I wanted to make Catwoman because I was absolutely in love with her Arkham City design. The different textures and red tinted goggles caught my eye. Plus, I’m a sucker for bodysuits, so I’m always up for a costume like this one!
I was on a time limit with this costume, so I only had about 4 days to make it. Because of this, I sacrificed accuracy for efficiency, and took some artistic liberties with the bodysuit. I patterned out the bodysuit by using an simple existing pattern, and then drawing all the new seam lines out on a mock up. Made the goggles by resin casting the frames, using transparent Worbla (which I dyed using Rit Dyemore) for the lenses, and adding a strap made from spandex. My cat choker is also resin cast.
My cowl was bought from Hero Craft Creations on Etsy, which I altered to have a buckle on the neck straps.
