The two costumes have 3 batteries each with a total run time of 4.5 hours before needing to be charged overnight. Please email us if you need any more information about the costume.
BACKSTORY: This all started two years ago, Reko Rivera and Bobby Hartman created a wearable large iPhone costume with a real 37" LCD TV. An iPod was attached with a looping video of a real iphones screen in normal use. This time with the help of John Savio and John Matthews the team created yet another amazing rendition of the new iPhone 3GS. Savio loved the original idea but wanted to take it to the next level and make it thinner and actually work with user input! With some heavy researching and some solid determination Savio finally found a solution.
He managed to modify the software on the iPhone to allow a live dual image output to the large 42" LCD TV while maintaining the image in landscape mode. Reko originally came up with the idea and really pushed to see his vision come to life two years ago. This year John and Reko plan to compete in most of the local and online contest to win back all the money they invested in the costumes. The team has about $2000 into the two costumes and has no regrets!

My name is Karin Nickel and my 4 year old son Zachary wanted to be an iPhone for Halloween this year. At first I thought "How in the world am I going to make a homemade iPhone costume?" but after a trip to the fabric and craft store, everything came together.
The base is a large piece of leather folded in half with a slit for his head and elastic straps to keep it on his little shoulders. The icons and apps were printed on fabric, measured, and applied to the leather. The silver trim and Apple logo were made from faux leather and I used fabric glue to attach them to the leather phone base. I am glad I started early, because it took a long time to get everything perfect!
I hope you like my little guy's homemade iPhone costume - it was fun to make, and he was very happy with the final product! Thank you!
After the iPhone craze I decided it would be great to dress up as one. I bought two pieces of foam board (gray and black). I printed the icons large and pasted them on. I used foil for the apple on the back and silver duct tape for the outside rim.
I used regular duct tape to keep the two pieces together and as shoulder straps. I am an iPone owner and everyone who knows me thought it was a very fitting costume.
This year I decided to go with that old iPod Commercial where the people are blacked out and dancing with a lot of energy. The commercial also consisted of a colorful background and, of course, an iPod with white earphones.
I gave it a little twist, though; I replaced the old iPod with an iPhone. For the background, I just used a cardboard box which I spray-painted. I dressed all in black and painted the visible parts of my body black.
I hope you like my really homemade iPhone Commercial Remix costume.
