This homemade costume for babies entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Ryan, the 'Baby Mech' costume creator:

I have had this costume planned for several years, long before I had a child. The inspiration was a computer game I played in high school. When we found out we were having a baby boy, I got to work. I sketched out the rough designs probably two months before he was born. With so much baby stuff coming in the mail, we had plenty of boxes with which to work. I built a frame for the body out of PVC and wrapped a cardboard shell around it, then cut and sculpted the other pieces out of cardboard, with some foam board details.

I was worried my 6-month old would be scared of the costume and cry when I put him in it, but he got a kick out of it. It's hard to put on (my wife has to help) and not very comfortable, but overall it turned out better than I could have hoped for.
