Check out this boy’s homemade Rubik’s Cube Halloween costume

Colin Quinn, 9, parlayed his unsolved puzzle into an award-winning Halloween costume.

The Palm Beach Gardens boy created his Rubik’s cube costume from an 18 x 18 x 18 cardboard box, colored paper and electrical tape. It won The Gardens Mall’s Spooky Soiree costume contest on Instagram.

“I decided to be something original, because all those years, I’d been basically the same thing, an Army man, but I decided to just be a Rubik’s cube,” said Quinn, a third grade student at The Weiss School. “I copied off my Rubik’s cube, and I made it myself.”

He got a lot of compliments for his originality when he was trick-or-treating, too, he said.

Quinn thinks he’s close to solving the Rubik’s cube he’s been working on for a few years and that his costume will help.

He’s got his Halloween costumes for the next few years all lined up: a tissue box with his mom accompanying him as a sick person, a present, a Minecraft mine, a Jack in the Box and a solved Rubik’s cube.

He’s resourceful, too. He said he’ll use the base of this year’s costume for all the rest.
