Coolest Lego Minifigure Halloween Costume 8

I was scourging the internet for some costume ideas and I came upon a couple of Lego minifigure costumes. I thought that they looked pretty good, but many of them didn't look right. Some of the heads did not look right and a few were without legs.

Now when I do something, I tend to go all out , which is exactly what I did with this Lego Minifigure Halloween costume. I actually started with the hands which are made of nothing more than poster board, a little bit of Styrofoam for support, duct tape, glue, and a nice coat of spray paint. My hands actually fit inside of them so I had complete control as far as rotation goes.

Next, I did the torso, which is cardboard, posterboard, duct tape, and glue. The painted suit is a replica of an actual Lego piece that I had. Honestly, I was contemplating going without the legs since it would be kind of hard to walk in them. In the end, I figured that it would help finish the costume and I could deal with it for one night so I made them out of cardboard and duct tape. They were held up with some rope around my neck and secured in place to my legs with some elastic. Although the picture doesn't show it, I did have holes in the back of the legs like real lego minifigures.

To me, the head is what makes the costume so I spent a lot of time on it. I shaved and sanded some Styrofoam to get the curved top and bottom part. The skeleton is made of Styrofoam and the outside is made of poster board. The mouth is actually black screen so I could see perfectly fine the entire night, even in a dark bar. I also had a vent in the top of the head to let some heat escape.

Making the face was a lot of fun since I had so many options. I decided to go with a sly kind of smirk for my guy. I also added the 5 o'clock shadow to give him more character, but more so since I can't grow one in real life.

All in all, this costume cost me about $30 to make and 12-15 hours of construction. I had a lot of the supplies, so most of that cost is spray paint, paint, and a sheet of Styrofoam. It turned out to be a great hit wherever I went and I got a lot of compliments on it. I do plan on making one more next Halloween for my friend and changing the outfits to pirate Legos.
