Cat Costumes – Creating a “Purrfect” Costume for Males and Females

Most cats are relatively small animals that have fur; however, there are larger cat species, and those that do not possess fur. Domesticated cats are typically kept as pets for companionship, and larger cats – such as panthers, tigers, and lions – are typically displayed in zoos and other types of centers. Both cats that may be domesticated and those that are captive for educational and viewing purposes may be found in the wild.

Each year, millions elect to dress in a cat costume for holiday-related events, costume parties, and other types of dress up activities. We have posted many pictures below that show cat costume ideas for men, women, teens, children, and babies.

In looking through the costume pictures above, you can see that there are numerous ways to dress up as a cat for a party, or a holiday-related event. By far, the most popular of all cat costume ideas is the black cat. According to those that have created this homemade costume, this is the one that is easiest to acquire materials for and it is the absolute fastest to create. In most instances, you can simply look at our pictures in order to acquire an understanding of how to create the costume displayed.

If you find that you are experiencing a little bit of difficulty, we have included some basic instructions below on how to create a cat costume that will be appropriate for either a male or female:

Instructions on a Basic Black Cat Outfit

Items Needed:
  • Plush Black Jacket with Hood
  • Plush Black Pants
  • Black Shoes
  • Plush Black Fabric
  • Cotton
  • Needle and Thread
  • Black Foam
  • Pink Foam
  • Black Face Makeup
  • Black Gloves

Step 1: The first step is to create the ears that will be placed on the hood of the plush black jacket. To do this, you simply cut out black foam triangles and then smaller pink foam triangles that will act as the inside section of the ear. Glue the pink pieces on the inside of the black pieces and then glue or sew the pieces onto the hood.

Step 2: Next, you must create the black tail. You will use the black plush fabric to do this. Once the fabric is measured, you will sew it inside out and then, near completion, turn it right side out and stuff it with cotton. Immediately thereafter, you should then sew the tail to the hind region of the black plush pants.

Step 3: Now, you may put the plush outfit on the body, complete with the black shoes.

Step 4: Once the costume is in place, you may then use the black face make up to place a black dot on the tip of the nose and whiskers on the cheeks.

Step 5: You may then put the black gloves on the hands in order to complete the look.
