Default My sons Halloween costume build ideas--speed boat

So my son want to be a speed boat for Halloween. I've tried convincing him to be a captain and we can turn his power wheels into a boat but no way he wants to be the boat. So my thought is to build a frame out of 1/4 pvc somehow. I will then wrap the frame tight with a white sheet and pain accordingly. Then he can stand in it and wear it with suspenders. Could do with cardboard like we did last year. Oh and it needs a black outboard lol

Anyone have any other ideas?? This was his costume last year when he wanted to be a fire truck. If it has a motor he wants to be it. Name:  IMG_1055.jpg

I'm thinking 4 x 8 door skin from HD. You can let some of the natural varnished wood show.
This look is cool...

Yeah I love this stuff. It's such a good feeling when they get into the same stuff you are into. He's an awesome kid so I'll do anything he wants.
