Make Inspector Gadget’s Helicopter Hat! #electronichalloween

NewImage

Make your own flying hat this halloween with this instructables project by prixprix.

This moving Halloween costume was made almost entirely from recycled and thrifted materials. It was a serious crowd-pleaser — I walked into a bar and everyone started chanting “Go Go Gadget” until I switched on the helicopter and the entire bar started cheering. You too can be this awesome!

I started collecting materials for this costume the weekend before halloween. It probably took 8-12 hours to construct, over the course of a few days as the spray paint needs to dry overnight.

You can find the full tutorial here. Here’s to running around singing the Inspector Gadget theme song! Ooh Ooh!
