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.
#1 - 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.
#2 - 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.
#3 - A Game From the Past
Ryan came up with the idea when he was inspired from a computer game he used to play.
#4 - Painting Changes Everything
With a little spray paint the cardboard starts to transform into some sort of futuristic metal.
#5 - 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.
#6 - 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
#7 - 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.
#8 - 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.
#9 - 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.
#10 - 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.
