Batgirl …and the many missed opportunities …to unmask her (…in just 2 comics!)

Now,Β  a pretty long post follows…hope you like it! πŸ˜‰

I still could go on a rampage for that evil/crazy decision to discard her cowl in the ongoing comic series…and replace it with that tiny eye mask that doesn’t hide anything.

As if the comic series was run by …Alicia “I don’t want that cowl” Silverstone…

Ok, but I accepted that batshit crazy decision and still hope they will change it back to the Batgirl cowl.

But what is at least similar annoying is the fact, that 99,99% of the villains don’t care about unmasking her, don’t care for finding out who she really is.

So, we didn’t get unmaskings… or even unmasking-attempts in the last years.

And you don’t need an unmasking fetish to wanna find out how she looks like beneath that mask.

Let’s check scenes from just two of the latest comics (and pretend that her mask hides her identity πŸ˜‰ ):

Scene 1:

(click to enlarge)

Batgirl unmasks the criminal…because it is the logical thing to do.

He tricks her, blinds her with pepper spray (?). For seconds she is helpless, he could easily unmask her…but he decides to run.

Ok, they don’t have time and are on the run, but a quick unmasking would take only seconds.

———————————————-

Scene 2:

(click to enlarge)

His “hand” reaches her face and he throws her around…

Ok, even the fact that he most likely didn’t want to unmask her….shouldn’t her barely secured eye mask come off by accident with a “grab and throw” like that?

But it seems that her mask is glued with magic superglue to her face…

———————————————-

Scene 3 and 4:

(click to enlarge)

These pages have two scenes.

  • He grabs her face and throws her against the wall.

Again her mask doesn’t come off by that, not by the grab to her face…not by the throw. Ok

  • Than she is knocked out….he could do everything…unmask her….or even finish her off, but he walks away (as nearly all villains seems to do).

Reminded me a lot of the Black Scorpion TV series. She nearly gets knocked out every second episode….but what do most of these villains do? They just walk away. Nearly every time! ARGGGG!

————————————

Scene 5:

(click to enlarge)

In the same issue(!) he wins a second time against Batgirl. But he is happy with his quick victory and leaves without using that advantage.

And again, her tiny mask is held by that superglue…no matter what he throws at her…no matter how she gets thrown around.

 

5 scenes from just 2 comic books!

So many things that really frustrates me about it…

Ok, I will still continue to follow Batgirl in the comics as well.

The hope she might get her cowl back (and not the “burnside” version) and that some villain might at least TRY to unmask her.

I mean, if you are a villain, and Batgirl always tries to stop you….. You basically can do two things:

1) Kill her (not good)

2) Unmask her (and ….(a) then controlling her by blackmailing her …or (b)…. release pictures/a video of her unmasked face, which would finish her)

But all they do is to run off….. πŸ™

Ok, enough of me, what do YOU think about it?

Batwoman in the Arrowverse – #6

Time for an update on the Elseworlds crossover!

We got this promo picture:

(click to enlarge)

Pretty cool poster! My two favorites are on the right half πŸ˜‰

—–

I am looking forward to find out how much screen time Batwoman and Kate Kane actually get.

The whole crossover with the 3 parts is around 2 hours long. We know that the heroes will go to Gotham City in the second episode where they meet “both”.

Hard to tell how much Kate and Batwoman will be involved in the third episode. But of course I hope Batwoman will still help them in that last chapter!

And….we got a real trailer that shows about one minute of material…that is a step forward πŸ˜‰

With the first seconds of Kate Kane on-screen!

Right now my main question is how Kate Kane and Batwoman are behave towards all those heroes that arrive in Gotham.

Why do they travel to Gotham? How is Kate and Batwoman involved in all of this?? Will they figure out that Kate IS Batwoman???

But these questions will be answered pretty soon!

Only 4 days left (for the ones in the US / 5 days for me)!

 

German Comic Con Dortmund 2018

Some of you may remember my little post about the german Comic con in Dortmund last year.

Well, this year I went to it too…..and I wanna write something about it and have prepared a little video.

This one was actually my second Comic con. And compared with last year…..hmh, I would say I was/am a little disappointed.

Ok, doing something for the first time is always a little more exciting I guess, but the main reason for my disappointment is clearly the lack of …..(well-) masked women.

Because to be honest, that is my main motivation as it wasn’t very cheap to travel to Dortmund and buy a ticket for the con.

What was really good this year were the Hollywood guests (check the video) and that it wasn’t too crowded with now 3 instead of last years 2 halls for the Comic Con.

And of course…seeing so many folks dressed up in often great costumes is always very interesting and/or sexy (in case of some really sexy dressed women).

But back to my main motivation:

There was NOT ONE masked woman with a really good costume (from what I saw).

There were two Spider-Gwens/Girls with good costumes, but without masks (DAMN! The mask is an/the essential part!). There were two Catwomen with really cheap costumes, not sexy at all.

And I didn’t find a single Batgirl, Batwoman, Spoiler or Canary! In general there were way too less DC characters around. And with the upcoming Batwoman appearance on the Crossover in a few days I thought there would be one or two at least…. Weird. Well, I only visited the Comic Con on sunday and not on saturday and sunday. Perhaps there were more masked women on saturday…don’t know.

So many costumes from Star Wars, Games of Thrones, Walking Dead, japanese Mangas, Horror movies. I guess I need to visit some sort of DC/Marvel-only Comic con, but I guess that doesn’t exist. πŸ˜†

Ok, I do know that a Batgirl/Catwoman costume that I find really attractive is pretty expensive. And that it is much easier to dress up like Harley Quinn for example. And ok, making a really good cosplay of Batgirl or Catwoman for example is tougher as most others. But there wasn’t a single rubber cowl on all these women…

Perhaps I will check out the “Heroes and Villains” fanfest in London or when it comes to Germany one day.

Next year the german comic con will be two timesΒ  in Dortmund. Hmh, I have to think about it. But I guess I will attend at least one of them.

Not so many other chances to find a Batgirl or Catwoman in real life πŸ˜†

And here is my little video:

How to start some fetishes in the childhood (…without realising it)

This post is for my Frogwoman blog and my Maskripper blog, it really fits well into both in my opinion.

For today I wanna post a short article about a short comic scene that always excited me since I saw it as a child. Back then, of course, I didn’t understand why I liked that scene so much, but later I got it. It seems like a normal, harmless comic scene in a harmless comic for children. But it fuels several fetishes, and I wanna show that scene to you, so you can understand.

Story:

A witch (Gundel Gaukeley) wants to steal the lucky “coin” from Dagobert Duck. She dresses like a woman from an insurance company that wants to insure that coin for free. She uses a blonde wig to disguise her identity (a little weird, that that is enough to fool her arch enemy…but ok). So Dagobert shows the room where the coin is placed.

That room is filled with gas, so they need to use gas masks to enter it. And she uses this opportunity…..

(click on the image to enlarge it to full size)

….to rip his gas mask off (!), he collapses and can’t stop her from stealing the priceless coin.

What is so exciting in that scene?

Well, basically it fuels two of my fetishes:

1) The “masked women”-fetish:

She uses a wig to mask herself so he wouldn’t recognise her. (ok, not a sexy Batgirl cowl, but…it’s a start)

Then she even puts a gas mask on. In fact a second mask. Now she is perfectly masked and disguised!

and…….

2) scuba/breath control/gas mask – fetish

Ok, she isn’t using scuba gear, but a “breathing device” to enter that room full of gas.

And that sudden act of betrayal, when she rips his gas mask off (unmasking) and thereby forces him to inhale the gas…..damn, very exciting stuff πŸ˜‰

This “act of betrayal” aspect, can be found in my favorite movie as well. In THUNDERBALL, Angelo, the trapped pilot, thinks that Largo will help him out of his jammed seat harness.

But instead he cuts his air hose and drowns him. (link to the video on Frogwoman.org)

Ok, much more ….evil …like in this cartoon…but it has as well this sudden betrayal/attack.

Well, and this week, I got that comic book that I had read as a child (after a long period of research to find that comic).

And now I understand why that scene attracted me back then.

Still love that scene!

Ok, that scene could be improved as well:

In my version he would quickly react, attack her, trying to rip her gas mask off to use it for himself πŸ˜‰

What do you folks think about this scene?

Can you remember some of your first contact with mask and/or scuba fetish?

Batwoman in the Arrowverse – #1

Ok, folks, it’s time to start a new sort of series on this blog!

As most of you (hopefully) know already, Batwoman will make her first appearance on TV in the big Arrowverse Crossover event, featuring an episode each from the CW series Flash, Arrow and Supergirl.

(click to enlarge)

And, with a thrill of anticipation I’m looking forward to that crossover from the day it was announced that Batwoman would make her debut in that.

I’m watching these series anyway, but this fuels my ….”delight level” to a whole new level! πŸ™‚

Especially regarding that she will get her own TV-SERIES after that!! (most likely, if nothing insane happens)

Why I am so happy about it?

Well, how many …at least solid…..movies and TV-series did we have with a proper masked heroine over all the years?

Not many! Catwoman in Batman Returns, the Black Scorpion series, Batgirl in Birds of Prey (one episode), the Queen of swords series (even the mask isn’t really a proper mask)

and lately some masked women in Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl (and mostly only eye masks).

Check my Hall of Fame for more info on these!

And now, Batwoman!

And I really like her from the comics and the animated movie (“Bad Blood”). Her wig and mask makes a really good disguise! Not like most other masked heroine, who wear tiny eye mask that cover nearly nothing. And I really hope that Ruby Rose makes a great debut as Batwoman!

And yesterday we got the first official picture with Ruby Rose as Batwoman:

(click to enlarge)

And DAMN, I’m really happy with it!

A really great mask/cowl! The moment she hits the screen….I will be very…..excited! πŸ˜‰

The costume is ok, more practical than sexy. Had hoped for some leather or even rubber…but well, that wasn’t very likely if you know the costumes of these 3 shows.

Of course it is not guaranteed that there will be a good unmasking. Perhaps Supergirl or Flash use their speed to unmask her to find out who she is. Or most likely Batwoman will trust them and unmask herself.

But whatever happens, every second with her on-screen will be really great (for me)!

And now some pictures of Ruby Rose without the costume:

What do you guys think of the costume?

A nightly visitor – A Catwoman tale [my first story for this blog]

So, my first story for this blog is ready! It was a lot of work, but work, that actually was interesting for most of the time. πŸ™‚

On this story Catwoman “visits” a mansion at night to get some shiny things from the safe. But the handsome playboy (no, not that one) wasn’t sleeping too….

So, I came up with 16 pages! 16 pages incl. Catwoman in a sexy catsuit, overknee boots, bondage elements, extensive unmasking scenes, fight scenes, some sex scenes and more πŸ™‚

Quite a long story, but you should take your time and read it.

 

Here is the extensive preview version with 11 of the 16 pages:

A nightly visitor – A Catwoman tale

(PDF-file stored here on the page)

The full version can be found in the VIP club, here on Maskripper.

A big thank you for those who supported me to run this blog!

And please…leave a feedback and comment on this post!

News on the first maskripper story and VIP update

Hey folks, for today, just two things:

– The Maskripper VIP club will be updated on September 2nd.

– The Story that I’m writing for this blog isn’t ready just now, it will take some more days.

 

A little preview:

It’s about Catwoman (with special masquerade) who wants to rob a handsome playboy (no, not THAT playboy πŸ˜‰ )

….but things doesn’t go the way she planned them.

And it is an adult story with fetish elements πŸ˜‰

Batwoman gets her own TV-series in the Arrowverse!

[Post 2 of 2 for today]

“Batwoman-day” continues with this post.

I guess many of you know already…but it is a MUST for me to post that here.

2 months ago we got the news that Batwoman would be included in the next Crossover event of the Arrowverse.

Back than I already hoped… that that COULD lead to her own TV-series…but I never believed that they would go on and decide to actually do that ….months before that crossover.

And now we are getting a complete TV-series with a MASKED heroine…that IS SO GREAT!

>>> My hopes for the Batwoman TV-series: <<<

—> Please stick to the tone of the comic series!

A little darker (and ….much darker than Supergirl for example) and a little grim.

 

—> Please stick to the costume and mask of the comic series!

I want the iconic Batwoman mask from the comics, that actually really hides her identity together with the wig. I want a sexy costume…perhaps with rubber or leather (or spandex).

I don’t want a damn eye mask for her! (producers: “let us show her face”)

 

—> Please choose a good and fitting actress!

Well, a VERY important point. I would like an actress that is good at her job. An actress that is tall enough and strong enough. An actress that can believable play such a well-trained heroine.

 

—> Please let her have a real secret identity!

Her identity must remain a good secret. I hope that only very few actually know who Batwoman is.

(unlike for example: Catwoman in “The Dark Knight rises”)

—-> And please….please let there be some villains that actually are interested in UNMASKING her

That is I guess the only point where they shouldn’t stick to the comics too much….

Of course she can’t be unmasked in every second episode. BUT wouldn’t it be “normal” that you would want to see the face behind that mask?

That they would TRY to unmask her?

OK, I know that can’t be happening to oft…but I know around 60 or more Batwoman comics. And nearly no one of her enemies seem to care who is under that mask…

I mean… you don’t need some unmasking fetish πŸ˜‰ to be interested in that. Just a little curiosity.

Let’s say 2-3 unmasking attempts in one season with over 20 episodes. And 1-2 unmaskings.

Ok, but now a video that they released to the San Diego comic con last week:

The really important part is around 1:40…

Well, not much/nothing to see, but I like the dialogue. πŸ™‚

I hope that there is more to see in video in the near future!

What do you think about the TV-series?

What are your hopes?

Catwoman: New comic series and a new/better costume (…and copycats!)

Today I wanna celebrate the new Catwoman comic series that started this week. Some great news: Not only that there IS a new Catwoman series after years of absence…she also has a new costume!

And I really like the new one! The goggles on the old costume never worked for me… they didn’t look good… they broke some times….and she had them on her forehead much too often, which ruined the disguise completely.

Now she has a real cowl again! It does look much better and she has a much more “complete” mask in my opinion. And the rest of the costume looks pretty good as well.

A little back story of what happened before the pages I show down below:

[SPOILER]

The police try to arrest Selina (as they think she is Catwoman πŸ™ ) for two murdered cops. She escapes them and watches the news where they say that Catwoman killed these cops.

She wants to prove them wrong. And has now a different costume, so she clearly looks different from the Catwoman that committed the murders…

Catwoman_copycats
Catwoman (2018-) 001-019

 

(click on the arrows to browse through the pages)

Well, besides the cool new costume…I love the idea with the copycats. Seeing so many CatwomEn…. really cool.

And I wonder how Catwoman will handle that situation…perhaps the copycats attack her and try to unmask her πŸ˜‰

That would be something! And another run-in with the police would be interesting as well.

But this time as Catwoman…please!

What is your opinion on the costume?

…and on the story?

Masked heroines! – [Fan art by BluLive]

The VIP club will be updated on April 2nd, when I’m back. This post was scheduled…

And now it’s time to present some really well done masked heroines! You may have noticed in the past that I really like real cowls on a woman.

A sexy rubber cowl that really hides the secret identity….

And this guy has made a lot of great art with such masked heroines! Here are my favorites:

(click on the image to enlarge it to full size)

Especially I love the Batgirl with the cowl from Superman VS Batman. The expression on her face as Poison Ivys plants have ripped off her cowl (not just pulled off)… πŸ™‚

A new masked, female speedster [The Flash – 2 scenes]

In the new episode of the Flash we have a new masked, female speedster. And of course, I want to show her to you folks! There are two scenes with her.

In the first, she doesn’t have a costume ready for action, so she just put on a mask and speeds away to save lives.

In the 2nd, she does have a complete costume. πŸ™‚

Preview, Scene 1:

(click to enlarge)
And here is the video:
—————————————-
And here comes scene 2 where she already has a complete costume:
Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Good to see her in action! And she looks pretty good with that mask on.

But of course, I’m not happy that the Flash has a real mask, a cowl that covers his identity pretty well and Iris, just as any other woman on the running CW shows (ok, 99% of the women), only gets a crappy eye mask.

And while the Canary (@ Arrow) for example had an eye mask with face paint around her eyes and a wig …as a solid disguise, Iris only gets an eye mask. I hate this moronic producers-idea: “Let’s give her a mask but don’t hide her face… ”

Yeah, a mask that hides 10% of her face and could be blown off by a tiny breeze….. πŸ™„Β  πŸ™

But ok, after all I’m happy for every masked women so… I do like her guest role as The Flash.

But please, dear producers:

How about a real mask for the women on your shows? And some villain that actually wants to know who is behind the mask πŸ˜‰

German Comic Con Dortmund 2017 [My 1st!]

*EDIT* Added another video…

 

As promised, I wanna share my impressions from my first comic con in Dortmund yesterday.

As I understand it we didn’t have comic cons in germany before 2015. And now we have the “german comic con” in 4 different cities throughout the year.

In addition there is the “comic con germany” that is just once a year.

As I heard it was very crowded on saturday. Last year they used 4 big halls, and the folks had enough space. This year they put the con in just 2 big halls…

Well, I was there on sunday. It was crowded, but not on a really annoying scale.

I was hoping to see some Catwomen, Batgirls and other masked, female heroines and villainesses.

There were lots of lots of women/girls that did cosplays from japanese mangas… and lots of Harley Quinn’s. And there were a lot of female cosplayers that “did” Star Wars and Game of Thrones.

But regarding masked women from DC or Marvel… well I saw/noticed one Black Cat, two Batgirls, three Catwomen, one Spider-girl (unmasked) and some masked assassin from the Court of owls. I hoped for more… and no Batwoman, no Canary, no masked Spier-girl/Gwen, no Spoiler.Β  Of course I was only there on one day and of course you can’t see every cosplayer.

I definitely need to improve on my handling of my photo camera and the “photographer” skills. But I will learn from that experience.

From the material I have I edited around 10 really short clips into one short video.

But let’s start with some pictures (nearly all masked women are in the video) :

And here comes MY self-filmed video:

In the video you should find 3 Catwomen and one Batgirl (my favorite cosplay that day).

And if you look closely, you will find a second batgirl, without cowl (not facing the camera)

*EDIT* You can see that Batgirl and more great cosplays in this official video at around 0:40:

 

Well, actually these were my first Batgirl/Catwomen that I saw in “real” life. And that was a pretty great experience. I will try to attend more comic cons in the future. And I’m pretty sure that then I can present better picture/video material. It would be great if there was a con just for DC and Marvel.

But -after all- it was a promising start…

Thanks to all the cosplayers! Great Job!

Feel free to comment!

Did you visited comic cons in the past? What are your experiences?

 

German comic con Dortmund and other news

[2nd post today]

Some news to report:

I will be attending the german comic con in Dortmund next week (december 10th). I am really looking forward to it! Never been to one, and comic cons in germany are still a pretty “new” thing. I hope to see some well-made cosplays. Especially from masked heroines like Batgirl, Batwoman, Catwoman, Spider-girl, Spider-gwen and so on. I will take my little amateur camera with me and take some pictures and videos.

I guess you all will love to hear that I will disable all Infolink ADs in this month. Even with the solid, stable visitor count the revenue is getting too low lately. And the site will look better without the ADs.

And now to the Amazon-links/banners. I know how many visitors visit my two blogs and I know that around 50% are from the USA, Great Britain and Germany.

But nearly no one uses the amazon-links on this site! Wanna know how much the US and german amazon links made last month?

0,0 / Nothing / Nada / ΓΌberhaupt gar nichts

(UK links around 1-2 Pounds)

Well, that is really…. annoying. I know that many people shop at amazon. So, if you like this blog and visit it every once in a while…why don’t use these links if you wanna shop at amazon in the USA, UK or germany? If you use the link from the banner as a bookmark, you would only need to invest some seconds once and help me out at the same time.

Wanted! Black Scorpion, Queen of Swords, Birds of Prey ……in HD quality!

(2nd post for today)

A little repost I did on Behind the mask:

 

In my opinion these three are the most important TV-shows when it comes to women in masks. All from my “Hall of Fame” on this blog.
The problem is, none of these seems to be available in HD.
In germany, only Birds of Prey is available on DVD! Black Scorpion (the TV show) and I think Queen of swords too were never even shown on TV here…
I bought Black Scorpion from amazon.com and Queen of Swords from amazon.fr. And you can find…other sources to these shows more or less easy, but all at best in DVD quality.
Many many “old” movies and TV shows are available on HD now. They were shown on HD TV, so folks were able to Record/rip it, or Blu-Rays were released.
Does anyone know a source where to get any of these shows in HD quality (720p or better)?
From time to time I check the different amazon sites and other ….sources, but nothing so far.
I would love to see them in a picture quality these shows deserve!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Just comment this post…
