Character: Catwoman from Arkham City (video game)
Costume made by: Yaya
Model: Yaya
Photography: Brian Boling
Tumbler: The Dark Knight screen-used car, thank you, WB, for letting me pose with it.
Location: San Diego Comic Con 2012

This is a preview shot for the new Catwoman costume I completed in time for SDCC. Forgive the crowd in the background, I took the chance to pose with the Tumbler when permission was granted!!
When I post closer-up photos of the costume, I will share the construction process in detail. For now, just know this costume was made in 50 hours, but only takes 5 minutes to put on lol. To match the hexagon fabric in the video game, I had the pattern designed by my friend Jinyo and printed up at Fabric On Demand. The secondary fabric is a rubber coated spandex.
Cathy of :icongstqfashions: saved me hours of work by graciously letting me base my bodysuit off of the pattern she had made already for this same costume for a customer. I had to redesign most pieces of the pattern to fit my bodyshape and height, but it was nice to not have to make a full mock-up from scratch, and with my tight work schedule, I appreciated every second of time saved.
I sewed the costume entirely myself, as usual, making sure to triple-stitch the seams (100+ of them) and also top stitch all of them. I also made the matching accessories such as gloves/hood/ears/sculpted metal bits/altered boots etc.
I re-used the goggles from my other Catwoman costume because I kind of hate the design of the Arkham City goggles, and I already made perfectly usable Catwoman goggles before. :)

More photos and write-up coming soon, also look out for my Journal entry Recap of SDCC!

Fantastic!  Looks like a scene for a Batman movie where she's about to take the batmobile for a joyride.
