Our family has always made our own costumes from scratch. I always tell my kids to always “think out-of-the-box” no pun intended. This year we got a new TV, so I decided to recycle the box and make a costume.
Costume is made up an old television box painted red, with metallic paint and had painted lettering. Rubbermaid containers bolted on that actually moved side to side for the knobs. Pretty simple costume, got tons of reactions from adults, unfortunately most children had no idea what it was and thought it was a game console or some vintage TV.
