This homemade costume for men entered our 2018 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Alexandre, the 'Alex 4.5 Robot' costume creator:

Iím a student of Visual Arts and Design. As I was taking apart a used electric scooter to build a different vehicle, I noticed some of the body parts looked like robot arms and legs, so I put them away. When I saw a video of Adam Savage with a 9 foot tall robot, and I thought this was the kind of thing I could build.
So this summer I started by building an articulated skeleton made of ABS pipes, and then dressed it up with scooter body parts, car parts, plastic containers. I used pictures of bodybuilders to make it look organic as well as robotic.
My legs seemed too short for that body, so I made 12 inch high shoes using old ski boots. The head was made with the best scooter parts and flashlights for the eyes.
Once finished it stands 9 ft 10 inches high, and weighs 110 pounds but it fits comfortably so I can move freely, walk, dance, shake my head or nod.
On the night of Halloween, kids loved it and the adults were mostly speechless.
Since my school is also oriented towards Film, I offered my robot as a character for student short films. Iím sure it can be useful for the next few years.
