This homemade costume for girls entered our 2018 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Jesenia, the 'The Endure Monster Truck' costume creator:

I absolutely love making my kids happy and my kids love to challenge me for sure! The Endure Monster Truck was inspired by my daughter’s love for monster trucks and her endurance as she was born with fibular hemimelia and has gone through multiple surgeries including hip, knee, ankle, and currently limb lengthening. On her feet or in a wheelchair, she sure is unstoppable; but so am I with cardboard and lots of tape! With a few measurements of the wheelchair, I was able to cut the cardboard to the exact size to fit perfectly over the wheelchair so that she would be seated in the driver position. I used tape to put it together and paper mache to strengthen the body of the truck. Cutting out a postal board to the shape of the monster truck and taping it over the paper mache creates a nice smooth surface for paint. I used blue spray paint and a glittery pink spray paint to give it some sparkle. I also used stencils to create the design on both sides. Dad made the tires out of cardboard, hot glue and masking tape, and spray painted with plasti dip which created an unexpected worn out tire look that we absolutely loved! I gave my daughter some materials I had found at the dollar store, so she made the steering wheel for her monster truck. She used a floral foam wreath, black duct tape, a steering wheel cover and some cardboard. She also got a little extra creative and made a license plate out of cardboard and added her own personal touch. I used a metallic red tape and a metallic silver tape to create a headlight and tail light illusion. Fabric was also attached to the inner part of the truck to cover the wheelchair wheels. After that was all covered up, I taped the suspension, chassis and tires to the body and over the fabric. The final Cost was around $50 and about 48-55 hours to accomplish the entire project. It has been extremely tiring, yet the most gratifying experience ever!
