This looks so cute! Great idea, best of luck with the tailoring

Many thanks - we're putting off too much work on this for the mo as we're both worried about getting it to fit and then her growing.....

We've taken the original vinyl pictures down as we're going down the "proper" route now and will make from scratch.

There's a way you can make a whip from electrical tape

This looks like it'll be great! I hope I get to see it. I've seen some good whips made by braiding paracord. Or, if you buy online from somewhere like Ann Summers, they deliver very discreetly.

Starbucks dad posted on 4 February, 2012 - 21:40
Paracord, of course! Many thanks

So cool! Looking forward to seeing this :)

Starbucks dad posted on 1 March, 2012 - 21:33
Thanks! We start work on earnest on it this weekend, so fingers crossed....

hay, sorry to spam and I dunno if you're planning on doing this costume (which is epic btw!!!) to May expo but there's a Batman/DC meet up on Saturday and it'd be awesome if you could come?? if you know anyone else that might be going that'd be interested please direct them to the forum post. Thanks!

Looking good so far ^_^ In case you're new to catsuits, be careful to leave room for movement if your leatherette isn't very stretchy. A lack of stretch becomes really noticable in a skin-tight suit. Best of luck with it ^_^

RenDMC - Thanks for the invite! Eleanor's delighted to be asked and will be there. Blobfish - thanks. We're new to everything! Good point and thanks for the warning. The fake leather seems to be quite stretchy so we should be OK but I take your point and we'll careful on the fitting. Thanks.

If you need any advice let me know - I've rather 'been there, done that and broken the seat of my catsuit by trying to sit down' ;). Can't wait to see this when it's done though. And thanks for the nice comment on my catwoman - hopefully I'll be rewearing it to May expo, so I'll hopefully see you guys at the DC photoshoot ^_^

Starbucks dad posted on 6 March, 2012 - 19:47
:) Many thanks for the offer. Most grateful. Look forward to seeing you around.

Hehe, thanks Numta. We're going for the big push this Saturday so should get it all finished by then.

Amazing costume!! Wish I could have attended Expo this year with Riddles to have photos taken with your little girl! So well made!

quixoticschlemiel posted on 27 May, 2012 - 07:51
Thank you so much for coming yesterday, it was so much fun to meet El and I had a really good time! Thank you very much for coming!

Starbucks dad posted on 27 May, 2012 - 13:36
Nixie, thanks for this - she worked really hard on this one, and it turned out to be a lot harder than we thought, but it didn't come out too badly in the end. We'll catch you in October maybe. QS - Absolute pleasure - it's us who owe you guys the thanks for letting her hang out with you for the shoots.

Nomes posted on 27 May, 2012 - 14:51
Great stage presence! I saw you in the distance a couple of time yesterday and then again in the masquerade. Fantastic.

TheGyroCaptain posted on 27 May, 2012 - 20:20
It looks wonderful ! It's a great thing seeing a cosplay coming together c:

Starbucks dad posted on 27 May, 2012 - 20:28
Thanks Nomes! Sorry we didn't see you but the place was packed on Saturday (as you know!) Cheers Sollux, agreed. It never ceases to amaze me how the various scraps of stuff we make suddenly transform into something recognisable!

Numta posted on 28 May, 2012 - 16:35
bless you - you made an amazing catwoman I was gutted I didnt get to see you on the masq but I was out the back waiting for my turn lol Excellent work!

Mighty Odango posted on 29 May, 2012 - 10:38
We judges were really impressed with her work on this, very much looking forward to her future costumes :)

SamanthaKaiba posted on 29 May, 2012 - 20:21
You look amazing and I love the photos ^_^

Starbucks dad posted on 31 May, 2012 - 21:49
Thank you, everyone! You're all far too kind.

Plasticsharkattack posted on 31 May, 2012 - 22:17
I absolutely love this - watched the masquerade video and felt so proud on her behalf. You guys should go to LFCC (7th July) she would fit right in, and then I can nab a photo with her as Pit!

Starbucks dad posted on 3 June, 2012 - 19:02
Thank you - that was kind. Yup, we'll be at LFCC - looking forward to catching up with you there.

Progress Journal

12th May 2012

Ahhh, and breathe...


7th May 2012


Got some cheap boots which we're going to modify.

22nd April 2012


Prototype done. Eleanor's old Baby Bjorn doll now has a fetching catwoman cowl...

12th April 2012


Ok, so big push today with lots of progress. All good until the goram zip broke...

Rude words may have been said.

10th March 2012

Slowly but surely?

Arms done, but a long way to go yet. Only 9 weeks to expo so we'll have to put a bit more time in..

3rd March 2012


So the bodice is now officially put together. We've sewn an arm and , er, don't know what to do with it next. But we'll get there. Probably.

12th February 2012

It's here

Leatherette's turned up as has a rather natty pair of glasses to convert. Quite excited by this one if we can make it, that is..

22nd January 2012


Finally got around to taking the measurements today. Just need to get some leatherette now..

22nd November 2011

Whip issues

To buy or to make?

(eep, and if bought, where from without it being embarassing)

20th November 2011

Well, it's progress....

Eleanor's dad: At a loose end so made the template for the charm at the end of the whip.
