Check Out This Toy Story-Star Wars Crossover Costume
Both Darth Vader and Emperor Zurg are bad guys, so why not mix them up? Instructables user Luis Linares made this fun mash-up costume for his daughter from materials such as a trash can, a plastic viking helmet, and plastic canvas. The finished product looks cool and only a little frightening. Here’s how he started with the helmet:
I started off with an Office Trash Can. I freehanded the eyes and mouth with a marker where I was going to cut with a Dremel. I also cut off the top [of the] head in a 45 [degree angle] so I could add the gray foam mat piece in front of the head. I used hot glue to put it [the helmet and foam mat] together. [For] the nose I used the same thing – gray foam mat and used hot glue to put it together.
