My Adam Hughes Catwoman outfit
Hi guys! I hope I am posting this in the right forum. My name is Jennifer, I live in Gothenburg (Sweden) and I'm a huge fan or Marvel and DC Comics. I just recently found an interest in cosplay and I'm currently working on my first outfit. It was a pretty easy choice really, Catwoman has always been my favourite character! I love Adam Hughes artwork so my outfit will be based on his work and the "statue of AH!". It will not be perfect by any means, I'm more aming for "similar looking" really Anyways, so far I have made the goggles, gloves and boots. I'm also working on the belt and have ordered a bullwhip and whipholder. A latex catsuit and hood is also in the making.

After countless hours or browsing the web I found some sunglasses large enough for the job. They started out as regular sunglasses so I had to sculpt on top of them and add a strap. The strap is an adjustable rubber strap from a pair of diving googles. The "ears" I made from a couple of plastic poker chips which I cut and grinded and superglued on. Then I painted the glasses with black nailpolish and bent them a bit in the middle, by heating them with a lighter, as they were a bit too wide to fit my face.






For the gloves, I used a pair of leather gloves and some steel claw rings. I attached the claw rings from the inside so that I can't drop them. I wanted strong claws that actually works which is why I decided to go with this option, even though they do not look as in Adam Hughes artwork. If I change my mind I figured I always have the option to grind off the rhine stones and paint the claws black, but I kindah like the look of them. The claw rings has lots of support on the finger so as long as you curl your hand a bit you can hit something really hard without hurting yourself.




For the boots I actually used two pair. I used a pair of military boots as a base and then cut and superglued part of a pair of winter boots on top. Then I added some straps, buckles and some other details to make them resemble the "statue of AH!".












I hope you like what I've made so far! I will take some photos of the belt when it's finished and photos of me wearing the whole outfit as soon as my catsuit and hood is finished. Now I just have to get a Batman suit for my hubby so we can attend some cosplay events. I can't wait!

Here are some reference photos of the "statue of AH!"...
















...and of Adam Hughes artwork

Thanks! I have done custom latex clothing before, for everyday use that is, not for cosplay, but the rest is new to me.

I'm quite happy with the results so far but both the goggles and boots could need some touching up. If you have any suggestions please let me know!

I would like to cut the inner boot shaft a bit so that it only sticks up a little bit above the outer one, but I'm not sure if superglue would be strong enough as I need to pull the boot-top when I put on the boots. So I still have to figure out a good solution for that.

Also, the nail polish on the goggles didn't cover very well so you can still see the uneven surface underneith. Maybe a few more layers would do. Otherwise I will need another paint.

I haven't even finished the outfit yet and already I'm feeling a little naughty. I just couldn't resist to sharpen my claws.

Please, please! Can you tell me where you have bought the goggles?

Well, the photos are beyond all hope I'm afraid, but here they are. The latex shine was hardly visible so I had to apply alot of contrast effect to the photos for you to see it. I will take better photos when I'm back from the holidays! In these photos the corset isn't tightened. The outfit will look much better when the corset is fully closed. It doesn't look good without the corset unfortunately because I'm not as skinny as I used to be. Since these photos I have added a large chrome ring to the front zipper. I have also started working on the hood, but tomorrow I'm leaving on holiday and will not be back until new years eve. Btw, I hadn't even brushed my hair when I took these photos so I cut away my head from the photos!
