Coolest Operation Game Costume

This is my Operation Game costume. It was so fun to make. All the pieces are removable and interactive. I had such a good time bringing it to work and showing all my peers. I work in an environment where everyone gets crazy with their costumes and this year I went all out.

First I got a cardboard box and I drew the design on it and cut out the spaces for the bones. Then I painted it and made room for my face. I wanted to get a light up nose but couldn't find one so I just used a regular clown nose and put a flashing light inside. Then I found a wig and made a headband with big ears to look just like the guy on the game. I also made and painted all the bones inside - attaching them to the costume with a string so that when people would grab the bones with the tongs I could pull them back.

All and all, it took about 2 weeks and about $100-$200 bucks to make. It was a very rewarding experience and the next challenge is how I am gonna top this next year.

Coolest Homemade Operation Game Adult Halloween Costume Idea 8

 Homemade Operation Game Adult Halloween Costume Idea

Homemade Operation Game Adult Halloween Costume Idea

When I was little I loved playing the game Operation with my brother and sister! So for Halloween one year I thought WOW, a Homemade Operation Game Adult Halloween Costume Idea would make a great costume!

My mom handmade my body suit! She made the costume "plump", just like the guy on the game! Even my feet and hands were made to look just like his! I found a black wig that matched his hair exactly!

My brother helped to construct the metal that surrounded the different pieces that you try to pull out so when you played me ( and oh boy did everybody want to play me!) I actually buzzed. He had them all wired and people would use metal salad tongs to try and pull out the "funny bone" etc. and if it hit the metal I buzzed (everyone would freak out) and my nose lit up! It was so much fun to wear. My mom even made a giant AA Battery (Duracell) and attached it to my back!

I really looked just like the game and a lot of people played Doctor that Halloween! LOL

Coolest Homemade Operation and Surgeon Costume 5

Homemade Operation and Surgeon Costume

Homemade Operation and Surgeon Costume

This is our homemade Operation and Surgeon couples costume we wore to our Halloween party this year.

The Surgeon was really simple. It took a quick trip to GoodWill to purchase scrubs. I made the badge on the computer & borrowed the stethoscope from our daughter.

Operation guy was a little more involved, but still relatively easy. To get the "skin" color right, I dyed my own white long-sleeve T-shirt & white scrub pants in tea (pretty easy process - Google it). Next, I painted on the red areas outlined in silver & the pictures to look like the game board. I then used iron-on transfers (the kind you print yourself) to make the words & then ironed them on. The game pieces were made from 1/4" thick craft foam & stuck to the suit with Velcro (so they would come off). The costume was completed with a simple red clown nose.

The idea was a big hit and we even won Most Creative Couple at our party.

Coolest Operation Game Costume 2

Homemade Operation Game Costume

I thought about what childhood game could I make into a costume. Operation Game!

I started by making a wooden box. I then cut out all of the holes for the different pieces. I cut out of light weight metal a smaller version of the hole in the wood. I then made fiberglass bowls in each shape to hold each piece. Then I attached each bowl to the respective metal shape. Then the metal to the wood.

I painted "Sam" on the box, attached all the wiring, Buzzer and Nose that lights up. To hold it up I made a harness out of metal and foam padding.

This is the Homemade Operation Game Costume my friend Brett and his wife Megan made this year that won our local contest. It is a scale model of the child's game "Operation"

He was inside it and the whole game worked like the original did. The tongs were wired and it you weren't careful taking the bone out, the nose lit up and the buzzer went off. It was the best costume Ive ever seen.
