Hello all! Cheesy This year I was the Cheshire cat for halloween  Grin This is how I did it! It was pretty easy.

First, I bought a light purple sweatsuit from a thrift store (cheap!). I made the sweat pants into the skirt I'm wearing, then I made the ears and boot gators from the leftover pant fabric. The leggings came from the girls section at target. Wink For the stripes, I used purple duct tape! Man, that stuff is amazing. The tail is light purple fleece that I just sewed, stuffed, and striped. I was going to use wire to hold it stiff, but I couldn't find my wire. Oh well. =) I did my own make up with eye shadow from target. I had purple striped gloves too =) They're only in one picture though.

PICTURES!!!



The whole thing!



this shows most of it. And the gloves!



This one is just to show how the tail hangs, sorry my arm is kinda in the way..  Smiley



This is the best one of my make up. (Janelle was a kitty too!)


And of course, the crazy cat himself. My inspiration.  Smiley


Thank you guys so much for looking, I hope you like it! Cheesy
C&C please  Smiley

I have come to the firm belief that there is nothing that duct tape cant do.
