DIY Ghostbusters Proton Pack

proton pack

You’re probably not afraid of any ghosts, but if you’re planning to be a Ghostbuster for Halloween you should be prepared to capture them. You’ll need a proton pack, and while it would be wonderful to create a screen accurate replica of the backpack, you can get close with an old backpack, foam, and a few more supplies. Albion Gould put together a straightforward tutorial on building a proton pack from the materials mentioned above plus some scrap cable, a box, and paint.

She cut out the foam pieces to match the general shapes of the proton pack and glued them onto an 11 inch by 15 inch box. Then she spray painted everything black. She cut up some scrap cables and inserted them into the foam pieces and added a few more touches to make a simple but effective Ghostbusters proton pack. These kind of projects can save the day as you scramble for last minute costumes for Halloween.
