Where the Wild Things Are

Regular price $175.00

It frequently happens, that when someone looks at my horned crowns, they will reference Max, or Where the Wild Things Are, or just Sendak in general. And here's the thing; it wasn't intentional. Max's crown doesn't even have horns; he has a crown, the wild things have horns, memories blur, we get to horned crowns. But I don't mind, because Sendak was my hero, and making folks think of him is never a bad thing. So, years down the road, I finally made a deliberate tribute to one of my favorite monster makers in the history of ever.

This crown has horns, it also has curls (for the waves on Max's journey) and a little boat based on his, with his actual (unhorned) crown emblazoned on the sail. Will it help you discover a magical land populated by friendly monsters? You know what? It Probably will.

A number of years back, I saw a painting of Diana, in which she was wearing a crown that was also a set of horns. I loved it. Folks had been asking for tiaras and crowns for years, and all the sudden, I wanted to make them. So I began making them. That's the whole story.

These crowns are flexible. They can be bent in a little and be worn a bit forward to stand up more, or bent a little out and be worn more as a headband. They can even be coerced to fit around a hat, and they make fabulous hatbands! Though if your hat is far from the shape of your head, I don't recommend going back and forth- get one for your hat, another for your head (if it's a close fitting hat then nevermind, you can use one crown for both purposes!) Will fit pretty much all adult heads. They stay on quite well just by their own natural springiness, but we've also drilled holes at the end, just in case you want a ribbon or pins or other extra security (highly recommended if you will be upside down at any point while wearing them). Not intended as a toy for children- just as a toy for adults who may or may not be grown up. Your call.
