I originally wanted to use a refrigerator box for this Halloween but couldn’t find one in time so made a Homemade Outhouse Costume. I used a large flattened box, cut it and used packing/duct tape to get it to stay together. My favourite tool was a utility knife. It helped make the moon holes and the door.
I painted the entire thing brown and yellow for the moon. The handle was made with a couple of pipe cleaners poked through the door. Hanging on the handle is a sign that has a good outhouse quote: If you sprinkle when you tinkle, be a sweetie and wipe the seatee! The fake legs were made of pantyhose stuffed with shirts and a pair of shorts pinned to the bottom. I taped an edging of cardboard on the inside at about where I wanted my waist to be.
Another piece of cardboard was slit around the edges that I stepped through and as I pulled it up it would stop at the edges taped inside and I would tuck it into a belt to hold the whole thing up. A taped, black garbage bag hides my real legs underneath. Make sure to wear a longer shirt to make it seem like you have no pants on.
Just add a clothes peg, newspaper and a roll of toilet paper! I even did line dancing in this one! Cost : $10
My husband and I decided to make a Homemade Port-A-Buzz Costume because his nickname is Buzz with all the friends we hang out with, and he was the construction guy using it. We like to do couple costumes so I had a shirt made so that I went as the maintenance person and carried a plunger with toilet paper.
We took a large box and cut the front into a door. We painted the entire box blue and wrote Port-A-Buzz on the front and back and wrote graffiti on the inside.
We bought a cheap toilet paper holder and door handle at a local store and screwed in onto the box. We took another smaller box, painted it blue, and put it inside with the pant legs and boots with sheets and hanger wires in them to keep them in place. He held a newspaper so you couldn't see the gap where he was standing.
It took about 2 hours to make and total cost for both of us was about $30 (the tee shirt cost the most!).
To match the potty humor of my son, we decided to create the costume that fits his humor. We created a homemade porta potty costume that came with sound effects. When the door was opened to the outhouse, the loud sound of gas was passed all with a remote push of the button from my son (just what every boy wants). We created the porta potty with a wood frame which we then covered with cardboard. We then found contact paper that looked like wood grain. We drew black lines on the contact paper. Inside, we plastered his legs to make it more realistic and proportion to his size. The hanging toilet paper and the moon cut out of the door was an added touch.
We put wheels on the bottom to make it easier for him to get around so he wouldn't have to lift the whole costume while walking. There were also handles inside that he could hold onto if needed.

This is my Honey Bucket Port-a-Potty Costume for Halloween! It's made to look like a honey bucket worker carrying a honey bucket w/ a guy using it on the inside. The honey bucket worker is fake w/ my real legs below and my head, upper body and arms are the guy on the inside of the honey bucket w/ fake legs and boots.
This Honey Bucket Port-a-Potty Costume took me three whole days to make and $50 worth of blue & white duct tape :) thanks for looking!
Make Your Own Outhouse Costume cheap easy with a large cardboard box, twine brown paint, half roll of toilet paper and a large black marker. I wrote different types a graffiti and toilet humor on the outside. Cut out a moon on the door. I wore scruffy slippers and a big pair of flannel pajama pants over my clothes, use a shower stool, or even a 5 gallon bucket to sit on.
