So the other day, a friend posted this photo to my Facebook timeline:
My cats may never forgive her.
It turns out that there is a whole, glorious world of CAT COSPLAY!
How fun is that?
Well, fun for the humans, anyway. (Though I have to say that Sailor Mewn, there, doesn’t look upset.)
We have the two cats: one princess and one street urchin with PTSD.
Cosplay daughter has been dressing them up for years- the princess even once won a pet costume contest for Halloween- (I think because she was the only cat entered).
Until this, though, I don’t know that she had considered actual cosplay for the kitties.
I hadn’t either.
I sure am NOW!
To be fair, our street urchin, Abby, doesn’t really need an actual costume to cosplay. If she weren’t afraid of EVERYTHING (humans walking into a room, humans walking out of a room, saran wrap, the washing machine, etc.) Abby would be a perfect Mochi for our Hiro and Aunt Cass cosplay:
Abby would never make it through a convention, though. As esposo (recently upgraded from novio!) has observed, Abby is sure that EVERYTHING means that the apocalypse is upon us.
That leaves Princess Pearl, Empress of Everything.
I’m thinking Elsa:
Light fur, big blue eyes. Fabulous, high-maintenance, feline-in-charge.
Stay tuned. There may be Elsa cat cosplay!
Update: Cosplay daughter says that while she is totally on board for Cat Cosplay, there is NO WAY she’s dressing Pearl up as a “overrated Drury Princess.” (not a Frozen fan- though I think that’s from the ubiquity of the franchise more than anything else.)
we’ll see. Daughter suggests perhaps Cinderella…..
