DIY | Cat Nap



After every Halloween everyone's determined to get a cooler, better, more extreme costume than the next person but come the day before Halloween or Halloween day we're all going "oh shit!" I don't have a costume! Too much time spent deliberating on the perfect costume and getting caught up in life, Halloween has snuck up on us!

As a last minute Halloween costume for work I made the "basic" girl costume, a cat. 

Super simple and costs next to nothing, you don't have an excuse not to dress up! 

What you'll need: 
  • 2 bobby pins
  •  Card stock in black (or any other colour plus a black sharpie)
  •  Tape & scissors 
  •  All black clothing + makeup (optional) 

 Steps:

  1. Follow the template provided and cut out two "ears"
  2. Fold on the dotted lines 
  3. Glue the top corners together, or tape
  4. Pin to your hair with a bobby pin going through the bottom of the ear
  5. Wear all black and any extra makeup. 

For a bit of a more vampy look, I went with ombré lips! Super easy and sexy as hell, all you need is red lipstick and black eyeliner.
Take your black eyeliner and line your lips as you would with normal lip liner. After fill in your lips with a red lipstick, blend in the black and red together creating a gradation. 

Now, that all took less than 15 minutes.... Don't give the excuse you didn't have time to get a costume. Happy Halloween everyone!!!
