This homemade costume for men entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Resty, the 'Man in the Box' costume creator:

I'm a Big Fan of illusion costumes, and decided to make my own variation of one. Super cheap and easy to make from stuff that may be lying around the house. The soldiers clothes are an old pair of BDU's I used for paintballing. The box itself is an old storage bin that I cut a hole into one side corner to fit my body through. To make the torso of the soldier, I cut an old styrofoam cooler box and screwed it into the side of the storage bin. Soldiers arms are stuffed with styrofoam and gloves were stapled to the side of the bin. The soldier's head is an $8 styrofoam head from amazon that I painted. The legs in the box are a pair of old jeans stuffed with bubble wrap up to a pair of old shoes that are staple gunned to the jeans. I used the straps of an old backpack and screwed to the inside of the bin. These straps looped around my waist to keep this light contraption held up.
