Ok idk too much about Cats Kilworth, other than it takes place during WW2, Mistos a milkman, and Bomba and Dem look/are prostitutes (idk tho) but (I'm pretty sure it was @bag-of-broadway-snacks) who said that Mistos the rations guy and he always manages to get food for the group and so Tugger calls him "magical" AND DAMN I HAVEN'T STOPPED THINKING ABOUT THAT! THATS SO SOFT AND CUTE!!馃ズ馃挄
lowkey wanna write a oneshot for it, but idk too much about that production.

What are some of your favourite costume designs from CATS? They can be from any production even if it's non-replica 馃挅馃挅
I鈥檓 going to go with non-replicas first since those costume designs are always really cool to look at.聽
I diffidently love the designs from the Kilworth House Theatre from 2019. It takes place in a bombed-out train station and takes place during WW2. The costumes are so creative and enhance the basic character traits of the characters. They make you want to be one of them in that train station. I also love historical AUs in general so this is a huge plus in my book.
Now to general(?) costume designs.
I love the costumes from the various Shiki Cats productions. This is for the reason because the costumes have a different look than others. From the white Rum Tum Tugger costume from the Tokyo 1996 production to the Mister Mistoffelees costume that I don鈥檛 think has ever really changed. But yeah. I love the costumes from the Shiki Cats productions.聽

Little headcanon I have about the Cats Kilworth production
TW: Talk of war, death and bombings
Cats Kilworth takes place during WWII, near the end. It takes place in a train station that has since been bombed and abandoned. The Jellicles are all people who were in the train station when the bomb hit, all spirits of people from all walks of life. Soldiers going to war, families and their children seeing them off, or just people travelling to and from their jobs. Each person's costume represents who they were when they were alive. In death, they've forgotten their past life, in order to accept their fate and hopefully move on to a new one someday. The realm the characters inhabit is a sort of purgatory where they all wait until it's their turn to someday be reborn into a (hopefully) better life than the one they had previously. The reason all of these people are stuck here together is because of the one thing they have in common. They all died on the same day and in the same way. They don't know they're dead. They just go about their afterlives, not questioning the fact that no one ever leaves. It's just normal to them. And every year, on the anniversary of their death, one of them gets chosen by their god, the "Everlasting Cat", to be reincarnated.

Cats Kilworth au head canons.
eSo if you don鈥檛 know, the Kilworth 2019 production of cats was very ww2 based. The set an all the costumes reflected that. I strongly recommend looking the designs up because they鈥檙e really cool. (and they inspired theses soo) -Jennyanydots was a teacher once upon a time. When the war started up she joined the army as a nurse. While on active duty she met Skimbleshanks who had left his job as a conductor to join the army as well. The two fell in love and when they left the army got married. -Old Deuteronomy is a WW1 vet. He was drafted when his sons were very young (Tugger only two) and when he returned he discovered Grizabella had abandoned the boys. They were in the care of a young woman named Jellylorum and her father in law named Gus. The two had taken care of the kids in order to do their part, as Jellylorum鈥檚 husband had also went away to war. Later, when the Jellicle鈥檚 became a group who took shelter in the subways, Deuteronomy was chosen as the community leader thanks to his war expertise. -Munkustrap joined the military in order to follow in his father鈥檚 footsteps but was unable to continue because of health reasons. He received an honorable discharge but was always ashamed of it. -Demeter was a聽鈥榣ady of the night鈥 so to speak. She had to make money somehow, and incidentally got pregnant by Macavity. She told him but he completely rejected her at first. When Munkustrap arrived home from war he found out about what his brother did and invited Demeter and her sister to stay with his family so he could right his brother鈥檚 wrongs. Macavity found out and got extremely jealous. -Admetus, Electra, and Carbucketty are all children of Jellylorum and Asparagus Jr. While Admetus aims to be a civilized gentlemen, his young siblings are feral children. This is because, after their home town was bombed everyone in the Jellicle tribe went to live in the underground train station. In those circumstances Jellylorum could barely manage to raise her young kids to be prim and proper. -Mistofelees is a milkman, but also the person who gathers rations for the group. Rum Tum Tugger swears he鈥檚 magical, and tells stories about it to entertain the kids, but the adults have no idea if he's just making them up or not.

Happy Birthday, @uppastthejelliclemoon鈥! I know how much you love this particular production and wanted to gift this to you!<3 I hope you have an amazing day, my dear!
I love the World War mostly human vibes of this non replica production and how intricate the costume designs are and how much consideration you can see want into every characters look. It has such a wonderful other worldly feel that truly makes one feel like they鈥檝e been transported.
