Greetings all from a Newbie !

Been one of those "Artsy Craftsy" people all my life - always beading, origami[ing], re-working terra-cotta from Mexico, etc.

My current desire is to create / make / a MAX! costume which means that I need to locate a pattern for same.  I am pretty skilled, but not THAT skilled enough to create one from scratch.

I realize that is may well be best to hire this creation out since although needlework and basic sewing are firmly withing my realm there is no small doubt that this type of construct could easily surpass my ability.  Current rate for this item [custom made] on eBay is about USD $170.00

Halloween is not necessarily a cut off for completion since I am the kind of person who [like Max] could easily envision wearing my wolf suit around the house when I'm feeling the need for super strength... all year round

Please advise what you have seen / discovered / found either as an existing pattern OR something that you were able to modify into a Max style outfit.

I am going over the WTWTA trailer and capturing frames and the like as well as pouring over the book for details about the construction, etc.

Please lemme know - I promise to share / make a version of the costume for my GodChildren, etc. to further good Craft Karma.


PS - this site is WONDERFUL!

After seeing the previews, I am SO EXCITED. It wasnt my favorite book growing up, but just the giant costumes and max in a grubby suit just thrill me.

I think his suit is a basic jumpsuit pattern, that you can make with few modifications from store patterns. You'd have to add ears, tail, and whiskers...I am so making a max suit.

it seems to do up in the front with wooden buttons (http://images.allmoviephoto.com/2009_Where_the_Wild_Things_Are/2009_where_the_wild_things_are_001.jpg), but it probably is velcro closure with buttons sewn on top, cause it doesnt seem to gape at all.

max wears black converse or similar ripoff design. (http://www.daemonsmovies.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/where_wild_things_are2-500x334.jpg)
