    I’ve always wanted to do this for my son. So cute and a they did such a great job. I’m sure come next Halloween, the stores will most certainly be carrying this costume.

  8. I went as Max my senior year of highschool back in 2007. I won a $5 gift certificate to Dunkin Donuts in our costume contest.

    Spike any chance we could get something like this of that quality going? Would be beyond nice to have something as nice for children this & future Halloweens.

    I would love it if I could buy a dupilcate costume from you…I have a little Max and he’s 2 now, perfect for Halloween fun! Please contact me with price…Thank you sooo much, you are brilliant!

    Hi Sasha-
    I’m so glad you like the costume! But it was a ton of work to make, I only made one, and my son still wears it. Good luck with your search though- you may want to try alchemy on etsy.

    This is the best Max costume I have seen!! Is there a pattern for it? I would love to make it for my grandson!

  14. Kate says:

    Kim- Sorry I didn’t see this before Halloween, but if anyone comes across this in the future the base of the costume was from Kwik Sew Pattern 3527 (a pattern for footed pajamas) and I just added things to that.
