DIY Toddler Robot Costume with Blinking Lights
The best thing about this costume was that all I had to buy was the Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil, Flexible Dryer Vent Hose, Silver Duct Tape and Led lights! Everything else in the costume were found items at home, like the empty tuna can “ears”, the empty egg carton for the front panel and empty pull-up and diaper boxes for the head and the body of the costume. He was able to wear a simple grey sweatsuit and even his jacket in the costume and we covered his shoes with aluminum foil for the added effect! (Of course after a few house the Aluminum started tearing off)
He got such a good response and won 1st place at trunk-or-treat and in my jobs costume contest! The best feature was the battery operated LED lights which were blinking randomly on the front panel. Complete strangers were taking his picture all Halloween night!
