Optimus Prime as Bumblebee Costume
Look it is ME!
|Costume type:||Costumes for Boys|
This homemade costume for boys entered our 2019 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Krishna, the 'Optimus Prime as Bumblebee' costume creator:
My son saw a transforming costume online.
Obviously, I had to make one for him this Halloween.
He wanted a car, but we had an Optimus Prime helmet...
We made Optimus dressed as Bumblebee for halloween.
Our inspiration were paper card templates that we cut it out and adapted to make a model.
The process for this project was a long parade of mistakes and new ideas but at the end of the day we had a cool cardboard box transforming car.
The costume is made of cardboard that is duck taped together and overlaid with signmaking vinyl.
We zip tied at three-quarter inch PVC frame inside that we attached to his dirtbike body armor with shoulder pads.
We attached are bicycle safety lights to this he also wore a space robot bodysuit, kneepads, and elbow pads.
In addition to his awesome gloves, and an Optimus Prime helmet he rode a hover board that was attached to the phone with Bluetooth speakers which blasted the Transformers theme song.
We got a lot of positive feedback from folks at the Jackson Heights children’s Halloween parade in Queens New York city…
My son was very happy.
We hope you enjoy.
