I don’t know about you, but I’m sick and tired of some of the store-bought Halloween costumes that cost a fortune and just aren’t very creative.

Back in the day, we didn’t buy costumes. Our parents got stuck helping us create something magical. Those works of art ranged from a vampire to a freighter or princess. And for those really difficult years, the now politically incorrect hobo.

This year, one family got super creative. A YouTube video shows what they crafted using items from around their home. The epic costume is a “Transformer” that really transforms from a car to a robot.

“Triston wanted to be a transformer for Halloween, so his father decided to create this this ‘Bumblebee’ Transformer costume using cardboard, glue, tape, paint and a couple of lights,” the description on YouTube reads.

What are you dressing up as for Halloween this year?
