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

A word from Kris, the 'Giant Robot' costume creator:

This is my 9 foot tall home-made Giant Robot costume, appropriately named Giant Robot. It weighs 120 pounds, took about 250 labor hours to complete, and is mostly made of recycled building materials, hardware, and styrofoam from computer boxes. The top part is constructed on a tripper's backpack frame. The bottom is more complicated and involves hollow box pieces connected by rubber strips that act as joints. The feet are large reenforced blocks of foam with ski-boots mounted on them. They boost me up over a foot higher, and the larger costume extends about 2 feet over my head for a total height of nearly 9 feet. The largest version is nearly 10 feet tall, and i have plans for a 12 foot high version. Here are some statistics:

Max Height: 2.75 meters (~9 feet) (driver height 1.82 meters/~6 ft)
Max Reachspan (arm to arm): 3.00 meters (~10 ft)
Max Reachheight: 3.50 meters (~11.5 ft)
Shoulder Measurement:1.5 meters (~5 ft)
Foot Measurement: 0.60 meters (~2 ft each)
Total Max Weight (without driver): 55 kg (~120 pounds)
Total Max Weight (with driver): 145 kg (~320 pounds)
Right Arm: Working Claw (grasp range: .30 meters or ~1 ft)
Left Arm: Working Gun (pyrotechnics firing range 2-4 meters, 6-12 ft)
Mobility: fully jointed at elbows, shoulders, knees, ankles, waist
Accessories: chem & LED lighting, sound effects systems
