Heya!

So, I am going to two parties tomorrow night and didnt have a costume until about an hour ago yikes!  Then it hit me go as the crazy cat lady (think Simpsons)! Comfy, funny and fun!

So, tomorrow I plan on hitting Target for a nightgown, beige half-calf stockings, slippers, ugliest bathrobe I can find, glasses and stuffed cats to safety-pin all over me.  Any additional suggestions?

My big question though is what to do with my hair?  I have medium length blond hair (a color that I assure you has never been seen in nature!  Cheesy). 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

what about thrift stores? the robes/gown will be more worn Smiley would stamp cat designs all over the nightie that would be cool.
cover your hair with a wig tatter it spray with spray back comb it and put in  pony tail Smiley

you could stamp cat paw prints on your robe?
oh and for your hair, when i think of cat lady, i think of older women. maybe get some gray in it? make it stringy somehow? or you could always throw it up in a messy bun. that's what i think of but i'm not too sure about the simpsons allusion

Second hand stuff is the way to go, unless you can find something stunningly ugly at the supermarket. I would get that spray-in hair colour to do your hair. The spray makes it look all dry and gross anyway, so it'll help with crazy old lady hair. Just scrunch dry your hair so it's kind of wavy-ish, maybe backcomb a bit and then spray the crap out of it with gray/white temporary spray.

I really want to see the finished costume though. It's an awesome idea.

cat hair stauck on the clothing would be a nice addition. when you live with enough cats , nothing is untouched by their fur.

Thanks so much guys!

I won first prize at a costume contest tonight!

Yay! I LOVE Craftster!

Oh, btw, Target had NOTHING so I went to the mecca of all things "old lady"...... Sears! 

I was checking out and the clerk actually said, "What a pretty house coat, I have to get one for my mom"!!!!  Sears ROCKS!  Oh and by the way, the housecoat (at Sears they call it a "duster") is so roomy and comfy it just may replace my usual sweats!  Geez, the older I get the more I understand my Grandma!

Seriously, you have to check out the "duster"!!!  Ugly, yeah but when you are crafting who cares? right?.....right?.........umm, yeah, well, sorta...........right?  I just bought three............
