayne Enterprises’ tech guru Lucius Fox, Kate Kane continues the legacy of her missing cousin, Bruce Wayne, as Batwoman. Still holding a flame for her ex-girlfriend, Sophie, Kate uses everything in her power to combat the dark machinations of the psychotic Alice (Rachel Skarsten), who’s always somewhere slipping between sane and insane. Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate soars through the shadowed streets of Gotham as Batwoman. But don’t call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a savior, she must first overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope. Based on the characters from DC, BATWOMAN is from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl”), Caroline Dries (“The Vampire Diaries,” “Smallville”), Geoff Johns (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Titans”) and Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl”). David Nutter (“Game of Thrones,” “The Flash,” “Arrow”) and Marcos Siega (“The Vampire Diaries,” “You”) executive produced the pilot.

My opinion on the trailer:
I was rather surprised we get a trailer that long at this time! 🙂
And that is “only” material from the pilot episode, which was the only one that was filmed so far.
I liked the rather dark tone of it, both in optics AND atmosphere. Very fitting, like Batman…Batwoman is a creature of the night with a rather troubled past.
We get introduced to the (so far) important characters, get a feeling for the story of the pilot and some good action scenes as well.
There is a lot of ….fuzz…over Kate’s two…well….”feminisitc(?)” lines, but I think they just wanna make a statement in the trailer. I don’t think she will drop such lines on a regular base in the Show later this year. I don’t have a problem with it, as long as it doesn’t get …too much.
And seeing this trailer…..it is something really….HUGE for me. As you may know by now, I really have a thing for masked women. 😉
She wears a great masks that really hides her identity, there are so MANY examples in other shows were the women have rather small masks that doesn’t hide enough to provide a good “secret identity cover” for the woman underneath the mask.
And to have a show with such a masked heroine in the LEAD role…..it is a dream coming true.
My biggest questions about the show so far:
1) When will the show start exactly? So that I can configure the timer on the right side 😉
2) Which characters will we get to see in that season? Villains/Villainesses? What other heroes/heroines? Gotham has A LOT to offer 🙂
3) Is Alice the main villainess?
4) Who will figure out who is under Batwoman’s mask? And When?
In the trailer…”only” Luke Fox seems to be “in the know”, as he is responsible for her suit and gadgets. In the comics her father knows it from the start (as he train her), but it’s not sure the TV show will do it like the comics.
5) How many unmaskings will be shown? And what types of unmaskings? (Self, forced, unconscious, bound, fight …-unmaskings?)
6) Her masks (in the trailer we saw 2 versions): From what material are they made of? What are the exact differences between the both types we saw so far?
7) What is the main storyline? (after the pilot)
8) How much screentime will Batwoman actually get in the episodes?
