Catboy maid is a great outfit for cosplay, and it’s not too difficult to put together. You will need some basic sewing skills, but with a little patience, you can create this look easily. Follow these simple steps, and you’ll be ready to go in no time.

Step 1: Pattern

The first step in making a Catboy maid outfit is to take a piece of paper and fold it in half width-wise. Trace around the outside of your leg on each side, drawing circles for where you would like the widest part of your hips to be.

Then cut out the curves and tape them together so that they are in the shape of an upside-down “U.” Trace around your waist, then draw two circles that overlap where you want the widest part of your hips to be. Tape those together into a figure-eight shape.

Remove the tape from the paper and then lay it on top of some newspaper or other stiff paper. With a marker, draw guidelines for your seams. Use the lines you’ve drawn on the “U” shaped pattern to find where you should draw long, straight lines that angle upwards toward the top of the pattern.

Draw two of these, one at the front and one at the back, so that they meet at a point towards the top.

Do this again with the figure-eight pattern, but make the lines angle downwards. Connect the two lines at the widest part of your hips (the top of each “8”) to form a diamond shape where they intersect.

Now cut out these pieces and tape them to newspaper or poster board so that you can stick pins through them without having to worry about stabbing yourself later! Keep the scissors nearby in case you need to trim anything.

Step 2: Fabric

You can use just about any fabric that you would like for your Catboy maid outfit, but it’s probably best if you embroider with either cotton or poly-cotton blends. Leather will work too, but keep in mind that it is expensive and may be difficult to work with.

The fabric you choose will also play a large part in how accurate your final product is, which is why it’s important that you look for available patterns that are similar to the one on Catboy’s outfit.

For example, some fabrics have little white polka dots printed on them already. If you buy one of these, then you can skip drawing them on yourself, but if your fabric isn’t patterned, then it’s up to you to draw them in.

Once you have the fabric ready, fold it in half width-wise and lay out the pieces from the pattern that you cut out earlier. Use pins to attach each piece of paper to a different part of the fabric, leaving enough room between them for where you’ll sew.

Tip: As long as your fabric is folded in half, it will be easy to lay out all of the parts you need, with different sections of each piece overlapping each other. When you’re done pinning the pattern pieces in place, carefully cut around them so that they are raised slightly from the fabric.

Remember to leave extra room around the seams for where you will need to sew them, especially if you are sewing pieces of plastic or metal together. You can always cut off part of the seam allowance later if your pattern pieces are too big.

Step 3: Sewing

Once everything is pinned onto your fabric and ready to go, you need to follow the lines of your pins and sew everything together. The best way to do this is by using a zig-zag stitch so that the stitching isn’t too thick or bulky.

You can also use a serger for this step if you prefer, but be sure to use a zig-zag stitch for the final step.

If you have a sewing machine, be sure to use a needle that is appropriate for your material. For regular fabric, a size 16-18 needle should work well. If you are sewing plastic together, then it’s best to use an upholstery needle.

It has a sharp point but also a wide opening that can adjust to the thickness of your material.

If you are sewing leather, you will probably need to use a mid-weight needle so that it doesn’t get caught up in the thick material. Be careful when using this kind of needle because they tend to cause skipped stitches if the presser foot isn’t set at just the right height.

Sew each piece onto your costume, making sure to leave extra room at the seams so that you have enough material for where you’ll need to hem them. Be careful not to sew too close or directly onto the pins so that they don’t tear out of the fabric while you are sewing.

Also, take care not to sew over any loose ends of thread because they tend to stick out and look messy.

Once you have finished sewing all of your pieces together, your Catboy maid outfit should be complete! If you are going to a convention this weekend, then be sure to try it on for size before the big day arrives, just to make sure that everything is fitting properly.

You can also use this opportunity to test out how comfortable your costume is, which will help you decide if you need any small adjustments before wearing it in public.

Step 4: Dress Up

Now that your Catboy maid outfit is complete, it’s time to put on the finishing touches and try it all on. You can go with either of Catboy’s two hairstyles, though his purple pigtails are more appropriate for when he is in his maid outfit.

If you want to be more accurate, then start by putting on your black undergarments before slipping into the dress itself.

Note: Be sure that all of your seams are tucked away or pinned underneath so that they don’t show through the costume. Also, be sure to try on your shoes before putting on the dress.

The blue polka-dot fabric of the dress is a little bit thicker than it looks, so buying a pair of thinner shoes that slip on and off would be best. You can also check out the matching Catboy headband for sale from online stores if you would like to complete the look.

We hope that you enjoy wearing your new Catboy maid outfit and that it helps to bring out the magic in all of your costume adventures.
