    Michelle Pfeiffer "Catwoman" cowl from Batman Returns. (Warner Bros., 1992) Original super villain cowl constructed of lycra-embedded vinyl panels applied over a cast foam rubber character cowl form. The interior cast foam latex form fabricated to fit the exact contours of Pfeiffer's face and head. The black vinyl panels are roughly stitched together with bold white thread and the back of the cowl is split for easy application to the actor and with velcro closure. This "stage 2" tattered cowl is visible during the memorable rooftop fight with "Batman" (Michael Keaton), when "Catwoman" falls into a truck full of kitty litter. It is also seen when she meets "The Penguin" (Danny DeVito) above his mayoral campaign office. Famed production artist José Fernandez was commissioned to create the foam latex Catwoman cowls worn by Michele Pfeiffer. There were a total of thirty-six cowls made for the production of Batman Returns, with nine for each stage of distress. Almost all of these cowls were destroyed during production, making this cowl a very rare piece of Batman history. Exhibiting age, production use, and some minor shrinking of material in the back. In very good to fine condition.
