This Halloween I decided to make my son the cutest boy costume EVAH-- Max from Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are. This is my first ever hand-made Halloween costume, and I was so pleased with how it came out. I used the pattern sold by Jess at Running with Scissors. I didn't get a lot of staged photos because, well, my boy is almost 2 and never stays still for more than 10 seconds, especially when he knows you want him to. Still, I hope you can see all the components well enough from these:





The white parts of the costume are made out of fleece. The tail is black faux rabbit fur, and the whiskers are made out of pipe cleaners. You can see that the whiskers got progressively curlier the more it was worn.  Smiley I only wish I'd gotten a better photo of the tail! Thanks for looking!

The pattern I used can be found here: http://projectsbyjess.blogspot.com/2007/01/woodland-animal-costume-sewing-pattern.html

Max is so sweet! And his curly whiskers make him all the sweeter.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Thanks! I like the whiskers on the curly side, too. It was so cute because I'd ask where his tail was and he'd show me. Smiley
