This homemade costume for boys entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Mason, the 'Awesome Bot' costume creator:

Mason is Awesome Bot!
We spent months brainstorming this one! Our 4 year old talked about being a robot for quite a while, so we decided to make it happen. We started with some used hockey pads and shin guards, used little felt pads (for under appliances) as rivets, and spraypainted them all a shiny silver. Toilet paper tubes turned into arm bands, and were covered with paints, duct tape, and buttons from an old playstation remote. There is a "power level" panel on the chest pad, made from some battery operated christmas lights, cardboard, and lots of hot glue - That really lights up. Also a robot belt made of a fabric strip, cardboard, more lights, and more of that magic glue. (This set blinks!) He also has a red finger light - every robot needs a laser! To top if off, we have a dress up astronaut helmet with rivets, and two dollar store tap lights that have been painted. He was a hit at preschool, and is really excited to take it trick or treating in the dark! Happy Halloween!
