This homemade costume for boys entered our 2017 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Natalie, the 'CJ the DJ and his Pioneer Speakers' costume creator:

Hello! CJ, our ten year son, was a DJ for Halloween. Most recently, he campaigned for a student council position and we used the slogan, "You don't need a DJ, you need to vote for CJ".
Upon reflecting on this, his dad and I decided to go with the DJ theme for Halloween.

We started by selecting an Adidas jogging suit, Kangol hat, headphones, and bulky gold chain, however, we wanted his DJ booth to be the highlight of his costume.

To construct the booth, I, his mom, covered a moving box in a black, plastic table cover. To complete the turn table, I purchased a pie tin and a printed picture of a record. I then used a wire brush and cut off the bristles for the tone arm and stylus. I connected these to the DJ booth using a hot glue gun. Then, I used alumininum tea light candles, removed the candles, and turned them upside down for the amplifier and power buttons. I printed pictures of amplifiers and covered the pictures to give the table a 3-D effect. I purchased a mini disco ball and cordless microphone and used velcro tape to attach them to the booth. I used lettering stickers and DJ style pictures to design the front of the booth. All of the items for the booth came from a local dollar store and store where items are below $5. Overall, I was able to construct the DJ booth for roughly $15.

I then decided that a DJ booth is not complete without speakers. Therefore, I constructed speakers for me and his dad's costumes. We decided to wear all black and therefore, I opted on creating black speakers. I bought a foam poster board and more pie tins. I traced the pie tins and cut two circles out of the poster board. Then, using my hot glue gun, I glued the pie tins inside the circles. I also used black construction paper for the border and middle parts of the speaker. I found a Pioneer speaker label online and glued the label to the speaker. Both my husband and I carried a wireless speaker and we played music at each of the Halloween festivities that we attended.

It cost us roughly $2 to complete the speakers. We had a great time playing the part as a family!

CJ the DJ's costume was genius and unique; the most creative costume I saw on Halloween. The fact that they came up with a theme and it was homemade was awesome and you never would have known with all the detail. There was a lot of LOVE and work put into the costumes. CJ and his parents played the part to the hilt. Looking forward to 2018.
