Amazing Homemade Halloween - Where the Wild Things Are

Wow, so I'm crafting a little bit of our Halloween costumes this year - my husband and I are going as Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett (you can see the process here and here... I'll try to post more pictures tonight). I've made Sweeney's vest and razor, partially made Mrs. Lovett's skirt, made a stuffed rolling pin and cannibalized an old top to turn into hers. Plus I've dyed a LOT of stuff. I think this is pretty crafty. But that's nothing - I mean, nothing, compared to these utterly amazing and fantastic papier mache Where the Wild Things Are masks made by Craftster sjeanette.

She says she used a papier mache base, then painted them with acrylics and used all kind of various things for the details of their faces. And lots of hot glue, which I can totally relate to. Check out her post (link above) on Craftster and see individual pictures of each monster - they're really wonderful. Link

Amazing! It makes me feel bad for being a Renaissance lady (again!) this year. (Hey, I paid $200 for the damned outfit at a Renaissance fair two years ago, and I am going to get some use out of it! I'm in college, $200 is a lot of money to me, lol.) Well, to be fair, the costume is probably more accurate to the late Middle Ages, but meh, not like the kids I'll be giving candy to will care.

I love what you and your hubby are doing as well. It makes me wish my boy toy wasn't halfway across the country so we could have matching homemade costumes as well.
