Rob Cockerham says one component of having a successful Halloween costume is dressing like something people love, and Disneyland is something nearly everyone loves. It’s the happiest place on Earth! For Halloween 2013, Rob made a wearable version of Disneyland by becoming a map of the theme park. It’s creative and would also make for a great display after the holiday. He planned the map with a steep angle so that kids would be able to see everything.
He determined the size of the map and where he would put his head, and he ended up going with Sleep Beauty’s castle as the center of the map. He started with a giant version of a satellite map of the park and printed it out across 70 sheets of paper. He glue them to a huge sheet of styrofoam and used construction paper shapes to determine which attractions would be included and where they would go. From there, he started building structures from foam board. It only gets more intense from there, and the build is impressive.
See tons more photos and read all about the build at Rob’s blog.
