Make a Transformers Jazz Costume From Cardboard

Music-loving robot Jazz is smooth, and Instructables user SpicyPandaCreations is just as cool for building a version of Jazz from corrugate. He used cardboard, hot glue, blue acetate, LED lights, soda caps, and several more miscellaneous supplies for the build. The best part is that you probably have many of the items around your home and garage. Here’s how he used the cardboard to make Jazz’s thighs:

1. The thighs are basically boxes. They are just angled in and there is a little section cut out.

2. Poke a hole on the sides (hip side). Take a metal circle washer and glue it on either side of the hole. get some string or more shoe lace and thread it through. about 4 -5 inches should do.

– The washer is so that the thread will be supported by the washer, and not the cardboard (which can easily rip through with wear/tear)..

3. To wear the thighs, you need a belt around your waist. put on the thighs and then use the string to tie them to the belt. This way, they do not fall when you are walking around.
