DIY: Retro Robot Halloween Costume

Retro Staff Comments
Robot Costume

This costume is pretty simple, and with some odds and ends around the house you can really take it over the top. Details available at Spoonful.

If you’ve been procrastinating about a kid’s costume for the upcoming Halloween festivities, here’s a spectacular do-it-yourself robot costume we found over at Spoonful.

Using odds and ends, duct tape, dryer duct and foil components, this project should take but a few hours and pack a lot of “out of this world” punch. Best thing? It’s totally recyclable!

Of course, there’s nothing to say you can’t dress up as a robot yourself. Just be sure to grab more duct, tape and foil!

Plan to make this? Have another great quick-and-easy DIY retro costume? We’d love to hear your ideas (and see pics).
