This shot did not turn out entirely the way I had planned it. It turned out to be a lot more work piecing the boxes together to fit my frame than I had imagined. Since I had no one to help me I had to figure out how to slide into the boxes and position myself properly. I had to take a lot of images before I had all the details worked out. It wasn't until the very end when I had pretty much decided I was finished that Cooper meandered over to see what I was up to. I continued shooting. This was the 2nd to last shot and I knew it was the one!

Thank you everyone for your amazing comments. I have enjoyed so much reading your reactions to this image. It makes the time and effort well worth it to know that the viewers find pleasure and even a little chuckle from my "in the box" humor!!!

I had cut a hole in the box next to my right hand. I hid the trigger under the box lid and used a 2 second delay. I cloned out the wire connecting the trigger to the camera that was suspended above in an opening above our foyer.

This is so funny, great work!

I had to login after a long time so that I could comment.

Btw, it would have been easier to just cut the body and put it in boxes :)
Just kidding I would never do that!

:-) Great background story - love it :-)
So glad other people also have "simple ideas" that turn into a marathon shoot! Good for you that you persevered.

Haahaa! Great job on this, Larry. I bought a different model from IKEA but they screwed up and sent me mostly the same parts you got there. :P Congrats on the great finish! :)

Aghhh to hear about all your hard work and to see a 1 in the votes is disheartening. But I'm sure you'll pull through, congrats on the HM!

Wow! Knowing you did this all by yourself makes it quite incredible. Great job! I hope Cooper gets lots of treats. He certainly added tons of points for the cute factor.

I love the stories that go with pictures. Thanks for telling us :)
