Hi Everyone! New member here, but long time lurker.
This year for my Halloween costume, I dressed up at work. I work for an elevator components company in California and we make Elevator Controllers (the brains of the elevator). See below for my cardboard box creation.

Several hours of priming and spray painting in my garage! Stinky! LOL
Clever cuts with the exact-o knife and glue and more glue.

I had fully operating doors and a box within a box - with lots of caulk, but Spackle works best for the corners/edges.

feel free to ask any questions, and thank you for looking. Smiley  Grin

Thanks for the nice compliments. Unfortunately I didn't win the Halloween contest, there were some other really cool ones. But I enjoyed the crafting of the costume! Smiley
