9 Different Cat Halloween Costumes That Aren't Basic

With Halloween approaching faster than you can say pumpkin spice latte, your costume search has probably turned frantic. In times like these, it's often best to settle on one of the classic choices. May we suggest a cat?

Cats may be classic, but that doesn't mean your costume has to be boring. After all, throughout the animal kingdom and pop culture, the feline presents itself in many forms: sultry superhero cats, ferocious wild cats, harmless house cats, Instagram-famous cats, and beyond.

Whatever cat you choose to be, the great thing is that it can all be adjusted to meet your makeup skill level. Even if you're a total beginner who owns nothing but a black eyeliner pencil, there are still plenty of cat Halloween costumes for you. Same goes if you're a makeup virtuoso. Here, we've got felines for everyone.

Scroll through to see all of the different cat Halloween costumes and Halloween cat makeup that we're loving right now.
