From my little WILD THINGS!
Oh this little Wild Thing doesn't look very happy with me at all. I'm sure the droopy horns don't help.
I carved matching pumpkins. Shelby is being good by not eating them. Some of you may recognize the pumpkin on the right as the same monster that Shelby is dressed as. As for the one on the left, he's also inspired by a Wild Thing, but..well..anyway, I had 2 pumpkins so I figured I'd best carve them both.
Our photo shoot was wild as well. Keeping Vin and Shelby in the same photo proved impossible until I sat them down with a piece of cheese bread.
Mmm. Cheese bread.
Shelby stalks the cheese bread.
And her persistence pays off! Yum!
And for those of you who missed out on previous years costumes, Here's links!

Omg, I love the costumes this year! Vin has gotten so big and he's walking so well! So cute:D. Shelby doesn't look too amused but it is probably cause of the horns, Have a great day!

Please say you'll post a link to your pattern!

This year, I didn't make my own pattern, but modified an existing one. I used simplicity 2839.
I used the lion costume as the base, and added the horns from the cow costume.
I cut a little template for the scales and cut a bunch of them out of grey felt.
