After winning first place 2 times and 1 time second place with previous costumes, we needed a new idea for this years local "Carnaval". Searching this site for a while, I found the Lego Minifigures. We decided to build something like that. After carefully measuring a real minifigure and scaling it so it would fit our size bodies, we cut all the pieces out of cardboard. After taping it together, we put paper-maché on it, so it would be stronger and so it would have a somewhat more smooth look too it.
When all of the 15 bodies, 15 heads, 30 legs and 60 hands were done, we all spray-painted the basic colors on them. After that we put some real creativity in it and hand-painted the grafix on the bodies and heads. We were really happy with the end result, and when competing in the contest, there was hardly any competition against our creations. So it was a ton of work, but surely it was worth it!
I'm searching for a new idea already for next year, and I hope we'll get somewhat close too this.
This Homemade Lego Boys Halloween Costume was easy and fun to make and got tons of compliments! First, find a rectangular box to fit your child. Make sure all sides are taped well. Using an exacto knife, cut out one of the side panels for feet to go through. Cut a large hole in the opposite end for the head to fit through. Next, cut arm holes in the two remaining sides. For the "pegs" I used round boxes. These can be found at any craft store.
For a larger or adult costume, use eight round boxes. I used six and it seemed to be enough. Super-glue the round boxes to the front side of the box. Then, using your color of choice, spray paint the boxes. I did three coats of glossy spray paint. Make sure to stand far enough away from the box so that the paint doesn't run. Get matching sweat pants and sweatshirt, and a hat. Easy and cute!

The adventures of Legoman originally started 3-4 years ago, when I decided to take my mother to one of Australia's largest Bush Doofs. Taking over 2 weeks, the Homemade Legoman Costume was made out of Styrofoam and PVC piping. The reaction was so grand over the 4 day event, that he not only sparked a massive photo frenzy, but was also invited to dozens of gigs afterwards.
Enter, the adventures of Legoman.
Over the last 4 years, Legoman has made over 50 appearances to parties, events, clubs, and bush parties all around the state. Sporting one hand specifically designed for holding bottles, and the other for cans and the head moves properly. More costume designs are currently in process.
We made this Lego Mini Figure costume for our 9 year old son for Halloween. The head was made from a cereal box rolled and duct taped. We covered with yellow thin fun foam on the head and hands. Cardboard and duct tape were used for the upper body and legs and then covered with construction paper.
It was light and comfortable but he didn't wear the legs on Halloween because it was slow walking and since the knees don't bend was impossible to do the stairs. We got lots of looks on Halloween. We really love this website as we get ideas every year for our homemade costumes.
My husband made the Lego head with a balloon and paper mache. He made the body out of cardboard with drywall compound on it. The zipper and Police badge is poster board he cut out piece by piece. The hands are Styrofoam my husband carved out and painted. The legs are cardboard and Styrofoam.
This Homemade Police Officer Lego Man Costume was a lot of work but our little boy, Spencer, loved it and so did all his friends.
