Abaddon from Supernatural

Abaddon (played by Alaina Huffman) was one of the Knights of Hell, a title bestowed upon her by Lucifer because she was one of the first humans to fall and become a demon.  Abaddon is responsible for the death of the Men of Letters in 1958, and she later attempts to overthrow Crowley and become Queen of Hell.  When possessing Josie Sands in the ’50s, Abaddon dresses in era-appropriate attire.  When she returns to take over Hell decades later, she opts most often for leather jackets and tight fitting jeans, though she still often dons bright red lipstick.

Batwoman

Kate Kane, aka Batwoman, is the title character of the live action CW show Batwoman. Three years have passed since the disappearance of Batman, and his cousin Kate Kane (Ruby Rose) must take the mantle to be Gotham’s next vigilante. Under the alter-ego of Batwoman, she protects the city from criminals. In the second season, an airplane crashes with Kate as a passenger. Although her body missing, her Batsuit is found by Ryan Wilder (Javicia Leslie), a former convict. Ryan becomes the newest Batwoman, aiming to finish what Kate started. We included two wig options, one for Kate Kane and one for Ryan Wilder, depending on which Batwoman you want to cosplay. If you’re able to splurge, ProCosplay offers the entire set. The Rubie’s option doesn’t include shoes, but a pair of black shoes or boots will do.
