I never understood why all the new catwoman costumes looked like this. Why would catwoman scratch HERSELF? You have an easy, nice-looking costume, but I'm a traditionalist.

But PLEASE, if you are going to do it, have the body for it! If you look like Rosie O'Donnel, PLEASE do not wear this outfit...

Consider wearing this instead:

It wouldn't be that hard to make it like it was in the movie. Just use some heavy white thread to sew it together kind of haphazard.

Thank you sooooo much!!!! Everyone loved the costume... and the mask! as a cheaper substitute for leather pants you could use leggings! One thing you forgot to make was the whip!.. How I did it was I got an old suede skirt from sally anne's and electrical tape from the dollarstore. I wrapped a long strip of leather with the tape for the whip portion, and then I wrapped leather around a highlighter for the handle. For added affect i slashed the handle so some of the tape could be seen through. My costume would have been equally impressive if I ditched the catwoman stuff and called myself 'whip holder'

I can think of many uses besides Halloween.

Very cute costume. Vissy, I could be wrong, but didn't the movie version of Catwoman's outfit get cut up from falling and fighting? I think that is the idea behind it. She isn't "scratching herself." :)

 Buenísimo! Me diste una GRAN orientación para hacer una mascara de super héroe (para un cortometraje independiente), la verdad que me estaba re-enroscando y veo que es bastante simple si se le pone paciencia y ganas jeje.

GRACIAS desde ARGENTINA

the mask looks totally diff when she wears it..

Yeah I noticed that too, which is a shame since the finished one looks really good and is probably the trickiest part of the costume. It would be nice if they posted a brief run through on the making of this other mask since I have not yet found a pattern for one like it online.

Use the width of a regular pair of pants as a measurement  and then use stretchy fabric to make the hat. The eyes come out a lot bigger because the hole stretches open. The most important thing is to make sure they are centered and that the nose area is not too wide...

I tried making the mask.. it actually works! I made a cone with cardboard and stuffed it with tissue.. yay.. she saved my halloween

ficklefame (author)zazuu2008-10-19

Riann13 (author)2009-12-30

hey neat =)

what kind of materials are used? (what type of fabric is the pants used for mask made of?)

author
lironess (author)Riann132010-01-18

It is a stretch fabric....I think lycra would work just fine. The pants had kind of wide legs too....

Kudos on the wordless Instructable. Great costume.

Robotrix (author)2008-10-21

i just wonder why catwoman would have let her costume be ruined presumably by cats. She controls them, right? Is it too much to ask them not to scratch up her one good costume?

author
Nextraker (author)2008-10-10

Awesome, I love this kitty outfit. Good luck with the contest
