Littlest Marty McFly and His Delorean Push Car





Introduction: Littlest Marty McFly and His Delorean Push Car

Halloween Photo Instructable Contest

It all started with a red puffy vest Cooper already had and a side comment from my husband about Marty McFly in late September. I’ve always loved Back to the Future, and love cars since I was little and grew up going to car shows with my Dad; what better way to tote my 1yr old son around on Halloween than in a transformed $25 Step2 push car I bought off of the kidsale alias at work? So, I spent a few weekends and nights in October recreating the iconic DeLorean with cardboard, tape, paint, and a little help with some EL lighting from my husband, Jeremy. The perfect costume for Cooper’s first Halloween!

What's funny is that I hated Halloween as a child, primarily because I was shy and never wanted to draw attention to myself (if you haven't noticed I have since stopped caring about this ;)). So while I have always loved creating things I actually remember being a 'boy' for 5 years in a row, wearing my brother's clothes and a hat to school. If you want to not stand out on Halloween, dress as a 'kid' ;) Now I can live vicariously through my son, making him an epic costume each year :)

That face he's making with the green striped shirt on? Yeah, that's exactly the face I made when I saw this. I absolutely love this, well done!

I'm sorry everybody else... but this is the most awesome thing I've seen on here in a long time. So cool!

I don't understand!? I bought the premium package to be able to download step, by step guides as to how to make this! I am not seeing instructions anywhere. Am I doing it wrong or are they just not here and I wasted my money?!

Hi Cory! I've been in love with this costume since finding in and really want to try and recreate it for my son. I even payed for the instructables pro account but still cant find the instructions. Am I just not looking i the right spot?

where are the instructions for this cardboard push car? I would love to make it but the instructions are not here. Thanks

Hello! I'm curious to know if you were ever able to find the instructions. I'm hoping to make this as well.

Hi Kristen – unfortunately no luck on any of the instructions.

Really cute, but where are the instructions?
