You're gonna need a lot of hot glue.

If you’re looking for a last-minute Halloween costume, start ordering now: This incredible Amazon Prime outfit requires over a dozen two-day shipping boxes—and a lot of hot glue.

She clarified in the comments that no, she doesn’t work for Amazon (but will happily accept leads!) and that she was inspired by this Instructables build of an Optimus Prime costume for her own construction.
