This year, the cats became our inspiration for a ridiculous couples halloween costume (we've done this before).
I thought I had an adult cat costume in my stash, but it turns out the at the sizing was not going to be big enough for B, I could have graded it, but ugh! Too much work. But, there just happened to be a pattern sale on at Fabricland so...
I used Simplicity 2853
I cut a small for me and a medium for B and added about an inch to his sleeve and leg length which was perfect. I have to say that I was pretty sick of sewing these by the end of it. Way more pieces than I usually deal with for a project. I learned this the last time I sewed a jumpsuit costume for Liam but the passage of time makes one forget. You can see my review of this pattern here.

Diesel is a bit more elusive.
Didn't spot him? I'll zoom in:
Sometimes he sits on our step.
Too much cat candy for Diesel?
I'm the only one who dresses up at work — my coworkers have come to expect it.How can I disappoint them?
I made both costumes out of fleece. I have never been so comfortable.
The last time I wore a cat costume was 1979.
Halloween has always been a big deal for us.
Happy belated halloween!!
