Here comes the first picture of my Catwoman
costume which I wore at the bookfair in Leipzig
I promised to write a proper comment yesterday - so here it comes!Naraku
and I decided to cosplay the Gotham City Sirens
on our car ride home from Connichi
back in September 2011. It was quickly decided who was supposed to cosplay as which character, so Lie
went for Harley Quinn
went for Poison Ivy
and I went for Catwoman
Since we wanted our costumes to look as professional and realistic as possible we ordered black and red vinyl from an American online store. The material was rather expensive, but most definitely worth the money.
Making the costume took me about one week in total. I made every piece of it myself: The suit, the cap, the gloves, the belt - even the goggles. (The goggles are made from KobraCast 4 Art
, crafting foam and Wobrla's Finest Art
) The only pieces I bought were the boots which I painted with black gloss paint and to which I added Selina
's typical buckles.
Besides minor flaws I'm rather satisfied with the way this costume turned out. Parts I would like to revise are the cowl, the goggles and the belt. I wonder if anybody would be interested in buying a "Catwoman: Cowl & Goggles"
as Catwoman [Selina Kyle]
