One of the most iconic scenes from the Ghost in the Shell anime film sees its main character, Major Motoko Kusanagi, stripping off her clothes and dropping from the top of a massive skyscraper to assassinate a target, all while seemingly fully nude. After her assassination attempt is successful, it's revealed she's not actually naked, but rather wearing a thermoptic suit that allows her to become invisible, getting away without a trace. The thermoptic suit is a staple of the Ghost in the Shell franchise, but anime has an easier time getting away with having its lead character move around seemingly unclothed and invisible than a live action movie starring Scarlett Johansson does. The filmmakers of 's Ghost in the Shell adaptation knew from the start that they wanted to include the thermoptic suit in their movie, but it was just a matter of adapting it for the big screen in a way that stayed true to the source material while also working with MPAA regulations. The solution was to design a look that made it clear Major was wearing a suit while also giving off the effect of her being nude.
