Farmer and his Tractor Costume
Working the land
|Costume type:||Costumes for Boys|
This homemade costume for boys entered our 2019 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Kristen, the 'Farmer and his Tractor' costume creator:
Samson is wearing the costume. He told us he wanted to be a farmer for Halloween and all farmers need a tractor so we set to make him a tractor. We found a tractor online as inspiration as well as his grandpaís 16 restored John Deer tractors. We used cardboard boxes from Costco and Amazon as the base. The wheels were from a friends donated stroller. We bought yellow duct tape and John Deere decals for $8. Grandpa John, as a lifelong John Deere owner had John Deere green paint for us to paint. The wheels were made of card board and paper plates painted to look like John Deere tractor wheels. We secured the tractor to Samsonís wheelchair using bungee cords we had in our house. The best part about this costume is Grandpa John helped Samsonís mom build the tractor in his workshop with all his tractors as inspiration. He enjoyed building The tractor because he knew Samson would have a blast showing off his tractor.
