Cool Optimus Prime Costume

Warning: This took some time constructing.
Also the taxi I called would not pick me up as I was unable to get in the car in costume – put the body on once you get there.

I made this Optimus Prime Costume on a budget so it’s entirely made from recycled cardboard and a heap of test paint. All measurements were guestimates. I printed the Transformer logo and made a stencil for the shoulders. You will need to buy a lot of tape to a) hold it together and b) for the outlines to make it look more robotic..
Unfortunately I was unable to complete the helmet in time. I recommend metallic silver tights. I am wearing plan grey ones.

This costume does not transform.
