"And now," cried Max, "let the wild rumpus start!"
— Maurice Sendak

The story of Where the Wild Things Are takes place mainly in the land of the Wild Things. They are monstrous creatures who are as fearsome as fearsome can be but who Max rules over with bravery and a caring heart. As I frolicked through the forests around my cottage, pretending to be Max in his cape and crown, I was inspired by my adult playtime to don an outfit based on those fearsome monsters. I found my favourite animal print skirt I snagged from one of Modcloth's many amazing sales and paired it with this fantastic backless lace top. The lace on the back of the top felt like spots on a black leopard, shimmering in the light and silently fading into the background in the dark. Animal prints just make you feel wilder as you put them on. They add edge even on the softest face. Adding onto the textural prints of the outfit I through on some long dangly earrings which felt like a long fur mane around my head and finally found another great animal patterned pair of shoes to complete the wild and primal feel of the outfit. Max had his wolf suit and I have my imagination and Modcloth ;)
