Costume Information

General
Cost : £200
Time Taken : Two months

Description
The entire costume was built around a pink morph suit. I'm not used to them at all, and it was very strange to wear! The head part was cut off it, and the purple stripes were painted on whilst I was wearing it! It took many a patient night of my friend painting stripes on me to get them all done!!!!

I wanted the shorts to be a different colour to the rest of the costume to give this Cat a sort of punk look to it. Initially, I was going to have a ripped t-shirt on as well, but people convinced me to go ahead with a Rum-Tum-Tugger style fur effect around my neck and chest.

The fur was sewn on (again whilst I was wearing the suit) and the nails and claws were stuck on with fabric glue.

The wig is actually a fur hat I bought off ebay that I managed to sew some purple fur into. I bought the FX teeth from a shop in Manchester as well as the contact lenses (yellow cat for anyone wanting a pair).

The hardest part of this cosplay was overcoming my own self esteem and managing to go out in public in a morph suit!!!! XD

I kid. The hardest part was sewing the tail, piece by piece, and then sewing it to the shorts.

A friend painted my face on the day of the expo using Snazaroo paints.
