The Mortal Instruments has released several new images over the last few days. Today’s images, however, give us brand new insight into the world of the shadowhunters.

The images show various scenes from the film. Some of the most notable images are the ones with a shirtless Jace and then a different one with a shirtless Simon. We also get our first look at the steles as they will be used in the film. Jace is using his to create a rune on his arm. There is also the witchlight which Jace is holding in the image with Clary. There are so  many little details that we are seeing for the first time. The image of Clary in front of the portal is one of the coolest we have seen so far.

The images also give us a great look at the costumes. There is definitely a lot of leather and Clary’s thigh high leather boots are pretty insane. Are the costumes what you expected? Jace’s leather hoodie jacket is pretty cool but the verdict is still out on Alec’s leather jumpsuit.
