Best Bombshell Catwoman Costume Guide
Bombshell Catwoman is one of many portrayals of the popular character throughout the years. Most people probably think of Michelle Pfeiffer or Halle Berry as the ultimate Catwoman portrayals, but what you might not know is the DC Collectibles came up with the concept of producing a line of statues and figurines called DC Bombshells, giving a new take on many female superheroes.
This version of Catwoman is modeled on 1940’s style pin-ups and diesel-punk, and is from an imagined universe where female superheroes stayed at home in World War 2 in order to protect the US from invasion. If you’re keen on trying your cosplay skills on this sultry Catwoman adaption, you’ll need a set of Cat Ears, Sunglasses, a Pearl Necklace, Black Short Dress, Sheer Stockings, the customary Long Gloves, Black Stilettos, and Catwoman just wouldn’t be Catwoman without her trusty Black Whip!

About Bombshell Catwoman
In 2013, DC Collectibles started launching statues taking a fresh new look on all of our favorite female superheroes in a line titled DC Bombshells. The concept is based on an alternate reality where during World War 2, the female superheroes were stuck at home in the US and therefore took on the task of defending the country against invasion. The style of these statues was essentially putting the famous superheroes into 1940’s pin-up style artwork.
At April 2018, there had been 25 different statues created and being sold in stores, with more planned for the future. Since the figurines were so popular, a digital comic was released in 2016 titled DC Comics Bombshells, with six volumes being created. Another series titled Bombshells: United was released in digital format in 2018, with more to come. It is expected that print versions will likely follow both series.
