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. :)

I know you can't see this, but my jaw just hit the floor.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have a call to the hospital to make.

YOU should be the next Catwoman! You are by FAR the most attractive one to date, and you aren't even in the movies! That's how epic you are.

Wow, gorgeous! Facially, you have like such an uncanny resemblance to the Arkham City Catwoman, it makes the whole package just so much more authentic looking.

At first I thought it was you were an action figure of her when I saw the thumbnail. I was amazed that it was a person. This is just amazing you pulled off the look perfectly. The poses are perfectly matched with what Catwoman would pose like.

Mind if I share this with my best friend? She is playing the Arkham City game and she loves playing Catwoman.
