How to build a cardboard Dalek costume

I found this site because my Yoga teacher told me that her son wanted to dress up as a Dalek for Halloween and she was looking for some ideas on how to make a costume.

If you aren’t familiar with Daleks, they are the big baddies on the long-running sci-fi series, Doctor Who (It’s been on for 55 years!)  I did a little searching and found this handy tutorial that shows you how to create a pretty good looking costume out of scraps, common household items, and some inexpensive craft supplies.

It’s a fun and fairly inexpensive project for a family to do together. Though if the kids are small, you’ll want to give a hand cutting out the cardboard.

Now, this is not the slickest costume I’ve ever seen. It’s kind of what I like about it. This looks like something you could actually achieve at home and not one of those perfectly finished masterpieces you could never hope to recreate.
