I knew that there was a good chance that there would be other Max costumes this year. Elvis (my son) wanted to be Max almost as much as I wanted him to be Max this year. Smiley If any kid is like Max, it's Elvis.  We tried to make it as close to the book as possible. That scepter is as accurate as can be. He had gloves but he didn't want to wear them and we recently had alot of rain, so I didn't make spats over the shoes like I wanted. He got so many compliments. I hope you like it and vote for us! Smiley
 
 We (my husband and I) made everything from scratch. Well, not the Converse shoes. Smiley







ETA: Here's another pic of him without the crown on so you can see the ears better. Daddy was dressed as a wild thing himself but it wasn't all together yet in this pic.

Thank you! While we were getting ready to go trick or treat and I was taking those pics we had a group of little girls come up to him telling him how he looked just like Max. I think that made his night.

great job on the costume, I love your attention to detail!! I saw a few dressed as Max around here as well but none of them did it right.

The movie came out right before Halloween. SO it's fresh on ppl's minds. I wanted to do this costume last year, but it was too close to Halloween to be able to pull it together right. So I vowed he would be Max this year. Then the movie came out and I knew I HAD to since I didn't want there to be a bunch of WalMart Max costumes out there when I did get to do it. I didn't know what level the movie was going to be merchandised. We made a point to make it after the book and not the movie.

I did love the movie too, BTW.
