I have made my 7 year old daughter's costumes every year. My best one yet was the mermaid costume 2 years ago. I made an awesome wig. She looked great.
This year, she wants to be a cat- easy right?
But I want it to be special and cool.
Any suggestions on how to make a basic black cat interesting?

a cool curvy tail?
mostly when people do the cat costumes (that i've seen anyways), they forget the tail.
and a little Hello Kitty style bow?

well, as they say, "God is in the details". What kind of kat does she want to be? a cat like in "Cats", or something more cartoonish like Hello Kitty? I might be a good idea to search on google images w/ your daughter to see what she likes. Good luck!

Last year I went as magic cat, basically, a cat face and ears, a litte bow tie around my neck, and a big sparkly wand. I made a purple and black tutu thing, and had lots of glitter on my face.

It sort of looses it's catness after all that, but people still got it. I went round wishing nine lives onto people with my wand!

hope they might give you some ideas!?!?!

I was a skunk one year. =) I live in a cold state, so it good and warm. It was just black sweats, black hoodie, facepaint, and a stuffed pant leg with a white stripe connecting the bottom of the hoodie to the crown of the head/hood. I liked it!

They best part of animal costumes is the makeup...  A friend of mine's little girl was a cat last year, with a fun fur tail and ears (too cute!) and a black unitard, but the moderately punk and highly detailed makeup was what put it over the edge for her (she's 8, but she was channeling the 80's with the colors she picked out...green and pink and silver, with black details).  It was awesome, and she had a blast.
