Detective Comics Cosplay: Catwoman (Yaya Han) Cosplay 19 AUG 2012

Asian-American Yaya Han is a well known cosplayer gracing the convention scene, famous for her buxom figure and often meticulously detailed costumes. This time around she has drawn on the popular Adam Hughes’ Catwoman design, donning Selina Kyle’s whip and trademark tight clothes – claws out of course!

Selina Kyle, better known as Catwoman is one of Batman’s oldest adversaries and potential love interests, and as such has seen a number of changes and rewrites over the years. However, one thing that has remained constant is her status as an athletic, elite cat burglar – with a penchant for cats.

Whilst she doesn’t possess an super powers as such, she is an Olympic level athlete and gymnast, a highly skilled combatant and of course has all the attributes necessary for any stealthy burglar. Of course, being a burglar puts her squarely on the opposite side of the line from Batman, but as the years have rolled on by, she has been cast as somewhat more of an antihero, making it particularly difficult to know just which side of the fence she straddles.

Nevertheless, certainly a strong female character whom you most definitely don’t want to end up on the wrong side of!

Covered: Catwoman #45 (Adam Hughes) Comic Book Art | Comic Books 19 FEB 2011

Selina Kyle has always been a character sitting on the fence over at DC Comics, straddling the line of being either a villain or a likeable person, the latter being difficult to make a reality considering Selina Kyle as Catwoman is at the heart of it all, a burglar.

However, this hasn’t stopped the writers from churning out stories forcing us to like her and it is no wonder that this popular temptress is as popular a character as what she is.

As for Adam Hughes, he is a master illustrator when it comes to bringing cute girls to life and with a career that literally spans decades, there is no surprise that when he is turned to to create an eye-popping cover, he delivers.

I mean, just check out this piece of frighteningly brilliant cover art delivered for Catwoman volume 3, issue 45:
