Kids come up with the greatest costume requests for Halloween. Redditor MoobyTheGoldenCalf’s son wanted to be a vending machine. Hey, it means you have a constant supply of snacks to keep you going while trick-or-treating. The front of the machine is covered in Plexigass to protect the kid and to stop others from swiping the chips. The costume has slot on the right that accepts candy. Mooby used mirror film on the back of the vending machine so that his son can see but still remain hidden, and he worked in a light to better showcase the vending machine’s stock. Mooby said he made a bungee cord harness for the costume so it sits on his son’s shoulders. There are also handles inside so his son can control it and move easier.
