Superhero fancy dress costumes are always popular, especially the male characters like Spiderman, Batman and Superman costumes, but what about woman superheroes (or should that be superheroines?)
Today I am going to look at the Catwoman Costume, Catwoman first appeared in 1940 in a Batman comic and was initially known as The Cat.
The Catwoman costume has evolved over the years, in fact in her first appearance Catwoman wore no costume or disguise at all this then evolved with the character and Catwoman began to wear a cat-mask which had the appearance of a real cat .
In the 1990s, the Catwoman costume consisted of a skin tight purple bodysuit and then changed to a black PVC costume like the Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman costume in Batman Returns.
Most of the current Catwoman costumes for sale have a much more hi-tech look and usually include a stylized cat mask, jumpsuit, belt and boot tops.
Catwoman and the well known male superhero Batman, have tended to have a love and hate relationship over the years. Initially Catwoman spent her early years helping out Batman fighting crime, but later returns to her life of crime and moves on to become a true Batman villain. It is also interesting to note Batman's most enduring love interests, is Catwoman and has occasionally been depicted as his one true love. So an excellent idea for some couples costumes would be to dress up in Catwoman and Batman costumes.
