This Doctor Octopus costume was inspired by Spider-Man The Spider-Man: No Way Home.
The Twitter account of Cat Cosplay tweeted photos of one of their pet models dressed in an incredible, pet-themed cosplay of Doctor Otto Octavius, otherwise known as Doctor Octopus. This cat’s cosplay is inspired by Alfred Molina’s portrayal as Doc Ock from No Way Home. You could consider going as far as to say that this portrayal of the Doctor “Octavipuss” is just as adorable.

The cat is dressed in a cat-friendly turtleneck sweater, trench coat and sunglasses This cat is outfitted to play Spider-Man’s iconic supervillains. From behind the cat the four robotic arms that define this character appear and appear to be capable of much more than simply bouncing around toy mice. Appendages are adorned with a number of features that are derived from the original material including gold segments on each arm, and segmented claws which can grasp. They also shine in a red-colored center.
Molina’s most recent portrayal of Doctor Octopus in No Way Home is a huge change from the comic’s initial portrayal of his yellow and green jumpsuit, and the distinctions don’t stop there. The Doc Ock shown in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is just as much the victim of his robotic arms as they are his master.

A scientist at first, who wanted to create renewable energy using nuclear fusion and fusion, Dr. Octavius became involved in an accident at work, causing his arms to become permanently fused to his entire body and losing his wife. He is unable to separate himself from his creations, and slowly falls victim to the artificial intelligence they contain. This causes him to become a criminal determined to prove that his invention is effective even if it means he has to take New York City along with his. He is ultimately convinced to be stopped by Toby Maguire’s Spider-Man and dies while destroying what he had created.
In the comics Doctor Otto Octavius also experiences the loss of his wife, and the addition of his own mechanical arms thanks to a lab experiment gone awry. Contrary to Molina, Octavius is fully in control of his evil acts, even without the interference of evil artificial intelligence. Doc Ock, a member of Spider-Man’s gang of rebels for many years and has utilized his skill and the powerful weapons available to accomplish this.
