My daughter wanted to be a kitty cat, but the stock costumes were just plain boring.
Believe it or not, I had a leopard bodysuit from when I was 20 and by dressing it up I was able to use it (you cannot see how long it is on her). The body suit was sleeveless, and included long matching gloves.
I made a tutu from 4 different colors to really enhance the costume! I really guessed on the length when I bought the material at Joann’s. I bought something that was elastic so that I could tie it around my daughter’s waist. Then, I tied/knotted all the tulle to the elastic. No sewing for me. ;)
I bought ears, a tail, and bow tie. The ears were attached to a headband.
Finally, I attached black feather boas to her wrists and feet with fabric glue.
To complete the look, a little eyeliner makeup was used to create whiskers and a kitten nose.
The body suit was sleeveless.
