    Hey everyone,

    I got into a rhythm about 6 years ago and decided to make my son a transformer for Halloween. I use cardboard, hot glue, zip ties, velcro, and spray paint. I know it's not really papercraft per se, but I wanted to share these nonetheless. Let me know what you think.

    Fantastic outfits, man! Your kid must've been pretty happy, and you too, of course.

    Thanks!

    Thank you! He was always the kid who everyone wanted to see and get pictures of, that's for sure! He wasn't too happy walking around in the costumes though, they are always very bulky! It's something I'm trying to fix.

    Thank you all so much for your appreciation!

    Thank you everyone! It's one of the few things I take a lot of pride in! It takes many, many hours and is only used for about 2 hours of trick or treating 1 day a year, but seeing the looks on peoples faces, hearing the compliments, and getting my son's picture taken make it all so worth it!
