What do you want to be for Halloween?

Our Boo-Haul Halloween Costume Contest is over. See the winners here!

Looking for some great Halloween costume ideas? You have less than two weeks until Halloween, so it is time to get your costume in order! Here are some great costume ideas we have found around the web!

Lego – We found this one on Pinterest. Love playing with blocks? Then this is a simple costume that is great for you or your kid. All you need is two U-Haul boxes, a couple of Solo cups and spray paint.

Bun in the Oven – Moving Insider reader Stephanie won a U-Haul VIP gift certificate for sharing her costume idea using U-Haul moving supplies: “I plan on being an oven (made out of a cardboard box) and silver spray paint with the door open showing my preggo belly and my husband is going to be a baker. ‘Bun in the Oven’” If you have another great costume idea, then share it with us in comments and you could win a U-Haul VIP gift certificate too!

Are you a Barbie girl, in a Barbie world? Costume via Amanda Sarver

Barbi Doll in a Box – Want to get all dolled up for Halloween? Amanda Sarver provides a great look at how she created her Barbi costume, complete with the box. The Barbi Dream House is definitely sold seperately. If Barbi dolls were not exactly your thing when you are growing up, this costume idea can be converted into a G.I. Joe in box.

Minecraft Costumes – Are you or your child a big fan of the PC game Minecraft? Check out this post for some great instructions on how to create a Minecraft creeper head and more to give your Halloween costume that perfect computer game look.

The Tin Man – Kevin S has already entered the Boo-Haul Halloween Costume Contest dressed as the Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz. He and his mom created this costume out of a U-Haul box, packing tape, a tarp, and an ample amount of silver spray paint. He is some of your competition in our costume contest, so do you think you can one-up this costume?
