Minecraft DIY Halloween Costume
Almost on a daily basis for the past month, I've said to Soren, "I'm not paying 20 bucks for a cardboard box."
He wanted to be a creeper from his favorite video game, which he doesn't actually own btw, for Halloween. He desperately wanted me to buy him this:
See, it's literally a cardboard box. So, we went round and round and he resisted all attempts to convince him we could make the same thing for free.
Finally, four days before Halloween, he caved in.
Thanks to this super generous and Illustrator savvy mom, Momma Needs A Hobby, I was able to print the graphic and face I needed for the box. It was super easy and all we needed was a cardboard box, a regular color printer, some regular clear tape, and a box cutter.
In the end, I think Soren actually enjoyed making his costume and I'm hoping there's at least a couple of lessons to be learned like A) Don't argue with mom, and B) We don't pay money for something we can make for free.
