Entertainment Weekly is definitely the source to go to this week. They’re just giving us some amazing content, as is often the case. They’ve provided us our first look at Arrow‘s Dina Drake (Juliana Harkavy) in full Black Canary attire. Harkavy will be officially suiting up as the Canary in season 6 on The CW series and it’s a great look!
As you can see in the image below, Dinah will be rockin’ what looks like a an almost all leather costume, for maximum protection, with yellow accents and ¾ length leather gloves with forearm strike plating. Because you cannot see any of the costume from the waist down, one can only assume that the leggings are similar to the tunic in that it’s all leather except for some stretch material for flexibility and, more than likely, is completed with black leather boots for kicking criminal ass! Dinah’s baton has also been redesigned and slimmed-down and extended in the form of a staff as the character utilizes in the comics. This new costume was designed by costume design master, Maya Mani.
This costume first-look was part of an extensive interview with Arrow’s executive producer, Wendy Mericle, was more than thrilled to be able to finally not only talk about the character’s new look, but also to be able to provide the first image of it as well. You can read Entertainment Weekly’s full interview with Mericle here.
Arrow returns Thursday, Oct. 12 at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
