My Julie Newmar Catwoman mannequin

Post by danbar »

Well, my Terrific Trio finally have an adversary! Catwoman is complete (although I will probably continue tweaking).
The wonderful costume was made by our own Catgreg. I chose this particular mannequin because I thought it really evoked Julie Newmar as Catwoman (there is a publicity shot of her in this basic pose and it is very similar to the Moebius model pose). It was nearly impossible to dress the mannequin while in this pose however, but I am thankful that if finally worked.
I repainted the mannequin and purchased an appropriate wig for it. I made the wip. I found the purrfect cat sculpture prop, painted it and dressed it in the appropriate jewels. I even have her blue loot bag similar to the one in The Purr-fect Crime / Better Luck Next Time.
The mannequin came with a little plastic pillar to support her left leg. I was trying to think of how I could cover it, or what else I could use. My son (who is learning-disabled) suggested that I use the cat scratching post, which I thought was quite clever.
Hope you all like it!
