Costume Information

I've always wanted cosplay a comic character and with this I finally got to do it!! x)

I love Cassandra as Batgirl, but I wouldn't want to do the mask! D:

So I was quite happy when I found out about her Black Bat alias, which looks so much cooler and I also bought some of the comics she's in!

It's quite awesome really and we had the coolest photo shooting with! :D

The costume wasn't all that hard :) Since I never made a full body suit before and had no clue about materials and how to make this I ended up buying a basic catsuit and then just changed quite a few things so it would fit me better :)

I then sewed the gloves and put artificial fingernails on it, which I painted black. Though the day of the shooting I actually managed to loose four of those nails XD"

The cape and bandages where easy enough to make, as were the belt and the Batman sign :)

I was actually most afraid of doing the mask and I needed quite a few try to create a paper pattern that would fit my face. Then I copied the outlined onto wonderflex and made the mask out of that!
Wonderflex is awesome! :D

I really like this cosplay, even though the tight bodysuit makes me feel kinda self-concious ^^"

heya, your black bat looks amazing! I've been using your photos to help with my own Black Bat, didn't realise you were on Cosplay Island! I hope I can do Cass as much justice as you've done (if that made any sense)
