Catwoman Halloween Costume Ideas

For a lot of women, Halloween is about finally letting go and showing off the body they were able to attain during their summer workouts. It's the one night per year where it's socially acceptable to wear skin-tight leather and cat ears in public. If you're a fan of Catwoman, you might as well take advantage of this opportunity. A Catwoman costume can take many different forms, but there are a few basic elements that you must pay proper homage to:

The Cat Ears And Mask

Lately, cat ears have been associated more with the anime-loving crowd, but unusual supervillain concepts like these have always been a staple of the DC universe. How the mask and ears will look depends on what version of Catwoman you would like to embody. Are you going for an ironic look? Try Catwoman from the Batman TV series. Want to give Halle Berry some respect? Were you the only one who liked the 2004 iteration of Catwoman? Go for the movie version.

Bodysuit

Most versions of Catwoman require a bodysuit. You can go the expensive or cheap route here. If you don't want to spend a lot of money, consider getting a black, skin-tight entail suit without a hood. If you want something fancier, then consider some specialized leather or "pleather" outfits; just remember that these may be squeakier than you realize when you're walking around.

Whip

Catwoman's primary means of attack are her whip and sharp claws. Her entire getup—from her leather bodysuit to her weapons of choice—are reminiscent of BDSM, so you should actually have no problem procuring at least a quality whip from a "couples" store. For cheaper (and less dangerous) options, party stores often have fake whips.

Are you purring in anticipation for next Halloween? Ready to bring the claws out and show everyone what a bad kitten you are? Consider a Catwoman costume this season.
