Nyan Cat Halloween Costume
|Share the love...||
Recently, Craftster member shdwstrm entered a costume contest at the Toronto FanExpo 2011 in Canada, presented by G4. She went adorned in her handmade Nyan Cat costume, and walked on all fours across the stage to the infamous Nyan Cat music.
Peep the amazing video below to see her in action!
Here’s how shdwstrm made her Nyan Cat costume:
The costume is 4 feet long and a bit over 2 feet tall. The pop tart base is a large piece of cardboard, covered with a textured pleather, and painted a light tan color.
The pop tart icing is a light pink fur, cut with rounded corners, and glued on the center of the pleather. The sprinkles are dark pink velour.
The Nyan Cat head and tail were constructed with a foamcore base, then covered with grey fur. The eyes, nose and mouth, are fleece that she sewed onto the face. The cheeks use more of the pink fur from the pop tart icing.
The rainbow is made up of fat strips of cotton cloth that she sewed together. The red fabric at the top of the rainbow has a small pocket for a straightened coat hanger, which is attached to the pop tart to give the rainbow some structure.
