You can do so with this black t-shirt for less than $20 from Amazon, it also comes in brown, gray, red, and blue.
Now, you definitely can’t forget your ears and tail for this costume look. Luckily, you can continue to do your Halloween shopping conveniently on Amazon and pick up this accessory set for less than $11.
