“I’ve got like my thigh-highs and a halter, but the thing about that, and that was important, is that it doesn’t matter what I’m wearing as long as we’re all aware of who she is,” she reasons. “She’s very strong and she’s very lethal and she’s very powerful, and it doesn’t really matter what she’s wearing as long as you have that strength and that presence.”

There’s also the fact that it takes a 2 women to help her put on the suit, as she told Conan O’Brien during San Diego Comic-Con 2015.
