Catwoman – Batman Makeup Inspiration


Catwoman is a fictional character associated with DC Comics’ Batman franchise. Historically a super villain, the character was created by Bill Finger and Bob Kane, partially inspired by Kane’s cousin, Ruth Steel. Kane, a frequent movie goer, also mentioned that Jean Harlow was a model for the design.

The original and most widely known Catwoman, Selina Kyle, first appears in Batman #1 (Spring 1940) in which she is known as The Cat. She is a sometimes-adversary of Batman, known for having a complex love-hate (often romantic) relationship with him. In her first appearance, she was a whip-carrying burglar with a taste for high-stake thefts. For many years Catwoman thrived, but from September 1954 to November 1966 she took an extended hiatus due to the newly developing Comics Code Authority in 1954. These issues involved the rules regarding the development and portrayal of female characters that were in violation with the Comic Code.

Since the 1990s, Catwoman has been featured in an eponymous series that cast her as an antihero rather than a super villain. The character has been one of Batman’s most enduring love interests. Many modern writers have also interpreted her activities and costumed identity as a response to a history of abuse.

The Catwoman I was inspired is Michelle Pfeiffer by Tim Burton in Batman Forever. Once again this characters were amazing in the Batman movie.

The mask was custom made I just grab an old black shirt cut it and sew with black thread. The white thread is just white eye liner. The makeup was an easy regular black smokey eye the secret was using white soft foundation in my face to make it pale as Ms. Pfeiffer.

So for you Batman fans here is my creativity at work. Thanks for watching!
