This homemade costume for boys entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from John, the 'Garbage Truck' costume creator:

My son wanted to be a garbage truck. So we set off to create it. I browsed the web and came across http://bixdog7.blogspot.com/2007/10/garbage-truck-costume-how-to.html. That was the start and had some great info. After lots of cardboard and hot glue it started to take shape. We added different thickness cardboard for the bumper. Created some clever signage. Also added the container in the back so he can store the candy. We installed tap lights from big lots for the headlights and a rear tail light that flashes in multiple sequences.
