What type of fabric is best for the construction of a catboy costume?
Do It Yourself Catboy Costume
If you have a little one who is a fan of the popular animated television series, PJ Masks, then you might want to consider this DIY costume idea for Halloween or just for fun dress-up days. The show features three young kids who transform into superheroes at night to fight off villains. Catboy is one of the main characters and with a few simple materials, you can make your own Catboy costume at home.
- Blue bodysuit or blue long-sleeve shirt and blue leggings
- Light blue fabric paint or dye
- White felt fabric
- Black felt fabric
- Gray felt fabric
- Blue fleece fabric
- Sewing machine or needle and thread
- Glue gun and glue sticks
Step 1: Dye or Paint the Blue Clothing
If you do not own a blue bodysuit, you can use a blue long-sleeve shirt and blue leggings. We recommend using a light blue fabric paint or dye to make the color brighter and bolder. Follow the instructions on the paint or dye packaging to properly dye or paint the clothing.
Step 2: Create the Cat Mask
To make the signature cat mask that Catboy wears, use the white felt fabric to cut out two cat ears and the black felt fabric to cut out the shape of the mask. Glue the white cat ears onto the top of the black mask. Then, cut out the eyes and mouth of the mask. Using the gray felt fabric, cut out two small circles and two smaller circles to create the iris and pupils of the Catboy mask. Glue these onto the black mask.
Step 3: Make the Catboy Tail
Using blue fleece fabric, cut out a long strip that is about 8 inches wide and 24 inches long. Fold the strip in half and sew up the long side, leaving the ends open. Turn the tail right-side-out and stuff it with fiberfill or stuffing. Sew the open end closed and attach it to the back of the blue bodysuit or shirt using a needle and thread or a glue gun.
Step 4: Complete the Costume with Accessories
Finally, use a blue headband to wrap around the head and attach the Catboy mask using glue from the glue gun. You can also accessorize the costume with a blue cape made of blue fleece, or even a pair of blue gloves to complete the look.
This do-it-yourself Catboy costume is a fun and creative way to dress up your little one as their favorite superhero. With a little effort and creativity, you can make a costume that will have your child feeling like they can take on the world.

The Catboy costume is arguably one of the more popular costumes from PJ Masks. The costume features a blue jumpsuit, a matching blue and black hood, and a tail and ears. To make a DIY costume, you’ll first need a basic blue jumpsuit or onesie. Next, find black and blue fabric to create the hood which should have cat ears and holes for the eyes.

When making the costume, be sure to pay attention to detail and make sure all pieces coordinate. If you’re unsure of how to sew, find tutorials online or ask a friend who’s familiar with sewing for guidance.
