VW Beetle Transformer Halloween Costume by Luis Linares
Luis Linares pulled out all the stops for this VW Beetle Transformer costume, which is made from a heap of salvaged toys and a lot of ingenuity! Luis based his costume on a set of football shoulder pads, and he used a grey foam mat to create the robot's bulky form and pieces from gun and car toys to give it a high-tech finish.
HOW TO MAKE THIS COSTUME
Use a pair of football shoulder pads as a base upon which to construct the transformer's upper body.
Use the hood from a Volkswagen Beetle power wheel to construct the chest plate.
Take apart mechanical toys like guns and cars to salvage accent and detail parts. Paint them chrome or silver to match the rest of the costume.
Using a grey foam mat, cut out pieces for the costume's legs, lower body, and arms. Paint these pieces silver and then use glue or grey tape to attache the detail parts.
