Thanks to Kevin Green for these shots taken at Wondercon 2011

Costume made and modeled by me

This costume is based on the Adam Hughes :iconadamhughes: covers for the Catwoman comics.

Selina is such a iconic character and he captured her so well that I wanted to pay tribute.

I started with a base black latex suit and made the gloves with the claws, hood with the catears, and goggles. I tried to find as accurate as boots as I could, and ordered a leather whip as well.

In the future I definitely would like to do a rooftop shoot with this costume, gosh the possibilities are near endless!

EDIT: Thank you so much for the Daily Deviation! I was so surprised when I woke up to find this. I also really appreciate all the nice comments and feedback. One thing about getting a DD is that inadvertently it comes with criticism as well. Overall I welcome criticism and constantly strive to improve on my costumes. And honestly most of you are saying far too nice things, thank you. But what I don't like is when people make assumptions about me and my work without taking the time to read the description, or research my portfolio at least a little bit. This is the first photo I've posted of this Catwoman costume, which was taken against a wall at a con and is meant to show off the costume. Nothing more. More photos of a variety are coming soon.
I think people sometimes forget that we are real human beings sweating inside these outfits, and there are outside conditions that impact the images we produce. Planning for an uninterrupted photo session is difficult and requires time, effort and sometimes money. We do our best to get some good shots at a convention when we're already dressed up, but the constant bombardment of attendees wanting photos of you, with you, with their kids, with their friends etc. can make doing a serious photoshoot difficult. I enjoy meeting people and taking photos with them, so I sometimes sacrifice a private photoshoot for socializing with the attendees.

All I'm trying to say it - have some common sense and think before you speak. I never go on DA to criticize anyone because I believe there are factors involved in producing each Deviation that are not known to me.

I think quite honestly, this is my favorite cosplay of yours. You just look like her SO much already, and the costume is AMAZING, and I think you quite honestly have her character down. :) Good work!

i mean, seriously, hollywood movies with million dollars of budget can't do this? This is wayyyyyy better than ANY of those Catwoman outfits in tv or in the movies, and that includes Nolan's TDKR. this is just beautiful yaya. Great job!

Yaknow, if you used a rougher leather and a more patchwork pattern, you'd make a spot-on Arkham City Catwoman cosplay: [link]

This looks so great! Excellent job! I am also trying to make an Adam Hughes Catwoman costume to wear to cons and I was just wondering how you made your goggles because they look great! I have been having a horrible time trying to find similar goggles and I have never attempted to make any before so I was wondering if you could tell me how it was done. Thanks, and you look great!

AWESOME!!! It looks like a toy almost! Great costume, and you're f'n HOT! After seeing this, it seems like it should have been obvious that Catwoman would have sounded like an Asian lady from the beginning, the feline eyes are perfect! And any argument against the red eye's(the instant though) is clawed to death by the realization that they give the sentiment of a scarier, mythic cat to opponents. Also the similarity to a ruby if that's relevant?

Jessica-Ink Featured By Owner May 3, 2011
this cosplay is stunning and as you said the conditions that come with cons are not ideal and i should imagine people were so stunned with your cosplay that you were probably bombarded for photos all day so by the time you got to do your own thing and organise your own photo's you probably didn't even feel your best but you still did your best and it looks stunning. I'd love to look even half this good in a cosplay one day so ignore the negative comments because sometimes people don't understand the hard work that goes in to these things.

Yaya, I just want to say I've been following your works since I was probably a young teenaged girl, and always looked up to you.
Your depiction is pretty amazing, since I am no costumer I'm not sure where to being to look for flaws but I do admire this and the rest of your work :)

As to your edit about the response on criticism, I feel that is a very mature view to look at that and unfortunately fans and non-fans alike sometimes get a bit overcritical of things completely disregarding that the fact that this person too, is a human and has feelings just like what makes so passionate to be so overly critical and perhaps even rude.

It is okay to be critical, however there is absolutely no need to be rude about it and it's definitely better if it's constructive :)
