How to Make a Cat Costume. Making a cat costume takes a short time and soon you will add some feline fun to any festivity. Follow these steps to make your costume from common items.
Things You'll Need
- Needle and thread
- Face paint
Buy a hooded sweatsuit from a thrift shop. Turn the top inside out to create the fur for your cat costume. Get a sweatsuit in black to add a spooky touch to your Halloween costume.
Cut two triangular ears out of black felt and sew them to the top of the hood. Trim some pink felt to smaller triangles and stick these to the first ones.
Attach an old stocking to the tail of the sweatshirt or to the rear of the sweatpants. This is the tail for the cat costume. Make it short and perky, or long and swishy according to taste.
Select four black socks. Stick some pink felt circles to the toes to create the cat's paws.
Put on the Halloween cat costume, including the two socks for your feet. Wait a while before putting on the front paws. You need your hands for one more job.
Use the face paint to paint your face black. Paint white whiskers around your nose.
Slip your hands into the socks for the front paws. Your cat costume is ready for a Halloween prowl.
