Cat Portraits In Costume: 15 Cool Costume Portraits

The only thing cuter than seeing a cat dressed up is seeing your own cat dressed up. Some cats will tolerate wearing a funny outfit at home (we’ve all seen the cat dressed as a pirate, haven’t we?) while others are entirely unimpressed at the thought of even a simple bow tie.

Let’s be honest, most cats don’t want to participate in dressing up for a funny photo. For those of us with stubborn kitties who refuse to dress the part, we can see them looking like royalty, uniformed professionals, or talented sports stars by using ArtYourCat. It’s all the fun of dressing up without the stress and claw marks.

Cats As Royalty

Cats always look at home when dressed as royalty, whether it’s their serious expression or the way they demand respect, there’s something very fitting about a cat in a royal costume.

There’s something to suit all kitties so you can transform your cat into a confident heiress, a demanding duchess, or a priceless princess. There’s plenty of options for the boys too from the king to a duke, mayor, or captain.

It feels like a royalty costume is the only one a cat won’t roll their eyes at. It is their destiny, after all. 

Cats As Workaholics

Maybe your cat’s serious nature is better suited to wearing a uniform? A protective cat would look great as a police officer “pawfficer”, an adventurous cat could be an astronaut in space and a fussy eater could be transformed into a chef.

Other top options include firefighter, doctor, and nurse. We think the best portraits are the ones that relate to your cat’s personality or your own career path.

It’s a lot of fun to think about which costume would best suit your cat – the chances are one of the costumes will immediately jump out at you and you’ll think “THAT is our kitty”.  

Cats As Sports Stars

The sporting costumes are a lot of fun too. The sports pet portraits make great gifts for sports lovers and for coaches.

Cats can be transformed into goalkeepers, baseball players, and football players.

If your cat doesn’t have the most sporting personality but loves to watch from the sidelines in support, they could be an excellent cheerleader!

For the cats in sports shirts you can personalise the player number on the shirt to make the portrait extra special.
