The "Walking Tank"

I made this tank costume for halloween out of four old cardboard boxes and a cardboard tube. The uniform I bought with my own money and wore as play clothes. In addition to the three boxes that made up the body of the tank, there was a fourth box recessed into the main body of the tank just forward of the turret. This box had a lid that opened and allowed me to put my halloween candy and other things in it for carrying. Behind me you can see the white 1963 Chevy that we bought in California when our old 1956 Chevy broke down on our trip out there.
