"I was trying to go with a more functional suit. For the most part I stayed true to this idea; when it came down to the boots I admit I got a bit whimsical. I gave her a low, wide heeled boot with old fashioned spats, and the telltale Black Cat fur. I wanted her to seem able to move lithely, like a cat. The mask was difficult; trying to design something catty without being Catwoman and not looking bat-like is difficult. The domino mask always bugged me because it didn't conceal anything. Also, I wanted her to have a satchel -- someplace to hold her ill-gotten gains and/or equipment."
