Day 10 of #31DIYsTilHalloween was my Catwoman cosplay!

I’ve been working on this one for months! I am THRILLED with how she turned out and I am so so so excited for my photoshoot for her next week. You might even be able to catch me as Catwoman at @thebourbonroom’s upcoming DCvsMarvel Halloween party! 😉😉😉

This cosplay took forever to find out but ended up costing me next to nothing. I found a catsuit on Ebay for under $20 (look around at reviews and make sure you’re paying attention to sizing info because they sometimes come in Asian sizing which is much smaller!) and the boots were my birthday present to myself a few weeks ago so I already had them in my closet. You can really wear any sexy stiletto heel boot. If you don’t feel like hunting for the perfect catsuit or you just don’t want to wear one, you can also wear plain or wet-look/leather leggings and a tight plain long sleeve black top or fitted leather jacket for the same catsuit effect!
My corset is from Isabella.

I found the mask at a costume shop for $6 and the goggle were $1.75 on eBay from China - keep in mind they take a month or more to ship! I ordered them back in August.

I’ve been out of the corset scene for a while now, but I’m going to get back in it now that I have this beautiful baby! It’s a size 32 hourglass from timeless trends. My natural waist is 39-40 inches. The curves on this thing give me life. I especially love that the back is slightly curved so the bottom doesn’t cut into me.

Really enjoyed this video, showing all the hard work that goes into constructing a beautiful corset, by Amber of Lovely Rat’s Corsetry.

I can’t believe it took me four months to figure out that my butterscotch spot broche corset looks best when worn over deep purple. Even the binding is lavender — it should have been obvious!
