This homemade costume for families entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Crystal, the 'Cat in the Hat' costume creator:

Crystal is Cat in the hat, Ericka is thing 1 and Emily is thing 2, Dr. Seuss is my favorite author to read to my children. I thought it would be great to bring Cat, thing 1 and thing 2 to life. I spent 51.00 on the material (fleece) for things and the hat and cats bow. I spent 40.00 on the black faux fur for the suit and the long white hair along with fabric stiffener. I created the Cat in The Hat thing 1 and 2 suits by looking at the book of Cat in the Hat, I used fleece, red and white, teal boa hot glued to the hat I sewed with white fleece And Velcro for the opening. Then I used embroidery on the white for the labels on my Brother sew and embroidery machine. For the Cat I studied making stuffed animals to create the hood using the black and white fur also. The face I found a cat mask at party city and cut out the nose portion and used spirit gum to hold in age. Fake lashes and white face paint with black lip stick. On the Cats hat I used the same red and white fleece, fabric stiffener in between double panels, welding wire and cardboard box to hold it up the attached it to the hood with picture hanger Velcro. The body suit I used the long hair and red fleece for the bow. The four fingered glove were also fleece. The hook umbrella I found on line to complete my costume. I had the most fun designing these costumes, my biggest challenge was the cats hat.
