There are a handful of Halloween costumes are never going to go out of style. Year after year they make their appearances: witches, ghosts, Disney princesses, cats… Chances are if you've celebrated Halloween, you have some old props and costume pieces lying around. We're recycling the old and making something new with these five last minute costumes for cat lovers. Dig your old cat ears out from the bottom of your dresser drawer, and let's get prowlin'.
Fancy a quick nap? Throw on some comfy PJs, a sleep mask, and a pair of furry cat ears, and you're all set for slumber. If you really want to sell it, toss off your fuzzy slippers and take a nap on your party host's couch.
The Cat's Outta the Bag
Who let this cat out of the bag?? For this last minute costume, all you have to do is carry around an empty sack. Secret's out!
Meow! Grab your favorite striped or black shirt, plus a mask to hide your identity. You can pick up a burglar mask at any costume store, or make you own on the cheap. The mask can be made from black fabric or felt. Cut out an oval, then cut two holes for eyes and a triangle at the bottom for your nose. Hot glue a piece of elastic from one side of the mask to the other, and you're set for your next big job.
Cat Got Your Tongue
At a loss for words? All you need for this costume is a piece of construction paper, a marker, a hole punch, and a necklace chain or cord. Draw the outline of a tongue onto construction paper (make sure to add the crease in the middle and a couple of dots for taste buds), and cut out. Punch a hole at the top to feed your necklace through. e
While this is definitely the easiest last minute costume on this list, it's the attitude that's going to make this outfit work. Throw on some shades and go as the coolest cat on the block. Tubular, dude.
