DIY Cat Costumes
Now that you have your cat makeup tutorial sorted, it’s time to work on your costume.
Making your own cat ears
All you need is some felt and a headband. Cut out some triangles and hot glue them to your headband. Hey presto! You have some cat ears.
You can use the pdf guide for DIY felt cat ears here.
Making a cat tail
A lot of people choose the ditch the tail. If you’re feeling extra crafty, you can stuff an old pair of black stockings with some newspaper or any extra fabric you have around the house.
If you want, you can put a coat hanger inside the tail to give it some shape.
If this is too much effort you can always get one on Amazon or eBay.
Finishing your cat costume
Wearing all black is a solid choice for a basic cat costume.
If black isn't your thing, just pick a colour and stick to it. There’s no reason you can’t be a pink cat! Just make sure your ears and tail match.
Get creative and pick a colour theme that suits the personality of your cat creation.
