It’s here! I finished the second Where The Wild Things Are tutorial. Though there are plenty of variations of Max, not many have been done for this one, Bernard, so hopefully you enjoy this DIY!
As I mentioned in the Max tutorial, the bison-looking* wild thing is named Bernard. Turns out the author of Where The Wild Things Are, Maurice Sendak, named the wild things after his relatives, and one of them was Bernard. Others were Tzippy, Moishe, Aaron, and Emile. Fun fact, eh?
Wild things (n): boisterous children; “vilde chaya”, a Yiddish expression meaning “wild animals”.
These are my wild things, Mr. R. and Mr. A. They bring joy to my soul and try my patience daily. When I read The Wild Things to them, I can’t help but think of what a relation there is between them and the characters in the book! Back in June (seriously, dressing up for Halloween is amazing, why would you not think about it half the year long?) when I started brainstorming costume ideas I couldn’t help but think of this one for them, and the boys accepted it, so here we are!
Yesterday was Cow Appreciation Day, AKA “Dress Like A Cow To Get Free Food At Chick-Fil-A Day!”It happens once a year in the beginning of July. We’ve celebrated the beauty of cows for the past six years, ever since I was pregnant with Mr. R, and we don’t plan to stop anytime soon!
Do you want a simple, easy to make costume that doesn’t fall apart, yet gets the job done and gets you free food on this glorious day? We’ve got you covered.
Halloween is huge for me. I love sewing costumes and would probably do it every day if I had no other obligations. In fact, the whole reason I wanted to learn to sew is so I could make costumes! Each year I make our costumes from scratch, and I loved being able to do it this year as well.
