wild things for halloween

Inspired by the new movie coming out, Where the Wild Things Are, I thought I'd share these masks.

I made these for our Halloween costumes about ten years ago. It was the first time my daughter "trick or treated". She was only two years old at the time and I sewed her a Max costume as well. At the time I thought it was very unique and cool, but I think the neighbors thought we were the clown posse....

I sculpted clay heads of our own faces, then paper mache'd over them. It was really fun and challenging to get those "just right" Sendak expressions. They were lined with felt for comfort...
