This homemade costume for boys entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Karla, the 'Claw Machine' costume creator:

My 7 year old son loves to play the claw game! So when asked what do you wanna be he said inside the claw machine! We made it halloween themed ! We use cardboard and fabric and plastic for the machine. Foam and birthday Tierra's torn apart for the claw. A v smile remote took apart and painted for the control stick. We went to Walmart took pictures of the parts of the machine printed out and placed. We uses a back pack and zip tied it to the inside place foam as a base to fill with halloween decor! Painted his face and hair and made his night!!! Kids crude wanting to play it and a kid tried to put a dollar in it !! We also put lights in it to help the effect!
