Amazing Homemade Cardboard Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Costumes

Take a look at these amazing Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em costumes, handmade by EyeHeartInk and his friend. They used lots of cardboard and duct tape, and it took them 2 months. The rivets are actually ping pong balls, cut in half. And the eyes even light up, so fantastic!

This toy came out in the mid-1960s, and I’m surprised to learn that it’s still being sold today. Amazon has it for $20.00. It’s nice to see an old fashioned toy stand the test of time.

I’ve posted a few photos here, but Click Here to view the complete gallery showing how the costumes were made. Amazing job, Sirs!

I glued on the accent pieces and taped over them. I highly recommend using spray tack before you put duct tape on the cardboard. I didn’t do this the first time and had to Re-Tape the whole arm. I then glued a strap of elastic into the hand for a grip.
