Let the Wild Rumpus Begin!

Earlier in the week I came across this tutorial of a Max hat and I knew I HAD to make it! Since I was a child, I have loved Where the Wild Things Are and I have been super excited for the movie to come out. Just the music alone on the previews was amazing, I couldn't imagine how good the movie was going to be.

Last night at around 8 p.m. I began making the hat, I wanted to make sure it would be ready by Friday so I could wear it to the watch the movie. All week long I had checked the local theater's schedule, and it said there wasn't going to be any midnight showings of Where the Wild Things Are but at around 10:30p.m. Daren checked again, and of course, they barely posted that there would be a midnight showing!! I sewed as quickly as I could and at 11:20 I was done. We hurried and changed, and drove down to the theater.

The theater was packed, but we found good seats. Everyone was complimenting me on my hat, haha. As the theater got dark, and the music began to play, a man in the audience yelled "LET THE WILD RUMPUS BEGIN!!" and everyone cheered! I was happy to be around other people who were just as excited as me! The movie was really good, it had parts that made you laugh, and parts that could make you cry. The character's were adorable, the costumes for the monsters were really impressive.

Well! Here is my outfit for today! :)

Outfit Details
Where the Wild Thing's Are Shirt - Urban Outfitters
Jeans - Forever 21
Hat - Made by yours truly haha
Shoes - Thrifted

Can you believe these shoes?! They are brand new and only cost $1! I found them yesterday at a new thrift store Daren and I found. It is in an old lumber warehouse, and it is huge. Besides the shoes, I also got a handful of vintage sewing patterns.


  1. I absolutely cannot wait to see this movie, and that hat is adorable, I'm definitely going to try to make it! =D

    Love the outfit!

  2. Such a cute hat! I wish I had gone to see the movie when it came out last night. Was the rest of the music good in the movie? I love the one they play with the trailer by the arcade fire, hoping the soundtrack follows the same feel.

  3. Oh how cute! I love that t-shirt:)
    I'm so out of luck, the movie doesnt run in Norwegian theatres, and when I tryed to buy the t-shirt at Urban Outfitters they didnt ship to Norway eighter:(
