Although Glee's Sue Sylvester will never change her stripes, she may be ditching the track suits.
“She’s the principal now, and she’s maturing and eager to rally the school and make it the best it can be,” said actress Jane Lynch, who plays Sue in the Fox television show Glee. “She’ll keep the stripes but she may lose the outfit,” Lynch told the Journal at the Fox Fall Eco-Casino Party held at Bungalow Monday night.
As the writers reconvene over the hiatus, Lynch said she’s excited to keep going as her character is evolving. “There’s just nothing she won’t do for the success of the school,” Lynch said.
It turns out that after all these years, Sue’s powers were kept in her collection of Adidas tracksuits. Take them away, and she has nothing!

Rooney Mara, Kate Beckinsale, Chloe Moretz and Penelope Ann Miller were among the guests who came out to celebrate costume design in TV and film at the 14th annual Costume Designers Guild Awards on Tuesday night at the Beverly Hilton.
"We are celebrating the spirit of collaboration between actors and costume designers," said actress Jane Lynch, the mistress of ceremonies for the evening. She went on to talk about her experience on "Glee" with costume designer Lou Eyrich, who got her start way back when as a stylist for Manhattan Transfer.
"The first fitting, she gave me an off-the-rack Adidas track suit," Lynch remembered. "She had ripped it apart. But I am so hard to fit, she just said, ‘We are going to have to make them for you.’ Now, I have 35 custom track suits in my wardrobe closet. And you won’t rip that track suit off my body until it goes into the Smithsonian."
After being introduced by “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy, Eyrich was honored with a Career Achievement in Televison Award, as well as winning the award for Outstanding Contemporary TV Series, along with co-designer Jennifer Eve, for “Glee.”
"This job is like being handed a script, pushed off a cliff, and having to have the crew dressed and ready before you hit the ground," Eyrich said in her acceptance speech.
