Step 1: Materials and tool

1 about 17 1/2 x 12 inch box
1 can of gold spray paint
1 cheap black running jacket
plastic wrap
black see through fabric
binder clips
hot glue gun
scissors or exacto knife

Step 2: Cutting the box

Cut the bottom of the box (laying vertical) about 3 inches off the whole bottom leaving you with the an empty bottom. Tape the box lid and the box together so they stay together.

Step 3:

To make it so that your head doesn't move around the box i used the leftover end i had cut off and taped down to surround my head so that it fit snug. If you want you can stuff paper inside to add some cushion.

Step 4: Painting and cutting out

cut a circle and a cylinder and hot glue the knob on. Now you are going to spray paint your box gold(NOTE: DO NOT CUT ANYTHING OUT UNTIL YOU HAVE FINISHED PAINTING).To cut out the eyes i used a wide soup can about 3 1/2" in diameter. Cut mouth so that you can see through it.

Step 5: Eyes and mouth covering

Cover the eye holes with plastic wrap and tape it down then color it red where the eye holes are. I got two wristbands that had four lights in each that blink and i took them out and glue them to a piece of cardboard. Then cover the mouth hole with the black see through fabric and tape it down so that there are no folds.

Step 6: Gold Jacket

thanks this helps so much!(: where can i get LED lights?
TChin1108 (author)  julian212 years ago
i used a maxsa safety wristband with blinking LEDs and i took them out, but you probably not going to be able to get them unless shipped next day air. so you could just use a light stick from party city or something

about what are the dimensions of the box you used
TChin1108 (author)  dhooper2 years ago
about 17x11 1/2x9 " its like one of those office paper boxes. I'm not really sure where i got mine i just found it lying around, sorry if this doesn't help.
think it helps. thanks much, now i got all the stuff got to put it all together party Saturday.
how did u stabilize the head, mine flops everywhere
TChin1108 (author)  anhbuttercup2 years ago
To make it so that your head doesn't move around the box i used the leftover end i had cut off and taped down to surround my head so that it fit snug. If you want you can stuff paper inside to add some cushion. if you did that then just add some more paper as stuffing or cardboard so that it is tight. also you might want to make it go lower to your cheeks. use the image below and in step 3
