About this Costume
Construction Details:
Anyway WOW was this costume ever an undertaking!! You can't tell here (you'll be able to in other pictures!) but my cape is 12 yards of fabric!!! It has 5 points and 4 arches, and drags on the ground slightly, since I wanted to stay as close to the New design as possible! My mask is Leather, made by ravenwood masks borrowed from my darling Cassi! my gloves are pleather on the top and spandex on the bottom, which I sewed seams into to look more like her gloves. My belt/pouches are all made out of pleather as are the base of my gauntlets, while the belt buckle and blades on my arms are made from styrene. My boots started out black and I painted them with leather paint, my leggings and top I made myself. This is definitely one of the hardest costumes I've made in a while, I'm super generally pretty happy with how it turned out considering it was my first time doing something like this. I'd like to remake the gloves in the future but besides that everything worked out really well!!
Personal Thoughts:
I really adore Kate. She's a strong, flawed individual who looks like a spooky fucking ghost and is just terrifying. I adore how she isn't a tiny little girl like the batgirls, she's a big scary woman who wakes up in the morning and pumps iron, SHIT SHE WILL DESTROY YOU.

Every time I was having trouble with this costume my Flamebird would just text or tweet or yell SOLDIER ON at me as I sobbed into yards upon yard of unwieldy fabric
