Heir To The Demon - Nyssa Al' Ghul

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.
