This is the Michelle Pfeiffer Catwoman Costume I created. And although the process was lengthy and a bit annoying, it was still pretty enjoyable in the end because Selena Kyle makes her catwoman costume herself in the Batman Returns movie which made me even more like her which was pretty cool and I got a ton of compliments!
The things I bought: Pair of high heel black boots, white out, black "liquid" "leather look" leggings, black electrical tape, white makeup, red lipstick, black garbage bags, and rubber gloves.
Suit: Basically I put on the leggings, boots, then wrapped myself tightly with a garbage bag. Then taped it around tight to shape it right.
Stitches: Drew/Painted them on the black tape wrapped around in the same patterns Selena does in the film. *TIP* to not ruin your leggings, make sure to draw the stitches on black tape and put that over the leggings like I did.
Gloves: Wrap the rubber gloves in black tape. Then cut out long fingernail shapes from a sturdy paper colored silver (pencil), and secure those on with tape.
Headpiece: This was the most tricky to get the right shape and whatnot. Started out with garbage bag to shape on my head and cut it out to look like hers, then i wrapped the whole thing in black tape to make it sturdy. Then for the ears it was just layered black tape.
Face: White face paint from a Halloween kit, then to make it stay on used a super light powder. Hot red lipstick with lipliner, And then dark blue & black heavy eyeshadow and mascara.
This Catwoman Costume took me ages to make! All in all I think it took me a few months to draw up, take screen dump pictures from the Batman Returns film and catch every angle to make sure I had the stitching in the exact same place. Talk about a geek! Or just serious perving on catwoman!!
The bones corset took me the longest to get right and make the lace up part at the back touch enough to be pulled in tight! I have always loved Batman and especially Catwoman. I made this costume for my boyfriend as a surprise. He was very surprised and amused when I started the whole Catwoman scene in my home haha. I can even crack the whip!
I love it love it love it! It's so warm inside all that PVC. Not one for wearing out clubbing! So I will probably just keep it for dress up in the house. Sexy costume, nearly one of my favourites I have made.
This is very tight and I had to keep fixing it to make it tighter in certain parts to get the desired result. I used PVC, black vinyl, rubber and white wool to make this. Boots were bought and so was the whip! But the rest is all me!
I am Catwoman - hear me roar! rrrrrrraaaaar I am Catwoman - hear me roar!
I am a cat lover so I had to have a Catwoman Costume for Halloween at least once in my life. There are many variations of Catwoman's costume. Michelle Pfeiffer's makeup and Halle Berry's costume inspired me the most to create my own version.
I already had black liquid leggings, black boots, a black bra, and black belts at home. I did not want to cut up my leggings (because I still regularly wear them) so I left out the tears that were on Halle's costume. The mask I bought and cut the eye holes bigger. The gloves I also bought and painted the nails silver with silver nail polish. I used black eye shadow and black eye liner on my eyes and red lipstick on my lips. Catwoman also uses a variety of weapons so I chose the cat-o-nine-tails, which I also bought.
The costume was cheap to make, and I had a blast being Catwoman for a night.
My husband was given a Batman costume this year and I wanted to be something that went with that, so therefore I came up with a Homemade Catwoman Halloween Costume!
I bought this pair of leggings from Wal-mart that looked like leather but weren't, they were just polyester ones, for only $10. Then I went to a bargain store and bought a black spandex leotard for $5., a pair of black gloves and ears and a mask at Party City. And I already owned a pair of black boots.
I just put on the leggings and the leotard over and then the boots, and gloves and mask and I also added a gold belt that I had and was done.
Michelle Pfeiffer may have had more fun playing Catwoman in the 1992 productions of Batman Returns. But, I made Catwoman a piece of ART! I spent 2 days of with lots of spandex and white twine to pull this off. I used thin cardboard to make the structure for the mask. This is one solid piece that I had to sew myself into to get the full effect!
