Last Halloween, I became obsessed with this image.
I spotted it randomly on Pintrest, and fell in love. There was something magical about it.
I have no idea who created it, whether it is old or new, or where it originally came from. At the time all I knew was that I wanted to be this for Halloween.
I tried hard to find some kind of vintage spaceman costume, but failed on all fronts. I’m not very crafty, so there was no way I was going to make one. In the end, I just created my own spin on the costume. I combined 3 different costumes to create my ‘Space Cat’. I effectively scared most of NYC…or at least the people I saw on the subway since I refused to take off my mask.
Since that time, I’ve fallen in love with all things ‘space cat’. I love the combination of cats in space. I find it highly entertaining for some reason.
I decided to do an Etsy search for ‘space cat’. I found some pretty rad things. Click through to see some highlights.
I know a lot of people these days are creating art on top of old text from books, and it is a bit tired, but I love this.
Printed on an old page from a dictionary, this space cat has a bit of sadness about him. What are you looking at, Space Cat? Did something go wrong on the mission? Is your suit too big for you? Questions.
Um, yes. I need these. I don’t really ever plan on getting married, but perhaps I could use these at my 40th birthday party. I also have a monthly pizza/champagne/bad movie date with friends. I need this for our monthly meetings. It’s also available as a pint glasses, and a couple of other sizes. The champagne flute is just about perfection, though.
Ok. Let’s get serious for a minute. I’m a bit obsessed with finding decent cat-themed clothing. If I’m gonna go full force into this ‘cat lady’ thing, I at least want to have a cute wardrobe.
That being said…I totally want this sweatshirt. It’s just so over the top crazy, it works. I don’t know if I believe this came from the 90s, but I don’t care. I mean, there is just so much crazy on this. I love it.
I don’t do well talking about art. I just know what I like, and I like this. Something about the tone of it really intrigues me. I don’t have much to say except that I like this. I’m gonna go stare at it for awhile.
When all else fails, have something made. Grab a photo of your cat, send it to this lady, and BAM!, your cat is Space Cat. I’m sure I have tons of friends that could do this in Photoshop, but it might be easier to just pay this lady the $25 to do it. Laser cat destroying the Earth. Awesome.
