Catwoman Cosplay

Catwoman 2

Catwoman has worn several different outfits over her years in comic books, television, and film, and one of MsValentine’s favorite stories featuring her is Hush. The story by Jeph Loeb and Jim Lee is one of those Batman stories that most people seem to like, and besides enjoying the graphic novel, MsValentine appreciated that Catwoman wasn’t wearing six inch heels.

She researched materials and end up using a 4 way stretch matte vinyl for the catsuit. Here’s how she made the gloves and cowl:

The gloves were made using the good ol’ hand turkey method, but I needed a little something extra to give the claw tips at the end. Thankfully I was able to find a really cool tutorial by Crash Culture that recommends patterning the fingertips into points instead of being round. You then put points of fun foam on the inside of the fingertips, this way when you turn the glove you know have claws!

For the cowl I hunted around online and found a great pattern as a base to work off of. Lucky for me the cowl in the comic is designed to have seams going down the front so I was able to make this in pieces and put it together. It took me about two tries and I managed to get the shape right on the second try. The ears are 3mm fun foam that cut and shaped and then covered in a single layer of vinyl. They are attached to the cowl with E6000 glue.
