Schneider wrote in a Reddit post that he got the idea for the costume after he went to CVS to buy a pack of Altoids and got an extra long receipt along with his mints. He scanned it into Photoshop, cut it into 42 individual pieces, printed and glued them onto pasteboard and then taped them together with yardsticks.
The whole process took about four hours, Observer reported.
“Do you take gigantic coupons?” he asks one worker in the video, who laughs and replies, “That is awesome.”
Because Schneider scanned the receipt using Photoshop, the ExtraBucks (CVS customer reward) barcode on the costume version could be scanned by a cashier. The test came when he finally reaches the checkout counter. Schneider gave the cashier a few bags of Halloween candy and asked her, “Can you scan my CVS bucks?”
"Oh my gosh, does that work? Can I try it?" the cashier asked, laughing when it did work.
By the way, Schneider got another long receipt.
