Homemade Cat Woman and Robin Lego Minifig Costumes
My idea for this Halloween was Lego themed. So we decided on a Homemade Cat Woman and Robin Lego Minifig Costumes. I got the inspiration from your site.
The Lego heads were first. I used foam board, cereal boxes and freezer paper. I cut out a circle to fit mine and my husbands head and used the cereal boxes to give support to the top and bottom of the Lego head. The wax paper was to cover up the cereal boxes and give me an easier time painting the face. Lego Robins hair was drawn out and painted black, took me a few trial and errors to get it just right, then I painted it black.
Cat Womens mask was made out of 2 black poster boards and painted over with a gloss. The eyes were made out of mesh from my sons old baby gate, painted and tape.
The bodies were made out of a large cardboard box I got at Menards. I fitted it to our frame and taped together then paper mached the tape to be easier to paint. Then I drew the body and painted it.
Robins green outfit and yellow cape where bought at the second hand store. I already had black leggings and long sleeve black shirt.
These costume took 2 weekends to make, had so much fun making and wearing.

Homemade Lego Batman, Robin, Joker and Penguin Costumes
There have been many people who have gone as Lego people, but we wanted to do something that, to our knowledge, has never been done before. After thinking of the many different types of Lego themes, we decided on Lego Batman characters! And so, after brainstorming on how to actually accomplish this feat, we began our Homemade Lego Batman, Robin, Joker and Penguin Costumes.
We bought craft foam and cut O shapes and a circle to start the heads. We spaced them out and glued them to dowel rods to make a basic frame. We then wrapped it with window screen to form a backing and paper mache'd over it and painted it.
For the bodies, we cut out cardboard, duct-taped it together and painted the design as close to the real Legos as possible. We connected the legs to the bodies by creating a hinge system out of cardboard, PVC pipe and dowels.
Overall, these took about 250 hours to make, and about $200 (mostly in craft paint and duct tape). These were a huge hit on Halloween and I and three college friends had a blast making them!

I made this Lego Batman Halloween Costume from scratch. I use 1" thick foam from Walmart and glued it together with a hot glue gun. Got the idea from the video game. I was about 8'5" tall and very wide but the foam made it easy to walk in and move around.
My eye sight is through the mouth area. I used thin fabric for the eyes and placed two blue glow sticks behind them so the eyes would glow blue. The black was just spray painted on the white foam and the detail was cut out of felt pieces. It has a cape and there are some features on the face that can't be seen in the photo, ex. the nose.
