For the post-Halloween toga party I went to last night, I decided to go as Bastet, the Egyptian goddess with the head of a cat. Here she is for reference:

However, I didn't actually start my costume until the day of the party. A quick trip to JoAnn's and less than an hour at the sewing machine and I came up with this.

It's just a simple tunic and overdress with a collar and loin piece made out of decorator fabric.

Here's a close up on the face/makeup:

And, of course, an obligatory action shot.

Hope you guys like it! It was simple and quick, but very fun. I made everything except the ears (because I already had some) and the jewelery.
