"Robo Bubba Robot Costume"

My 2 year old son, Anthony, REALLY wanted to be a robot for Halloween. I decided to make it myself using cardboard boxes, silver duct tape, glue gun, and foil bubble wrap (from home depot).

I used Elmer's spray adhesive to stick the bubble wrap around the boxes and finished all edges with duct tape. I accessorized with items from around the house such as: tea lights for knobs, a kitchen timer, CD, LED light on top of the head. I used a glue gun to glue strips of the bubble wrap around his gray pants and shirt.

I had some leftover letter stickers (from Michael's Crafts) from a previous project so I spelled out 'Robo Bubba' on the back.

He loved wearing it and thought it was fun to say "I. Am. A. Robot."
