This homemade costume for women entered our 2017 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Kelly, the 'Inspector Gadget' costume creator:

The best part about making this costume was coming up with the ideas for the hats and gadgets. I made two hats, one with a flashing beacon, arm with badge and an arm with a magnifying glass. The second hat had a “go go gadget copter”. I made it out of a USB operated fan and it actually spun around. The gloves were all a lot of fun to make. I make the top secret gadget phone on one hand and a laser pointer, screwdriver and flashlight on the other. I also made a “go go gadget arm” that had a grabber inside so the ends of the fingers pinched together.

How make the light beacon stay on the hat

#2 comment by Kelly April 17, 2019

I glued it into place using a heavy duty adhesive. However, I cut a hole in the top of the hat to access the battery panel on the bottom of the beacon first. Then just used the glue around the rest of the light.

What type of glue?

#4 comment by Kelly April 20, 2019

I made this costume a few years ago, so I can't remember the exact type of glue. I remember looking at the hardware storage for an adhesive that adhered to plastic and fabric.

what did you use for the arms? and how did you get them to stay up?

#6 comment by Kelly October 15, 2019

I used plastic tubing with 45 and 90 elbows and put cotton batting and chicken wire in the gloves. I think I used a small mason jar flat lid on the inside of the hat on each side to help give it support and bolted it through that. It was a few years ago, so I can't remember 100%. Make sure to get a big hat or it will be too small once you start attaching the arms.
