Nicole Maines, who plays Nia Nal on the CW’s Supergirl has claimed that she has seen Dreamer’s costume and according to the actress, it is the best one on the series.
The latest season of the hit CW series will see Maines suit up as Dreamer at some point in the near future. The first-ever transgender superhero has made history and the actress portraying her could not be more excited to rock the characters superhero fatigues. Maines told reporters during a visit to the Supergirl set yesterday about how her excitement for the Dreamer costume.
“I’m so excited. I’m trying to conduct myself on set in a professional manner, and be like ‘I’m not completely obsessed with the super-suit,’ but it’s all I think about. Every morning I wake up, ‘I’m getting a supersuit!’ I’m going to sleep, ‘I’m getting a super-suit!’ I’m really, really excited. It’s gonna be gorgeous! I have the best super-suit. I do.”
When the actress was asked what it was like wearing Dreamer’s costume, she made some “constricting” comments about the fitting.
“Constricting. Tight. For the first time it was for a fitting, so they have the model and they have your sizes, but when you first put it on in person, they kind of realize, ‘Okay, this needs to go up more, this needs to be hemmed,’ or ‘wow, you can’t get your arm through this.’ So, constricting.”
The character is based on the Legion of Super-Heroes member initially known as Dream Girl in comics, also known as Nura Nal. The character was created by Edmond Hamilton and John Forte in 1964. In the glossy pages of DC comics, Dream Girl was an alien with precognitive abilities. The Dreamer identity didn’t come to life until 1996 in an arc developed by Tom Peyer, Tom McGraw, and Lee Moder. And now she will be brought to the small screen in what promises to be one of the best wardrobe choices the Supergirl series has ever seen. Make sure to keep an eye out for Dreamer in the upcoming episodes of Supergirl.
