^ I wouldn't be surprised if Cooke was inspired by that design in the first place.

Well my gold standard (and by 'gold standard' I mean 'the solitary specific one I can actually remember') would be the Pfieffer, which always seemed like one of the best getups in the Burton films.

Probably would like it better without the white lines but eh.

Yep, those are the pics I saw. I think they rather lay to rest the notion that this costume couldn't work.
Nah. I'm not sure the film may find a way to integrate the goggles in a way that doesn't seem goofy, but that fan attempt ain't it.
I've got to disagree with you there. I think it makes perfect sense for a cat burglar (I'm sorry, I couldn't resist) to have night vision goggles as part of her outfit. I really don't think they'll look any sillier than Crane's Scarecrow mask, Joker's makeup, and Bruce's Batsuit. They may have gotten rid of some of the more comic-booky stuff, but there is still alot in these movies you could easily call "silly".

Ah, but sense has nothing to do with my objection. Its strictly aesthetic - don't like the look at all. Besides, if she needs goggles (in which case: Why does the Caped Crusader lack them?) they don't need those little tips on the end, no?

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Didn't he have special glasses in his mask that dropped down when he was doing the cell phone radar thing in The Dark Knight? I don't see why he couldn't have night vision glasses that work the same way that we just haven't seen him use.

Personally, I like the current costume, and I can see it looking really good on screen.
That's what I had in mind.

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.
Lots of costume pics out there...





She looks like Rachel Miner.

Another nice shot...



More pics here.
Love It.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I'm sure the TDKR art and prop department could streamline the look of the goggles for the film for them to be more practical visually. Rao...this seems such an inane thing to be nitpicky about, and no that was not intended to be a shot at you Kegg, just a general observation. Selina's goggles have the kitty motif going on with them with the sharp angles protruding upwards. Anyways there are any number of ways the goggles can be redesigned "to look practical" and sure they will be.

^ I'm guessing something like a cross between ski goggles and night vision ones.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I definitely see the goggles, staying... but I do kinda wonder about the ears though.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I could see Anne being given some kind of stylized cowl piece with trimmed down ears. The ears are supposed to have high tech communication gear in them, the same with Batman's cowl piece.

I'd be very surprised if we don't have the ears.

After all, Batman's got his. And the ears are the only thing clearly making it a 'cat' costume.

Ah, in that case I could see them sticking around then.
