I made a robot costume a couple of years ago like this:
Wear all black or all white clothes and add-
Body: use 2 large disposable foil pans...one for front, one for back...attached to each other at shoulders by duct tape straps.  Wear like a "sandwich board".  Find lots of gears, reflectors, and lights (like the battery operated push on lights, or the flashing little lights that people wear at clubs), and curly telephone wires. Dollar stores have lots of good things. Attach with brads or double stick tape.
Head: use a wire mesh type of colander(for kitchen) as hat.  Attach the same type of things as above. I used a telephone cord as a strap to hold it on.
Arms/legs: Pieces of dryer vent duct stuff...find at a home store...used to come in silver but I'm not sure now. Slip on like long bracelets from wrist to elbow...and from ankle up to knee.

Oh! Good luck!

This reminds me of a story. Many years ago (or dear, maybe 20 or so) my youngest brother wanted to be a robot for Halloween. My mom made him the most awesome costume from cardboard boxes and tin foil and he had different coloured buttons (plastic bottle caps) and Christmas lights and everything. It looked fantastic. On Halloween, my brother put the costume on, noticed that he could not move his arms (important for claiming candy!), and started bawling.  My mom gave up in exasperation and put an old sheet on his head and declared that he could be a ghost that year.  Cheesy

The suggestions here are great. I vote for flashing lights too. It's quite easy to wire up say a 9V battery and some small lights.  Smiley
