I was not a cat as planned but a leopard instead.
Costume companies seem to design their garments for women less curvy than I. Well really, the truth is that almost all clothing-makers don’t design with curves in mind.
On the model in the “this is what the costume will look like” picture, the outfit looked okay, slightly conservative even, but when I put it on, I felt like I character from a Russ Meyer film. (Since I was a feline, “Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!” perhaps?)
