A new image reveals a more detailed look at the Batgirl costume from the 2002 Birds of Prey series.
Birds of Prey was a one-and-done series on the old WB network. It lasted one season, but it gave us a badass look into the powerful female world of DC Comics. The series followed Huntress, Batgirl/Oracle and the daughter of Black Canary in a version of Gotham city that was abandoned by Batman. The series featured a Killing Joke-esque sequence where Batgirl is shot by The Joker, turning her into a paraplegic and ultimately into Oracle.
The actress who played Batgirl recently posted a picture of herself in the Batgirl costume while her brother visited the set. In the photo, you get a great look at the Batgirl costume and all the details that went into it. You can check out the image below.
