My son wanted to be Dark Voyager from Fortnite for Halloween this year. While Spirit Halloween and the Internet had the costume available for a ridiculous amount of money, we went the DIY route! I started with a base of black sweatpants and hoodie and with my trusty hot glue gun added felt, fabric, and craft foam elements to create the character. There is also a strip of light up LEDs, but you can't tell they are on in the fall sunlight. We also did a paper mache helmet for this project, complete with flipable visor (made from a painted piece of a milk jug).

Pictures!







Some in progress pics of the helmet:





And inspiration pic for those of you who are lucky enough to NOT have children obsessed with Fortnite:



Thanks for looking! Happy Halloween! Smiley
