This Plastic Toy Soldier Costume was really easy. I took some old clothes out of my closet and spray painted them with army green spray paint… shoes, hat, socks, shirt, etc. I found the binoculars and gun at the $1 store and spray painted them too. My face I covered in a very thick layer of green face paint and spray painted my hair with green spray hair dye.

Anyone can make this Plastic Toy Soldier Costume, it’s that simple. The cleverness lies in the idea itself. I ended up coming in 4th place in a pretty large costume contest which was a nice bonus!

Mr. Potato Head was my son’s costume :).
