This homemade costume for boys entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Shana, the 'Tow Mater' costume creator:

My 3 year old son dressed as Tow Mater from the Cars movies. We decided to go with the Mater costume because everybody wants to be Lighting McQueen. I made it from a large box I picked up from work, several cans of spray paint in a variety of colors and some packaging paper. I also used my Cricut to cut out letters and circles for details.

Sorry, just now getting back. I used a large box and cut it then wrapped packing paper around it. I painted it with several different colors tan, blue,&' brown of spray paint. I cut the letters out on my circuit then glued them on. I used a toy Tow Mater as reference to cut the box. I did use a lot of hot glue and tape which can't be seen.
