Coolest Rock’em Sock’em Robots DIY Couple Halloween Costume Idea

Mattel recently came out with a reproduction of the 1964 version of this toy & my boys love playing with it as much as my husband & I did when we were kids. We all agreed the Rock’em Sock’em Robots DIY couple Halloween costume idea would be great for Halloween! I actually got some ideas from this website & came up with my plan…

I worked on them almost every night for about 3 mos. They’re made of lots of cardboard & duct tape. The shoulders, elbows & knees are all separate pieces so the boys were able to move freely. There’s rope & washers connecting each joint. The rivets are ping pong balls cut in half. I studied each section & made patterns from brown paper bags. The hardest part was cutting the cardboard but, the most time-consuming was the taping. My husband made the “ring” out of wood, pvc pipes, yellow paint & rope. He made that in 2 days!

This Rock’em Sock’em Robots DIY couple Halloween costume idea was definitely a lot of hard work but it payed-off because we were a big hit in our town’s 73rd Halloween Parade! Enjoy!
