Star Wars AT-AT Walker Costume

at-at costume 1

Instructables user jeanmarcus always chooses an object from a movie for his Halloween costume. In past years he’s been the Flux Capacitor from Back to the Future and the treasure map from The Goonies. For this year’s costume, he chose an AT-AT Walker from Star Wars. He knew it wouldn’t be simple, but he figured it out and made a wearable walker from materials like polystyrene and lots of glue. He started by making the pattern for the flattened structure.

Next, he focused on the torso:

Starting with the torso is the best way to ensure everything fits properly once the parts are completed.

Lay it out to make sure your head and body will fit inside. You will want to have plenty of room for your head to move inside so make the torso about 8 inches longer than your torso when you sit to the top of your head. and wide enough to fit your shoulders and hips in the back. As well as the harness/baby carrier/ or metal framed backpack.

You’re going to want to make sure whatever you are using will make that torso snug to your back.
