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

A word from Tyler, the 'Transformer' costume creator:

I work for a shipping company that has a costume context every year. I like to keep my costume inline with our business so I made a YRC Truck Transformer Costume. YRC is one of the main LTL Carriers we partner with. Some instructions on making the costume: 1. Find the right size boxes (this was difficult and I would have gone less deep on my boxes in the end). 2. The wheel wells that I hold my my hand took the longest and I just cut, shaped, and tapped them together. 3. The boxes over my calves become the back wheels of the Semi (when I lay down) and are just cardboard folded and taped together in a square with cardboard wheels hot glued to the outside 4. The main body needs a head and arm wholes cut out. 5. Spray paint didn't look good in the end so I bought a large roll of white paper to cover everything. The smoke stacks are just cardboard rolls painted with silver paint and hot glued, Taped and zip tied on. 6. The decals (YRC logo, windows, transformer logo, rims on the wheels, and grill) were done with my vinyl machines. 7. The head lights on the wheels wells are just battery powered push lights I got at Walmart. 8. The lights on the top of the truck are battery powered candles form Walmart (6 for $3) in the Christmas section and were hot glued to Poster Board I taped in a triangle shape.
