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.

Ive been wanting the Grey tights and yellow utility belt too! Hopefully in another 10 years when someone reboots the movie series again. Maybe with a legit robin. Btw, great redesign!

I'm really liking the design you've given Cat-woman here. The cloak and whip sort of makes her look like a sort of ring master. Which isn't a bad thing. Nice work.

Looks like someone has been thinking about Audrey Hepburn.
