Description
Im really pleased with how this cosplay turned out. It was very warm but also very cool at the same time? Its a full rubber latex suit, with white stiching (that took ages to sew, so much!) lace up boots, corset, gloves with claws(that also took ages to make! cat cowl and finally the whip.


Now all i need is new claws and a new corset. Just for screen accuracy.

The cowl sadly isnt made by myself, but bought off of a bust of catwoman made the very talented Shawn Reeves:

OH..WOW..!
Ha ha you have my deepest respect..now that I am familiar with latex rubber. Even with talc it's a biyatch to get into, aint it? :D
This should look REALLY Fab though. I hope it does get finished in time for LFCC. I so want to see this. And piccies is a must.

Now the important thing is - which day? (I think I can only manage one)

I mean it! ^_^

The only thing poss to improve for screen accuracy is the boots. If you can find some victorian style boots that would make this abs perfect! I've seen some but they're usually like £60 up (!!)

link...ok :) Michelle's screen costume boots had platform soles (maybe as much as an inch) which meant the heels looked even higher, (like modern 'cheat shoes' )- but I spotted these boots in Koozuland and I think they look pretty good.

The price isn't too bad either, for patent leather. But if you want the exact style keep trawling eby from time to time with your shoe size and "lace up boots" in the search and you might find the exact ones.
