I'm a big fan of CATS the musical, and it was my gateway drug into costuming and photography. This costume is based on the character of Jemima.

Construction info:
Wig - Made by me out of crepe hair hot-glued to a control top pantyhose base, with ear flaps fashioned from cross-stitch fabric.
Unitard and Gloves - Painted by me using brushes, bottles, and Jacquard textile inks. The "fluff" is organza I dyed to match with RIT and frayed with a wool flicker, then attached via sewing machine.
Tail - Made by me by tying a variety of yarns onto a braided yarn base.
Warmers - Knitted by the awesome Roxanne for me.
Shoes - Purchased pre-painted from Lady Jemima.
Face paint - Applied by me using Snazaroo cake make-up.
