So I decided I wanted to be Max from Where the Wild Things Are for halloween, but make it girly, and more of a pinup style like all of my costumes! My friends thought it was funny that I was being a pretty little boy for halloween Wink

Full length shot.

I made everything here. I started with the hat, from a tute posted on here, and just modified it a bit to add the arms and claws. I live in FL, so a full length body suit wasn't going to work, it was 80 degrees here! Then I made the little dress, and added buttons to give it a max look. I found a feather boa that looked like fur for the tail, it was so soft! I made spats to finish the effect of the pinup theme, and i loved them best! i want to wear nude fishnets ans spats everywhere now! it felt so classy Cheesy I made the crown and scepter out of posterboard, a christmas ornament and a wooden dowel and spray painted it a bronzy gold. I also made a little shrinky necklace with the heart max and carol etched in the movie. This was my favorite costume ever! I felt so fun, childish, and cute all night, and I'm 23!!

you can see the necklace in that pic ^

I was such a happy girl!! Thanks for looking! Hope you like it as much as I did! Grin
