This is a full-size template (pdf digital download) for you to create a transforming car costume for kids. For a demo video check my Instagram post:

The costume is designed to fit children with a max height of about 4'. While this is not a hard limit, the real constraint is if the person can fit within the costume in "car mode." Rough dimensions of the costume in "Car Mode" are L:31" W:12" H:13"

What's included:
+ The PDF template file: 3 pages (24"x36"). You'll need to take care of printing. I would recommend Staples' online service for engineering prints (link below).
+ The instructions: 3 pages (8.5"x11")
+ FAQ document to help answer any questions you have... but don't worry, you can always reach out to me, too!

Materials you'll need to complete the costume (not included):
+ Foamboard: 3 sheets 20"x30" (I would recommend the dollar store, or if you have your own, that's fine too)
+ Hot glue: Not too much, but more than a couple sticks
+ Tape: duct, painters (the blue stuff), packaging (the instructions give guidance on which type, and where)
+ Spray glue: kind of optional, but super helpful
+ Paint: up to you (but I might suggest yellow and black)

Tools you'll need to complete the costume (not included):
+ Box Cutter or X-Acto knife
+ Foamboard rabett cutter
+ Straight edge
+ Cutting mat
+ Hot-glue gun


Staples Engineering Prints cost about $3.50 per page for 24"x36".

    Worked great! My son absolutely loved his halloween costume. Thank you for making an awesome product! We used yellow foam board and then just spray painted the black. Worked great!

    These were awesome! Thank you for making my family's Halloween the best on the block!! Everyone was so impressed, and the directions were easy to follow. Thank you also for your quick reply on questions I had while constructing the costumes.

    Excellent! This pattern was super easy to follow, I’m not sure why people said it was too hard. I used yellow foam board and black Vinyl from the craft store to eliminate the need for painting. I highly recommend a foam board cutter in addition to the rabbet, I ordered a foam cutter by mistake thinking it was a rabbet and it was a serious lifesaver. Took me about 4 evenings after the kids went to bed to put this together and it was the hit of the neighborhood!

    Came out absolutely amazing!!! Looked great on also, was definitely the talk of the party!! Felt like an ambitious project but was fun and manageable if you are into making your kids costumes. Adding push lights gave it a nice touch, especially for night time trick or treating. I used paint and lots of tape, made shoulder straps with duct tape for the inside. Printed out pics of real Camaros and cut out the grill/lights etc to add some extra. Attention getter for sure, definitely recommend!
