Cute robot costume from brokenpipe on Instructables.
This year I decided to make a couple of robot costumes for the kids. My goal was to create a fairly classic boxy robot but I also wanted to add a few elements to make it a little more believable. I was able to add a light display in the chest and a robotic voice. When all is said and done, I was pretty happy with the results. I hope that some of what I came up with is useful to you as you build your own robot costume.
Unfortunately, I didn’t document the building of the costumes as I progressed so some of the photos might look more like a tear down.
The costume basically breaks down into the following parts:
- Arms & hands
- Waist & legs
