Here is the pretty amazing Bombshell Batwoman statue by Ant Lucia and Tim Miller. I do love this Character from the DC Comics Bombshells series. This version is Kate Kane, a lesbian, baseball playing protector of the home front during World War 2 . Sorry to not have the photo credit for this collage, it was a huge help in making my design!
A lot of this costume ended up having to be store bought. The socks, gloves, and cleats were each around 7$, and the hat was 3$. I shortened the gloves and added cording to the wrists. I painted the cleats black and added red bat emblems on the back. The hat just needed some ears and vinyl emblem added. I pieced together the dress and made the belt myself…I am lucky enough to own a silhouette vinyl cutting machine, so I printed out the bat for the font of the top and the team/number for the back onto heat transfer vinyl. Last step was to add red accent trim around the sleeves and collar. Oh, and the bat! We inherited an old wooden bat when we bought our house, so I regripped the handle then added the little end bat and Batwoman wordage to the side. A little black makeup for the mask and a red wig, and it is done!!
I hope to get some field shots soon, but for now… here are some pics from SC Comic Con taken by my 11 year old. This is going to be my comfy-est go-to costume for a while, I think!
I will probably end up making a new, more screen accurate version of this once I get the hang of some new materials. This is my first attempt made in the summer of 2015 based on the preview shot of her costume. I have worn it several times now, and love that it is so comfortable (for a corset and heels.)
It is made of faux leather, craft foam and modge podge mostly. The leg armor is one piece attached to knee highs and worn over wedge heels. The corset is steel boned with a separate skirt/belt. The sword is just a plastic one I repainted and weathered attached to a leather strap. My hair is brown, just brown and doesn’t take color well, so I have given up on trying to dye it black. I don’t really mind… it is more me as Wonder Woman, which I love 🙂
The above photos were from SC Comicon in Greenville April 2016.
Below is a shot of the costume when I first made it..(on my mannequin and showing the sword.) Since then, the skirt has been shortened a bit, but all else the same.
This is one of my favorite shots, taken by my six year old. It shows my other daughter (11) in a rare picture as my professional corset lacer 🙂 The older one is normally my photographer and does an outstanding job!
