Garbage Man with Truck Costume
Garbage man in training
|Costume type:||Costumes for Boys|
This homemade costume for boys entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Stacy, the 'Garbage Man with Truck' costume creator:
Brayden is our Garbage Man. He repeatedly said he wanted to be a garbage man. I couldn't locate a costume anywhere so had to resort to a template that I found online. It started with 4x4 sheets of cardboard. It's held together primarily with hot glue and some duct tape. There are many coats of paint on the exterior with batting lining the hole where he stands, Velcro straps, reflective tape, reflectors, styrofoam wheels painted black, medicine top bottles for rims, working head lights and tail lights and a mini dumpster on top of the cab for candy. We adopted the WM logo but changed it underneath to read "Candy Management Services - Think Sweet!" To finish off Brayden's costume is an orange shirt with a reflective V-vest. Priceless!
