You can buy thematic cubes with different custom printed stickers. Usually these stickers display a city sight so they make perfect souvenirs. Rubik's fans usually have calendar stickers on their cubes, and the possibilities are endless.
I used a different box (about the same size as the first one) made of 8/9" thick cardboard to use for the tiles
you'll need to calculate the size of you tiles based on the size of the base box you start with,
Plan to leave about 6" between tiles. Also, plan to have the edge/corner tiles hang over the edge by the amount of the thickness of your tiles.
You'll need 99 tiles. 9 tiles x 5 sides (none on the bottom) - one full tile missing for the head hole.
after I cut my tiles with a knife I cut off the corners with a band saw to "round" the edges (Optional)
Have fun with your costume
let your friends try it on
use it as a coffee table until next Halloween!
The chart below will analyze each speed cube based on 8775 Turning 8776 and 8775 Corner Cutting 8776 which are the main features of a speed cube. The third feature is 8775 Catching and Lockups 8776 which is an indicator of the first two main features. So a good combination of Turning and Corner Cutting will generally mean a speed cube will handle Catching and Lockups very well. The last feature in the chart is 8775 Actual Solving 8776 which is not a direct score from the first three features but the true feeling of a speed cube during what actually matters.
