Hi, I'm wondering if anyone has ever made this costume, if so, which patterns did you use?  Material? etc.

Also, if anyone has any other cool ideas for a costume for a 5 month old it would be most welcomed.

Any info or tips you may have to make the costume as realistic as possible would be great!

Thanks!

All I can think of is to find and alter a pair of footy pajamas. I don't think I have ever seen anyone dress up like max before, kudos on the idea! Coolest baby costume ever!

I'd try a white sleeper and make a hood out of felt with little pointy ears.  You could also make a felt crown.  To make the bushy tail, I'd buy some faux fur from the fabric store, sew it into a tapered tube and stuff it with fiberfill.

I'm with you here! (I must add, I'm surprised to see someone with the same idea!) Except I'm making it for an adult male. Should be interesting heheh. Altering white footie pajamas is probably the best bet. I'm thinking a fleecey kind of fabric(?) for the hood and the claws and ears. Don't forget the tail! I can't remember if he wears the crown for the entire book, but I'm definitely including it in the costume too! (It might just be easier/better to skimp on that detail for a 5 mo. old though.)
Good luck!

Oh and btw, try searching www.flickr.com for "max where the wild things are costume". Most of those are children. Perhaps that will help.

I have also been commissioned to create this same costume for my 25 year old fiance.  He is a musician and plays in the Anchorage Symphony and needs a costume for the children's' halloween concert.  I have no idea how to make one of these.  If only I could find white footy pajamas in adult sizes!!  Good luck.  I'll post any helpful links I come across.

Wow i too am making a Max costume for my son - he'll be 11.5 mths old for halloween... sigh i was so close in getting a halloween baby and he had to come 2 weeks late...
theres a woman on here called exubereactor - i think the link below will take you to her:

her icon is her son dressed as Max
I was thinking the same thing - i have a fleece hooded sleeper that could work just figuring out the ears! But it seems to me that the costume should be flannel not fleece. and that means making the whole thing instead of just altering! anyways can't wait to see what you come up with!
