Follow these simple directions to create a Mr. or Mrs. Robot costume.

Mr. or Mrs. Robot Costume

Time: 1 Hour

Effort: Easy - no sewing required


  • Small and large cardboard box
  • Silver paint
  • Plastic accordion dryer vent pipe
  • Buttons
  • Jar lids
  • Plastic Easter eggs
  • Clothespins
  • Colored shoe strings
  • Magic markers
  • Pipe cleaners
  • An imagination and a sunny day
  • Duct tape
  • Ribbon

Instructions: Spray paint both boxes silver. When small box is dry, cut out two large round eye holes, a large V-shaped or square shaped mouth hole, and nose hole if wanted. Cut arm holes in the large box, big enough to accommodate the dryer vent pipe. Cut the vent pipe in two pieces and attach in arm holes. Then use glue and your imagination to finish. Use one half of a plastic egg on each side of the small box to make ears. Add pipe cleaners at top (straight or curly-Q around) to form antennas. On the front, use Easter eggs, ribbon, clothes pins, markers, and shoe string to create control panel. A little imagination will go a long way).
