This is going back a bit (2014)

My daughter decided that she wanted to go to her school book week dress-up day as a cyberman.

With 24 hours and approximately $20 in resources – this was the outcome.


Mask: cardboard, tinfoil, two bendy straws and the packet that an actual face mask came in (the mask itself was too flimsy), also the eye lenses were made from a broken pair of sunglasses.

Earmuffs: $2 shop snow earmuffs covered in silver crepe paper (nothing sticks to crepe paper – it’s incredibly annoying to work with).

Chest plate: cardboard, tinfoil, white elastic coloured in with a silver sharpie.

Arm and leg plates: cut out of some oven trays that we had lying around the house & tied on with shirring elastic coloured with silver sharpie.
