TDKR Designer Lindy Hemming on Hathaway’s Catwoman Costume
Empire Magazine has an interview with Anne Hathaway about the The Dark Knight Rises and it includes some insight by the costume designer on how they came up with Selina’s costume. I’m still trying to figure out why a stealthy cat-burglar would need 2 and half inch metal spike heels/weapons (especially since we’ve seen her brandishing a gun in the previews) but interesting none the less:
Catwoman wears cat ears because she’s motherfucking Catwoman and she motherfucking likes cats. What kind of grown man walks around in a bat mask? This is comics, it’s not supposed to be reasonable. The suit itself isn’t too bad, but the mask is ridiculous and not giving Catwoman any resemblance to a cat is such a load of shit.
