Salem the Cat

 In case the title of this post didn't give it away, I dressed up as Salem from Sabrina The Teenage Witch for a Halloween party. There had been talks of making plans for Halloween which is when I decided to use my Crown and Glory cat ears as I had yet to find an excuse to wear. A friend decided she was going to have a sci-fi and fantasy Tv show themed party. There went my cat idea until it dawned on me that Sabrina counted as fantasy and Salem was a cat! after some googling to see how to make a Salem costume different from your average cat, I decided to go with this as it was pretty easy to do. It is a very loose interpretation of him but I wasn't going to wear a furry skin tight catsuit as it's not something I would have felt comfortable in. I couldn't get creative with face paints as I have no talents in that department plus apparently I'm allergic to face paint so good old black eyeliner, eyeshadow and lipstick it was. I thought I would have a practice and take some photos as I'm forever running late when getting ready for parties (who doesn't?!). On the night I made the eyes sharper but the completely mucked up my whiskers so they ended up much thicker than I would have liked. In the end I think that made them show up in photos better. 

Hope you all had a good Halloween! What did you dress up as?
