Last Halloween I built a robot costume out of laundry detergent bottles, crutches, football shoulder pads, and several stoned days with a hot glue gun.

Step 1: Gather Materials

I spent a week raiding laundry mats trashcans in search of empty bottles gathering about 60 of assorted shapes and sizes. I also found two pairs of crutches (for stilts), and a pair of football shoulder pads.
Super job on that costume! <br>OMG... Robofett!!
And now someone needs to shuffle in one.
My friend told us a website: mylovembtshoes.com I find the products are very generous,and suitable for fall
This giant <a href="http://costumeshorizon.com/" rel="nofollow">Iron Robot</a>&nbsp; is looking fabulous and the article is fantastic to make a special robot at home<br />
I am soo going to use this on halloween! Congrats on your awesomeness and ingenuity.
Wow. I thought their were comments on this ible... I remmber commenting on this a while ago.... Anyway, you mention using crutches? How would I use crutches for stilts? I want to do this, because I have some old worn out brown leather crutches I got from a yard sale. I also Have an old pare of shoes. How would I make them into stilts?
Hope the bleach fumes didn't make you too woozy...unless that was what you wanted. :-)
You know, it wouldn't take much to change this into a cool Mark1 Iron Man costume for Halloween.
Pretty intense
I have aluminium crutches would this still work? and did you stand on the crutch handle? I would love to be this for halloween it is the only costume I have found that has given me inspiration to dress up :)
Each leg was made of two aluminum crutches. They where arranged upside down so that the piece that usually rests in your armpit would be on the ground. I cut one of the crutches all the way across about a foot from the top at one of the handles. The other crutch I left kinda long, I trimmed it at the point where it would meet my knee while I was standing on the block I used to lift my feet off the ground.and would be strapped to my lower leg. Wow, that sounds kinda confusing, I hope it works for ya.
how did you attach the crutches?
I drilled the crutches to two blocks of wood, one higher and one lower. It was a little heavy.
Very creative, very nice!
holy crap man, that is awesome!
hehe nice....buttholes
Well, you have to ventilate somehow
haha awesome im in the process of making an optimus prime costume for this comming halloween, ill bee sure to post it
