There’s no nice way to say this...she looks like a 1970’s street hooker. If cheap whore is what they were going for they hit their mark spot on. Also, I won’t say I was right when I said since they hired a black actress it meant she wouldn’t be orange, but....

Zoe Saladana as Gamora & Paula Patton as Garona. I just thought they were going to use make-up/SFX. You know,like Manhunter in Supergirl. (I'm unaware how often he's actually MH in that show though. I don't watch it.)

I know what you mean. I have seen other black cosplayers cosplay as Starfire and while they look Tamaranian, they don't quite have the full Starfire look.

...Bruh, her hair looks worse than the clothing.

I agree.

Even if they are still going to add special effects in later, it still looks terrible. I am not saying they have to be 100% faithful to the comics, but Starfire should still look like Starfire even in civilian clothes.

Is this for the CW or the DCEU? It's still better than Medusa' s costume though.

Yes, that was mentioned to me in back when Anna Diop was announced. I saw her inclusion as a statement DC was trying to make for this series about diversity and breaking away from expectations. Not everything is changing, but somethings are since DC had an opportunity to lead the Starfire character in this medium in a different direction. Marvel had the same opportunity with Iron-Fist Danny Rand, but they chose to go in a more traditional direction with the casting. I know many were hoping for an Asian actor in the role. For Kori, hiring a black actress meant that they wouldn't color over her blackness because that would weaken the authenticity of their position. Now, they might still do that by introducing some fictional camouflage device which allows her to appear completely human in public as a black woman while alien when the machine is off. I would find that discouraging, though as it sends the message that being who you actually are is not acceptable beit alien or black woman.

Anyway, here are some Robin picks from the set, too...

To the ‘Titans’ fans:

Yesterday a photo of me on set leaked online. And it was unfortunate because fans have been waiting MONTHS for a photo of ‘Starfire’ and a sloppy (😐) photo of me on a curb in 15 degree weather is what they got instead 😂 For the sake of our incredible fans - I hated that this is the first picture people are seeing. It’s out of context and it’s a misrepresentation of the incredible character I get to play. And also a misrepresentation of the phenomenal production behind it all.

With that said - the hate speech that followed was deplorable. And though I am highly unbothered 💅🏿 I do want to use this as an opportunity to say that tearing people down is not something that I tolerate. For myself or anyone else. Too often social media is abused by some who find refuge in the anonymity and detachment it provides: misused as a tool to harass, abuse, and spew hatred at others. This is weak, sad, and a direct reflection of the abuser.

Racist, derogatory, and/or cruel comments have nothing to do with the person on the receiving end of that abuse. And because I know this - I’m unfazed :) But for anyone out there who may not - I am here to remind you that whatever ugly and negative thing anyone ever chooses to say about you is always a reflection and revelation of themselves- it does NOT define you, and it certainly does NOT make you any less perfect than you are - Be you! Stay beautiful! Live breezy :) As always,

Much love 💕

The casting choice is still bizzare, and I honestly have little faith.

I get what you're saying, but that's confusing. Is it bad Manhunter & Miss Martian blend in as a Black man & white girl respectfully? I don't think her having a civilian cover would be bad at all. Pretty sure she doesn't want people starring every-time she goes out. More notably it shows there nothing wrong with being black,because that's what she's blending in as.

Most of the people who didn't know who Danny was,was expecting an Asian actor. Though that was a double edged sword anyway...because then people who want to be upset would easily go the "so every time there is an asian character,they have to know kung-fu?" route.

Wow,this is hard. easier to just make new characters..... but then people don't want to buy into the new characters. Nevermind,this is hard.

Oh, wow, what a f**king surprise. Turns out, the set photos that were leaked online with no context to them whatsoever were not an accurate representation of the actual final product. What a F**KING SHOCK!

That's almost in an impressive feat. Make a character look more like a whore while having on much more clothing.
