Redditor mmwest92, also known as Mary West Cosplay, debuted her Catwoman suit at C2E2. She says it’s still in progress because she’s learning as she goes, but I think she did a great job assembling the bodysuit. The costume started out as a variation of the one Catwoman wears in the Arkham City video gam, but Mary opted not to go full latex in order to keep mobility. She even learned how to use a whip:
After a ton of research I found an awesome YouTube vid on how to make cheap fast whip that actually works I also looked at some of the easiest whip cracks and started from there. It’s pretty good and I’m starting to get the hang of it but I want to make a better one with paracord soon. Getting water on it made a super cool effect and hearing that thing actually crack in such a large open space like McCormick was badass.
You can see several more photos of the finished costume and the work in progress at Imgur.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Updates to this page will happen frequently. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Specific actions each week noted and shared as part of our all-company “State of the Fruit” notes and all-company meeting. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
