[b]Step 1:[/b] In this step you are going to turn the body suit into a cat costume. Catwoman is a cat so we will need a tail. The [url=http://costumzee.wpengine.com/tag/ca+tail/]tail[/url] can be relatively short and thinly stuffed. The body suit should be comfortable and easy to get out of. It is up to you whether you want to go for leather or cotton as there are both to be had in the stores.

[b]Step 2:[/b] The mask will need to be created. The mask should conform to your head with cat ears at the top. The mask typically covers to the cheekbones from the nose leaving the mouth and chin exposed.

[b]Step 3:[/b] The accessories will be just as important as the rest of the costume. Catwoman wore high heeled leather boots, but any black boots you can find will do. The whip is an optional accessory and your weapon. Some comics show her with the whip while others don’t. Lastly the nails, these are an additional weapon. You can choose whether you want blood red or black. Again both styles have been used in movies and comics.

Catwoman is lithe and sneaky. She has a rather devious nature. To make the costume complete you might want to study a cat’s movements for a while to move stealth like and get your purr down. These just make the costume more real now that you have completed it.
