Batman of Shanghai: The Prowl by MangoSirene Batman of Shanghai: The Prowl by MangoSirene
I've always wanted to cosplay Catwoman, but after making so many body suits last year, I really had no desire to make another one! So when DC Nation aired the "Batman of Shanghai" shorts, I instantly fell in love with Catwoman's design and knew I had to make it!

This costume taught me a lot for how simple it looked. This is the first time I've made a helmet from scratch, and I also learned how to do applique embroidery (which I'd managed to avoid doing for so many other projects - there was no escaping it this time). The qipao was also a structural nightmare but it all came together in time for Katsucon!

I wore this for Ackson's first Katsucon cosplay video, which you can watch here: [link]

hello your cosplay is great.
I want to make this costume, but do not know what fabric to use for the qipao.
Do you would you recommend any?

I'm from Argentina

Hey there! I actually used a bridal brocade for the qipao, it was nice to work with other than how much it liked to fray! But that would be my recommendation!

Thanks for your support~ As Shanghai Batman is authorized by Warner Bros.,we have no idea if there is any plan of full-length film. We are doing some original works now. Hope you would like them:]

This is absolutely gorgeous!
I adore the effort you put into your costumes, and they always end up great.
This costume looks exceptionally gorgeous, especially the helmet.
Once again, you've completely outdone yourself, and are my absolute favorite cosplayer of all time. (:

How did youmake the helmet? I wanna make Aya's helmet from Green Lantern but I have no clue where to start.

The base of my helmet is Fast Mache. I then covered it with walljoint compound, which was sanded and sealed with Mod Podge. I spray-painted it, and then gave it a gloss varnish. The red trim was purchased from JoAnn’s and attached with LockTite super glue. The lenses are made from a thin sheet of PVC. :)
