Intro: Lego Zombie Minifigure Costume
Check out my Etsy page for more about my LEGO minifigure costumes.
My son wanted to be a Lego minifigure for Halloween. Our family participates in the annual Denver Zombie Crawl every year, so he and I determined it might be fun if he was a Lego zombie. The annual event draws thousands of people to downtown Denver.
Step 1: Painting and Finishing.
The costume was fabricated primarily out of foam rubber and hot glue.
The face has a removable portion to reveal the zombie face.
My son wore black pants and shoes, and a blue shirt to blend in to the areas that may show where the costume pieces connected.
Step 2: All Done, Have Fun!
My son had a blast wearing this at the Denver Zombie Crawl and enjoyed all of the attention he recieved. We shot a little video to show off his costume to his out-of-state grandparents.
On Halloween, my son decided that he would rather visit the Lego store in Denver (about 45 minute drive one-way) in his costume than trick-or-treat all over the neighborhood. The staff's jaws dropped and were happy to let us take photos in the store, they even moved a minifigure statue from the window so that my son could pose with it.
When we took the photos, my son asked me to help remove the head. I thought he may have had an itch or something, but he told me that he just wanted everyone to see how happy he was. My heart melted.
