My son wanted to be a hi-tech robot Halloween costume this year, and it had to have a shrink ray. So my husband and I worked out an idea and did all the clever measuring that was necessary. He constructed the body parts and I decorated. We make a pretty good team.
We just used cardboard for the body and head, and dryer vent tubing for the arms and legs. The dish on the front were made from foil stove top liners (found at Walmart) and I purchased a bike light and some flashing LED lights (also found at Walmart).
You'll notice the top has a radar and shrink ray. He had a blast in this costume and we received TONS of compliments and lots of pictures were taken by strangers. The costume we completed the night before...we're crazy, I know!
I wanted to make a Robot costume reminiscent of a 50's Sci-Fi Movie. Since I wanted a Retro-metallic look, I made body and head all out of metal. I used about 1000 nuts and screws putting it together, when it was finished it weighed about 35lbs.
The head is connected to the body so that it can rotate around, and also easily removed. The eyes have pin holes cut into the eyes; this makes it easy to see out of, but hard to see in. The arms and legs are made from a metallic looking fabric to give it a industrial look, finished off with Black gloves and boots. I had a lot of fun making it. It was a bit hit at our Halloween Party.
I love Robots, but I wanted something different! I wanted to be a girl robot. I just took 2 boxes, painted them, cut out arm holes and a spot for me to see.
My head is in the bottom half of the robot costume, so the costume is huge! It is like 7ft tall. I glued on tap lights for effect and did a lot of 80s robot dancing. I also had a blast going trick or treating with the kids. They all stopped me and wanted to see what I was about. I even had to wait while people at there houses went in to get there camera.
It was my best costume ever. The downside was that heavy, my neck hurt the next day.
