My husband hates dressing up for Halloween. But we were invited to a work party, which got canceled towards the end of this project. He got put in charge of finding alternative opportunities to wear these costumes.
He loves his old Legos and I thought he would get excited about being one. I was right, he really gives the costume some personality. I like to make sure he looks dashing even in a yellow head, so he got to wear a tux styled body.
The construction of the Lego Guy Costume was a fun process. My favorite was the hands – paper, foam and a lot of tape. Functionality was key! The body presented difficulty upon painting it as it is constructed from foam insulation and it melts when sprayed with spray paint. This was fixed with a trip to the hardware store by my husband who picked up more tape and an acrylic spray paint. The buttons, bow tie, and logo (on to of the head) were cut paper and added after construction with a clear, glossy acrylic layer. I left the eyes and mouth holes open for airflow and visibility.
