Seeing a toddler dressed as an animal is cute and adorable and just about everyone will love it. Seeing an adult woman dressed that way at an adult’s only gathering may not be quite as adorable and far fewer people will enjoy it let alone love it. If you want to dress as an animal but still get a little bit of flirting action in, you had better think like a sexy beastie rather than as a precious kitty.
First things first, everyone assumes that sexy means that you have to show off lots and lots of skin. That is not necessarily the case. Take the sexiest of cat costumes ever: Cat Woman. Worn by Michelle Pffeiffer, the cat costume was full coverage from latex encased head to sexy boot covered foot. Did she need to flash cleavage to be sexy? No, she did not. Did she make that costume one of the hottest things to ever prowl across the screen? Oh my goodness, yes, she did. Sexy is not always in what you show or in what you do not show but rather in how you present the entire package. If you are dressed in any kind of cat costume at all, make sure that you lower your voice slightly and add a little purr to the end of any word you can. Slink around the room. You are a cat! You don’t merely walk. You saunter. You sashay. Own your feline moves and make them your own.
Next, animal costumes are great because of all of the possible textures and tactile sensations they present. For instance, you could wear a furry, plush costume and that would almost invite people to be near you, almost hoping for a chance to brush up against you. In fact, you might have more than a few people who want to try to pet you. Be a beast! Growl at them for such insolence. Bare your fangs if you have to, but make them respect you and your animal. Nothing says sexy like a confident, take charge woman who will not put up with being treated poorly.
Don’t go overly cutesy with accessories but don’t be afraid of the right ones. A leather dog collar with spikes can be intimidating at first, but coupled with the right costume, it becomes superhot. If you can wear them, stiletto heels are almost always the best finishing touch and can be added to almost super sexy costume.
