Mistoffelees (Quaxo) - CATS Musical




When I was, like, 7, my mum bought the film version of CATS on VHS and I must have watched it about 100 times.
I absolutely adore this musical, and reeeeally want to see it in the West End D>
Mistoffelees has always been my favorite character, and I have a thing for black cats and, well, generally cats. . .
So I shall be losing some weight and squeezing myself into lycra for MCM Expo May 2010, 'cause I keep seeing other CATS around and I want to join them in rolling round the floor!!!

EDIT: Bought the DVD off Amazon for £8, and I still love it 8'D
Though on closer inspection of the costume, it looks like its going to be quite a bit of work >_<;

Fantastic! It is one of my favourite musicals and I am really looking forward to seeing some progress. Misto has always been one of my favourites ^^

Ha ha, I can tell by your username ;) I had it on pretty much non stop while knitting. It's incredibly motivational!

Wiggy Wig

So I've finally got round to starting this thing.
It's going quite well actually, not taking as long as I thought it would.
The most tedious part is tying the crepe wool into plugs to glue on, but eben that's not so bad if you've got something to watch while you do it.
Aah, I hope I get this done in time. . .

7th May 2011


So I've finally gotten around to buying everything for this, and the unitard, swimcap and textile paints have arrived. Still waiting on the crepe wool, make up and shoes, but hopefully they'll be along soon.

I've also getten started on the other leg warmer. I'm about a third of the way through, but my knitting skills have improved so it shouldn't take me long to finish :D

I attempted painting a small portion of the unitard, and it's not as easy as I thought it would be. The paint is very thick, and when watered down goes grey, so I have to paint over and over unti it looks dark enough. It's going to take me a while to get the whole thing done, so I may have to enlist some friends to help >_<

Good lord this is tedious. . .

So, I'm onto knitting the leg warmers, and I'm not even half-way through one D:
It would probably help if I wasn't 5 foot 10, for my legs, they are long.
I think I've spent about 8 hours on the warmer for the right leg, and knitting in the spot took about 3 by itself!
WAIIIII they got to be patterned D>

6th November 2010


Just finished knitting the left arm warmer.
It took me 8 hours D:
And I've got three more to go, and the leg warmers are twice as long FFFFFFFFFFfffffffffFFF
Hopefully I'll get quicker as I go, because 8 hours is just ridiculous. . .
