There is more to life than increasing its speed.

Anyone who has or has been around a two year old knows that they are full of energy and opinions of their own!  So...I decided to make my son this Max costume from Maurice Sendak's "Where the Wild Things Are."  The book's first line is:  "The night Max wore his wolf suit, and made mischief of one kind and another, his mother called him WILD THING!"  It suits my lovable son to a "T"! 





I modified a Simplicity pattern for a dinosaur costume.  The jumpsuit and hood are white fleece, the black tail is faux fur.  I improvised the ears (used a cut-up water jug to make them stiff because I had no interfacing) and used fun foam for the whiskers.  Unfortunately, my son only wore the hood for a few minutes because he hates stuff on his head. 

I felt like I really got all the details of the costume right, but sadly, everyone kept calling him a cat.  *sigh*

that is adorable! and using a cut up milk jug for stiffening is so, so crafty..I love it when people come up with ingenious solutions to problems..bravo on the costume and the thought process.......and I am totally impressed you got him to keep it on long enough to get some pictures.
