My challenge this year with Halloween was to think of a costume I could make using stuff I already had, since I'm broke as a goat these days. I couldn't settle on anything for a while when one day, while staring at my Inky cat, I had a revelation! I had purchased a tuxedo shirt for super-cheap at Boomerang earlier this year, which, combined with my black pants & blazer would be perfect for the basis of a tuxedo kitty costume!
Boomerang and found a pair of white lace fingerless gloves, a black bow-tie, and small black scarf, which I later rolled up and sewed together to make myself a short tail.
Eventually she sat down and licked herself, distracting herself enough for me to snap this.
Next, I found a white eye mask I had from a few Halloweens back and using a Sharpie I colored the mask except for around the eyes holes, took some ribbon with wire-enforcement which I fashioned into ear shapes and then used craft glue to attach black yarn onto for the ears, and finally sewed on some pieces of waxed dental floss for whiskers.
All I had left to decide was the shoes to wear with it, but after a few moments thought, the answer was just too obvious:
Pretty nifty if I say so myself! Especially for a budget of around $10.
What are you going to be this year?
