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:
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?

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:
Well…this clip (and the entire movie) is most…bizarre. A more or less failing horror-comedy….BUT is has three sexy, masked nun-assassins who are fighting VS evil elves and a vampire version of Santa Clause! So don’t show this clip to your kids 😉
I had to edit some seconds of violence out of the clip, so it doesn’t get kicked off YouTube right away. And the ending had to go too, because the clip would get a little too long with it (and no more masked nuns anyhow in it…at the end).

And here is the video:
Well, one of the…weirder movies for sure 😉 !
But I won’t complain about sexy, mysterious …combat nuns….
Ok, a shame none of them gets unmasked, but well, I guess the evil elves didn’t have an unmasking fetish 😉
