Cardboard Man

I admittedly love Halloween. What's not to like about an opportunity to consume tons of sugar and walk the streets of your neighborhood in disguise. Another thing that this holiday has always done, is force me to create a character and costume. Maybe it was due to the fact that my mother really enjoyed making my sister and I elaborate costumes when we were little kids, and I'm reliving it all again. I definitely want to carry on the tradition with my three year old son.

This year it wasn't a difficult decision as to what I was going to be. Sometimes work imitates life and I've been working with a lot of corrugated cardboard over the past few months at the design house where I work (hutch studio). I've been creating all sorts of things with old boxes and scraps so why not an outfit to wear. Some may call it frugal fashion but I call it "fun".
