    Dec 9, 2010, 1:53 PM - Selina Kyle from start to finish. #1

    This was a huge project for me ! By the time I acquired all my resources i had less then three days to fully complete the suit!
    Here is where the madness started,



    i have always been a HUGE comic book fan, I was just a little girl when batman returns came out , but in my opinion it was probably the last cool thing Tim Burton had graced us with, haha i was fascinated with his vision of Catwoman , i never really thought my face was built right for that mask in particular so , I experimented with some regular eyeshadow and junk makeup. Yep , laugh go ahead

    The more i looked at the make up job , the more i wanted to make a suit
    so i did!
    first i got a mask.

    interesting thing about this mask is , i had to hide my hair in it , my hair is past my tailbone. yep , that was a project on its own . After securing my hair to my head, I had sewn bra clasp like clamps to the slit down the back of the mask to seal it off completely once it was on
    Now i needed my suit ,
    this was a rough patch , my suit came EXTREMELY late


    and then all the customization (video i had made for the hunters lair)
    YouTube - makin a catwoman costume kinda sideways...





    and done!

    haha i made that prawn costume in between making my own, and the guy dressed as a prisoner , well he asked me to make him into a zombie prisoner so i was like ..absolutely ,we were on a train to the city so i put womans makeup on him and then i was like turn around i gotta put blood on you , and i dumped stage blood on his butt , im sure you guys can figure out what i made him into LOL

    That's alright every good costrume has a bit of it's owners blood built in. My fett has about 8 stitches worth of mine. The catwoman looks great, and man 3 days? my Fett has taken about 4 years now and I'm still tweaking and replacing.

    i would assume a fett costume would take A LOT more care and attention , the batman returns catwoman was meant to look ,roughed up stitched all over and there is really not much to it , well besides trying to survive while wearing it lol, i really look forward to making a female boba fett suit , im goin nuts trying to figure out what i am going to need , the dent in my wallet it will cause and if you lost some blood ill probably lose my leg in the process! lol... im really stoked about this though ... i have been doing my homework all over the internet trying to figure out how to build a helmet from scratch but i dont think its happening any time soon LOL ...as far as costume making goes im on the short yellow buss...ill keep my eyes open for sellers on here :>

    I'd suggest buying a helmet and making the armor. When people look at each other, the focus tends to be the face, so you want that to be the best.

    I got to see the original catwoman suit at the museum of modern art in NYC a while ago. It was pretty rough looking at this point. And TINY! I had no idea she was so small!

    Yeah , my laytex suit is embarrassingly tiny! hahah it has to fit skin tight though! So you are even mildly putting stress on it , it almost looks like the material is fighting to stay on your body! I have to agree with you on the helmet i will definitely buy a helmet! Since i am not going for a traditional male boba fett suit either the costume design can be very flexible , i will probably sketch a few concepts :->

    Hats' off to you.
    That came out real nice. I can't think of a Catwoman version that had long hair.....but I'm sure it would be very cool if done right....wink-wink!

    Great job!... Are you a member of the Brotherhood of the Bat? I have the same handle over there, I'm sure you'd get awesome reviews over there as well.
