Who is Catra?

Catra started out as a cadet in the Horde and was then promoted to the rank of Force Captain and eventually served as a second-in-command. She was raised by the dark sorceress Shadow Weaver alongside her best friend Adora. Unfortunately, Shadow Weaver wasn’t as kind of a mother as one would need and often taunted or chastised Catra in front of Adora. Soon, Adora had left the Horde and after Catra tried to convince her to return, realizing her friend wasn’t going to, she was filled with anger over what felt like betrayal and that was enough to fuel her ambitions.

Bringing Catra’s Style to Life

Outside of battle, Catra actually cleans up quite nicely and she definitely shows it with her style of fashion choices. Although she seems to stick to the same sort of color palette but there’s nothing wrong with that.

  • Start out with the most simple part of the outfit, a fuchsia button-up, long-sleeved and collared. Make sure your buttons are buttoned all of the way up and then add a pair of dark purple leggings with slits on the thighs of the pants. Catra seems to love her cut pants, possibly a nod to her nails and cat-like appearance.
  • Next, a bow tie but don’t bother to tie it, leave it hanging around your shoulders as if you forgot about it all along. A dark purple suit jacket over the shirt and a pair of dark purple fingerless gloves will add to this look nicely.
  • Don’t forget to get a brown wig with longer, fluffy hair and some cat ears to rest on top. You’re also welcome to get a cat tail and some cat slippers to really sell the whole look!

Proud of what you’ve accomplished? You should be! The creators, Larry DiTillo, Diane Keener, and J Michael Straczynski made a wonderful story and its characters This Catra cosplay is just the start of something new for you, and don’t let it slow you down now!
