Batwoman actor Ruby Rose had an allergic reaction to part of her costume - specifically the adhesive that held her mask in place.

"I was allergic to my cowl, my mask." Rose said on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. "I was allergic to the adhesive tape so I had hives for a while. About five or six days in, it was like I was a pre-Proactiv 15-year-old child. And then when I took it off it was like a horror film ... We had to take everything out of it and put something else like cotton in there."

Rose praised the Colleen Atwood-designed suit overall however, saying it "feels like a second skin. You feel like you're faster and stronger and better and bulletproof."

"But you're none of those things," she quipped. "You're a little slower."

Here's the clip:

Rose debuted as Batwoman in CW's 2018 Arrowverse "Elseworlds" TV crossover. Batwoman season one premieres October 6 on CW. The show will also be part of this year's "Crisis on Infinite Earths" crossover, which also includes Arrow, Supergirl, Flash, and DC's Legends of Tomorrow.
