The things that you need to create a transformer costume are a large cardboard red box, box cutters, Glue, 2 soda bottles, an all black outfit. With the box you can cut the sides off with a pair of scissors and then you can cut the bottoms of the box for an area for your feet and arms to come out of. You will have to sit under the box and place yourself under to see whether or not you fit. If you do fit continue to cut out smaller rectangles to paste the shield for your transformer and create its name. you ten will cut out another rectangle where your face should be and make an opening so that you can put a flap over it. Once you begin to decorate and color your box you would need to test it to see if it is able to actually look like a transformer. If you want to go even further and look more like a transformer you can get another box. With this box you can make rectangles that go around your arms and legs. After this you will need to be able to crouch down like your favorite transformer, and amaze everyone of how much you look like a real transformer.
