Cosplayer Dokudel > Costume of Catwoman from DC Comics
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- This is technically version 2 of this costume. Version 1 was done at NYCC 2011 with a bat villians group. It wasnt fitted well and I didnt finish the mask.
This version was a complete upgrade. The mask and bodysuit is made out of purple cotton interlock, which is a 2 way stretch fabric. I made the suit a one seam bodysuit, and has the uglyiest zipper on the planet.
The mask caused difficulties as I made the purple part an outer layer to go under another mask. That didnt work as I didnt have as much of the fabric left over. That is a part I will venture back to.
The gloves which I lost the original pair, I purchased a new pair of gloves. (Now I made a newer set of gloves which I love how they look now.) I purchased a pair of "witch" nails and attached them to the gloves. I love the look of it and peoples eye are drawn to the length of the nails and love the look.
The boots were purchased online and I feel they are the right length and feel to Catwoman.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I love everything about Catwoman... wait I take that back I love everything about Catwoman except her current look. I got into the Catwoman comics back in the early 90's and own every issue of it. I am really not much of a comic fan but the few comics I do read or dabble into usually sparks my fancy.
