Okay you guys.. this is good. We’re good, right? I’m gonna be doing Nepeta now. She wears so much stuff this is gonna kill me okay let’s go..
I don’t think you’ll be able to find anything like this for sale, of course. You’ll probably have to make it yourself. Joy! Tutorials 1 and 2. Also, instructions on how to attach horns to a hat: [Here]
I found so many wigs it’s not even funny.
1 -2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7
For her teeth, you could use the nails and dental strips method, or you could get some vampire/cat teeth from Scarecrow or Dental Distortions or somewhere like that but I’m warning you not to get shitty teeth. Please don’t get shitty teeth. Also I’ve heard Dental Distortions will dye gums gray for you if you’re polite!
For her shirt, the actual one from TopatoCo is probably your best bet, though a tad expensive.
For her coat… well, nobody really knows how to answer this properly… Your best bet would probably be going to an army surplus store or Salvation Army, Goodwill, Value Village, etc. Any thrift store or something could have exactly what you’re looking for. Let me tell you another trick of the trade… YARD SALES. That’s right. Fuckin’ yard sales. Yeah, I know it’s hard to find them any time except summer but gosh, some people don’t know the kind of cosplay valuable shit they’ve got! Yard sales, aka heaven. Moving on. Some purchasable coats I found were pretty short and the ones that could work well were super expensive.. This is a good one I found, but I don’t know. This and this are a couple of tutorials I’ve found, but they’re pretty short. However coat patterns are usually pretty easy to lengthen.
For her battle claws there are so many methods you can use. What I’d recommend if you don’t want to actually have to make her claws is just getting some blue gloves and cutting off the fingers (remember, they’re not half-fingers, they don’t have fingers at all).
For her pants they just look like sweats, pj pants, track pants, or baggy jeans. I’d honestly recommend staying away from skinny jeans as they stray from the canon (you can tell in the picture above that her pants are indeed not tight). They are gray pants with a darker gray elastic band around the top, like yoga pants or something. I personally own a pair that look almost exactly like them except for a happy bunny design. (sorry for shit lighting and ugly face ((even though it’s covered)) (((also apoligies for parenthetical overkill))) )
Now for her shoes… You can use this post for directions on where to buy such shoes, if your headcanon is kitty/furry feet. These are pretty good choices for buying regular blue shoes. And here is a fantastic tutorial for making your own. Also, while shopping in Dollar General I noticed some cute little kid’s slippers that looked like wolf feet. They were white and brown with black claws. So yes, these things DO exist and if you can find them in your size and dye them, then take it from me they would make excellent Nepeta shoes!
And last but certainly not least: her tail. Don’t be afraid, it’s not so bad. This is an amazing tutorial floating around, and all of these are some fantastic and relatively affordable choices for fabrics. If you’re still freakin’ out, then you can probably find a nice pre-made tail. After all, furries are totally genius miracle workers when it comes to making tails and stuff. So you can search something like blue furry cat tail and find one pretty easy! It’s not quite as cheap as making your own tail. The cheapest one I found was pretty cute and canon and it was 19.99 plus shipping (which I don’t remember if that was free or not??) anyways, that’s all good for her tail.
Oh my god, we’re done! I can’t believe I finished this before I went to bed. Thanks for reading! Good night!
