Homemade Geico Money Halloween Costume

This was a Homemade Geico Money Halloween Costume I wore to a Halloween party this year where it was a major hit.

I spray-painted a box that I got at a local UPS store. Its dimensions were perfect; it is called the "guitar box" in case you go and look for one at UPS. Firstly, I used bright green spray paint, then a lighter green to make the lines look like a stack. I then made some $5 bills and glued them to the top of the box.

For the eyes, I used two large white cardboard cake holders, found at a local cake store, and glued circles cut out of black poster board to the middle of the white cake holders. I then cut small slits on the top of the box, after the paint had dried, and glue-gunned the eyes on to the top of the box. Behind the eyes, there is a hole for my head, so the costume covers from head to about mid waist.

I also carried an iPod with speakers and played the Geico music "I always feel like somebody's watching me". People laughed so much and took many pictures of me. The costume was so easy and cheap to make.

Homemade Geico Money Costume

My son William, age 6, has been infatuated with The Money icon from Geico for about a year. He went to the Baltimore Boat Show last Fall and met Ms. Geico who signed a poster for him. He fell in love with Geico at that time and has been obsessed with it ever since. He asked us at that time if he could be The Money guy for Halloween.

My Mother-in-law and husband have been working on the Homemade Geico Money Costume now for about a month. They used Styrofoam for the body, covering it with paper and painting it to look like the $5 bills. They used empty white clocks with black painted free floating CD disks for the eyes. A hole in the middle allows my son's head to come up through the costume which sits on his shoulders.

As you can see it is a very realistic costume. My son, William loves his homemade Geico costume.

Jennifer-
This costume is great! Can you ask your husband how they made the Styrofoam body?

Thanks!

Coolest Homemade Money You Could Be Saving With Geico Costume 7

Homemade Money You Could Be Saving With Geico Costume

Homemade Money You Could Be Saving With Geico Costume

After spending a month working on this Homemade Money You Could Be Saving With Geico Costume, downloading the music and getting speakers to play the song, I was set with my box of money.

I recycled a bunch of my co-workers newspapers into the front, back and sides of a large cardboard box and stapled them down. Then I took a $5 bill I found online, blew it up and printed it on two pieces of paper. Then I took blue and white felt for the band that is holding the money together. And ta-da! Hope you enjoy!

I used a cardboard box painted green and cut on edges to resemble money to make this Homemade Geico Money Costume. Added foam balls for eyes and a blue and white sheet of paper as a money strap.

We inserted two speakers into the foam eyeballs and connected to an iPod nano. We downloaded the "somebodys watching me" song from the commercial and played it out loud.

Very cute and easy to make.

I was wondering if you knew where I can get speakers.. did you use spray paint to paint and how did you get into it, was there a round cut in the middle?

Love it!
by: Susan

LOVE it! My daughter is so excited to try to make this. How did you cut the edges on the box? and what type of box did you use to get that shape?

is she wearing it?
by: Anonymous

Is she wearing it like a skirt, and if so how did you make it? Or is she just holding it? It's so cute.

so cute
by: Anonymous

is it made into a skirt, and how?

How its made
by: Yvette

No, its not a skirt. Just a med size rectangular box. We cut the edges with a knife and then folded them back a little. She is holding it up with her hands here because we have not made the straps to hold it on yet. I plan to just use some duct tape and hold it up like suspenders.

Hope that helps.
