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

A word from Mindy, the 'Optimus Prime' costume creator:

My son Xander is 4 years old and he is obsessed with Optimus Prime so obviously when I asked him what he wanted to be for Halloween his answer was Optimus. Ever since he was a baby ALL of his costume had been homemade so I couldn't stop the tradition. I've seen videos online of other homemade transformer costumes so I decided to make this my own. I searched for the latest Optimus Prime pictures and saved all different angels of him for my reproduction. We got boxes from grocery stores and it was a trail and error process. Bought a lot of glue and paint. I'm OCD so I had to make it look as identical to the images as possible and because I wanted my son to be happy with its turn out. He'd ask me everyday till day of completion of I would work on it and nothing brought me more joy then seeing his eyes light up when it was completed

I upload a video of the transformation but here is the link Incase it didn't work


Or you can contact me and I can send you the video myself 😀 Thank you for your time
