so after a complete remake and one trip to nyc later I finally have shots of my new Catwoman cosplay! Spent a evening shimmying and climbing my way up a story or so of exterior building pipes in Brooklyn it was a beautiful view, I totally see why so many masked vigilantes hang out on their building top perches around cities!

Here comes the first picture of my Catwoman costume which I wore at the bookfair in Leipzig past weekend. I promised to write a proper comment yesterday - so here it comes!
Naraku, Lie 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, Naraku 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" set?
My tuned up Catwoman costume - had to make a couple of changes,since the latex-like fabric started peeling.. I mean the latexy surface so I decided that adding a little bit of lycra to the picture will be a good idea, plus the combination of two fabrics will make it more interesting...also I lost some weight so a redo of the catsuit was inevitable (beside the fabric issues). The design is heavily inspired by Catwoman's costume from the game Batman: Arkham City Photo by Andrey Spiridonov
