Want to make a costume from Ghostbusters but don’t want to create a proton pack or be the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man? Take the creative route Instructables user Greasetattoo chose: become the Ghostbusters logo. You could translate this idea to so many films! The build cost less than $25 and is pretty straightforward; the main material is white foam. Here’s how he created the eyes, nose, and mask portion of the costume:
For the eyes, nose and mouth.
I used my router.
I did use a 1/2″ half round bit.
The foam routed very easy.
I also routed a depression in the back for your nose.
I used a 3/4 drill bit for the eye holes.
You could also carve them out.
Next, we have to have a way to mount the face on our head.
So, I got some ceiling hooks and epoxied them onto the back of the foam.
Each hand will get 2 hooks and the face will get 2 hooks.
Then, stretch a rubber band across the hooks and you have your hand holds.
