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.
