This homemade costume for men entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Ross, the 'Angel of Death Grim Reaper' costume creator:

I built and wore the Angel of Death Grim Reaper Costume for the 2013 Nyc Halloween Parade. I wanted the Reaper to appear to be walked out of the fires of hell still simmering. I made the wings with real medical grade human plastic bones and bamboo. I used latex and cotton for the wings skin. The wings are rigged to a backpack frame. This frame also supports the LED Lighting, fog machines, a speaker and LIpo Batteries. I have over 350 LED flicking inside the costume simulating burning coal. I made the cloak out of several layers of different fabric. I also using hot glue for the cob-webing. The hands are also medical grade plastic bones and latex sewn onto black gloves. The scythe is made from foam, fiber glass, aluminum and wood. I used 6 foot platform boots, football shoulder pads, and a bike helmet to make the reaper stand over 68. I could only walk about 3 feet before the crowd would stop me and ask for pictures, many proclaiming I was best in show and praising me for my meticulous dedication to detail. Those who were not able to get my pic would chase me down the street to get me to stop. Hope you enjoy also.

How did you make the battery pack? I was thinking about the fog machine and how do you get the power to it? I'm so interested in this idea.
