My 5 year old son Chase is a huge Ghostbusters Fan. After Halloween last year we purchased a stock Ghostbuster costume online with the blow up backpack. After a year of catching ghost, the backpack had a blow out and would not hold air. So, we decided to make our own Ghostbusters Homemade Halloween Costume.
With several trips to the garage for nuts, bolts, a vacuum hose, parts from the Weedwacker, spray paint, a tap light, some donated wire from a neighbor and several internet searches for Ghostbuster photos, we came up with our version of a Proton pack.
Then he decided all Ghostbusters must have a Ghost Trap. So, several trips to the basement for a box, wrapping paper rolls, black electrical tape, an electric switch and more internet searches we made the ghost trap.
We finished up the costume by attaching a play walkie talkie to a belt, and used skating knee pads for the elbow pads.
The costume turned out so "COOL" he decided Ghostbusters would be the Theme for his upcoming 6th Birthday Party!
Comments for Coolest Ghostbusters Homemade Halloween Costume 10
I made this Homemade Ghostbusters Halloween Costume about 9 years ago. I've always loved Ghostbusters, and wanted a proton pack since the first time I saw it. This took me about 9-12 months to piece together. It has working lights in the pack, gun, and a blinking light on the trap just like the movie.
It is made from sheet metal, plywood, and cardboard mainly. And a lot of random junk from VCR's, TV's, computers, and half of radio shack. The proton pack's 4 main lights are actually 4 individual booklights mounted inside. There is a red bar on the back that has a laser inside of it that makes it glow red when turned on. And also a few leds here and there.
The gun has 3 red leds, and also has a laser beam come out of the barrel when switched on. This looks especially cool in smokey bars. You can see the beam go across the room! The jumpsuit itself has a lot of odds and ends that were in the movie as well.
I hope everyone enjoys this as much as I enjoyed building it!
Coolest Homemade Stay Puft from Ghostbusters Halloween Costume 15

Homemade Stay Puft from Ghostbusters Halloween Costume
This homemade Stay Puft from Ghostbusters Halloween costume started with a pre-made inflatable costume from Kmart. We spray-painted all of it white.
The head was made by using 1/2" soft green foam hot-glued together to create a cylinder. It was then covered with white fabric. The face was drawn on with marker and the eyes and mouth cut out. The hat and chest scarf were also handmade. The STAY PUFT letters on the hat were printed on the printer, sent through a Xyron sticker machine and then each individually cut.
This is a cool Ghostbuster costume with a homemade proton pack.
My husband worked on this for a little over a month. It has wires, and reflectors on it. The gun is made from a sword bought at the local Dollar tree and the overalls were made from a pair of men's painting coveralls. Everyone loved this costume.
