TRON Cat costume

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on December 30th, 2010

It may not be Halloween, but why should that stop you from dressing up your cat in a TRON costume? It shouldn’t. If you have a dream, live it. Who cares if your cat never talks to you again. Some huge TRON fan is living the dream and has dressed their cat up in a light-up costume and posted a picture of it online.

The cat seems to like it since it can’t stop checking itself out in the mirror. Maybe the mirror is a gateway into the grid.

Father and son build Samus arm cannon for Halloween

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on October 24th, 2010

If you are looking to trick or treat as Samus from the Metroid game this year, you might want to pay attention to what this father and on team have created. 11-year old Joseph DeRose and his father have built Samus’ arm cannon. That’s the entire costume at the moment, but it’s an impressive arm cannon.

It features an array of LED lights with several settings, which is controlled by an Arduino. There’s also several sound effects from the Metroid games.

7 foot tall Halo Elite costume is scary

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on June 30th, 2010

The Halo aliens look scary on screen. I mean these are some bad-ass aliens, huge aliens, in armor. With guns. Everytime I play, I thank god I’ve never seen the real thing. Now I have. And I have wet myself.

This costume is so realistic, it’s scary. The animatronic Halo Elite costume was created by effects artist Pete Mander and could easily be used in a movie. It’s over seven feet tall and took countless hours to build. The man is a genius.

Steampunk Stormtrooper helmet

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on March 23rd, 2010

Had Luke worn this helmet when rescuing Princess Leia she would have said, “Aren’t you a little Steampunk to be a Stormtrooper?” It would have been a whole different movie had the Stormtroopers looked like this.

This Steampunk Stormtrooper Helmet is just plain awesome and menacing in a whole different way from the usual sterile white. That top area makes it look as if the Empire has been swapping some brains between troopers too.

Brick Pic: Starfleet on a budget

Brick Pic: Starfleet on a budgetThis is what happens when the economy tanks. Nerds who can no longer afford models of the U.S.S. Enterprise are forced to make them out of cardboard and bud light cans and dress up their dog in it.

Coming this Halloween to a town near you: A rotund tin-foil Borg ship with legs and a head towing the Enterprise behind. An Enterprise that lifts it’s leg to phaser trees and drops photon torpedoes on your lawn.

Working Game Boy costume plays Tetris

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on February 15th, 2009


This guy decided to turn himself into a Game Boy. He used a bunch of cardboard and a laptop is hidden inside that controls the screen. As you might expect and as he states himself, it’s a pretty fragile setup, but well worth it.

It even has the sound effects. The sad thing is that while in the Game Boy suit he can’t play himself. He can only watch others enjoy a game of Tetris. Pretty cool costume. You have to love Game Boy a whole lot to turn yourself into a walking handheld.

Master Chief costume is $629 of awesomeness

Posted in Halo by Conner Flynn on October 27th, 2008

Master Chief costume is $629 of awesomenessThis Master Chief costume is pretty freakin’ realistic. You have to have it, but spending $629 on a costume that you are only going to wear on Halloween night is insane. That’s why I recommend wearing it to the grocery store, the DMV, maybe to the movies. You’re gonna wanna get a lot of use out of it. Heck, maybe do some kids parties. Everybody loves Master Chief. It’s a fully licensed costume. You get a quilted jumpsuit/EVA armor, gauntlets, boot tops and a two-piece helmet. This thing has to be great for picking up gamer babes.
