Brief Description:

This was my 6 yr old Dantes costume for this year. It is a transforming Optimus Prime. It's constructed of different sized boxes, duct tape and spray paint. My son loved it and so did everyone else. The best part was that he would transform into a truck and we would ring the doorbell, when they answered my son transformed and yelled, Truck or Treat!" It can be viewed online at /www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHs0MUiTYXQ Thanks and Enjoy!

Materials:

7 various cardboard boxes, box cutters, duct tape, hot glue, spray paint and a hand me down character costume suit from a friend.

Time to Create:

12 hours in total. 1-3 hours at a time.
Contest Photo Tips and Guidelines:
  • Avoid clutter. Keep the background simple -- your gingerbread house or holiday cookie is the star!
  • Daytime, natural light is best. If your area is bright enough, try taking the photo without the flash.
  • Upload a horizontal photo. If you crop the image on your computer, make sure you keep a landscape 4:3 aspect ratio.
  • For best results, make your image 1200x900 (or "save for web").
  • With a digital camera, you can take as many photos as possible and choose the best one. Have fun!
