If you are a LEGO lover, good with a glue gun, and have some spare cardboard around, we’ve found your perfect Halloween costume. The Q—a YouTube channel known for their science and DIY projects—just released an incredible video on how to construct your own LEGO costume from cardboard.
With a little patience and attention to detail, you can transform yourself into a lifesize minifig by following the steps for the DIY costume. There are surprisingly few materials needed—cardboard, a box cutter, compass, pencil, glue gun, and one piece of PVC pipe. And, of course, a ruler. Though the video doesn’t show precise measurements, the shapes are easy enough that one could customize them to their body.
