DIY Pocky Halloween Costume

Who loves Pocky?! *raises hands* Who here loves Pocky so much, they wish they could be Pocky? (I can’t say I’ve had that impulse….) Well now you can, dreamers!


  • Large cardboard box
  • Red spray paint (you might need 2 cans)
  • “Pocky” letters free printable – download it here
  • Scissors
  • Knife
  • Xact-o knife
  • Brown packaging wrapping paper
  • Acrylic paint – brown, tan, and white
  • Hot glue gun + hot glue
  • Packing tape
  1. Make sure your large cardboard box is the right size for you to fit inside it. If needed, you might have to do some free-hand  “tailoring” on the box if it’s too large for you. If you have to do this, I recommend using hot glue to affix any pieces together.
  2. Before you start cutting any holes for your arms and head, you’ll need to cut off the bottom flaps so you can get in and out of the box, of course! With the box still flattened, use a knife to carefully cut off the folding flaps on one end. Now you can assemble the box! When taping the flaps down, tape it on the inside.
    NOTE: I recommend also using some hot glue to glue together the flaps to make it extra sturdy.
  3. Use the knife again to cut out holes for the arms and head.
  4. Head outside, or somewhere very well ventilated, to spray paint the box. Spray the box with 2 coats. Let it dry completely.
  5. To make the Pocky sticks, cut off a large piece of the brown wrapping paper. Tape it down on a flat surface, and paint three-fourths (3/4) of it with the brown acrylic paint. Let it dry completely.
    (This is what you’ll be cutting out the Pocky sticks from. The painted, brown part is the chocolate, and the brown wrapping paper is the biscuit part.)
  6. Cut out Pocky sticks from the painted wrapping paper you just made. Round both ends.
  7. Print off the free “Pocky” letters printable, and cut them out, using the Xact-O knife to cut out any white spaces in the letters. (Download the freebie here!)
  8. Arrange the Pocky sticks on the front of the box, and use hot glue to glue them down. Keep gluing down the Pocky sticks until you achieve the look you want. Use this photo for reference!
  9. Using the tan acrylic paint to paint shine lines. To see what I’m referring to, see this picture.
  10. Arrange the “Pocky” letters, then hot glue them down.
  11. Using a small paint brush and white acrylic paint, free-hand “Glico” in the top left corner. Let it dry, and then your costume is completely finished!
