Tag Archives: Catwoman


I began working on this costume in November of ’11 and didn’t actually end up taking photos of it until sometime in July of ’12… I’m not particularly thrilled with how it turned out (fabric choices). However, I do really like Catwoman as a character and had been eager to dress up as her. So, this is the result!

The bodysuit was really straighforward and I made up a quick pattern for the hood with cat ears (which I really wish I’d modified a little so that the point in the front didn’t flip up!). The whip was purchased online and I just added a little cat charm that I cut from aluminum. The glasses/goggles were also bought online and modified by taking off the earpieces and adding points to the tops.




While everyone and their mother is off having fantastic adventures at San Diego Comic Con, I am … not.  So, to distance myself (and my inner jealousy monster) from the stories of magical fairyland (SDCC) that are currently flooding my Twitter feed – I ran out to take some photos of this Catwoman costume from January.

I don’t like the fabric used for this- it was a sort of metallic black spandex (it was supposed to be a shiny stretch pvc/vinyl but… wasn’t).  I had brief delusions of making it out of latex (Guillem March’s and Adam Hughes’s Catwoman both seem to be fond of latex… )  I love the look of latex, but who in their right mind would fight/climb in it?  I wasn’t willing to tackle the task that would’ve been learning to work in latex at the time that I made this, so settled for this (much cheaper) alternative.
