We all love so much the monsters in Where the Wild Things are and, since my twin daughter’s really wanted to be two of them, I made these Homemade Where the Wild Things are Costumes.

I started out with cardboard, old fur coats, fur remnants, a leopard costume from years ago, animal house slippers and my imagination. I have no experience or education in design or sewing but it came out great. It took about 1 week to do the first costume headpiece and about 3-4 days for the second headpiece.

My daughters were very pleased with and proud of their costumes and so was I. Everywhere we went, we were stopped and crowds of people wanted to take pictures. No one believed that these were homemade so I was very flattered by the compliment. We tried to enter contests, but the area we live in seems to cater only for adult contests. We are so pleased to have found out information online about children’s contests. Thank you so much for this opportunity.
