Catwoman Fascinator Cocktail Hat

I made this Catwoman cocktail hat as a raffle prize for Jack of All Nerds podcast.

The custom fascinator was raffled off at the Nerds Like Us midnight showing of Tim Burton’s Batman Returns!

This was my first hat modeled after Michelle Pfieffer’s Catwoman, because duh she’s awesome. I used clear acrylic spray paint on painted worbla to get a shiny vinyl look and painted the stitches with silver liquid leaf.

Here’s some of the things I’ve been up to:
