ARROW: Costume Designs For 'Nyssa al Ghul'
Variations of Katrina Law's Nyssa al Ghul costume, that Arrow costume designer Maya Mani and costume illustrator Andy Poon collaborated on. Hit the jump to check out Andy's illustrations.
Nyssa, the less famous daughter of Ras Al' Ghul showed up in the latest episode of Arrow, titled 'Heir to the Demon. I was pretty excited about working on her. One, shes the daughter of Ras, whose named have been popping up here and there through out the season, and hes a major Batman villain. Two, she have never been realize in any medium besides the comic. I actually had to look up her history and who she is. I'm very familiar with Talia, but not Nyssa so it actually made it easier because I don't have an image already stuck in my head of what she looks like. I was working closely with costume designer Maya Mani of course, especially this one we wanted to use alot more texture and different elements that give her abit more eastern flavor. I think she looks awesome on screen, shes badass but also very elegant and sexy, its a good break from the more sleek, clean and realistic combat type modern villains. Shes one of my new favorite characters on the show that I worked on because she has that fantastical element while still feels realistic. - Andy Poon
