Lightning McQueen is one of the main characters from the 2006 Disney-Pixar film "Cars." This talking race car, voiced by actor Owen Wilson, has also become a favorite Halloween costume for young children. You may purchase Lightning McQueen costumes at Halloween stores, but it is a fairly simple costume to create at home. Print out a picture of Lightning McQueen to refer to when making the costume to make the process a lot easier.
