This homemade costume for boys entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from John, the 'Pacific Rim Gypsy Danger' costume creator:

My 9 year old son and I enjoyed the Pacific Rim movie. He wanted to be Gyspy Danger the main robot of the movie.

I grabbed some art work off the internet and bought multiple foam mats from Five and Below.
The entire costume is free hand, made with 90% foam mat, little bit of card board, little bit of nylon webbing, little bit of velcro, little bit for styrofoam, some leds, some wire, some tape and a lot of glue and patience. I also took a Master Chief Helmet from the Halo costume and used the visor for the new costume.

The costume was made in under a month.

How did you make the feet? Was he able to walk in the costume. This is awesome by the way

Hey guys!
For the feet, I first started with a pair of used sneakers that barely fit.

Then I went through and layered foam board until I had the height that I wanted.


I had to apply the putter skin which was all foam as well but more like the play mat foam.
