When you next feel a need to dress like an evil robot, consider becoming HAL from 2001: A Space Odyssey. Don’t be afraid that you can’t do that. Instructables member jacqueslelezard created a simple and effective HAL costume from cardboard, a tablet, black acrylic paint, a mosquito net, and a strap to keep the mask on. The hardest part of the costume wlll probably be finding a box to fit your head or building one to fit. He used plans of HAL from the film to get the proper dimensions.
Once you have a cardboard box, unfold it and paint it with black acrylic paint. You may have to apply multiple layers for full coverage. Jacques installed a piece of mosquito netting forthe top grid and then made a cardboard pocket of sorts for a tablet to rest in on the back of the mask.
