Introduction: Where the Wild Things Are KW and Carol

Second Prize in the
Halloween Contest

 We Loved "where the wild things are" characters so much and my twin daughters really wanted to be them for Halloween. I went to work on it  with cardboard, old fur coats, fur remnanats, an old leopard costume from years ago, animal house slippers and my imagination. The noses were made out of pantyhoses and socks! I have no experience or education in design or sewing but it came out great. It took about 1 week to do Carol's head and then KW took about 3 days. My daughters were so pleased and so was I.

These are amazing costumes!! :)

stahp! youre making every other parent look bad! lol. this is way too cool and, by the way, awesomely done.

I've made a lot of costumes, and I must say I am still extremely impressed by what you accomplished. Your first one???? Incredible! And how did you make the eyes? We all want to know.

These are fabulous!!! I know you are proud! May I ask how you made the eyes?

omg these are wonderful!! but what is the head made out of and how did you make it so that it isn't too heavy for your child to hold on his head all day?? thanks!!!!!!

THATS SO COOL! HOW DID YOU MAKE THE HEAD PART! I REALLY WANT TO BE THIS FOR HALLOWEEN BUT I DONT REALLY KNOW HOW YOU MADE THE STRUCTURE OF IT! PLEASE ANSWER!!!!

Those are absolutely unbelievable and I can't believe you did them both in a week and a half. They look like they could spring to life any second. I love to make costumes and if I made something that looked even half this good I'd never let my kid take it off! Please post some more of your projects!

Oh wow!!! These are sooooo cool!!!! They look just like the movie, talk about detail and accuracy!! You could make costumes to sell/hire out if you ever got tired of your day job...and your kids look thrilled to bits. They'll never forget these costumes. Awesome job :D
