My husband and I made this homemade Robot Halloween costume idea in an afternoon. We had an old computer that we didn’t use any more, so we took the insides out and hot glued pieces of the computer to two boxes that we spray painted gray. We used dry duct for his arms and decided against using the ducts for his legs because it made it difficult for our 4 year-old son to walk.

We also added a strobe light on the back for a cool affect. It was actually just a hand-held 4th of July torch that we taped the “on” switch down. Surprisingly, the batteries lasted all weekend! The reflector eyes weren’t only a neat touch, but also a nice safety feature as well. We added two more reflectors on the back of the costume for safety. I also found pictures of dials and gauges online to add to the robot look. It was rather easy to make and our son LOVED it!

First Robot CostumeI Have Ever Seen

This costume is ingenious Lana! I think this is the first robot costume I have ever seen. Definitely way better than what you would spent for $30 on at a department store costume. Homemade costumes are always way more awesome and take a lot of thought and creativity from the parents. Good job!

High Kick...

Hi All... This year I took on the mammoth task of creating my own walking talking ED-209 robot from the Robocop movies.

I constructed the whole thing off a scale drawing I drew up, making the framework from wood and covering in card. Although not identical to the movie version, it is a dead give away.

I added additional lights to the costume to make it seem like it was coming to life when they were turned on. I also had a motorized Gatling gun with flashing LED's to simulate the gun firing. I used glow sticks to create glow in the dark wiring on joints and exposed areas. They aren't very visible in the photos but believe me they we're effective in the dark.

Have a look at my photos and the video I have posted on youtube and let me know what you think



Thanks

Conor

Hi Guys,

This costume is in storage in Ireland.

If someone was prepared to collect I would happily part with it, but be aware this is MASSIVE!

Requires a van to transport

Thanks

Coolest Homemade Robot Halloween Costume Idea 56

This homemade robot Halloween costume idea was based on a 1950's genre. I have included a small box on the front of the robot with a voice changer to make me sound like a robot and many sound effects.

There were several lights all over my robot costume. On the top I have a bowl filled with a drink, I had a long tube run through to the inside so that I could drink the drink. On the side of my costume I had a round tube filled with my soda and another long tube run into the inside of my costume so I could also drink that.

It took me about a month to put together this homemade robot costume together, and about one hundred dollars. I used; a big carpet tube as the main body, a laundry basket, card board, metal duct work, a glass bowl, lights, a voice changer, and a few other small things.
