Homemade Lego Man Halloween Costume

The Homemade Lego Man Halloween Costume in the submitted photograph is of course a LEGO minifig. I made this LEGO MAN Halloween costume for my 8 year old stepson and it was a huge hit with everyone. It took me close to 2 weeks to complete the entire costume... but it was well worth the time.

The head started as a solid chunk of Styrofoam that I shaved down to the proper size and shape. After the shaving was complete, I added a thin layer of dry-wall mud to the outside and let it dry. After the first layer was dry, I sanded it smooth, added a second coat of mud, let that dry and then sanded it again. It was ready for painting then.

After painting, I cut out the mouth hole, (it was level with my stepson's eyes, so that is where all his vision came from) I lined the mouth with a thin black fabric that he could see through. I added a little paint and... tada one LEGO head!

As for the torso and legs, it was all shaped cardboard, hot glue and posterboard painted black. Some detail paint was added for the suit look. I had the back of the costume open up with Velcro, so he could walk right in for easy removal and it was easy to put on as well.

Coolest Lego Family Costume 9

Homemade Lego Family Costume

Homemade Lego Family Costume

We created this Lego Family Costume to wear for a local 5K Halloween Costume Race. We wanted to include our son and have really fun and unique costumes. We ended up deciding to go with one of our son's favorite toys, LEGOS!

The base of each costume consists of a solid color jogging suit, gloves, and knit hat. The "LEGO" portion of the costume consists of a large box, (our son's box was actually an empty soda case) that we cut holes into (6 for the adult costume, 4 for the child costume). We then pressed butter bowls through from the inside and secured them on the inside using strips of duct tape. We also cut a hole in the top for our heads, and holes in the sides for our arms.

Once the costumes were constructed, we spray painted the boxes red, blue, and yellow.
These costumes were extremely inexpensive, very unique, and were a huge hit at the race. Everyone loved our "LEGO family" costumes!

I made these for both my kids a few years ago. They won a prize for best costume at a local Halloween party. I cut holes in a cardboard box for arms, legs and head. I hot glued empty individual plastic fruit cups on it and spray painted them. It was so easy and just cost me the price of a couple cans of spray paint.

Coolest Homemade Lego Man Halloween Costume 16

I scaled one of those tiny Lego Men up to 8' tall x 4' wide x 2' deep and constructed this Homemade Lego Man Halloween Costume with my brother out of cardboard, chicken wire, paper mache and paint. The entire body and legs are made of cardboard with the head made of paper mache.

The concept came from trying to come up with an iconic character that everyone knows, at least somewhere in the recesses of their memory banks, and making it enormous. It also had to be something original. Icons seem to have the strongest impression upon people and this one is sure to make people laugh! The intent is really to walk around the city on Halloween night and generate a lot of energy with everyone that sees this thing coming down the street. Should be a lot of fun tonight!

Thanks for your consideration, it was a lot of work!

Coolest Homemade Lego Minifig Men Costumes 15

Homemade Lego Minifig Men Costumes

Homemade Lego Minifig Men Costumes

This year me and my fiance dressed as Homemade Lego Minifig Men Costumes. The idea was simple enough and we had plenty of time to make the costumes. For the head we used a sono-tube (from Lowes) and papermache of a 12 inch bowl. She painted on the face and we used a little bit of screen where the mouth is to see out of it.

The body was the easiest, pretty self explanatory and the legs were a pain. If you are going use cardboard use clear tape because duct+carboard=no hold.
