Speedy (Willa Holland)
“Who knew Thea Queen could sew?” jokes Mani (who also created Brandon Routh’s Atom costume and is working on the upcoming spinoff DC’s Legends of Tomorrow). “The idea was that she took Roy’s [Arsenal] costume and reconfigured it, so that’s what I did.” That meant adding a more feminine touch tailored to the petite Holland while maintaining the leather, the shoulder details, and a similar hood. “I like to approach the design of a costume by looking at the iconic lines of the characters,” offers Mani. “They have huge fanbases, and it’s out of respect to those fans that I would put in those details.” Fun fact: In keeping with the Queen family’s apparent footwear of choice, Speedy’s boots are also souped-up Nike Frees.
