Where To Wear The New, Expensive Where The Wild Things Are Clothing Line

Whole Foods

Of course there's a clothing line based on Where The Wild Things Are. Of course there is. Lisa from The Real Housewives Of Atlanta has a clothing line. Charlie Sheen has a clothing line. Rachel Bilson has a clothing line. And you know what they say: "If that girl from the OC who isn't Mischa Barton can do it, literally anyone can do it!"—They

And why shouldn't a children's movie about adorable monsters have a clothing line? Kids love dressing up like their nightmares. Witness the Twilight line for Hot Topic. But, unfortunately, the Where The Wild Things Are clothing line isn't for children. It's for adults who so identify with a children's book about adorable monsters, that they want to pay $300-$800 to wear the skins of said adorable monsters in public. A small, twee, immature, impossibly-irritating demographic to be sure. 

Still, sometimes all you need is a little context to see the versatility of ridiculously expensive furry monster wear for alleged grown-ups.  Turns out there are several scenarios where clothes from Opening Ceremony's Where The Wild Things Are line would look appropriate.

And, of course, you could wear it while standing around wondering where your life went wrong

Cause that's what pretty much everyone else who sees you in these expensive Halloween costumes will be thinking.
