Maurice Sendak's "Where the Wild Things Are" was one of my favorite books as a kid, and I was PSYCHED when I found out what it was being made into a full-length movie! (If you haven't seen it, GO NOW! It's fabulous!  Smiley ) In honor of the film (and because, coincidentally, Halloween was coming up soon) I decided to replicate Max's trademark wolf suit. I teach elementary grades K-4, so I even got to wear my fancy new duds to school!

I started with a McCall's pattern and made LOTS'o'mods to it. I was rather pleased with how it turned out... I hope I get another excuse to wear it!  Grin

LET THE WILD RUMPUS START!!!


I'LL EAT YOU UP!

My creative and very helpful hubby made my crown out of a plastic flower pot which he cut and spray painted. Thanks, sweetie!


My clowning around in the park in my  comfy suit...


ENJOY, and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Because of your mercy I stand here unashamed."

Amazing!  I really love it.  Was it hard to sew with that thick material?
