BATMAN RETURNS (1992) - Catwoman's (Michelle Pfeiffer) Corset
Catwoman’s (Michelle Pfeiffer) corset from Tim Burton’s superhero sequel Batman Returns. Catwoman wore her black latex corset throughout the film as she sought revenge for the wrongs committed against her. Batman Returns’ costume design team was nominated for a Saturn Award for its work on the film.

With a strong fabric frame, the corset is covered in large white angled stitches, contributing to the handmade look costume designers Bob Ringwood and Mary Vogt intended. The laces are stained with red, green, white and orange paint and make-up, and there is extensive distressing to the rest of the costume, as a result of the climactic sewer battle with Max Shreck (Christopher Walken). Black stitching emphasises the shape of the wearer. The back is fastened with black cotton laces passed through 20 eyelets.

The corset features “M. Pheiffer (sic), Stage 3, No. 4” handwritten on a tag, indicating the level of distressing applied, how far into the film it was to be used, and that this was one of several outfits created for production.

Catwoman’s corset is presented on a black wooden custom display stand. It displays intentional distressing and wear from production, including red, green, white and orange paint and make-up residue. Dimensions: 50 cm x 30 cm x 23 cm (19 ¾” x 12” x 9”)
