making a truck costume

Halloween is done and dusted for another year. But I know next year there will be a new crop of mums & dads making vehicle costumes out of cardboard boxes and so I put together some notes on ours. It's definitely easier to figure out homemade costumes in this blogging age — we quickly looked at a handful of truck costumes before making our yellow tractor trailer costume and it definitely sped it up.

One thing we did which turned out to be really fun (and useful and safety-ish) was adding headlights, reflectors and headlights. We did the whole thing very cheaply and fairly quickly.

My notes are here. I've put a few more pictures after the jump. As usual Auggie looks very serious while holding still and all the smiling shots are super blurry ^_^
