First, I would like to thank you for viewing my instructable.
And, if you enjoyed it, please give me a vote!
When Ghostbusters first came out in 1984.
I just got out of the US Army.
My older brother had originally made this costume back in 1984.
26 year ago.
So, today I tried to duplicate what I remember from then.
As, I thought it was a very good costume.
I believe he took 1st place at some costume parties.
The costume is fairly easy to make.
Costume total cost was under $25.
There are many different ways to do things, so I am showing
you the way I did it.
If you know of a better or cheaper way, let us know.
( I believe, there may be a Ghostbusters III coming out in 2012!)
Now onto the instructable...

Step 2: Transferring The Ghostbuster Logo To The Foam
That way, I get everything in correct proportions.
Get the Ghostbuster logo above.
I converted the logo to a vector in Coreldraw.
I made a transparency with my laser copier.
Then I projected it onto the foam.
I used a red sharpie to outline the logo.
Now onto the next step...
