Hey guys, hope everyone had a happy Halloween! I went as Max from Where the Wild Things Are, super original, I know, but I really wanted a cute and WARM costume this year. I live in Western Mass and every Halloween my school has a massive campus-wide party, so I spend most of the night outside and am usually very chilly. My costume was heavily inspired by Max's costume in the movie.
And now, pictures!
Here's a full body shot, but you can't really see my whiskers or tail.
Here's from the side, I'm holding up my tail for you!
Here I am, howling. Also, note the pockets (my addition to the basic sort of design of the movie)
Close up of the face, so you can see some of my whiskers, and also the scepter and crown in more detail.
And here's a shot of me in my living room, once the party had taken off a bit.
I made the whole thing myself; I used a pair of adult sized footie pajamas from Target that I never wear, ripped them up, and used the pieces to create a pattern for the fake-fur. The whiskers are rubber coated wire, the crown is made out of that lightweight posterboard stuff and the scepter is made out of the cardboard tube from a roll of paper towels, a tennis ball, and construction paper and I spray-painted both the crown and scepter gold. I would have taken a better detail shot of the scepter, but I lost it some time around 12:30AM. I was surprised it made it that long
