Costume Information

Cost : About £30
Awards : I won letter of the Month in the Official Transformers Comic UK back in 2008 (almost a year after i sent in some pics)
Time Taken : 3 Weeks

A Costume i made for a friends Fancy Dress Birthday Night out back in 2007 just after the 1st Live Action Movie came out.

I chose to do Generation 1 style Optimus Prime as its my all time fav version of him.

I made the entire costume out of Cardboard Boxes, Duct Tape, and Paper Mache.

I didnt design it to transform, but i discovered that if i placed pieces together, i was able to transform it into a truck when i wasnt wearing it.

It was quite easy to move and walk in, though i could only bend my arms 90 Degrees and so had to have a straw in my drink lol.
