Summer Glau's reprogrammed Terminator Cameron in the TV show Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Chloe Moretz's vigilante Hit-Girl in the movie Kick-Ass have in common the fact that they are two of the most badass girls (well, technically a cyborg for one of them) in recent movie/tv show history. On the fashion front, Cameron and Hit-Girl's most iconic piece of clothing are without a doubt their purple leather jackets.
Summer Glau's character Cameron was very complex as she had to balance herself between human abilities and robotic nature. She was supported by tremendous outfits that enhanced sensitivity of the role. Her attractive leather jacket having purple color gained instant popularity after her role was introduced in the series and Cameron even showed concerns about it when the Connors where robbed. FYI, Summer Glau rocked on in a leather biker style jacket by Rock & Republic.
Find below a description as well as photos of the iconic purple leather jacket worn by Summer Glau as Cameron in 'Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles' in season 1 and 2 (and in promotional photos).

Hawkeye (Kate Bishop)
Hawkeye (Katherine "Kate" Bishop) is a fictional character. She is a member of the Young Avengers, a team of superheroes in the Marvel Comics' shared universe, the Marvel Universe. She is the third character and first female to take the Hawkeye name after Clint Barton of the Avengers and Wyatt McDonald of the Squadron Supreme. Her costume appearance is patterned on the first Hawkeye and Mockingbird.
There are some resemblances between Summer Glau as Cameron and The Avenger's Kate Bishop, don't you think?
Don't mess with girls wearing purple leather jackets!
Go behind the scenes of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles season 2 premiere "Samson & Delilah" with Summer Glau, Lena Headey and Thomas Dekker.
As you can see in these behind-the-scenes pictures, Summer Glau is sporting deep cuts all over her face and looks seriously badass as she was shooting a scene for the first episode of TSCC season 2 in downtown Los Angeles. Also on set were Lena Headey and Thomas Dekker, who were covered with cuts and bruises. Thomas and Lena were seen laughing in between takes, despite their characters being the target of a glitchy Terminator.
Enjoy these behind-the-scenes pictures of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles 2.01 'Samson & Delilah' that were release on June 2, 2008.
Leather boots are an integral part of the Terminator's look...just ask Cameron phillips or Sarah Connor in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
Anyone notice the costuming choices as far as female footwear goes in TSCC? Both Lena Headey and Summer Glau wear these multi-strap biker boots - almost constantly. I guess they make her look like a bad ass.
Take for example the black leather boots that Cameron was wearing in TSCC season 2 (photos below taken from episodes 2.08 'Mr Ferguson is Ill Today', 2.15 'Desert Cantos' and 2.21 'Adam Raised a Cain'); she uses her own sensuality in order to mess with John's attraction for her and kicks major butt wearing distressed leather 'Kate Motorcycle Boots' by high-end Italian brand Golden Goose.

Description: Distressed leather taper toe boots with studded shaft, topline and buckle strap at ankle. Leather sole. Available in black.

Check out four deleted scenes from 'Firefly: Browncoats Unite', Science Channel's 10th anniversary celebration of Joss Whedon's cult series Firefly that was broadcast on November 11, 2012.
The 60-minute special uncovered more secrets as part of an oral history of the franchise and included exclusive cast interviews and the San Diego Comic-Con panel. Joining Joss Whedon and Nathan Fillion for the fun are loyal crewmembers Sean Maher, Summer Glau, Adam Baldwin, Morena Baccarin, Alan Tudyk, Gina Torres and Jewel Staite, along with executive producer Tim Minear and executive story editor Jose Molina.
However, there was nearly two hours of extra footage that just couldn't be squeezed into the hour-long special. Fans had a chance to unlock deleted scenes and cutting room floor footage from the special with the network’s “Flock to Unlock” campaign. Basically, a new video would unlock for every 5,000 tweets that enter the Twitter 'verse.
We have gathered for you some of the best moments from the Firefly 10th anniversary reunion - released on the Science Channel's website - that will never air on television. Enjoy these four HD exclusive footage from the Firefly 10th Anniversary special:

Summer Glau, Morena Baccarin, Jewel Staite and Sean Maher participated to a Firefly panel at Dragon Con 2010, with special guest stars (via prank phone calls) Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk. The cast was having an excellent time – they’re clearly friends in real life – as they reminisce about the show and answer fans’ questions.

Although Summer Glau played in Joss Whedon's tv show Dollhouse, she didn't play a "doll" but a scientist with a trouble past. That said, Summer Glau has a thin frame, a radiant, porcelain complexion, big eyes and delicate doll-like features, it is therefore no surprise that some people refers to her as a doll.
We scoured the Summer Glau Wiki gallery for some of the better shots of Summer, and compiled what we feel is the best doll-like photos we could find, where Summer's face, body or pose bring to mind the classic girls' doll. Not surprisingly, some of these photos are taken from photo shootings inwhich the heavy makeup or photoshop use adds to this impression of human doll.
Check out these 10 doll-like photos of Summer Glau, in no particular order. Which ones do you like best? And of course feel free to submit photos that you feel deserve to be listed here.
The photos above are taken from the following albums in the Gallery (left-to-right, top-to-bottom): Doll Photo shoot by Tyler Shields, Comic Book & SciFi Convention LA, The women of 'Serenity' Photo Shoot, TSCC Promotional Photos - Season 1, Fox 'So Fresh' 2008, 'Serenity' Cast Photo Shoot, TSCC Promotional Photos - Season 2, Rüdy Waks photo shoot, Marcel Hartmann for Serenity premiere at the 31th American Deauville Film Festival, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles premiere in Los Angeles.
We have the feeling Summer Glau's role as a Terminator in The Sarah Connor Chronicles may have reinforced that impression since a Terminator is supposed to be an emotioneless killer; but of course fans like you and me know better and Summer's Cameron was thrilling and compelling to watch throughout.
