We considered buying costumes but they were expensive and surprisingly hard to find. So my husband had the great idea that was to make my son’s costume this year the REDBOX. At first I thought that it would not be good enough and would not have enough detail to it. But I can’t tell you how much fun we had making this costume, it was super easy therefore my son and his father did.
It was really nothing to it. We Googled all the images and printed them out after painting a box (that we bought from Walmart for about $2. and spray painted for about $1.50) red. We made the holes for head and arms. My son glued the pieces in the correct spots. Also If you go to any Redbox they allow you to purchase cases for $1.00 so we bought a couple to import them onto the costume to make it just a little more realistic.
