This homemade costume for boys entered our 2011 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Bonnie, the 'Convict Lego' costume creator:

My 9 year-old son, Kevin is wearing this Lego mini-figure costume. I love the creative challenge of Halloween and decided to take on his request to be a Lego man. I decided to paper mache the head. We started with ordering an inflatable Socker Bopper off Ebay as that was the head shape that I wanted. A lot of how-to sites have people making the head out of carved foam but I decided to attempt the paper mache instead. Once the head was dry, I covered it with light coat of wall spackle then sanded for smoothness. After I used a Dremel to cut out the eyes and mouth it was ready for paint. We covered the eye/mouth openings with a piece of screen which could also be painted. His body is folded cardboard painted with the Lego man graphics. I used foam can cozies to make the distinct Lego-man hands. Unfortunately it rained on Halloween and the Lego-man had to wear a clear poncho to stay dry!

Can you provide any more details about how you made the hands? My husband made a pair out of pvc for my son and we realized he wouldn't have use of his hands (oops). This looks like the perfect solution!

How did you do this?

Each hand requires 2 foam can cozies. The cozie that goes around the wrist had the bottom of it removed so it ends up being a short tube like shape. The second cozie also has the bottom removed, then it is cut lengthwise and shaped. It maintains the curve shape all by itself. You must cut a circle into the side for the hand to go through then hot glue to the tube shaped cozie. Then paint them yellow with acrylic craft paint. It was a bit difficult to squeeze his hands through the opening but they turned out cute!
