This Man Wins Halloween's Costume Of The Year and The Dad Of The Year Award
This Dad creates a costume his son can wear with him. He wins Halloween's most creative Dad award this year.
A Costume for Two
During Halloween some people buy brand new shiny costumes while others make their own. This Dad wanted to make a costume he could wear with his son so he got his creative juices flowing.
A Little Pipe and Board
Ryan started creating this impressive costume using card board and pvc pipe. His wife Imgur user PutaBowOnIt shared the creative process from beginning to end.
A Game From the Past
Ryan came up with the idea when he was inspired from a computer game he used to play.
Painting Changes Everything
With a little spray paint the cardboard starts to transform into some sort of futuristic metal.
Having a Baby Helped
The cardboard boxes were courtesy of his son Geraint getting lots of baby stuff in the mail. Amazon and other baby stores provided the boxes needed.
Tying it Together
The PVC and cardboard is all tied together with zip ties and foam board was added where he thought the costume needed to look 3-D
Just Add the Baby
With the addition of Geraint and the top of the costume complete it looks like the baby is steering the machine as it moves around.
Perfect for Two
The top fits over Ryan's head and allows him to spend quality time with his son as they move around in the huge costume.
Attention to Detail
The costume is truly remarkable with the spray pain and attention to detail. It gives a great image as it moves towards you.
The Man Within
The feet fit over Ryan's shoes and his arms fit into the gun pods. The legs are supported by a hidden belt and the head is attached by Velcro. This is truly an amazing costume for father and son to wear together.
