This week's Creative Tuesdays' theme is 'Black Cat.' There's no title for this piece nor a story, just a costume idea for halloween or some other event where cats. I really wanted her to have red hair but somehow purple just came up and then it just took over but the cat-shaped head on her nails was very intentional plus the theme is 'black cat, so I had to have something black there.

    1. no, I don't think I'll be making a costume out of this. I don't really celebrate halloween so... but it is a good idea.
