Lynx : Studio IronCat

Inspiration


The call for entries for the 2001 IronCat Cat Girl Calendar went out and I knew I wanted to be a part of it. I collaborated with artist Doug Smith, an IronCat employee at the time, to design a unique kitty girl costume for me. We came up with the idea of a Lynx, so I set about researching the big cat.

Creation


Since I was growing out my bleached blond hair at the time, we incorporated it into the original design. I created a headband with kitty ears and white furry tufts on the top and sides to resemble the lynx.

The body suit is made from a spotted faux fur with white furry accents and leather lacing up the front. I made a small bobbed tail and paws with acrylic nails. The feet are covered slippers with white furry trim.
