Lego Costume for Halloween

Updated on September 25, 2015

Lego Halloween Costume

I love legos, so dressing up as my favorite lego mini-fig is not out of the realm of possibilities. It is difficult to find a complete lego costume online though, so we may have to piece this one together or go totally homemade. This is not the type of costume to try to put together the week before Halloween. Do some planning.

Luckily, there is a company on eBay that makes lego style heads which you can customize. They don't come cheap, but they are definitely different. There are some kid lego costumes around the Ninjago series that can be found on Amazon.

Lego Costume Head

Making a lego costume head based on a mini-fig is not going to be easy. You need something that is lightweight, round, the right color yellow, and the ability to paint the face you wanted on it. Luckily, there is someone to do it for you and will customize the lego face to match your costume.

Making the Lego Costume Body

The body of a lego min-fig costume is pretty simple. You just need a cardboard box that will fit over your shoulders and goes down to around your bellybutton. Any lower and you will probably not be able to sit down.

You then decorate the box to fit your costume. Camouflage if you are in the military, or paint it any color and don't forget a little tie or something around the neck.

Lego Costume Hands

Making lego costume hands is pretty simple, basically they are just a half of a 2 liter bottle, 1 liter bottle for smaller hands. Cut the bottle in half, shape the hands and glue them or duct tape them to a tube that will fit over your arms. Your hands come out the bottom of the tube, allowing you to use your hands while having the great look of lego hands.

Making Lego Costume Shoes

This one is pretty easy as well, since the feet on most lego minifigs are square. Find two old shoe boxes that are the same size. You need to cut a whole in the bottom of the shoeboxes big enough to get your foot through. The opening in the box will point down so you can put your shoes on and actually walk. Now again, paint the boxes a nice lego yellow or the color to match your costume's theme.

What type of lego would you be for Halloween?
