Preview PIRP 1/6 scale Catwoman Custome set - evening dress, maid uniform & prison garb

PIRP has released pictures of their 1/6 scale Catwoman Custome set consisting of evening dress, maid uniform & prison garb - all tailored for 12-inch Catwoman figure :)

In "The Dark Knight Rises" film directed by Christopher Nolan, Anne Hathaway plays Selina Kyle, a cat burglar described as "an associate" of Bane who establishes a relationship with Batman that "takes some of the somberness away from his character."

Kyle is pursuing a "clean slate", a computer program rumoured to be able to erase a person's criminal history, when she crosses paths with Bruce Wayne. Hathaway auditioned not knowing what role she was being considered for, admitting that she had one character in mind, but only learned that the role was Selina Kyle after talking with Christopher Nolan for an hour. Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle goes from maid uniform to evening dress and also prison garb, among the many "costumes" she wears throughout the movie.

Anne Hathaway described the role as being the most physically demanding she had ever played, and confessed that while she thought of herself as being fit she had to redouble her efforts in the gym to keep up with the demands of the role. Hathaway worked out five days a week for the role, including rigorous exercise and stunt training followed by an hour and a half of dance.

She explained, "I've always thought that skinny was the goal, but with this job I also have to be strong." Hathaway trained extensively in martial arts for the role, and looked to Hedy Lamarr—who was the inspiration for the Catwoman character—in developing her performance.

hi! this will fit on Selina Kyle from HotToys, right? By the way, are the clothes of Selina Kyle removeable?

It appears to be meant for Hot Toys Selina Kyle and I think it's much easier to remove her head and put it on another body rather than remove her clothes / costume
