Black Canary Pants
|Keeping with the black clothing theme you will also need a pair of pants for this costume.
The best and easiest way to replicate the pants that the character wears is to buy a pair of black faux leather pants.
These pants should be tight fitting to your legs as they will have to be pushed into the boots you will be wearing.
Black Canary Mask

This gun holster should be a dual drop leg holster which attaches to your belt and down your leg to hold it in place. As you would suspect this gun holster should be black.
Black Canary Batton
