Lego Men Costumes for Kids

This homemade costume for kids entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Mike, the 'Lego Kids' costume creator:

This year I decided to make Lego men costumes for my kids.

I used cardboard for the bodies, which I covered in joint compound. I sanded them, primed them, and spray painted them w/ a gloss finish. Then I painted each design by hand.

For the heads, I cut circlular poster board, and wrapped it around w/ a thick poster paper for the face. The mouths were cut out as eye holes and covered w/ a black mesh. They were spray painted.

The hands were cut out from foam board, wrapped w/ foam on the sides. I also did joint compound and primer. Then the wrists were made from cereal boxes w/ pencils stabbed through them, then covered with foam and painted.

The legs were a nightmare for the kids to walk in! They move VERY SLOW in them. They were made from styrofoam that was covered in poster paper and spray painted. I rigged old shoes to the legs because the legs kept twisting sideways! I hot glued velcro straps to the legs that strapped in the back.

The hat & spiked hairdo were made from cardboard.

These were inexpensive to make (lots of hot glue & spray paint = burns, blisters, and paint fume buzzes/brain damage). They took a ton of my time and sanity.....but my kids really enjoyed the outcome. They got to be the center of attention and they won a radio disney contest vs. 300 other kids. It was all worth it!

I would love to but I wouldn't have the time to do it at this point. I have to make my own child's costume yet! You should try to do it yourself...make it family project. Good luck and thanks for the offer!
