Wyatt's Sanitation Costume

Costume type:  Costumes for Boys
Category:Halloween Costumes

This homemade costume for boys entered our 2016 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Kelly, the 'Wyatt's Sanitation' costume creator:

My son (Wyatt) is 3 years old and is obsessed with recycling and trash pick up. He told me he wanted to be a trash truck for Halloween. So I searched for trash trucks on Pinterest and found some ideas but had no instructions to make. We made this from a piece of OSB for the frame of the costume. Made it to fit his wagon. I went to my local library and used their Ellison machine to make letters for the truck. My husband had a light for on top of the truck and hooked up to a 6 volt battery. We bought lights from the dollar general for the headlights. We added reflectors and a piece of steel that my husband had for the grill on the trash truck. We already had a steering wheel so we attached that and we can detach when we are finished. This costume cost to make about $25 but we had a lot of the items and depending on how detailed you would like to get.

Great job! He really fits the part! Very creative! I couldn't find the like button, so hopefully this will count.

Wyatt had a great idea, and with his parents help it came out very nice. He also is into recycling and collects cans to sell at Bates Recycling in Cygnet, Ohio
