Catwoman Halloween Costumes
Catwoman’s history starts in 1940. Batman had already been established as a popular comic book character and the writers, Bill Finger and Bob Kane, wanted to add an exciting female character to the stories. She started as a clever jewel thief who evaded Batman and Robin’s keen detective skills. She quickly becomes one of the biggest female superheroes that DC has on their roster. She’s smart, she’s a bit mischievous, and she’s one of the few people who can go toe to toe with Batman when the chips are down. Of course, we also love the fact that you never know who’s side she’s on! One story she might be masterfully slipping away from the police and the next, she’ll be teaming up with Batman to take down The Joker. It’s all part of what makes her such an amazing character. And if you want to transform into her, then you’re going to want one of our Catwoman costumes to enhance your experience.

Catwoman's Dark Knight Rises Costume
Christopher Nolan’s take on Batman swept the silver screen back in 2005. Wow, has it really been that long? (We’re starting to feel old.) Anyways, the films introduced us to new versions of classic characters. In the first movie, we got to see a brilliant Cillian Murphy become the Scarecrow. In The Dark Knight we got a perfect rendition of The Joker with Heath Ledger. Then, in the final installment of the series, we got to see Anne Hathaway become the ambivalent Selina Kyle. If you want to transform into the cunning thief-turned-hero, then you’ll need a Catwoman Dark Knight Rises costume. We have plenty of options inspired by Anne’s portrayal of the character.
Original Catwoman Costume
Catwoman has a simple outfit, which keeps a lot of things the same, despite all the redesigns through the years. She always wears a sleek catsuit, which is perfect for sneaking past guards and slipping past the competition. The classic version of this comes from the 1960s, Adam West led Batman series. Her costume included the black catsuit, but also incorporated some gold accents and jewelry, perhaps trophies from her latest caper!

Batman and Catwoman Costumes
The history between Batman and Catwoman is long and storied! Batman has always been a somewhat strait-laced hero, always trying to take the moral path and only engaging in his vigilante lifestyle to better the streets of Gotham City. Selina Kyle, on the other hand, doesn’t like to play by the rules. She’s constantly navigating a moral grey area, which makes for an extremely interesting relationship full of twists and turns. In later stories of the pair, Batman even proposed to her. Of course, nothing is ever that easy! A few wild events put their wedding on hold and their relationship is still in a constant state of flux. If you want to become a true superhero couple powerhouse, then we don’t think there’s any better option! Just head over to our Batman section and pick out the costume that best suits your significant other and you can head to the next party in a Batman and Catwoman couple’s costume!
Catwoman doesn’t have any superpowers, just like Batman. That means she needs to rely on her wits, and some nifty gadgets, to keep pace with the other heroes and villains in the DC universe. She might not have access to the limitless budget that Bruce Wayne has, but she makes the best of what she does have! If you want to have an authentic Catwoman outfit, then you’re going to need a few of our Catwoman accessories to put the finishing touches.
Catwoman is quite well-versed with hand-to-hand combat. She can keep pace with Batman in a scuffle without even breaking a sweat. But when she has to kick it up a notch, she has a special little tool in her arsenal. That’s when she breaks out the whip! Yes, Catwoman and Indiana Jones both have an affinity for the coiling tool, since it can be used in combat and it also helps them swing away from danger in style. The great thing about carrying a toy whip with your Catwoman costume is that they pack up nicely and can be easily carried with any costume. That can’t be said about some of the tools that Batman carries! He needs a whole utility belt to carry his gadgets around.
Batman might know the secret identity of Catwoman, but most of Gotham City doesn’t have a clue who she is. It’s amazing how effective a simple mask can be! Yes, Selina owes it all to her face mask. During her various stories, she’s swapped it out for different visions depending on her latest mission. Sometimes, she wears a pair of cat-eye goggles that give her night vision, and other times, she wears just an eye mask to help conceal her identity. Which way you go is totally up to you!
