A good disguise and quite a dramatic turn of events.
I think she overreacted big time, I mean her partner was beaten with a bat, ok, but that’s no reason to shoot someone.
And if she shoots it doesn’t need to be a deadly shot.
Ok, it was pretty dark… but that boy with his bright shirt was still visible well enough…
All in all a solid scene.
Later in the movie, we have terrorists in gas masks. There is also one female terrorist, but she is infiltrating the event as a waitress and the only terrorist that doesn’t wear a gas mask at any time.
I didn’t upload this on Youtube as the Youtube police might have some issues with it. After all her costume is very stretchy and you can see through it sometimes.
It’s not hard to see that she isn’t wearing a bra underneath it so her nipples show in some shots. That’s why I slightly censored the pictures of her as well. I don’t know exactly how far I can go on this blog.
But don’t worry, the video isn’t censored 😉
Back then there was a big discussion about her costume as the movie serial was released, remember it was 1915 and that costume did move a lot of eyebrows (and other parts) back then.
Even today this costume would be troublesome (for some), especially in color and HD 😉
I think the mask combo is interesting with a cowl that is attached to the suit and an additional fabric that covers the face.
The mask of the new TV show is similar but there only the lower part of her face is covered by an additional piece of fabric.
With this mask, Irma is rather easy to unmask, as one quick pull is enough to expose her face (except the cowl part).
I like how he is immediately going for her mask to see the face of the masked thief he just caught. I don’t get why she didn’t resist him as he reaches for her mask, that’s a little minus point for me.
However, it is such a great fantasy to catch such a masked thief…. I wouldn’t mind being in his skin 😉
I guess I need a mansion and some valuables to attract thieves like her 😆
I added the scene with her replacement to the video as it is never wrong to have another masked woman in it, especially as the “masking” is in the video. (is that even a word?)
All in all a very interesting scene, even though it is in black and white and there is no sound (except music).
At first, I wanted to upload that scene on Youtube, but I suspect that the scene may be ….problematic…and I got into trouble for videos with “less”.
I simply don’t want to endanger my Maskripper Youtube channel.
Ok, that scene is the most interesting in an episode PACKED with interesting scenes.
There are more scenes of her in costume and mask and the film crew is discussing if it is ok to even film that scene and if you would be a pervert if you find it sexy (him touching her …like that…while she is unconscious). All that is highly interesting, especially as the director is strongly defending that scene and he admitted (to his female psycho-doc!) in an earlier episode that he is really turned on by women in catsuits and the whole Irma Vep role, which is played by that actress he really “likes”…… 🙂
Again….WATCH the whole episode…..at least!!!!!!
Now on to the scene itself:
I think she looks fantastic in that catsuit and mask!
The way they talk with each other….pure gold.
It’s a little odd that she gets surprised by his chloroform attack, even her hood and mask …maybe… preventing her from hearing or smelling the upcoming danger.
Also… as you should know by now…. I highly prefer unmaskings with a conscious heroine/villainess.
But nonetheless, the whole scene is incredibly sexy…. in certain ways.
Of course, it is not ok at all that the bad guy is doing that… but it is fiction, it’s not real.
I mean what a fantasy it is to see a sexy woman in such a catsuit and mask.
And the director inside this TV show really enjoys filming that scene big time 😉
Well, I can’t blame him…
3 more episodes to go in this season, hopefully, it gets another season….if the ending of the season allows it.
However, it is already clear to me that this TV show will end up in my Hall of Fame.
