I need your huge brains for some brainstorming :)

I need to be creative budget wise with my costume this year as a kitty. If you all have any ideas that I can find at a thrift shop or somewhere cheap hit me with em! :) I am bringing my litterbox cake along to the party to match, so I have to be a kitty!

black tights and t shirt. paint whiskers on your face. can probably find ears at 99 or big lots stores. i would do a tail from fabric, if they don't have one in store. if you decide to do this, i will give you directions for the tail.

That's not cheap Dina... lol
I'm thinking of wearing either a black dress I already have or a shorter skirt with black tights and a black top.

Don't forget your black gloves--can't forget your paws!

That is such a cute idea with the cake! I would love to see a picture of you in your costume, with the cake!

-Tights
-Black Shirt/Skirt or dress (have)
-Black Shoes (have)
-Paws (I'm thinking black gloves with pink felt glued to the fingers and palm :)
-Ears (I have ears but they are leopard print, so I need to get some)
-Tail (buy or make one)

Check this out.
How to Make Your Own Cat Ears by ~SedatedArtist on deviantART click on the pic, it will enlarge.
I bet you could just paint the ears, instead of using fur, if you can't find any.

Besides painting whiskers paint the tip of your nose as well.
Oh and maybe a cute collar you can just use some ribbon and sew a couple of bells on the front.
