Photo: SHIELD’s “Mockingbird” Costume Reveal

Adrianne Palicki made her first appearance last night on ABC’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” as Bobbi Morse, a character who will become the Marvel superheroine Mockingbird. Now, Marvel.com have posted the first official image of Palicki in Mockingbird’s tactical outfit along with some concept art of the design. Costume Designer Ann Foley also spoke about the suit:

“I looked at all of her comic appearances and really wanted to try to bring elements of the look from the comics into the costume that we’re doing now for the show because I know it’s important to the fans. It’s important to me to keep certain elements, but we had to change it, obviously, for practicality, because it had to fit into our world. It had to have a kind of tactical feeling to it too so that it made sense in our universe.

She’s got rivets that are in the straps across her chest, and those are there as a tribute to the buttons that go down the side of her [most recent] costume [in the comics], as well as the colors that we were using, [which] are a tribute as well. Her colors are navy blue and white with a little bit of black in there, [but] white would not have been pretty on camera so we changed it to grey.

[We] still tried to maintain the original style of what was in the comic book because [with] that white panel that goes up her center and down her legs, [so] we’ve mirrored that in her costume but in gray instead of white.”

Palicki is expected to slip on the outfit and show it off in next week’s episode.
