VW Hippie Bus Costume
VW Hippie Bus
|Costume type:||Costumes for Babies|
This homemade costume for babies entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Miles, the 'VW Hippie Bus' costume creator:
My family has always had a fondness for VW buses, so naturally my son Austin grew a liking to these cool iconic cars from attending car shows with me, his dad.
I knew I wanted to make a "car themed" Halloween costume for him and this idea popped into my head while his mother and I were sitting in the hospital waiting for Austin's sister to be born earlier this month.
The frame is made from light weight wood and the body is spray painted cardboard. The front headlights are push tap lights, and the rear lights are mini flashlights. Austin stands inside and can push the bus since it is on wheels. A tie dye shirt and headband finish off his hippie look.
