I've seen a bunch of ads this year for a Ghostbusters costume with an inflatable proton pack. These costumes are crap!
I don't care if you don't want to spend the time and effort on building a good quality costume, if I see anyone dressed up in one of these turds when I go out on Halloween, I swear I will glare at them disapprovingly! ***Oh, looking off to the right, I see that I'm insulting the sponsors! I would just like to point out that this paragraph is what is known as HYPERBOLE
and should not be taken literally. I worked my ass off building this thing and it rocks so much harder than those costumes, but I won't really insult anyone wearing one. I'll just upstage them with my awesomeness.
There are many resources for building a proton pack out there. I've got my slideshow
from last year, as well as a more detailed instructable on how to make a kid sized Proton Pack
, which could easily be scaled up to full size. I also recommend this instructable
, as well as gbfans.com
I picked up the flight suit from ebay member direct-pb
. This company really came through for me. The suit was good quality and very inexpensive.
