Ame Comi Catwoman II by Dessi-Desu Ame Comi Catwoman II by Dessi-Desu
Character: Catwoman (Ame Comi)
Series: Batman
Photo taken by Ljinto at Katsucon 2011
Costume and make up: Made and done by me

Haha, this costume is soooooooooooo out of character for me, but I had a lot of fun wearing it. My friend has been wanting to do a Batman cosplay for quite a while. Normally, I would have picked Ivy for myself (I love red hair :3), but my friend was going to cosplay her originally, but ended up cosplaying Zatanna in the end.

I picked the Ame Comi costume because I found it to be cute and playful, and I'm not very good at playing the tough girl role. Plus, she has green eyes and long limbs like me in the figurine : ]

I made the costume out of a metallic black spandex, which is relatively easy to sew. I recommend it to any cosplayers that want a shiny look, but are afraid to take on the task of sewing vinyl. I love metallic spandex and even used it on my top for my Velvet cosplay.

There are buckles and zippers galore on this costume. My least favorite part by far was taking on the task of the boot slip covers. Installing zippers to go -AROUND- my legs was extremely annoying, but I got it done ^^

I also played around a little bit with resin casting on this costume. I casted the cat ears for the hat. I meant to cast the claws, but I ran out of time, so I just made some quick ones out of sculpy.

I have a few things I want to fix on this costume, before wearing it again, but for the most part I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

I'm so jealous of your boots! I took the cowards way out on my Ame Comi Catwoman costume and just did a silver strip that wrapped around the boot! You look fabulous! *approve!*

Thanks! All the pieces for this costume were made by me. I just used a glove sewing pattern that I altered a bit and sculpted some claws to put inside the finger holes that I left on the fingertips of the gloves.

Btw, did use 4-way stretch or 2-way stretch spandex?

I'm SUPER late. Sorry about that! I used 4-way stretch. Some people use 2-way, but I've heard a lot of complaints about it being more difficult to work with.

This is amazing! I've been thinking of making this costume and I love yours! Any tips for conquering those crazy zippers on the boots?
