Just as a tip, provide reference images if you're asking for help. There are different types of cat ears... kinda & also the fact you put some effort into the thread will help with getting replies.

I can understand not googling something, you want to know the recommended method and such, sometimes google will turn up the crappy over used versions. But even so, show that you've put some effort into looking stuff up and show us what you do and don't want.

Really, this post isn't directed at you, but everyone posting for help & I felt like saying my piece. D;

{Also, I find cat ears really tricky. ;-; So if you find a tutorial that's fool proof, do link!}

For my cat ears I just got a headband, some cardboard and 20cm of fur (minimum cut lol)

then you draw the outlink for the cat ear, position the headband underneath it so you can get the curve right, cut out two pieces of cardboard. use the same shape + seam allowance on the fur. Cut out for pieces. Sew each pair rightside together, turn inside out, put the cardboard in it to hold it's shape then hot glue it onto the headband 8D

.....May do a proper tutorial later >_> Also it may be a good idea to take your wig along so you can be sure to get a shade that matches the colour of your wig. It makes it look better 8D

Also use a thin headband if possible. I made some ears which are the same colour as my hair and I just cover the headband with my hair. People were just like '...there's a headband there, right?'

if you're using a wig, i totally recommend sewing the ears to your wig. c:
makes it a little tricky to put the wig on-- tie the hair up with ribbon first before you put the wig on-- but at least you know you can do somersaults in it and the ears won't come off... alone Razz LOL JK. just make sure the wig's secure on your head and you should be sweet xD

did that for my espeon ears. c:
