Wish I could have met you strutting around in this. Sadly I cant make Kita this year :( So you MUST wear this again some other time, then I can superhero it up too and get some snazzy photos with ya. :P
Claws - are both pretty and dangerous looking at the same time. :) I guess you plan to sew them straight onto the gloves?

well, it'd be more stumbling than strutting XD aww =[ I'll definitely wear it again, yeah I like that plan!! =D
the great thing about these ones is that I don't need to; http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/220918871248?var=520060356915&ssPageName=STRK:...

updating (Posted 30th August 2012)

so I'm updating this costume, as I've mentioned before. Originally I was planning on just updating the boot area and gloves, however I'm now completely updating the catsuit too. I'll be getting a new catsuit, exactly like the one I have for comic Black Widow, and will be removing the white fur collar lining from my old catsuit and using that for my Catwoman instead. I'm also going to be using the same belt for Black Cat as I'm going to be getting for Catwoman.

alternate (Posted 15th August 2012)

so I'm gonna put together an alternate version of this, its kinda a mix of both versions of her costume but not exact. I've finally got some fantastic claws for this, and I'll be adding a belt as well as a black plait headband and white fluffy legwarmers and wrist cuff thingys. plus ive got my proper mask now.

claws (Posted 7th May 2012)

so here are the gloves with attached claws I'd ordered before kita that didn't arrive in time. I'm gonna take the nails off these gloves and add them to my actual ones (the original glove fabric is ripping)

FIN! (Posted 6th April 2012)

So, I've trimmed the fur lining on the collar a little so that it joins together better when zipped up. And I've bought some claws (pic from very first journal) and am going to chop them down to wrist short gloves but I will eventually get the gem claws (second journal pic) Also the second glove is finished and am nearly done with second boot cover. Just gotta wait for the mask to arrive now, but if not I'm gonna get a cheap black half mask from a fancy dress shop and chop it up into the proper mask shape as a backup.

finishing (Posted 28th March 2012)

so only two things left to do;
order the mask (image)
and finish the other arm and leg covers (as in add the fur)

and then its done! I'm going to trim the fur on the collar so it comes together better. and I also need to change the ring on the zip a little, it needs an extra little ring so that it doesn't twist.

feet (Posted 19th February 2012)

so, instead of using the thigh boots (which putting the fur on to is a frigging nightmare!) I stumbled across the original socks that came with my Seras costume. Now although they were shit for Seras, they'd worked perfectly for Black Cat (since she was flat feet) so I'm gonna add the fur to those instead! plus they're the nearly the exact same fabric as my gloves! (and I'll be able to go skating across the marble floors at kita XD )
I'll get some pics up once they're finished, unfortunately I'm STILL waiting for the claws and mask to arrive (/I know they would though as they're coming from America and Hong Kong)

so... (Posted 24th January 2012)

well the final bits have been ordered; the mask and the faux fur.
unfortunately I can't order those lovely claws yet as apparently they don't ship to UK, but hopefully that'll change at some point.
anyway, technically this is finished now (hence the change to 'complete'). the mask might take a while to get here as its coming from Texas! once the fur arrives I'll add it to the suit etc. and get progress pics up.

progress (Posted 23rd December 2011)

right, so not much has happened with this so far.

I've sorted out the collar (the silver bell is entertaining as hell!)

The hands are a right pain, originally I was going to simply buy a pair of black gloves with claws attached but then realised that it was going to be too awkward since the gloves had black fur attached which needed removing (which would have made them too short) instead I'm going to get some plain long black gloves, attached some white fur, and for the claws I'm going to get some of these (pic)

I've added the ring to the front zip on the suit

things I still need to get;
white faux fur
mask
gloves
claws

gloves (Posted 11th December 2011)

so the next thing to do is get the gloves.
as you can see (pic) they have claws (yay!) but some stupid black fur (boo!) on them. so, once I get them I'm going to see how its attached and do one of two things; either remove the black fur and eventually add the white, OR chop it off.
hopefully I should be sorting them out next weekend.

after that the next things I need to sort/get are the mask and the collar.
