Where the Wild Things Are Kids Costumes

Mystical Costumes For the Wild Thing in Your Life

Let the wild rumpus begin! Parents and lil ones alike are starting to countdown to one of the most eagerly anticipated kiddie flicks of the year — Where the Wild Things Are! The October 16th launch coincides with Halloween guaranteeing many a Max and monsters pounding the pavements for the spooky holiday.

The characters from Maurice Sendak's classic tale are sure to be one of the most popular costumes of the year. Moms with a knack for sewing are dusting off their machines to create the perfect Max, complete with a pajama-like costume and crown, or the yellow-eyed monsters that proclaim Max their ruler. For mums without the seamstress talent or time, the stores are expecting you. We've scoured the web and rounded up some of the most authentic looking costumes available. Be prepared for sticker shock as looking authentic doesn't come cheap!

This is the Max costume I made for my son for Purim this year (kinda like Jewish Halloween). I definitely understand high sticker prices because it was a lot of work!

This is my Son's favorite book, so I'm really excited for him to be Max for Halloween. I actually ordered his Wolf Suit from one of the sellers on this list - the $70.00 suit on etsy by Loveseptember. I ordered it from her a few weeks ago so it'll be here soon. Can't wait!

I dont have kids but I can not wait until this movie comes out :) I remember that Christina Aguilera had her son Max's first birthday around "Where the Wild Things Are" (I believe that is the origin of his name too) But maybe if I have a boy, he can run around in a little hoodie pair of white pajamas :)
