Homemade Wendy and Jack in the Box Costume
I had decided early on to go as JACK (from Jack in the Box restaurants) and my wife decided to stick with the fast food theme and go as WENDY (of course from Wendy's). We added the "baby" JANDY, to solidify the merger.
The JACK head was all paper mache. I used a big playground ball as the form and then deflated it. I wore it with the aid of an old baseball helmet that I had secured inside with expanding foam. I could see out of the mouth thanks to some dyed cheese cloth.
Wendy Costume was pretty simple, just found the outfit at a thrift store, made the name tag on the computer and modified a wig with a wire hanger to hold the curl.
Baby Jandy was made from an old doll, left over paint/paper mache, red yarn and some hot glue.
The whole Wendy and Jack in the Box Costume was a big hit. We even wore them in to the local Jack in the Box Restaurants & Wendy’s for some added KUDOS.

I wanted to make a Foreclosed Home costume for Halloween, but my mom explained that it could hurt someone's feelings; after all there are a lot of people in California who have recently lost their homes. So then she said, "Why don't you go as Jack?" I thought, OK, so how do I make a Homemade Jack in the Box Costume?
OK, so now for the cool part. I spent all night long taking pictures with people at 2 Jack in the Box restaurants, while I was trick or treating, and everyone thought I was too cool.
My favorite part of the night was that, when I went to the second Jack in the Box restaurant, the cheer leaders from my school were there. They didn't know it was me at first and wanted to take pictures with "Jack". Then they found out it was me and started giving me all kinds of hugs etc !
You know that they say, "mom's always right"!

We made this Jack in the box costume for my son about 5 years ago. We started off with a box. We painted it gold and then decoupaged (glued over) a printed picture of a Jack-in-the-Box. I drew the curtain and then I used star stickers to add effect. We found a gold rope and used it as trimming and then also used it as straps to hold the box on my sons shoulders.
We then bought a knob at home depot for the handle. I cut the red neck piece out of felt, bought some simple white gloves, and we already had the jester hat. We got raves about this costume!
I wanted my son to stand out for Halloween and the store costumes were just not doing it for me. Then one day while I was putting away the toys I came across a Jack-In-The-Box. What a perfect costume for my son Jack!.
I got out a box from moving recently and just started coloring on poster board copying the images on the actual Jack in the box. I found a used clown costume at a thrift store, altered it a little and made him a jester hat out of foam sheets.
This Homemade Jack In The Box Costume was all pretty easy!!
