Your Halloween Costume Can Bite This Mad Max Power Wheel's Dust

By Andrew Liszewski on at

Some people think Halloween isn’t as fun with kids because you can’t spend all night partying. But this creative couple prove that Halloween is infinitely better when you’re a parent, because you get to build phenomenal costumes like this Mad Max Power Wheels.

What started off as a couple of second-hand Power Wheels toys (including one of Barbie’s rides) was turned into an amazing Mad Max prop powered by four electric motors. The pint-sized perfect replica also boasts power steering, seating for two, a key-start ignition, sound effects including a truck’s air horn, and an iPhone override so it can be steered remotely from a smartphone when a night of exhaustive trick or treating finally takes it toll.

Just as with previous Halloween creations from the couple in question, Cory and Jeremy Newton-Smith, such as the BTTF DeLorean pram or the tiny Ecto-1, their son Cooper is the adorable star of the show. And this year he looks quite convincing as a very, very young Mad Max.

However, this year it’s his younger 11-month-old sister Ziggy who completely steals the show as the cutest take on Imperator Furiosa you’ve ever seen.

Just give her all the sweets already.

If you’d like to say thanks to Cory and Jeremy for inspiring you to step up your Halloween costume game, they’re currently trying to raise money to help kids live more healthy and active lifestyles—and also take down Immortan Joe. [RottenKitten Studio]
