Welcome to 
Alley Cat Scratch Costume!


This web is home base for Alley Cat Scratch Costume. Here we research costumes and build costumes together.    

We've well over 1500 pages of costume tips and sewing information here.  What started with just a bit of love for fantasy costumes and movie costumes has grown into a mega costume construction destination! 

It doesn't matter what your sewing skill level is.  We all dive in to help each other. There should be something here for everyone.

Please ignore the mess da Cat is making around Alley Cat Scratch's pad.  We're always expanding our content so... it's always construction time! All the costuming content is pushing Cats personal site into a corner creating extra dust and muss on the menus.  However,  2010 is the year for our big software upgrade so things are looking up.  Please use our site map or our search if you have trouble locating anything.
