While I love the cowl that I previously used for Catwoman (by ReevzFX), it was a bit of a pain to get on. I wish I had video of the struggle. There’s no snaps or buttons, you basically just shove it onto your melon. Since I sometimes cosplay by myself, I needed something that was a little easier to get on, and maybe more “user friendly.” That’s why I reached out to DonQuijoteCosplay on Etsy about a fabric cowl. I’ve had my eyes on her shop for awhile but finally got around to pulling the trigger. She offers a complete Catwoman, but all I needed was the cowl. She was more than happy to create a listing for it! It didn’t take long before it was in my hands. I think it was just a few weeks. I will say, I’m an idiot and had it on wrong the first time I tried it on. There’s a buckle on this one and my dumb ass thought that it went under my chin. Wrong. It snaps behind your head to basically give a tighter fit. Learn from my mistakes kids! I find the fit on this one much better. Obviously that’s because it’s fabric and not a harder material. The eye area has extra support to make sure everything looks good when you’re wearing it. Since it’s tighter, it does a better job of keeping my hair in place as well.
I like that it looks handmade. I think it fits the vibe of the costume. I’m curious to see how it looks in photos but it looks pretty good here! If you’re interested in your own, or other Catwoman pieces, I believe she’s offering 10% off right now. I’m not sure how long the sale is for though! Anyone else working on new cosplays or upgrading a current one?
