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.
