This homemade costume for adults entered our 2016 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Edward, the 'The Great Pumpkin' costume creator:

The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown cartoon and the
Live with Kelly show Halloween specials I was watching from the last 3 years and seeing a Pumpkin on stage and some other images from there Game of Thrones skit they did, sparked the idea and my imagination did the rest...

Took 10 months to make my idea a reality...

Built a cage with PVC pipe and use a backpack harness to wear the cage...Then made 42 pumpkins with plastic chicken wire to form a pumpkin frame then glued foam rubber to it...Cut a different face on every pumpkin and air brushed them with 3 different shades of orange and a dark brown...A lot of the pumpkins I made were not full circle but just the front half and attached those to the cage...
The Arms were pumpkins attached with a flexible vacuum hose ran though the center of the pumpkins...

The legs were pumpkins designed to wrap around my legs using Velcro sewed into a pair of sweat pants and the other side of the Velcro attached to the inside the pumpkins so they wouldn't slide down my legs...

The 2 flying pumpkins were attached to 2 extendable selfie sticks and those were attached to 2 RC car frames running on a pizza plate...

Took apart 5 battery operated torches and attached the fake fire components into 2 of the arms pumpkins and the Head pumpkin so it looked like they were breathing fire...
The last 2 fire components were use in the flying pumpkins so the flames were behind them...

4 of the pumpkins has a tablet running a scary video clip (repeated) behind the open mouth...
Most of the other pumpkins has a fake flickering flame for that Jack o Lantern look...
There are a total of 30 switches, 88 batteries and 4 tablets...
