Yes, it’s a Halloween Cardboard Costume Challenge, courtesy of a blogger in Japan, who would really like to see everyone use less plastic, please.
Amber’s arguments: “Cardboard is a wonderful material to adapt to holiday celebrations year round because it’s abundant, economical (usually free), recycle-able, and incredibly versatile.”
For those whose imaginations stop at a robot constructed from boxes, Amber has some photo suggestions. She also welcomes folks to visit her blog for weekly tutorials, like this one for an extravagant cardboard mustache, and to sign up to participate in her Costume Challenge.
Even if you’re not planning to wear a costume this Halloween, you might want to visit to see children’s table and chairs or other cardboard projects. (Bam! Take that, plastic!)
