10 Mike Meyers: The Cat in the Hat

Mike Myers, an SNL veteran, said that he was concerned about how to bring the iconic children’s character alive underneath all the makeup and heavy hats. He was most concerned about keeping the cat’s frisky nature alive in a costume that took five hours to put together.

For Steve Johnson, a makeup artist and special effects specialist from Edge FX, it took approximately 2 1/2 hours to complete the makeup. The catsuit was made from human hair and angora, while the nose was made of foam latex. It was literally glued to Myers’ face. Inside the catsuit was a vest that circulated cold water and an air conditioner portable for shooting when temperatures exceed 90 degrees.
