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.
Get it? It’s an Optimus Prime get-up made of Amazon boxes… hence, Amazon Prime.
Redditor caronarnold posted this contest-winning costume Friday morning, and she’s already swimming in karma, with 12,000 upvotes and counting as of this writing. 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.

But the best little detail is an instant nerd-credit boost: The whole ensemble comes together thanks to a pair of C-3PO leggings.
