Ok last year my son decided he wanted to be Mater from cars. SO I thought, how the heck am I going to make a car costume?? So this is what I came up with....



I hand painted the whole thing to match the rusty exterior of Mater, my son helped too, he did a great job.

Wow, that is fantastic! I'd better not let my son see it, cause he'll want one too and I don't think mine would look half as good! You totally captured Mater's facial expression, your son is very lucky.

This is the coolest costume ever! My 7 year old would kill for me to make him a Cars costume! And it looks like it can easily be seen all year as a stuffed pillow or something the rest of the year.

Awesome job!

this is so awesome!!  my son requested a mater costume last year, but i'm not that great w/my pattern making, so it didn't happen.  it's nice to see that someone could do it...gives me a spark of hope  Cheesy
