This is my favorite setting from the Catwoman photoshoot I did with Bryan Humphrey! After shooting outside for a couple of hours we moved to inside this decrepit warehouse space. I have no clue how Bryan lit this space but it really looks like a comic book to me.
Also, full-body shot of the costume! Wish my boot straps weren't slipping down :(

Character: Catwoman from Arkham City (video game)
Costume made by: Yaya
Model: Yaya
Photography: Bryan Humphrey

How I made this:
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. :)

Calm down no one was critiquing her as a person, its the composition of the look captured in the photo.

Flawless is what you say about something that has no flaws, everyone, and every cosplay has flaws. Yaya worked very hard on this costume obviously, and has very amazing skill, she is in shape and she is blessed with very lovely endowments; however, that's not the point here, the point is the concept of Cat Woman. What was mentioned about her body is that it does not fit the attitude or the commonly accepted image of Cat Woman. There is nothing wrong with Yaya's Body or her costume, the picture to some of us, does not describe the idea of the Character. It is a fan opinion. Its about conveying the character, i.e. cosplay (Costume Play), you are playing the character oppose to just wearing clothes which is modeling which exists. This is all well and good here, but I still agree with the commenter I replied to, the picture on the left shows a more Cat Woman like stance, attitude, and body image. The one on the right is more rigid and top heavy. That has NOTHING, I repeat NOTHING to do with her costume or her body. It has to do with the composition of the photo, and the pose. HOWEVER, in connection with your comment, the left one shows her PERSONAL WORK in better detail, which is the costume you are so worried about being overlooked. For fellow cosplayers, seamstresses, and fashion designers it gives a greater impression of her detail and work. I'm not here to keep this going, I would just be pleased if you would understand its about the character shes cosplaying and not her herself, or her work. -Thank you

Hm, I thought the opposite, since all they 'critiqued' was her body and not her actual work. The quality and artistry of the costume is flawless, as is the woman wearing it.
