DIY Kid In Trash Can Optical Illusion Costume


Every year my son wants to come up with the most original costume. So, we got online to look for inspiration. He really liked the illusion costumes, especially the man carrying a person in a box. Of course we didn’t want to just copy that so we made it our own! We got a trash can and built a small, lightweight frame for the mans shoulders. Then we attached a mask and stuffed it to look real. With an old shirt and some glasses he was complete! We then just cut a hole in the can and he wore his jeans and rubber boots! We laughed immediately and knew this was it!!! Everyone at school and out trick or treating had to look twice to figure it out. He brought a smile to all and that’s what it’s all about!!!
