A word from Janet, the 'The Cast of the Lego Movie' costume creator:
My son, Leland, loves the Lego movie and wanted to be Lego Batman for Halloween and wanted the rest of the family to dress up with him. He wanted Dad to be Emmet, Mom to be Wyldstyle (Lucy), and his baby sister to be Vitruvius. These costumes can't be bought so my husband and I decided to make them. I already have a lot of craft supplies so the only things we really needed to buy were the tube for the heads, some bolts for the hands, duct tape for the design on Wyldstyle's clothes, and some fabric for Emmet's pants and Vitruvius's cape. Overall I think we spent somewhere between $25 and $30. We made the heads using concrete form tubes, paper mache, paint, and a little mesh for the eye holes. For Wyldstyle's clothes we duct taped the design onto a black sweatsuit and black sneakers. For Batman's body we made it out of cardboard and paint. The cape was fabric attached to the rest of the body. Emmet wore a blue shirt and orange safety vest. His Piece of Resistance was made out of cardboard and paint, and his pants were sewn from orange fabric. We printed an Emmet's name tag and put in into a badge holder we already had. Vitruvius is just a baby so she did not wear a head like ours. I crocheted her a hat with a beard and tied more yarn on for the hair and beard. Her headband was some ribbon. She wore a tie dyed shirt, jeans, green socks, a cloak made from an old white sheet, and a sparkly cape made from some fabric we bought. Her dum dum staff was made from paper mache and paint. The hands were cut from a heavy duty cardboard tube we already had and we put bolts through them so we could hold onto the hands. Vitruvius's hands were made from cardboard tube glued together and attached to her cloak. The kid's also had Lego head treat buckets made from extra pieces of tube.
