Oliver Queen attacked by masked female ninja!

Thanks to a helpful comment I got this scene recommended 🙂

Really weird, I actually saw most of the seasons of this TV show including the one with this scene, but somehow I totally forgot about it, I guess I didn’t make notes back then like I do nowadays.

So, what do we have here? We have Oliver Queen getting attacked by a masked female ninja!

And no, I’m not talking about the Arrow TV show…

And here is the video:

Yeah, sadly a rather short scene with an even shorter fight, and we don’t get a good look at the masked ninja….

…. BUT we get a masked female ninja that actually gets unmasked by someone else! And she isn’t unconscious or tied up! 🙂

That is rather rare and my favorite version of an unmasking. Ok, she could have struggled longer and put up more of a fight, but after all, she actually knows him and didn’t want to really hurt him.

The reveal is done well as we fully see how he unmasks her, the camera doesn’t cut away.

There is a tiny continuation error as he has her pinpointed down. First, the (weirdly red) tip of her nose is showing, but a second later the fabric is covering it up… quite a magic mask she has 😉

I’m quite jealous of him in this scene. I wouldn’t mind swapping places with him…

 

One day I will have to re-watch the Smallville show from beginning to end, even though I’m already buried under a pile of movies and TV shows that I need to watch or re-watch.

Wanna know from which episode this is?

Catwoman VS Black Widow! Check out this animated 3D fan film!

Thanks to a member of our Behind the Mask forum, I discovered this gem, check it out and enjoy:

Watch the video before you continue!

Well….. WOW! I must say that is a VERY spectacular fan film!

This isn’t an aminated video from a big studio but the result of the work of just a few folks.

I love that Catwoman is in it and Black Widow is a good opponent for her… even I would have preferred Batgirl 😉

The effects are well done, all the sweat, rain and thunder, and so on.

The effects really add to the overall atmosphere.

The fight scene is well-choreographed and amazingly long.

Also, a big bonus for me is the costume damage! Normally these costumes seem indestructible in the movies which is quite annoying.

Especially the aspect that the Catwoman eye mask gets damaged twice is really great for me, as I love mask damage which happens so rarely!

A nice aspect is that Catwoman then gets fully unmasked! Also, I always prefer if the opponent slowly yanks or rips that mask away.

A shame that the two aren’t talking a little more, especially since some comments about Catwoman’s secret identity would have been great as her mask gets damaged more and more.

I imagine a Catwoman with a cowl fighting the classic Batgirl and then these two would battle to see how can destroy the mask of the opponent first 😉

 

As you can see on their Youtube channel they will make another battle between these two… looking forward to it… BIG time!

1 masked woman and 2 masked guys breaking into school [Blog exclusive]

Thanks to the guy who recommended me this one!

We have a masked woman and two guys who break into a school.

What are they up to? Will they get caught and unmasked?

And here is the video:

I uploaded this video on the Youtube channel, but it is unlisted there, so you won’t find it there by searching or browsing my Youtube channel.

Why? Well, the whole (short) movie was uploaded to Youtube by the guy who made it and this is basically just a part of it with one edit.

So, I think my video shouldn’t be on (public) Youtube and that’s why it is unlisted.

I will put a link to the whole movie in this post as well, so it should be ok to post a short part of it.

She looks really good in that mask, a shame that she unmasks herself, even if it is done in a good way without cuts.

In my version, the guys would have given up easily and she would have battled the two cops who then would have unmasked her after some serious struggle.

But ok, this movie is made for kids…. so that wasn’t an option 😉

In the end, it’s a nice reveal of a stunning young woman, so I think it’s a solid scene all things considered.

The oldest unmasking in movie history? [Blog exclusive]

In the last weeks, I posted about the new Irma Vep TV show and the movie from 1996.

But Irma Vep actually first appeared in a movie serial in ….1915! Yes……1915!

Yes, that means black and white + no sound…just some added music.

I’m certainly a total beginner when it comes to movies THAT old but I wouldn’t be surprised at all if this movie serial may include the first unmasking of a woman in a movie!

After all, this was just about 20 years after the first movie was made and they didn’t make that many movies back then in the early days of cinema.

So, this scene needs to be on this blog!

Here is the video:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Z1Nzmu2nyNbOSlOVD_c2zgBYj0hzVp_1/view?usp=sharing

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).

Here is the IMDB page for the movie serial:

What do you think of these scenes and her costume?

P.S.:

If you re-arrange the letters from her name “Irma Vep” …you have “Vampire” (no coincidence) 😉

A masked cat burglar in latex gets unmasked!

Time for another scene from the same movie which I posted about last week!

In this scene, the masked cat burglar in latex gets unmasked 🙂

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

In my opinion, the scene is very interesting but there are a lot of negative aspects for me.

It is shot in black and white (which is unsexy) and the scene has no audio as it is only a presentation for the movie makers who wanna check out what they have filmed earlier in the day.

As you can see in the ending the director isn’t happy about it at all and is arguing with the camera guy.

Sadly it’s not shown as they are actually filming it. 🙁

And I still don’t get why Irma Vep isn’t resisting as he unmasks her. (as in the original from 1916)

In the new TV show, the scene is done differently, and that is my favorite version:

https://maskripper.org/the-masked-cat-burglar-in-trouble-blog-exclusive

In this one, the acting is quite…. off… a little bit.

On the plus side, it has a sexy cat burglar in latex(!) with a full face mask! Certainly, a fantastic outfit to create some great scenes with it…. which they are barely doing.

Imagine a cat burglar in that outfit and mask on a heist, getting caught by security guards… and then battling against them as they try to pin her down and unmask her 😉

Here is the IMDB link to the movie:

Catwoman unmasked by the police! ….and it’s not who you think ;-) – [Masks off #42]

Sorry, for not posting last weekend, but here is a mid-week post to make up for it.

Thanks to a nice member of the best unmasking forum in the world, I learned about a certain scene in a comic book.

And I have to say… it has become one of my favorite unmaskings in a comic book!

I think I knew most of the really good unmaskings by now, but this one has somehow slipped below my radar.

Let’s check it out:

Catwoman_Vikki
Shadow-Of-The-Bat-Annual-2-pg06
« of 7 »

Watch the pages before you go on!

Well, I love it! The fight with Batman is a nice start, always very sexy material, and the fact that he knocks her out….for just some seconds(?) to deliver her to the cops is quite unusual.

But well, after all, this is a very unusual storyline and many things are very different from the “normal” Batman world.

I love how he orders the cops to unmask her! Pure gold 🙂

A little odd that he leaves that to them, as I would have gladly done the job myself… if I would be Batman.

Of course, it would be nice to have the unmasking in more detail…in more panels…but ok.

However, the result is fantastic! Her mask yanked away to her forehead and the expression on her face…wow! She knows that she is screwed big time!

The cops and Batman now know who she is. They know who the famous cat burglar is and her career is pretty much over!

The big surprise here is that Catwoman is actually NOT Selina Kyle but Vikki Vale, and it makes it even better, especially when she is “interviewed” by Dr. Crane a few pages later on.

After she is injected with a truth serum she admits how she loves “the excitement, the danger, the fun” when she is Catwoman!

They should have added how much she loves to run around in that tight costume and mask and how much it turns her on 😉 . But that would have been too much for the censors 😆

A great fantasy to have a star reporter running around as Catwoman at night! A respected and famous member of society during the day and a wanted criminal at night, certainly a great mixture 🙂

And that makes the unmasking even better!

Of course, I would prefer her not to be handcuffed and to say something like “NO!” or “Not my mask!” or “Don’t you dare!”… but these are only small issues.

All in all, I am very happy to now know this “unmasking gem”.

These pages are from the comic:

Shadow Of The Bat – Annual #2

The masked cat burglar in trouble! [Blog exclusive]

Last week I posted about an actress who really loved her role as a masked cat burglar.

That was episode 4 of that TV show…and it was only the beginning of greatness 😉

Now let’s talk about episode 5!

Basically, I could post half the episode here as there is SO MUCH going on, but more on that later.

I can only recommend that you watch the whole TV show! (5 out of 8 episodes are out so far)

Or ….at least… watch the whole episode 5… you won’t regret it, that I can guarantee!

Now on to the ultimate highlight of the episode!

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

Here is the scene, I recommend watching the short(er) version first:

Video – short(er) version

Video – longer cut

Well…..have I promised too much? I think not!

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.

This TV show is such a great surprise to me.

That scene can be found in this episode:

That didn’t go as planned…

It’s a good scene and I like that she wasn’t forced to unmask herself but that the detective rips that mask off.

It’s a solid reveal.

Of course, I would have preferred a hand-to-hand fight in which she would have been (more) dramatically unmasked… but you can’t have everything 😉

Masked female agent VS villain and security guards

Thanks to the nice guy who recommended this one on my favorite forum!

Haven’t watched the full movie yet as it’s a cheap-looking flick with quite a bizarre script from what I have seen so far.

But… it certainly has a great scene for this blog!

And here is the video:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_DcWhuC8xj7M83Mx3OEOAEW1H7sKywAB/view?usp=sharing

(*EDIT* Had to re-upload it to an alternative site…)

Watch the video before you continue!

This is the only scene in the movie where she is wearing a mask… or more correctly… maskS.

Let’s start with her outfit: Well, …… it’s safe to say that the costume designer isn’t a woman. 😉

Quite a revealing outfit and some impressive twins!

And these two are verrrry often presented like this throughout the movie.

Seemingly the director and/or the producers wanted to show them as much as they could without a nude scene.

And the poster of the movie shows very good what this movie is about:

….and yes, that is the complete poster 😆

Her masquerade is unusual and very interesting:

She does wear a simple mask as the base disguise and on top of that one a pretty large eye mask with some nice textures on it.

A very nice combination that is very rare!

The first fight with the villain is already a highlight as he (99% sure) already makes an attempt at unmasking her…

 

…as his hand is clawing for her mask! But she quickly moves her head to the side (or pushes his arm aside?) so he grabs into the void.

I love unmasking attempts and they are quite rare … so I love such a scene!

He sees the sexy masked intruder and the first chance he gets he goes for her mask! Yes, that’s how someone should behave who fights against a masked woman. 🙂

The second fight with these two is even better!

Ok, the lighting is rather bad since there is that colorful background light.

But the fight is done quite well and as soon he gets another chance he goes for her mask… again! A good villain 🙂

And this time she can’t stop him as he rips off her mask! But to his surprise he only half of her masquerade…

So, this is a “partial” unmasking… a very rare element.

She escapes before he can make another attempt on unmasking her completely.

The stunt where she lands in the moving van is quite laughable (why has she to land in a moving/sliding van?).

Nice that she immediately unmasks herself.

Sadly we can only see her for seconds then before the scene is over too soon.

All in all this a verrrrrry good discovery as there are 2 really good fight scenes that include an unmasking attempt and a partial unmasking! Much more unmasking action as in the average scene with a masked woman. 🙂

I do have a bonus scene with her without her mask on:

A sexy female masked burglar wants to steal a hightech chip

I watched the whole movie, which was a mistake…. but the movie does have a really good scene 🙂

And I wanna present that one here…

Preview:

And here is the video:

Watch the video before you continue!

That is the only scene of any interest in the movie. Sadly it becomes a bad soap opera afterward, a really bad one.

And she doesn’t appear masked later on…. 🙁

But this scene is actually quite interesting:

Her outfit is quite… unusual… but certainly sexy! I love the boots and her mask is quite good as well.

Also, I do like how the guy thinks here. A masked woman wants to steal from him and he naturally wants to see her face. 🙂

He almost immediately goes for her mask and she isn’t skilled enough to stop him.

Sadly the unmasking is shown from a really bad angle as the camera is behind her. Damn!

Still, it’s a solid unmasking and not a self unmasking or a forced unmasking, and that is refreshing…

Would have been good though is she would have been able to put up more of a fight as she was unmasked too easy and too quickly for my taste.

But certainly a good scene in my opinion!

Wanna know the title of the movie?

*EDIT* May 16: A nice visitor of this blog provided the correct IMDB link:

Now we all can enjoy these two interesting scenes 🙂

First, some preview pictures:

And here is the video:

Watch the video before you continue!

Ok, it’s not easy to spot all the time who of these masked fighters is the woman who he unmasks in the end.

But it’s a nice unmasking, although she can’t fight back. It’s nice to NOT have her self-unmask like in the last 1000 scenes I saw 😉

I don’t really get why he unmasked her, as there were so many masked fighters, but perhaps he just got curious.

The way he had his arm around her upper body…he should have realized that it’s a woman. 😉

And her eyes also tell that.

The reveal to him that she also was the “masked” tied-up woman earlier in the movie is a nice bonus.

Even that white veil isn’t really a mask as it hides basically nothing at all.

So, perhaps you wanna know the title of the movie?

Batgirl gassed by a villain and Batgirl gets into… close contact…. with Batman!

I have seen this one as it came out in …. mid-2016?! Damn, nearly 6 years ago already.

Somehow I didn’t make a post back then as it seemed very difficult for me as this movie has so many minutes of a certain masked heroine!

But, as with the Catwoman: Hunted movie I will focus on 2 selected scenes.

I certainly recommend you to watch the whole movie.

 

Preview, scene 1:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

WATCH the video before you continue! SPOILERS ahead!

Well, Batgirl was pretty lucky here! She managed to stay conscious long enough to lock herself “away”.

Otherwise, this guy could have done quite a lot to her….

However, I really like this peril scene as he uses that odd knockout gas that takes some time to work.

It’s also odd that he sprays that stuff in his own direction also, as his face is right next to hers… but it has not the slightest effect on him, even he was (less) exposed to it, but ok, no big aspect.

The way he presses himself onto her is quite…..sexual….I was surprised that they would have that scene in it.

Batgirl was also lucky that he didn’t go immediately for her mask as she was pretty helpless (picture 3).

But he missed the chance to unmask her…

 

And I got one more scene for you!

Preview, scene 2:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

WATCH the video before you continue! SPOILERS ahead!

Well, luckily I didn’t know about that scene before I watched this movie!

I was really surprised BIG time by this scene…I mean Batgirl having sex with Batman???!

I mean ok, the whole movie is rather for adults than for kids…but holy Batsex, I didn’t think I would ever see that!

Even they only show the …foreplay, but it’s crystal clear what happens/will happen.

Can only guess if Barbara (as Batgirl unmasked herself) has then sex with Batman or Bruce…

But well, I can’t blame them 😉

 

Two things were quite odd about this scene. First, it’s another example of how careless many masked heroes and heroines get when they are on rooftops.

She unmasks herself on that rooftop! Ok, perhaps there is no tall building nearby, but that is very risky! What if someone sees that through a binocular and sees how Batgirl yanks off her mask (and other things? Very dangerous for her secret identity! And why does she unmask herself in the first place? She could have sex with Batman or Bruce with her mask on.

Also, her mask/cowl seems to be connected to her cape as it comes off (way too easily) as she yanks her cape away. Some more frames of her cowl leaving her face would have been great!

It looks quite sloppy this way from the animators.

However, it’s a pretty great scene and was surely a big surprise as I watched that movie back then.

I will re-watch the movie in the next weeks.

Here is the IMDB link to the movie:

Batwoman unmasked by the Riddler! [UPGRADE] + Batwoman news

In the very, very, very early days of this blog back in 2013 I made this post:

(…Don’t watch the video in that post yet!…)

https://maskripper.org/batwoman-unmasked-by-the-riddler

Well, luckily I have improved in some ways over all these years as there is nearly no text to it.

This absolutely great unmasking deserves an UPGRADE! A BIG one!

I wanna present the video in a longer version and in an HD version today.

Plus I wanna give it a big upgrade on the text part also.

So, let’s start with a preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

First of all, this is an early Batwoman version (Katrina Moldoff) before Kate Kane and Ryan Wilder appeared way later on.

I think her costume is overall ok, but I’m not a fan of that mask that is basically just a big version of an eye mask and doesn’t hide much.

But well, that was basically everything negative I have to say about that scene 😉

She fights really well and brings down the Riddler, but then she gets careless and lets her guard down.

I love how he uses this situation to his advantage and just goes for her mask, unlike so many other villains.

He knows how important her secret identity is to her, and he has seen the reporters, so he knows how devastating the effect of the unmasking would be.

The ripping sound as the mask gets yanked away from her face is awesome, even not 100% logical as it’s hard to say where that sound actually is coming from as it sounds as the fabric gets ripped. And her mask isn’t really attached to anything….as it seems.

But ok, not important as the sound is soo great 😉

Her reaction to it is great and she is really surprised and terrified by his move! Maybe that explains why she moves her head around and thereby is presenting her unmasked face to the reporters which makes the unmasking so much worse for her.

Even it would have been bad enough if “only” he would know, as he could use that knowledge against her.

He really enjoys the whole unmasking and how he defeated her completely with it. I wish many more villains would think like him! (#hallo TV show/movie writers)

And all that was completely improvised as he just saw her for the first time some minutes ago.

Also, a nice aspect as Batman comments the unmasking as a “dirty trick” from him.

The facts that the reporter immediately recognize her famous face and the newspaper with “Katrina exposed!” are additional bonuses!

So much to love about this scene!

Here is the IMDB link to that episode:

+ Some news on the Batwoman TV show:

Well, after a break of (nearly) 2 months the show is finally returning with new episodes the next Wednesday (9 PM on the CW), January 12.

It feels much longer to me and I am thrilled that there will be finally new episodes!

There will be 6 more episodes in this second half of season 3 (episodes 8-13).

Still, there has been no news about a possible season 4, but I bet there will be news on that VERY soon.

In the meantime the news arrived that the CW is actually up for sale:

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/business/business-news/the-cw-for-sale-warnermedia-viacomcbs-1235070616/

Very hard to say what that would mean to Batwoman, the Arrowverse, and all the other shows on the CW.

So, I don’t know if a new owner would be good or bad news. First, that sale actually has to happen…

P.S.:

I switched most of the videos that were “unlisted” lately back to the “public” on Youtube since the Maskripper Youtube channel isn’t in danger anymore for now.

A gorgeous art thief and a muscleman!

For today I do have a short but pretty cool (and new) scene!

I watched this movie some days ago and was very much surprised by that scene.

And it features two absolute Hollywood A-listers!

And here is the video:

A gorgeous art thief and a muscleman!

Yeah, it’s only a short scene, but how great it is to

Spoiler title
have Wonder Woman herself…..Gal Gadot under that mask?!?

I love how she uses the mask to blend in with the other cops/guards who caught the thief and the priceless egg he had stolen.

Of course, I would rather have The Rock catch her, and then they would fight and he would yank at that mask.

But she would use her skills and cleverness to stop the unmasking and escape him…..this time.

Later on, in the movie she would have another scene where he would finally unmask her 😉

I can only recommend this movie, as it not only has 3 really cool actors as the main cast, but it also is pretty funny most of the time.

The action scenes are good as well and you can see how the streaming services invested so much money in it.

Black Scorpion TV show – The best scenes from the best episodes – [Episode 19]

Ok, it is time to have another post about the legendary Black Scorpion TV show!

Now all my 3 favorite episodes are covered here.

This one is about the most famous unmasking that happened in the show.

If you don’t know it, I really envy you!

The show is in my Hall of Fame and if you are into masked women, this TV show is an absolute MUST have!

Today, it’s all about episode 19….with “biggest” unmasking!

And being embedded in a TV show it’s really very suspenseful as you know these characters for some time already.

Normally I post the pictures before the video, but this time I wanna do it differently as the pictures give away every great scene of this video.

Warning!

For those who do not know the episode, I recommend strongly watching the video first (Google Drive link) …and then… scroll down further!

(The video combines the best Black Scorpion scenes of the episode….not all (that would be around 14 minutes in total))

I love the first scene with Black Scorpion and Steve as she kisses him but he calls out for his partner Darcy.

Darcy shows up and he mentions that he never saw Darcy and Black Scorpion at the same time…..well, he never got closer to solving that “mystery” 😉

Ok, I am not the biggest fan of unmasking tied-up heroines, but at least better than unconscious ones.

All in all, this is one of the very best unmaskings ever done!

It isn’t the first time in the season that Black Scorpion gets unmasked…but the only time someone finds out who she is! And to make it so much worse for her: He is also is exposing her to the whole world by taking that picture of her unmasked face and selling it to the press. Flashpoint totally ruins her secret identity and the police are chasing after her, especially Steve who is …quite….furious that Black Scorpion is actually Darcy, his partner!

I also like that this is a double unmasking as he first rips of her eye protection (against his laser thingy) and thereby can see her eyes.

The whole build-up is great as they talk about what he would gain from unmasking her.

Also, I love how he is teasing her as he even pretends to attack her. You can clearly see how afraid she is of what is about to happen. She knows exactly that she is finished once he rips her mask and wig off and thereby revealing Darcy Walker!

The final unmasking itself is a little flawed for me for two reasons:

  1. There is the fade to black and then the scene goes on (commercial break)
  2. They show his hand on her mask, then cut to him, then he already is pulling her mask and wig away. This was most likely done to be able to remove her black face paint around her eyes…and show her exposed face without it. Rather unrealistic…. but yeah, she would look a little weird with that “panda” eyes.

But her reaction is done so well! She is angry and frustrated and he enjoys his victory over her…verrry much. Especially interesting after he missed several chances in episode 3 to get a picture of her unmasked face.

The episode then takes the fantasy route as there is a clone of Darcy, so she can convince everyone that is (seemingly) isn’t Black Scorpion after all. But yeah, it’s very hard to think of a realistic approach to all of this, unless she would have a twin sister or someone who would convincingly be Black Scorpion and Darcy would show up next to her (like in season 1 of Batwoman with Julia as Batwoman for one episode).

This also is another good example of how much such a scene gets better if you are really invested in the characters. If you have seen all 18 episodes before, you are really invested in Black Scorpion. You know her very well by now and you also know Flashpoint and his plans from episode 3.

This makes the unmasking so much more impactful than it would be in 99,9% of the fetish videos for me.

That is why I am sooo interested in TV shows with masked women like Black Scorpion, Batwoman, Stargirl, and the Queen of Swords.

And hopefully, there will be more new shows in the future!

P.S.:

What I would give for a Blu-ray release of this show or an HD TV airing!
