At Advance Moving & Storage, as movers in New Bern, Kinston, and Greenville NC, Halloween always finds a way to sneak up on us. That doesn’t stop us from getting into the spirit though. If you’ve been busy moving this fall, you don’t have to skip out on Halloween.
Chances are, you have all you need— boxes! Don’t throw away and recycle them. Here are 3 amazing ideas what kind of costumes you can do with the boxes you just moved with.

1. Go Robotic

It’s just a classic. Just grab a can a silver spray paint, maybe some aluminum foil and markers and you got it. You can go as complex or simple as you want. It’s a classic. You could even go as a classic character like Wall-E or go as obscure as a robot from Metropolis. Here’s an easy guide from Parents magazine to get you started.

2. Become a Warrior

Whether you go full knight or just do a framework, cardboard is a perfect medium to build a sword, breastplate and helmet. Just grab the duct tape, paint, and get ready to go into cardboard battle. Try this tutorial via My Modern Met.

3. Be a Kitchen Appliance

Comedic Halloween costumes are often the best. So go as an appliance like a microwave or television, or a pair of scissors or even as a moving box filled with stuff. You’re bound to be a hit at any party you go to. Try going as some of this appliances via this guide from American Home Shield.
