In past few years, Joe and I have cooked up increasingly complex costumes for our son Lloyd. It started with the robot costume which had lights which everyone loves. We took what we learned constructing the robot and went with a vending machine theme. There was a candy machine that also lit up followed by everybody’s favorite, the Seeburg table-top jukebox which lit up, of course, and played music.
This time we went to the arcade for inspiration.
We were trying to think up another vending machine, and Joe came up with the idea last year of doing an arcade fortune teller machine. We started researching and gathering items at the end of the summer. We watched the movie Big which we hadn’t seen in years. This is a dress rehearsal shot that we did last night to make sure everything fit and functioned as planned.
