At our son Shane's school's Halloween Parade last year, he saw that a little boy was a television and has had it in his mind that he, too, wanted to be a television for Halloween 2010. I was surprised as Halloween was drawing closer this year that he still wanted to be a television (I thought for sure, as most six-year-olds do, he would have changed his mind - but he hadn't!). So a week before Halloween, I began construction of his homemade television child Halloween costume.

I made a few trips to both A.C. Moore and Michaels and bought my supplies. I had been working ideas back-and-forth in my head, too, before actually beginning the creation process so I would know where I wanted to start and end in the process. I bought foam board, foam sheets, black decorative tape, and several other items to make the television complete. The process took about six hours (with many stops to take photos, of course) I think the finished product turned out great - and more importantly, it put a smile on our son's face :)

Calculator Costume 1

My son loves calculators and when Halloween was coming up a few years ago we told him he could be anything he wanted to be. Of course he wanted to be a calculator. I knew it would take a little work but it wasn't so difficult.

We used a box and cut it down to size and fit. Then we painted the box gray and finished the edges with black duct tape. I picked up reflective numbers at Home Depot and used a silver sharpie on black construction paper for the display screen and function keys.

Everyone knew right away what he was and he was so very proud of his calculator costume. The only trouble he had was being able to put candy in his candy bag with one hand while holding the bag with other. He loved this costume so much we had to talk him out of being a calculator the following year.

That's a riot - my son declared the same thing this year, so we made our own as well. We used black foam core for the front and back, and he'll wear it like a sandwich board over his shoulders. We'll see how it goes tonight!

Thanks for the idea!! :)

I'm 13 and me and my friends chose to opt out of your scandalous average teen costumes, and we're all being nerdy things. I'm going to be a calculator, my friend is going to be a book, and my other friends are being a nerd, and a Rubik cube! I will let you know how this goes :) I'm doing mine based off this!

Coolest Homemade Television Costume 1

This is a televison costume I made for my 9 year old son. We used a large box that had a screen sized hole in the front for his face, as if he was the picture on that channel. The box had arm holes and rested over his head. It came complete with a huge remote control, tivo, antennas, and photo frames on the top...

He won lots of contests and was the talk of the neighborhood!

My daughter Isabelle wanted a costume no one else would have... something unique. I came up with the idea and my husband made it for her. He did a fantastic job I think!
