Dad, Husband, Sci Fi Geek with ZERO artistic talent. Fixing cars and houses is what I've taught myself so far. My daughter loves Sci-Fi as well and asked me to make a Ripley's Power Loader Costume in 2019 for Halloween 2020. I started at the beginning of the Pandemic since my business came to a full stop. On March 8th 2020 I cut my first box and here are the things I came up with. Hope you guys like it!

Thank you for taking the time out to check out our first Boxtume build. When I began, I had no intention of even taking pictures until I was done until my daughter suggested that I do so for posterity. I took pics as often as I could for her. I was able to also build an Alien Queen to set off her Boxtume. I will publish that build tonight. If you have any questions and or i can help with your carboard pilgrimage, please contact me, would be more than happy to help, :)

Step 2: Power Loader Hydraulic Arms

Step 3: Power Loader Head Cage

So incredible! This should win!!!! However, I notice there isn't a step by step guide, only photos. Having more details on how it was made would be amazing!
