Just thought I'd share my robot costume and my GFs molotov cockteas costume.
The helmet is a hasbro clone trooper that was on clearance for 10 bucks with bondo some pvc thingies for eyes, plexiglass lenses and a voice changer wired to a row or LEDs in the mouth so when you talk the mouth lights up. The armor is a mix matach of thrift store odds and ends and a trash can.
Its suppose to be kind of a iron giant, rocketeer, clone trooper, unit 3000-21, IG-87
The original idea was kind of what if the reason why IG-87 didn't join the IG-88s is because he didn't want to take over the galaxy, he just wanted to party.
I know its not on the level of what alot of you guys do but it was fun.
