Hello all!

Please pardon the title as I really had to get your attention! My 6 y/o son has taken a very keen interest in cheetahs in the past few months(he can tell you anything you want to know about them!) and now he has asked for a CHEETAH costume for Christmas and if that isn't bad enough, that is all he has asked for! I CAN NOT for the life of me find anything that will suffice! I have shopped the old fashioned way(actually going to the store)as well as looked at several hundred sights on the interet. Please help me, I really want to get him this costume and I would be forever grateful to anyone that can help! I would need a size 6-8. Please email me at nzrmom@hotmail.com with any info.

Thank you for your time and effort.

Elizabeth aka Cheetah Boy's mom(yes, he calls himself Cheetah Boy)

I Googled for images of cheetah costumes, but got nothing. Well, I did find some cute cheetah boxers and a nude chick wearing cheetah body paint...but nothing else.

Do you sew? Leopard print fabric is fairly easy to find and would make a reasonable substitute. (Unless he's absolutely pedantic)

I made my DD a snow leopard costume for Halloween. If you can find a pattern for an cat like animal it would then just be up to the print on the fabric.
