This Tank was put together by "Cardboard Sculptor" Bob.
There are no instructions but one who has a good eye and a good imagination may be able to create something similar off of the photos Ü
Below you can see another Tank Costume posted by Mom, Maria, to my 2009 Halloween Costume Contest. Eddie and Maria, created the tank with Cardboard, Paper Towel Rolls, Black Paper, etc. and LOTS of TAPE!

The making of one of these "Cardboard Sculpted" Costumes can be quite a task. I have not, as yet, seen a place to PURCHASE costumes of this type and if there were something like this out there to buy I am certain it would be quite costy. Then there is the fact that some of these types of Costumes are "Vehicles" of some sort which the driver may wish to "park" and GET OUT OF at some point. You may wish to come up with your own, homemade "uniform" to go with the Vehicle to complete the Costume... which I am sure many Costume makers can do without much problem. If you, however, find yourself short on time and/or energy (not surprising after all of the work with cardboard and tape Ü) You might just want to visit one of my favorite On Line Costume Stores and see what is available. In some cases the purchase of a Costume... or a "partial" costume, as would be the case here...may save you MUCH on time and wear and tear. As you may notice, the cost of Materials to make a costume... may be more than what you could/would pay for a costume already made. Just a thought. Ü
