Some kids want to be Batman or Disney characters for Halloween. Not Redditor MoobytheGoldenCalf’s son. He asked to be a vending machine. Since past years’ Halloween costumes have included a traffic cone and a mailbox, it’s clear the kid has a thing for inanimate objects. MoobytheGoldenCalf constructed the costume and stocked it with real snacks. He explains:
The front has a plastic/plexiglass sheet so that kids don’t run up to him and steal the chips. The slot on the right is the candy deposit slot, so the candy goes down a chute into the “push” bin section at the bottom. The inside of it has a piece of mirror film on the back of the chip area, so that he can see out, but people can’t see him. And the thing lights up too, which is probably a good idea as it’s just a black box from the back.
