Catwoman Costume

This amazing Catwoman costume worn by Michelle Pfeiffer in Batman Returns was sold by Profiles in History last month.  This was designed by Bob Ringwood.

The latex and PVC used in these costumes tends to deteriorate quite badly.  There was a Catwoman costume in MoMA's Tim Burton Exhibition that was in very poor condition.  This costume has clearly been well cared for.  It's still as beautiful as it appeared in the film so it's no surprise that after buyer's premiums this sold for over $30,000.
