Cat Costume

Airus loves the "cat" costume I made for him and he insists on wear ing it whenever possible!
He happened to see a preview of the musical "Cats" that was attached to one of his videos and he has been fascinated with the character "Macavity" - one of the rather over the top cats in the muscial. This is what he wanted to be for Halloween, so I agreed to create his costume.

I discharged black terrycloth knit to create the patterning. The long hairs are eyelash yarn hand sewn in place and the lightening painted on the front of the costume was done with metallic fabric paint. Airus is 3 years old.

He also looks a bit like a "Wild Things" character. Have you found the original book, Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats by T.S. Eliot? My copy has wonderful illustrations by Edward Gorey.
