Halloween is coming, so here are my favorites for the best costume ideas.

1. The “invisible man” costume

The son of a photographer had this great Halloween costume idea.

2. Sea Witch Ursula of Disney Movie “Little Mermaid, Arielle”

She’s been stealing everyone’s voices all day

3. Van Gogh Self portrait costume

Cool costume of a picture and a beautiful illusion. In this case the self portrait of Van Gogh. Acrylic on man.

4. Lego man costume

A Lego man is known to everyone. That’s why this costume is so popular at parties. Especially because you recognize it immediately and does not have to be a geek. The costume has beebn built by a father for his 8 year old son. Here is his rough guide:

  • 3D model of the Lego Man
    Use Pepakura Designer to create and print 2D templates
    Transferred to EVA foam
    Cut out the parts
    Mounting with hot glue
    Very hot glue
    Spray a few layers of plasti dip
    A few coats and clear lacquer
    Legs connect with belt with cord and carabiner
    Arms on the body with elastic bands
    Head fastened with chin straps

7. Classic Rocket Costume + Boba Fett = Floating Boba Fett

Linkfilter member Reapre has looked at the classic rocket costume and then just made a floating Boba Fett out of it. The column of flame below hid his legs. Reapre was wearing platform shoes so he could get a couple of inches higher. Here is the English language documentation.

8. LED Emoji mask

The “Mask of Emotions” shows emoticons instead of your face. This helmet was created by the Digital Media Design Dept at Hongik University in Korea. The emoticon is controlled by the body actions of the wearer. Here is a little insight into the construction method. As you can see, you can not see through these holes. Well, who wants to be beautiful …

10. Head in the Box costume

Because the illusion with the wrong legs is so beautiful there is here again the Version with the severed head. After all, is Halloween and not a childbirth day.

11. Soldier’s costume

Great also the idea to dress up as tin or miniature figure. The strong color is particularly noticeable. The perfect costume for posing for photos. A great “living statues” idea.

A costume that you can tinker even on the last pusher, provided you have a thick umbrella.

 “Steve Machine”

Ok, ok, this is my costume for this year. And not just for Halloween or carnival, because “Steve Machine” you can book for your event.
