Information

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)

Is it TOO hot! seriously! I will be a puddle of latex by the end of the expo.

Ranma1-2 posted on 10 October, 2009 - 12:56
Don't forget to bring your bottle of latex shine, for ultimate gloss on the day. ;)

FairyPorchQueen posted on 10 October, 2009 - 19:27

Ranma1-2 posted on 26 October, 2009 - 15:14
*jaw drops* Oh. My. Gosh! That looks Awesome!. This is the best Catwoman I have seen. Excellent costume. The makeup and camera poses also look just like her. GUTTED that I missed seeing this on the day. @_@

FairyPorchQueen posted on 26 October, 2009 - 15:26
Oh wow thank you what a compliment! >__<

Amy-Lou posted on 26 October, 2009 - 15:36
You looked amazing, like you'd just stepped out of the film :) The effort you put in really shows.

Ranma1-2 posted on 26 October, 2009 - 15:37
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 (!!)

Wildeth posted on 26 October, 2009 - 15:37
I saw you loads at the Expo lol xD You're an AMAZING Catwoman, kudos to you!

FairyPorchQueen posted on 26 October, 2009 - 15:58
@ Ranma - totally ^__^ i hated my boots they were so awful and pointy,at the time i couldnt find any that werent you will have to link me hehe ^__^ and yuuus loooots of money, but if i redo the corset and find a perfect one ill be on my way to being 100% acurate, apart from the stiching on the bum, which i cant do >__< stupid zip! @ Wildeth & Amy-lou- thank you sooooo much >__< hehe

ElegantAura posted on 26 October, 2009 - 16:31
This is insanely amazing, it's looks outstanding in photos and in person! This is definately one of my faves of your cosplays ^_^

Zaiburst posted on 26 October, 2009 - 21:02
wow, y'know, I think I saw you in this, but somehow presumed you were one of the hired pros. I hope you cos this again someday :)

agi posted on 27 October, 2009 - 00:21
Can't believe i didn't see you in this! It is totally amazing! ps lovely to meet you on saturday :)

FairyPorchQueen posted on 27 October, 2009 - 00:44
WOW thanks for the lovely comments everyone!

Ranma1-2 posted on 27 October, 2009 - 00:46
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. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Super-Sexy-Knee-High-Lace-Up-Stiletto-Boots-UK-4-5-6-7_W0QQitemZ140345192663QQcmdZViewItemQQptZWomen_s_Shoes?hash=item20ad39b0d7 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.

you simply rocked this costume! If you ever want to get a screen perfect corset with boning in same placing as hers was, i know a corsetier who will make one. She made one for me when i was going to do the costume...but never got round to it.
