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]
