I have had many requests on how to make this costume. So, I'm going to attempt to walk you through the process. I'm sure you might be able to find easier ways to create it, but this is how I did this one. I hope this helps you! Sorry for not documenting this project with more photos. Should have enough for you to have a good understanding. If you have questions, please post them and I'll try my best to answer. Thanks!
This costume took me around 40-50 hours and roughly $100 to make.
What you will need:
-Cardboard -2 Yellow & 4 White Poster boards -Acrylic Paint (Blue, Light Blue, Black, Yellow, and White) -Styrofoam -Masking Tape -Screen -1 Blue Long Sleeve Shirt -Lots of Gorilla Glue (2 - 18oz bottles) -Paint Brushes -Small Hand Saw -Sand Paper -1 Painters stick
The First step I took was to try and scale an actual Lego. Here are some pics showing a poor but effective way to scale the costume. As you can see, both pics don't match in height... but again this gives you a good enough idea of scale.
On the first pic, you can see two rows of numbers. The first row, is pixels in the photo. Each pixel equals 1.5 inches. In the second photo, each pixel equals 1.2
