Introduction: The Justice Lego League of America

Based on Kaged Kombat's design. We tweaked his design of the Lego Face/Head and we created our own body. I also made lego hands to fit the costume. We used 12 inch cement tubes for the head; Large home depot boxes for the body; and Large unwanted boxes from the local stores. I will post a future instructable on how to make the body and hands.

Last Halloween we won for best costume in the group category in the Trick or Treat 5k Run/Walk; we were dressed as Pacman and Ghosts. This year I decided we should be Lego people with a twist--The Justice League. The 5k was held yesterday 10/30/10 and we took first place again in the Group Category. It was horrible running in this because it was very hot, with little air coming in. In the end it was worth it because we made it into the local newspaper and everyone wanted a picture with us!

How did you ventilate the heads?

Ventilation is through the eyes and mouth. However we made a slit on the lego logo on top. I'll post a picture

what did you use for the batman ear piece?

author
jabronie25 (author)mr.cardboard2012-10-26

Cardboard, just shape it like a triangle. You can also use posterboards. It's very simple.

Man! What a great idea! How did you make those Lego hands work? What did you make it out of? because they look perfect!

author
jabronie25 (author)blorsh2011-10-25

The hands were made out of cardboard. I rolled it into a cylinder and made claws out of another piece and glued it on to hte end. I can draw it out for you if you want.

Thanks!

Hi there
I am creating a lego batman costume for Halloween and was wondering how you made the hands and what you covered the eye holes with.

Your help would be very much appreciated

The hands were made out of cardboard. Basically rolled it up into a cylinder and made attached the claws to the end. I can draw it out.

For the eyes, we used meshed screen like the ones for hte screen doors and we spray painted it white

Hi guys,

Did you find that the heads kept turning or did you build some form of mechanism to prevent this? Oh... And you all look awesome!

author
jabronie25 (author)mjones162011-06-19

Thanks alot!

As for the heads, the fit was snug. That is where the foam comes in as insulation and for fitting. Inside the head, you insert sponges, to act as support and cushion for the head. Because there is ample room inside the tubing, you can keep adding more...or take out the sponge to fit to your own liking.

The image upload is not working for the comment boxes, but i just uploaded the photo of how the inside should look like. Its the last photo in the slide show. Hope that helps!

Great for a group costume! And It looks you had a lot of fun. Also It looks kinda cheap and not very hard to make, wich is very important if you want a group of people to get dressed up similar.

I'm voting for you in the constest ;)

Thanks for you input! Yes it was fun making it, actually designing it was really fun too. WIth the help of some guides, you can modify it to your own liking. Painting and putting the details was the fun part.

Materials are cheap too. You will probably spend less than 20 dollars per person, that's if you dont have some of the supplies already. Other than that, this is the most fun item I've built so far

i like the green lantern lego person. Is it Hal Jordan?

author
jabronie25 (author)homestuck2010-10-31

Yes it is, we were suppose to make it John Stewart, but the brown we used didn't really match the other lego characters.

homestuck (author)jabronie252010-11-01

Very impressive! I was sweating heavily when I was just walking around, can't imagine how bad it would have been running.

author
jabronie25 (author)Kaged Kombat2010-10-31

Thanks alot man! Yeah we had to change your head design a bit to allow air through the head, so we added a small ventilation system, which actually worked. That's why we couldn't do the round edges with the foam.

I was wondering how you built your body? Big props to you with coming up with the whole idea though, wouldn't have happened without your instructable

Yeah running was really hard, I run all the time, but this one was tough. Running in our Pacman costumes were amazingly easier than this. The heads alone kept us from running a slow jog.
