Need a boom box for your Fresh Prince costume? Well you have come to the right place.. In this Instructable I aim to explain how I made mine in a hope that it helps you with yours!

Well, as with all my Instructables thus far, this is for a sketch in this years Chester Gangshow, which is like a variety show put on by members of the Scout association... And I run the Props room... Due to Gangshow having a relatively low budget for props I tend to make a lot of the items out of cardboard and hotmelt glue

If you have any questions let me know! Jay

Step 1: Ingredients!

SO!... What do you need for this one? Aside from the patience and time (as this one will take you a while) you will need:

* Cardboard- For this Instructable I used a pre-constructed box but the regular 3mm card will do too... REMEMBER to recycle
* Knife/ Scissors
* Glue- I use a glue gun, as i think for construction its alot better as it has a very fast drying time, but regular PVA glue or superglue will work just as well, you just need to factor in how long your glue will take to dry etc.
* Ruler
* Split pins/ Paper fasteners
* Pen
* Time: I took about two hours getting this together, it wouldnt have taken me so long if i wasn't writing an instructable hehe

I made one of these once, for a Halloween party. I fit it over my head and held it with one hand all the time. When people looked to see who's head was on the other side.. they laughed when there was none.. I was going to put a small cassette player in it for extra effect...didn't get around to that.
hehehe thats an AWESOME&nbsp;idea &lt;grin&gt;<br />
