The DD Fashion Spotlight!
Today Bombshell is blasting onto the scene! In her normal life she's Aria Conti, an explosives expert working for the United Nations, advising them on mine disposal. But she's also a superhero who tackles corruption and villainy under the guise of Bombshell, wearing a classic yet minimal costume all in glossy blue black… That's basically the theme of Bombshell: classic and minimal.
Bombshell's outfit comes in 5 simple main pieces: a bodysuit in glossy black, armoured black latex, with matching opera gloves, knee high boots, and domino mask, it's finished off with a svelte metallic cybernetic glove on her left hand that gives her colossal powers. The bodysuit is quite skimpy, low cut and off the shoulder at her large bust (obviously requiring a lot of structure to stay in place), and very high cut at the thighs and buttocks, doing the best to show off her ample curves. Her domino mask is small and leaves a lot of her lovely looks on show. The opera gloves come up to mid-bicep and do a lovely job of highlighting her bare shoulders through contrast. Her knee-high boots are armoured and meant for protection, the knee part is higher and provides extra cover. They again serve to contrast and highlight the curve of her thighs. The small cybernetic glove puts me in mind of art nouveau or even Witchblade.
Just a quick look at her alternative outfits here. We see her dressed as Aria Conti in her normal work clothes; it's standard yet slightly sexy office gear: white fitted blouse, short pencil skirt, stockings and high heels. In her Bombshell guise we see that she often accessorises her outfit with a large, brown, flowing trench-coat… More on that bellow.
We can see a few striking influences to her design, the main one that grabbed me was Major Motoko Kusanagi from Ghost in the Shell. You can see that in the glossy black, skin tight latex, skimpy outfit, with the minimal cybernetics, contrasted with her bare flesh and her flowing brown trench-coat, which was a very classic look for the Major throughout the Manga but less so in the anime. The other clue is in her name- an obvious pun on her explosives work but also a huge nod to the 1930s classic pinup art that inspired her look, from the beautifully styled side parted hair, to the leotard, boots and matching opera gloves. You can imagine her painted across the nose of a WW2 B-17 heavy bomber. You can also see shades of the classic Playboy Bunny outfit that had its height in the 1960s.
