DIY Wild Things Megapost

Published November 24, 2009 by Graham

A month after the premiere, people around the globe are still creating amazing homages to Where the Wild Things Are. We’ve received so many great emails in the past few weeks, we had to share a few of our favorites. Check out the parade of adorable costumes and art projects. These smiling wolf-suited kids are so sweet, I can already feel the diabetes setting in.

Spanish street artist Rodriguez Ledesma transformed a crumbling wall into a vision of Carol taking Max for a ride. Max Records sent us that fantastic photo of a jack-o-lantern– carved by his social studies teacher. Stop-motion animator Jessica Bayliss‘ larger than life Carol costume is one of the most brilliantly detailed we’ve seen yet. And cartoonist Steven Weissman’s sketches of the Wild Things playing chess and Rampage (the arcade classic) are positively inspired.

Last but not least, don’t miss this clip of rad pint-sized skater George Karvounis tearing up the skate park in a Max costume!

Oh hey, who’s cooking crawfish? NO ONE! That ain’t no sink full of crustaceans, its a sink full of costume “hair” made from twine and dyed with red and brown dye for the ultimate wild things costume experience. Arrivings slightly too late for Halloween (but useful nonetheless) is the definitive How To Make a Wild Things Costume tutorial, courtesy of Tim.

All you need ares some hula hoops, tape, mesh, dye, hot-glue, fur, foam, wire, plastic tubing, paper mache, glue, and an insane attention to detail.

Seriously. Insane.

Thank You

Lucy and Bart

Picture 2

Lucy and Bart is a collaboration between Lucy McRae and Bart Hess, both Netherlands-dwellers with a shared interest in pushing the boundaries of art, fashion, and that nebulous area where the two meet.

McRae was trained as a classical ballerina and architect, so her interest in the human body is one with a precedent. Hess, for his part, maintains that he’s a better storyteller with visuals than with words, and has a fascination with robotics and imaginary animals. Together, the two “work in a primitive and limitless way creating future human shapes, blindly discovering low – tech prosthetic ways for human enhancement.”

Their manipulations of the human form (via costume and digital voodoo) are eerie and beautiful in equal doses. Also occasionally grotesque––but never less than perfectly executed.
