My son wanted to be BO DUKE from Dukes of Hazzard. I knew people might not recognize him so I decided to have him "drive" the General Lee.

I used 3 cardboard boxes (2 whole & 1 cut up for the middle with the remaining pieces used for the window/roof). I used 2 wrapping paper rolls for the front bumper. About 3 coats of regular orange paint and black spray paint. Spray paint would be preferred but I couldn't find orange spray-paint.

The 01/flag/wheels were photocopied off computer and blown up in color at a office supply store. Everything was duct taped together with the exception of the suspenders and bumper which were zip tied.

I purchased a $10 voice recorder from Radio Shack and recorded the "rebel horn" off the computer. Holes were cut on the inside of the box for the button/speaker... this was also just duct taped. And I suggest buying name brand duct tape... I started out with the good stuff... ended with a knock off brand and you could tell a difference with the holding power.

This General Lee Dukes of Hazzard Costume Car was a LOT of work but all the rave reviews while trick or treating made it worth while. Plus now my son wants to save it and have a Dukes birthday party.

I had lots of fun with this Gene Simmons Costume. I work in Seasonal Dept in Big Box store, so it makes dressing up for Halloween even better!!

I purchased pants, had my top bought material to make bat-wings, used silver tape and cutout all of the studs for my pants, boot tops etc., and sweatbands to attach my wings to my arms.

No pics of my boots - I also purchased and added teeth to with silver tape from local hardware store. Searched around for appropriate gloves, jewelry, etc. Only wish I had other people willing to dress up as the others in the band.
