From the Three Little Kittens Who Lost Their Mittens to the more modern Hello Kitty, kitten costumes make a “purrrr–fect” choice for the next dress up event. Prove superstition wrong in a lucky black kitten costume is a not–too–scary choice for Halloween.

Items needed to make your Kitten Costume

Items Needed:
Black leotard
Black leggings or tights
Furry black boot covers
Black shoes
Black headband
1 square each of black and white felt
Long strip of black felt or faux fur
Safety pins
Face paints
Whisker kit


Step 1: Dress up in a black leotard (sleeve style your choice) with black leggings, tights or fishnet hose. Add a pair of furry black boot covers that extend from the ankle up to the knee; you can wear these over boots or just with some comfy black ballet flats.

Step 2: Make your kitten costume ears by gluing triangles of black felt lined in white onto a black headband. For the tail, use a long length of black felt, cording or any other fabric of your choice at safety pin or glue to the kitten costume in the rear.

Step 3: Create a kitten costume face by using face paints to create a little black nose and pink cheeks. A whisker kit will let you attach realistic whiskers onto your face for a darling look.

Step 4: For fun, bring along kitten costume props to add more personality to your style such as a pair of knit mittens to mimic the nursery rhyme kittens or a pair of elaborate boots and hat to be the storybook character, Puss In Boots.
