hey guys this is my journey to make my first costume. I started by getting an old shirt filling it with towels to make a form to build off of.

Step 1: EVA Foam Base

I bought some EVA foam from home depot and started putting it together as a base form stuck it all with hot glue and tape.

Step 2: Buzz Light Year

I wanted to get sharper edges on the design of the costume so i added 2ply chipboard for some finer detailing.

Step 3: Space Ranger!

Put together some armer for my arms and go a dome as a helmet. (18" dome bought at TNT plastic world on Canal Street NY)

Step 4: "Buzz Lightyear to Star Command, Come in Star Command"

Things really started to come together after a few coats of paint. And after a little bit of Photoshop got the decals to the right scale. (printed on sticker paper at staples for $3.30)

Step 5: "you Got a Friend in Me"

I had a wonderful halloween my sister nephew and girlfriend (jessie, and yes we made her costume from scratch as well). I know the costume isn't exactly Buzz but it got a lot of attention and was super fun putting together and made me feel like a kid again! the entire build took two weeks start to finish working on it over the weekends and after work. P.S. the head cap is a book sock it did the job well.

<p>Great looking costume, one of the best Buzz's I've seen. Where did you get the dome? I'm having great trouble finding one.</p>
Great costume. how did you attach the dome to the costume?
<p>I wanted the dome to be able to open and close so i got 1/2&quot; nuts, bolts and washers from homedepot and have it attached to the base shoulders and that allowed it to rotate open and closed. </p>
<p>These costumes look amazing. Great job!</p>
<p>thanks we worked really hard. thanks for the support!</p>
