Description

Used the lazy people’s block from http://www.patternschool.com, then made up the rest without pattern.

The cowl is made of two pieces of fabric sewn together, then mark where the top of your head is, sew on that line. Then mark around your face and cut on the line.
For the horns, work out which shape to make them, I used wadding which i rolled into a triangley shape to keep the horns smooth. I marked on the cowl where I wanted them and then had to hand sew them to the cowl.
In the end I attached the cowl to the top, and attached the pom poms.

The collar is made using white felt and white satin. Cut out a shape using an existing t-shirt or the top of the costume, then work out the tear drop like shapes and repeat them over the collar.
The felt provides the collar with structure and weight.
I use white press studs to attach the collar together over the left shoulder.

Material Notes

Red and black stretch fabric. White felt and white satin-like fabric for the collar.

    Thank you very much. This was an interesting project. My other half went as his own twisted version of bat girl, see here: http://bat-thing.blogspot.com. He took pictures of the whole process and put it up on a dedicated blog.

    that looks awesome! I love the way you did the collar, i never thought of using satin but i love the way the shine looks. i was harley last year, i did a dress instead of the bodysuit. I’m thinking of doing her new “Arkham City” costume for next year…she’s my fave :D
