I was a Ghostbuster for Halloween! Links only, sorry!



The and gun are made from foam, hardware, tubing, and computer parts. I carved the foam with a styrofoam tool (essentially a hot wire) and glued everything together. Once all that dried, I painted the foam black, leaving the wires and computer chip exposed.


The suit is painter's coveralls spraypainted brown. The patches are handpainted. I got the belt, the elbow pads, and the boots at Goodwill.



Here I am with my roommates: Tom Cruise from Risky Business and Violet from The Incredibles.

Overall, I was super happy with my costume. It took me two weeks and cost about $100, but it went over really well.

The pack and gun look really good. Old computer parts is a really good idea.
