Heck I don't even remember the one costume. There was that cartoon one, the one from Batman Returns, her get ups from the 1960s TV show... and besides the Pfieffer one damned if I even remember them that well.

The goggles. A little too hausfrau. Is she Catwoman or a character from the Far Side?

Night Vision goggles are great accessories for the cat burglars.

Personally, I like the current costume, and I can see it looking really good on screen.

"Hausfrau?" "House woman"?

I think it translates as "housewife".

Though I'm not sure what's house-wifey about goggles and a cat-burglar suit.

Yep. I opted to make the most obscure reference imaginable because it seemed apt.

I once read someone, somewhere, referring to Gary Larson's hausfraus, and that word and those dependably bespectacled women have remained ever since intertwined in my memory.

Exhibit A: Far Side Housewife

Exhibit B: Random Google Picture Of That Kind of Glasses

So yeah, those goggles, I am unethused. Let's see if the film version does any better.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I saw a photo online somewhere of a fan made Catwoman costume (with goggles) for a masquerade party. And this girl also had the looks for it. It looked fantastic and very well made.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

So because of the goggles Kegg, you're willing to already write off the character? Okay I take back what I said earlier. Kestrel was correct. Sometimes I forget the nature of fandom. lol.

Sir, I think you've confused me with a straw man.

At what point did I suggest that a dislike of the goggles had anything to do with how the character would be written or acted in the film?

Hell pretty sure I acknowledged maybe the film's goggles have the potential to not look as bad as those comic stills.

You know what glasses with that eye shape are called?

Cat eyes.

Seems to fit...
