a cat woman
So with all the hubbub with the Dark Knight Rises redesign, I just figured I take my own stab at her, because for the most part, I’ve never really thought about her costume much before. And as I was mulling it over, as much as I like the Darwyn Cooke design, the old Julie Newmar version really struck me as fitting her character a lot more. Granted, I think of her much more lighthearted than a disgruntled former prostitute. I personally like the character better as an overly playful fashionable femme fatale, so i took a far more flashy stance to the costume than a realistic one. I find that the realistic believable approach only goes so far, because, come on, this is superheroes. They shouldn’t have to make complete 100% sense. They need an element of spectacle and iconography. I’m still waiting for the Batman movie with grey cotton tights.
