My boyfriend is totally in love with the Transformer movies, and so I decided this year I would make a homemade Bumblebee Transformer costume. A lot of people doubted that it would actually transform and look cool, but I did it. It took me a lot of cardboard, glue sticks, duct tape, and THE DOLLAR TREE!

I started with the top of the car, and worked my way to the front, and lastly I did the doors (using the hard poster board). For the headlights I used flashlights, and smaller book lights. When standing up, it looks like a transformer, especially with the mask (that I did buy) and when you lay down flat on the ground it is a CAR!!! A CHEVY CAMARO! It looks a lot like one, I had to model it after the pictures on the internet.

The total cost was around 75 dollars, because of the cardboard slabs I had to buy, the posterboard for the flaps, the wheels were made of pans, glitter, glue, tape and mask. For the "windows" - I painted them black, but put a clear wrapping paper over it, to give it a sort of shine.

Everyone thought my Bumblebee Transformer Costume was the coolest thing ever, and I was so proud of it because it took a lot of hard work. It is a two piece costume, one is strapped to the back, and the other just comes over the head, where you can hold onto the flashlights for support.

I dont really have any instructions for it, i took a box and made the top part of the car and cut a hole for my head and left the back open so i could transform and put holes for the flashlights
the back part is just cardboard formed like the back end of a car.. the back of it is strapped around my back and arms, like a booksack would be.. so when u lay down it connects.

Here is my attempt at the Homemade BumbleBee Transformers Costume. The suit is made for my little girl who is 4. This build took roughly 30 hours and I'm very glad its finished. Well almost, I have to draw an Autobot symbol on the head.

Materials needed are as follows:
1) Cardboard for templates
2) Lots of packing tape
3) Metal Flashing Tin
4) Rivet Gun and Rivets
5) Can of yellow, black and silver spray paint
6) 2 Metal tubes
7) 4 feet of nylon rope
8) Velcro straps
9) Bubble wrap for padding
10) Hot Glue gun
11) A child with mucho patience

Cost was around $120.00 without labor.

I began, cutting cardboard shapes roughly to fit my little girl. After a couple of days of cutting begging my four year old to stand still while I placed all this ridiculous cardboard on her, we had a template. I then used the cardboard as a template for the tin. After many evenings of cutting, bending, riveting and painting we had ourselves a BumbleBee suit.

I hope you enjoy it.

Homemade Transforming Bumblebee Transformer Costume

I was a Transformer this Halloween and this costume took me a week and a half to make! It has working headlights, and when I bend down to the ground I can actually turn into a car. I had to wear knee pads all night because I transformed for people so many times. The cops actually stopped me outside of the bar so they could take a video of me doing it. Believe it or not this Transforming Bumblebee Transformer Costume lasted me the whole night. Let's just say a lot of duct tape reinforcement! I've never had such a great time on Halloween, thanks for the consideration.

Here is my son Ayden in his Transformer Bumblebee costume.

His costume is made of all camping bed form, tons of hot glue and paint. I had used different references form online pictures to get the look that I wanted.

Once all together I had painted and added Velcro to hold it together too. The final look can out cool.
