Yesterday I went to Ostia Lido - the seaside resort of Rome - to visit a small but very exciting free exhibition of original props and costumes from The Dark Knight Rises. The movie opens tomorrow in Italy so the whole thing was done to promote the official release.

They had the military version of the tumbler, the batpod, Batman-Bane-Catwoman costumes (definitely the most exciting part), and costumes for Bruce Wayne, a generic Gotham PD officer, a Bane goon and a Gotham football player. Everything’s shown in the photoset (including a close-up of Catwoman’s infamous and admittedly ridiculous heels) and here are some other pics as well

Catwoman’s costume is so tiny which was a surprise because I’ve seen Anne Hathaway up-close at the Venice Film Festival, and while she’s definitely thin she didn’t look like a stick figure which is what the catsuit suggests. Granted she was wearing a huge Valentino gown back then but still. I guess the catsuit stretches a lot.
