[EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS] Sneak Peek at the Shadowhunters' Costumes

After endless hours of cutting and stitching, our Shadowhunters costumes start to take shape. The wardrobe department was determined to keep the proud owner of this bad-ass jacket under wraps, but they couldn’t keep quiet for long… 

It's Alec. It's totally Alec.

Alec’s demon-slaying attire in action. Pretty perfect, don’t you think? Also? Is it us or is Matthew Daddario REALLY good with a bow and arrow?

Stay tuned. We've got more.

The costumes set to bring our favorite characters of the Shadow world to life are ready and waiting. We’ve spotted a serious bit of silver sparkle on this rail. (Paging Magnus Bane.)

Team: Which character's look are you most excited about?
