I have no hope of getting any votes, because y'alls' costumes are AMAZING, but I can't resist showing off my little girl.

Where the Wild Things are has always been one of my favorite books, so Lily was Max for Halloween this year.

I'm an extreme novice at sewing, so we bought a dinosaur costume, removed the spines off of the back of it, and then I tacked some claws and buttons on, and used a fox tail in the back.  The crown  my mom made from gold tag board and scraps of fur.

Voila!

Well, we're in Minnesota, so Halloween tends to be pretty chilly.  Snuggly is necessary.  (Though it wasn't too bad this year.

Thanks for the compliments, ladies!
