Kragle Costume from The Lego Movie

kragle costume

The super weapon Kragle scares the minifigs of The Lego Movie. And it should! It’s a tube of Krazy Glue and once it’s applied, the Lego figures will never be able to move again. It’s a fantastic idea for a costume, and Instructables user bschonec made it from a two pack curtain set, foam pipe insulation, red and green fabric paint, and a few more items. He began by printing the Krazy Glue logo in the size he needed and traced the logo onto the curtain. He filled in the letters with red fabric paint.

The next step is aging. A few letters have faded in the movie, and they needed to look they’d worn off over time. He and his wife used silver glue to paint over the missing letters. Here’s how he made the top of the tube that also serves as the collar:

I cut a doughnut out of thin plywood (luan board would do fine) with a diameter of and an inside diameter of . To make the plywood more comfortable, I cut some padding from an old camp mat (see my Emmet Lego Costume instructable) and glued it to the underside of the plywood. Her shoulders are much more comfortable now.

We found a straw basket at a thrift store, cut a hole in it big enough for her head and painted both the basket and the plywood silver. I think the basket gives the illusion of screw threads without having to go through all the trouble of making the threads. If you want to go through the trouble, cut some pipe insulation in half and glue the 1/2 moon shapes in a helical pattern onto the basket.
