|Costume type:||Costumes for Men|
This homemade costume for men entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Jake, the 'Robocop' costume creator:
I began needing a creative costume for an 80s party I was invited to. Since I'm bald and the 80s were all about the big hair I felt stuck. I finally remembered one of my all time favorite 80s movies robocop, and how he was actually bald. I researched until I decided cardboard would be inexpensive as well as allow me to be as creative as my mind and the cardboard would allow. It cost under $25 to finish and over a month of time. Lots of late nights. Layers of cardboard being carved for all the details and a lot of hot glue burns later, I finished the night before my first party. I won best costume at two parties and hope to enter into a few more. Hope you enjoy seeing it as much as I loved bringing it to life. I can move comfortably In it and all legs and arms are hinged just as his original was. Thanks for your consideration.
