My six year old son is into mini Lego figures and Lego's in general. Every year the kids decide what they'd like to be for Halloween and every year I get to design and make the costumes for them. this year he decided he'd like a Homemade Lego Warrior Costume.
It took me over 3 days to make this costume. First I had to frame it out of cardboard boxes. Then I used white poster board to cover the front of the costume up and to the legs too. I used masking tape as it was easier to paint over for the seams of the body. I then drew the picture from a mini lego onto the front of his body. The head was a little tricky. I used poster board to form the head and lots of tape then painted it yellow and drew the Lego face and eyes for him to look out of. His hands we just made them in shape of the Lego hand an he wore black gloves. This way he can still get his candy!!
I think the final project turned out decent and the look on his face was well worth the time spent on this costume!!
Concept: There have been other Lego costumes; however no others must be kept at least 200 yards from a playground or school. It is the small details that make a homemade costume great. Please note the tiny 6 pack abs, nipples, Lego logo on the underpants, thong on the rear, and above all THE BALL GAG.
The Construction of my Homemade Sexy Lego Minifig Costume: As all creators know, you can’t go to Home Depot to buy items like Lego hair. The hair is 8 layers of insulation foam glued together. A wire out of a hair drier was clamped to a car battery charger to make a hot wire cutter to carve. Then sanded, coated with water based sealer, and finally enamel paint. The head is cement form tubing spread to a larger diameter and wrapped with Y20 yoga mat type foam. Then computer fans were wired to 9 volt batteries for cooling. Then there is TONS of cardboard for the body.
This is my Lego Superman costume which I made for our recent Royal Wedding street party. It took 4 weeks to make (much longer than I anticipated). The body started out as a large box which I adapted so that it was the correct shape for the Lego mini-figure. The head was simply a plastic bucket which I cut a hole in the bottom. The hair started out as another bucket which I shaped and painted. I covered the body in blue cardboard which I obtained from work. The hands are made from cardboard tubes which I cut into the Lego shape and painted yellow. The mouth is cut out and covered with an old pair of the wife's tights allowing me to look out.
The only cost was £5 for the red cape which started out as a dog's blanket. It was very difficult to walk in but I was really pleased with the outcome. I hope you like it.
This is the Homemade Lego Man Halloween Costume I made. I sat and scaled out the measurements from an actual minifig. The whole thing is constructed from cardboard, foam, duct tape, and camping mats. You look through the mouth. The leopard print is duct tape. I looked through a boatload of paint schemes and picked the ones I thought were best for comedic purposes. It stands pretty tall so doorways were kinda hard but my buddies ran blocker for me. With no one in the costume it can stand on its own.
The look on kids faces were priceless on Halloween when they came to the door.
