Welcome to Cardboard Costume Challenge 2017!
It’s all about inspiration, the exchange of ideas, and the excitement of making something by hand.
There are no contests.
Just look around on the site, Pinterest Board, and around the web and challenge yourself to make your costume from cardboard, and whatever other scraps you can find.
If you would like to share your costume, send us a picture and we’ll post it.
We’ve already started to receive some costumes for 2017.
Cardboard train costume by Alex Nadeau
What impresses me most, is the smiles of a family that “makes” together. From hair-brained idea to triumphant march on Halloween night, you can tell they enjoyed the whole process.
I hope you will be as inspired as I was by the favorite cardboard projects that costume meisters Rosie and Ben have created over the years. They sent me these pictures of their costumes for the Cardboard Costume Challenge.
Viva la Halloween!
