I love halloween for the simple fact that I get the best excuse to build stuff. While I’m working on this years costume, I thought I’d share 2 of my past favs.

2 years ago our department I was working with choose to do a YouTube themed costumes. We all did different takes on YouTube video and for me this was another chance to go all in. Starting from a random warehouse box, I started cutting, painting and attaching. In the end, I ended up with a box that stunk of spray paint and adhesive but from the outside, a pretty cool representation of a wacked out character from a show I grew up watching. Our team got 3rd place overall in the company contest and I think I got the doppelgänger trophy. Looking back it’s kinda creepy how much I look like him…

 

 

This was my all-time favorite build. Fully functional Instagram costume. A lot of fun went into this and it was kinda of a make-shit-up-as-you-go kinda thing.

Take a look at the totally corny video me and my wife made.
