What can you get with some pipe insulation, duct tape, paper mache, sticks of wood, a bunch of paint, and an old backpack? The largest E.T. costume in the world! This E.T. costume measured out at about 12 feet tall and made it all the way to NYC. It was shown on Channel 11 and also the NY1 Channel on Halloween 2011.

The E.T. Costume was made in the fashion of a backpack puppet, fully equipped with movable arms! It took about 40 hours to construct but was sure fun doing it. The best part was wearing it around NYC and seeing people’s reactions.

Here is what the costume looks like in motion:
