Picture of LEGO Halloween Costume(using recycled materials)

Do you love Legos? Do you want to be one? Well now you can be one. I made these for halloween last year and it was a BIG hit. People are still taking about it. All you need is a few things from around the house, finding a better way to use things that would be thrown out.

This is a relativity easy project.

Step 1: Materials

DUDE! That is an awesome idea for a costume! I was going to be Optimus Prime but I only have a week to make a costume and this is perfect!

Thanks so much for the inspiration! I used the cut off bottoms of red beer cups to make my brick tops, and glued one on to a headband for a hat.

Here is a flipbook video of me in my lego block costume doing a silly dance. Cheers!

Thanks for the idea! I did this for me and my husband. Everyone loved it! Also a tip...I used hot glue to spell out LEGO on the top of the blocks...cool effect. :)
You guys look great! Except the arm flaps kinda take away from the costume a bit. Still very nice!

not the most frightening costume

This is a great idea!


One question, why the string to attach the bowls?  I would use glue and then you don’t have the little dangly bits of string on the bowls.


Also, you could make a stencil that said “LEGO” and paint each top like a normal Lego brick.


Again, this is a GREAT idea and thanks for posting it!

With just the glue, the bowls would get detached quickly. I sewed the bowls with the cord and put a printed LEGO logo over the visible part of the cords...

Here's my try.
I printed out 7 LEGO logos in a color printer. Everyone asked me where did I buy the LEGO stickers :).

I also used a red cap and put a LEGO piece over the top of the cap. That was funny too...

Great Instructable!!!  My wife and I made ours today, just in time.  They turned out great.  Thanks for the great instructions. 

Each block used 2 cans of spray paint. 

Have a great Halloween!!!

Its cool, P.S. If you ssearch up unitard on the internet, wear them, it looks better
 I wouldn't recommend that unless you live somewhere that is really warm at the end of October.  Otherwise you'd freeze your butt off.

Where I'm from, it's not uncommon to wear your winter coat to go trick or treating.
We have the EXACT opposite problem. . . it's suppose to be in the low 90's on Halloween. . . NINETY!!!! at the end of October?!?!  Too bad we can't split the difference.  ;)
 I hear that!  It was the worst when you were a kid here.. you'd make the best costume ever and no one would get to see it! lol
they have jackets on, how cold could it get?
I live where its insane to go trick - or - treatingwearing a jacket.
