Coolest Lego Halloween Costume 7

Lego Halloween Costume

My boys are extreme Lego enthusiasts. Since there are no minifigure costumes available commercially, I made one by trial and error.

The head portion of the Lego Halloween costume was made by cutting sheet Styrofoam for the top and bottom sections and connecting them with a cylinder of poster board. I paper mached over the entire head section and glued a round Styrofoam disc on top.

After it was painted, the mouth was cut out and fine window screen taped inside the opening. (The mouth section is where you can see through). Glossy paper sunglasses were then glued on.

Since I wanted the costume to appear very square, I used a box for the shirt section. I cut it off just under the arm holes so it would be easier to move. I hot glued 1/2" upholstery foam to the sides and top of the box and glued the seams of the foam as well. Since I wasn't sure about painting the foam, I sewed a "box" out of fabric using the foam box as a guide. The zipper and pocket detail was applied with iron-on laundry tape.

The pants were also made with 1/2" upholstery foam and hot glued on the seams. Once again, a fabric cover was made using the size of the foam as a guide. Since a Lego minifigure has very square legs and form, the pants section does not indent at the waist. I hot glued wide elastic for suspenders to hold up the pants.

To finish off the costume, my son wore a long sleeve shirt that matched the color of the top and I made some yellow mittens to resemble the Lego hands.

Fantastic - Really Original
by: Chris J.

This goes well beyond the Lego brick costumes I've seen. Never would've even occurred to me do go the minifigure route. Really well executed - I have a feeling there will be many look-alikes out there next year!

Coolest Lego Costume 6

Trying to encourage my children to be creative at Halloween, I sent my 4 year old upstairs to find a toy that he likes to play with. He came back with a Lego. Pretty simple, really.

For a Lego costume you will need a few boxes, floral Styrofoam discs for the "buttons," a few cans of bright spray paint and a lot of Gorilla Glue made this a quick and easy project.

The blue block is open at the top to store all the treats - no bag to haul around all night. Last thing to add is the straps to keep his arms free.

Coolest 4' Tall Lego Costume 5

4' Tall Lego

I took a large box, painted it yellow, and cut out 8 circles to fit store bought potato salad containers. I then cut a hole for my head, a couple for my arms, and a big opening in the bottom for my legs. I printed a "Lego" logo off the internet and taped them on the bottom of the plastic containers.

Note: it is impossible to sit down in this 4' tall Lego costume!

You are such a clever person. I'm guessing the LEGO people will be calling you soon for a spot in their ads.

I've seen a ton of Lego costumes on the internet-none as cool or easy as this. The best part is the word "Lego" on the front. GENIUS

I came up with this Lego costume for my two year old. I found things around my husbands shop, put it together and then my brother in law painted it for me. I think I did pretty good.

This year I am making my son a robot from things around my husbands shop again!
