My daughter wanted to have a Homemade Mad Scientist Costume for Halloween. It was very last minute, like 5 hours before! SO I came up with a great idea. I didn't have a lab coat or time to find one so I got a large adults long sleeve white shirt at the craft store and a sheet of sticky foam.
We cut the shirt up the middle on the from and cut buttons and a pocket out of the sticky foam, we put some markers in the pocket before sticking it down. Then we used black face paint to make the "coat" look like an explosion had happened in the lab. We teased her hair and sprayed it heavily. Then put black on her face. We added dish gloves and safety goggles (we got for a dollar at the dollar store). She wore a shirt that was headed for the trash and a tie also from the dollar store.
For added affect after dark I broke open a couple of glow sticks and poured on the jacket. She got compliments all night!

Homemade Mad Scientist Lego Man Costume
This is a completely homemade mad scientist Lego man costume made as close to scale as possible. The materials used are primarily cardboard and Styrofoam. The paint job is made to look exactly like the mad scientist Lego minifig from a collection.
The mouth is made from black panty hose such that I can see through. The hands and legs are fully mobile. The legs are connected to the body using a wooden bar to allow for rotation and some elevation so it doesn't hit the floor. There is of course a Lego logo on the back. I have additional photos that follow the construction of the head and body. Sharpies were used for the detail on the body and right upper leg.
