Okay, I need a little help. I've got a bunch of folks getting together to do a DC-theme at a Summer con, so I decided to be Catwoman to go along with them. (: I just need some opinions on what I should use, fabric and the like, since this will be my first time doing anything quite so form-fitting.

This (http://www.sewthankful.com/kwiksew3052.html) is the only pattern I've found so far that looks like it could be used. If I use View A, and put an invisible zipper in the back instead of a decorative one in the front I think it'd be easily made into her catsuit. But if anyone who's done Catwoman before - or someone similar - has a better pattern I'm all for it.

I was thinking about either Spandex (http://spandexworld.com/c3/catalog/product/4279) - which I've never worked with before - or Cotton Lycra (http://spandexworld.com/c3/catalog/product/6557), which I have worked with before for the initial body suit and cowl. But I can't decide which. Both seem nice and I love both of the colors. I'm leaning towards the Lycra mix because of the fact I've worked with it before.

I don't have any ideas on the hair though. I'll have to use a wig, that's for certain, but I'm not sure what kind, since her hair is rather thick, but will need to be kept under the cowl. Perhaps a Ferrari (http://arda-wigs.com/Ferrari.html) from Arda, but then comes the question of what color.

I think I can probably find a whip somewhere for a good price, or at least a faux one, but if anyone has any ideas on that they'd be appreciated too. xD

Thanks! <3
