I made this Optimus Prime costume in 20 hrs over 25 days out of cardboard, foam board, duct tape, hot glue, rubber and plastic – and lots and lots of spray paint! I put blood (literally), sweat, and a little tears into this project. Everyone thought I was crazy when I started but when it was complete everyone was so impressed.

I know what you’re thinking…. You’re over 21, you’re going to parties… How do you drink or move in this thing?  I thought of everything. I even created a drinking straw that went through the sleeve of my shirt and attached to the inside of my mask. Every person who saw this costume for the first time was jaw-dropped! I have taken over 150 selfies with strangers in this costume. I worked very hard on it and am very proud of my accomplishment.
