Granted, I wear my crazy cat lady costume 365 days of the year, but for the purpose of a last-minute Halloween costume, I feel like I need to put in a little extra work to truly get the message across.
This costume draws inspiration from a crazy cat lady action figure I found a few years ago at the bookstore.
See, homegirl’s got the right idea. Why bother to put on real clothes when the cats just ruin ‘em anyway? LOL!
To start, I grabbed my bathrobe and pinned a few stuffed cats on it. FYI, you need a minimum of three kitties, because the third cat is the gateway cat. It’s the crucial part of the puzzle that takes you from a mere “casual feline enthusiast” to full-blown CCL.
Then I put my hair up in rollers, put on some crazy, bright and glittery makeup…
…and then did a kitty-inspired mani.
If you really want to make the costume authentic, add a large lint roller (real crazy cat ladies never leave home without them… Yes, I know from experience!) and a bag of cat treats. And maybe even a real cat, but only if yours isn’t terrified of the stuffed ones.
