Introduction: Where the Wild Things Are KW and Carol

About: My name is Kadijah and I love to create designs. I have no education or job experience but I just love creating. Holidays are very special to me because it gives me a chance to put my imagination to work. I ...

 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!!!!

    These are awesome ! Very talented . I love them !

    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

    can you please make an instructable

    These are so incredible!! Your kids are so lucky to have a mom who makes such great costumes! I am amazed that you made these yourself; they make store bought costumes look so sad in comparison.

    Too cool for school..... Stunning!

    It's amazing how creative you can be when your children inspire you.

    Unbelievable! You definitely get my vote for costume of the century and your children are absolutely adorable! Keep up the great work, its important we show our children there's more value in make then buy.

    Thanks! Justin

    FANTASTIC!! Those adorable kids are so happy! The cutie pie smiles alone would win me over, but those costumes could make anyone smile that much!

    Well done! So jealous :oD

    Those kids must've been the happiest kids in the world that day! The costumes are incredible!

    Amazing! You could easily do costumes and props for stage productions!

    These costumes are CRAZY good. If you haven't already gone pro, you should think about it.

    those are some pretty happy kids!
