Our four year old son Matthew loves old cars. His Papa owns two antique cars, and Matthew loves working on them and riding in them… so for Halloween, there was no talking him out of his idea to go as Papa’s Model T.
The homemade Model T Car Halloween costume is made from cardboard boxes, adhesives, duct tape, and poster board. Glow sticks make the headlights shine, and a homemade “candy fuel” gas can collects the Halloween candy.
The shoulder straps are pieces of seat belt strapping. The spare tire on the back has a personalized ‘Matthew’ license plate.
Construction of the homemade Model T Car Halloween costume took several hours spread over a little less than 2 weeks. The car costume’s dimensions very closely match those of the actual car. This costume was a big hit in the neighborhood this year, and it will be displayed next fall at the Old Car Festival next to the real Model T.
