Meow: Review of Gotham CIty Sirens Comic/DIY Catwoman Costume

Hey guys!

October is next week! We know what that means: Halloween! For a comic book/sci-fi fanatic like myself, it means countdown to NYC Comic Con. The convention is on October 11-14, 2012 at the Javits Center It is the largest event in the East Coast that caters to comic books and sci-fi. 

Last year's Comic Con, I was introduced to the series called Gotham City Sirens.  The main characters are Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn. 

Issue #1
In the first few issues, the ladies decided to live together and join forces.  I found this to be awesome since one of my favorite episodes in Batman: The Animated Series involved Poison Ivy getting Harley away from Joker, becoming best buds, and proving the women could do a better job as villains.   

Throwback from Batman The Animated Series
I don't want to give a lot away, but the series was definitely ahead of its time.  DC Comics who owns the series, should have given it another year before canceling it last year. A lot of women are into comic books and a few that I spoke to didn't know it existed till it was canceled, what a shame. Such a great read!

The Artwork by J. G. Jones is a sight to see, it would be great to get one of them framed:

 


The series is available at DC Comics or your local comic book shop!


This year for NYC Comic Con, I decided to dress up the two days I'm going. The first day I will be Catwoman basing it on Anne Hathaway's version:


This is a semi DIY project, I found an amazing seamstress on Etsy who is making the catsuit and belt for me. for me, bless you Julie! She sent me the materials she is using the other day:



I found the mask already!



I'll also be Catwoman for halloween lol, I am determined to do something fun this year: haunted house, pub crawl, house party, fright fest, it will be something! Gotta start brainstorming! What are your plans?
