hey, all you cats and kittens ask me stuff

Thank you kindly! I made them out of a pair of gray tights. It’s actually really easy.
There are plenty of tutorials out there, but basically you trace and cut out your hands from cardboard of cardstock, put them in the feet, sew around them (use a sewing machine, it’s stronger and faster), cut between the fingers that you sewed, seal the stitches with nail glue or fabric glue, anti-fray stuff, whatever’s around I guess (go light on the stuff, it’ll probably darken the fabric where you put it on), glue on fake nails (caution!!!!! if you glue them while wearing the socks, be really careful cause you’ll probably glue them to your actual nail. To avoid this, just put a little glue on, spread it around, then press it down lightly. If it gets suck, don’t panic, just…try to pull on the sock fabric without ripping it…it worked for me?). Lastly, cut a hole in the crotch and put the things on like a strange shirt.
That was longer than I anticipated, but still skimpy in detail, so I hope it helped. Like I said there are lots of nice tutorials out there with pictures; but, my biggest suggestion is to use a sewing machine instead of by hand.
(If you’re referring to my shirt, I use Avery Iron-on shirt transfers. If you’re referring to my horns, hah, I don’t even know I grabbed the cheapest acrylic stuff the store offered. For the troll paint I use snazaroo. For my arms, I actually wear armsocks).
