LEGO Man Costume

This is the Ninjago costume I made for my son’s sixth birthday last year. It was a big hit with our little guests, everyone had their picture taken with him and he was guest of honour throughout the festivities.

I used packing boxes, yellow duct tape, polystyrene for the head and spray paint. The whole costume took roughly a week to create, I didn’t count the hours but I would guess at 15 or so. The hardest part was creating the head, I used a water dispenser for the shape and carved polystyrene to create the curved top and bottom. The polystyrene was a nightmare, I am not sure I will ever work with it again! The pieces went absolutely everywhere and stuck to everything that passed by.
