My son loved Transformers, especially Optimus Prime! So, we decided to attempt making an Optimus Prime Transformer homemade Halloween costume. My wife used numerous boxes, paper towel rolls, spray paint, an old hard hat, LED touch lights, duct tape, patience and tons of hot glue to hold it all together. This costume took about a week all together to finish. Most of the time was spent waiting for the many coats of paint to dry and finding the right size boxes. We also found an old c.b. and attached it to the inside of the box. The box was a little heavy on the top of his head so she glued a sponge to the inside top of the box to give it some cushion.
He loved it!
