Best Catwoman Costume Items:
You’re definitely going to need a catsuit to pull off a Catwoman costume. It’s the most iconic piece! The tight leather, body-hugging catsuit shows off your body and compliments all the right places. Depending on what fabric you get, this can actually be pretty comfortable. Choose something breathable and stretchy for ample movement, especially if you’ll be in a place where there’s lots of dancing.
If you live over on the west coast, October can be one of the hottest months of the year. It’s definitely not practical to be wearing a leather full-body suit. Try opting for a regular bodysuit. You’ll still get the sleek leather look, but you won’t become a sweaty mess.
3. Sheer Tights
Another great way to keep the look of the costume without overheating is by pairing a bodysuit with some sheer tights. This gives you a bit more coverage, is comfortable, and won’t have you sweating profusely! Most of us have tights in our wardrobe, so you probably can save money here!
All superheroes have disguises! Don’t forget yours, and make sure you wear this Catwoman mask. This is also something you can keep in your closet for future masquerades! I love to keep every costume piece I purchase because you never know when you might wear it again.
Catwoman doesn’t really have a tail; she has a whip! Make your costume more authentic by copying all the minor details such as this. A whip is, honestly, probably really fun to carry around. If you’re going out with your ladies, having a whip on you even adds some peace of mind!
6. Complete Costume
Instead of buying separate pieces to make one costume, you can purchase the entire Catwoman costume. This is the exact costume pictured at the top of the blog. Depending on how detailed you want to get with your costume, it may be more cost-effective to buy the pieces in a package like this!
7. Red Lipstick
Catwoman is usually depicted with a statement red lip! Remember, it’s really all about the details. The details are what make a good costume into a great costume. Red lips are fun and add a pop of color to contrast the dark black catsuit.
8. Dark Makeup
Don’t forget that gorgeous, blended, dark, smokey eye she wears. Under the mask, the dark eye makeup adds to the mystery of who Catwoman really is. Let’s be honest; doing Halloween makeup is one of the best parts of dressing up! If you’re like me, getting ready is more fun than going to the actual party.
9. Glitter Body Spray
Add a little twinkle to your costume with this glitter body spray! It’s a fun way to add a little sparkle and shine to the costume and is super cute. Glitter body spray is also just a nice accessory to have on you for festivals and concerts. I love a good purchase where I can use the item for other occasions!
10. Leather Boots
Gain some extra height with these super sexy and sleek over-the-knee boots. Catwoman is known for fighting crime in her gorgeous high boots. Women are incredible for being able to do everything in heels and doing it gracefully at that!
12. Black Booties
If you’re a short girl, then you know over-the-knee boots are most likely a no-go. Boots too high can make you look much shorter than you already are! A shorter-cut bootie still gives you some high while also showing off more of your leg, creating the illusion of height.

13. Sexy Catwoman Costume
If you’re going for a look that’s a little sexier, then you may want to look at this costume! It has all the pieces you need to be Catwoman and is super hot!
If you are going for a sexier look or not wearing the full catsuit, you could add fishnets! They definitely give off major Catwoman vibes, and they add some sexiness to the look. There’s never anything wrong with spicing up the costume to make it even hotter!
15. Full Headpiece
Maybe the mask look just doesn’t cut it for you. Try wearing the full leather headpiece. This is definitely one of those details that is going to make or break your Catwoman costume. Putting a little extra money into getting a headpiece that looks authentic is the way to go!
