TRDL 2011 Series No. 79 - Catwoman [Nolanverse Redesign]

This was my redesign of Catwoman in the Nolan film context, done in 2011. We had seen, at this point, some images and video from the shoot showing Anne Hathaway in a plain black jumper with, at some stage, silver high heels and at another stage, a set of goggles that when flipped up look like ears. These could have been real, or maguffins, we just didn't know. But the design challenge here to present my own concept of what Catwoman should look like in that film’s universe.

Much like my first Catwoman redesign in January of 2011 (a comic character blank slate redesign, so different) my image of her is an athletic, stealthy burglar performing heists. I gave her a tactical suit with a tool belt and copious quantities of rope, with the very upper arms exposed merely for cooling and frankly design style. She wears a full head cowl with an open face area, and a pair of low-light imaging goggles with slit lenses, giving her a cat eye appearance. I gave her cool Egyptian style cat-eye makeup as well, for science.

An alternate version of this piece, featuring a red tone to the structure in the pic, is available in the process blog through the menu above.
