Homemade Lego Harry Potter Halloween Costume Idea

My family is a big fan of Harry Potter, so much so that this was the 3rd year my son wanted to dress up as Harry. So I came up with the idea to make the costume a little bit different... why not a homemade Lego Harry Potter Halloween costume idea? We watched lots of YouTube videos of Lego Harry Potter, so I decided to go for it!

The body of the costume was fairly easy... I just formed the top using cardboard, I covered it with a gray sheet, and then drew on the Gryffindor crest and the shirt design. Then I used cardboard to form the bottom of the costume, which proved to be quite a bit more difficult! I tried to include all the details Lego minifigures have, like the holes in the back of their 'legs', and their square, block-like 'feet'.

Coming up with the idea for the head was a bit more tricky. A friend suggested the bucket (I was going to attempt to make a head out of, you guessed it, cardboard! LOL). Then I spent days trying to come up with an idea for the hair... what to use that would be shiny and helmet like? Spray-foam insulation. I sprayed it onto the bucket, formed it a little after it was dry, spray painted it black and voila! Harry Potter has hair :-)

This homemade Lego Harry Potter Halloween costume idea was a lot of work, but totally worth it! My son (he is 9) loved it, and we got loads of compliments :)

Last year our boys decided that they wanted to be a marionette and a Christmas stocking. It is our tradition to allow them to choose whet they want to be and we will try to make it.

Marionette Costume:

Find appropriate clothes to wear and lock stocking.

Find a sturdy hat to wear that can be used to support the controls above their head.

Use a wire hanger and poke it through the hat so that is it about 6-8 inches above the hat.

We used flexible cork strips to be light but you can use small sticks for the control arms.

Tie a string from each stick to the wrists and ankles.

Paint face as needed.
