Best Home-made Costume *ever*

This guy made Halo's Master Chief costume.

From Cardboard.

For under $30.

Here's how he made it

Certainly better than the lopsided Charlie Brown costume I just made last second.

Wow. Cardboard is awesome.

I thought my last minute wolverine costume was pretty good last week.

I think tonight it's going to be sexy 1900's steel conglomerate tycoon though.

That's pretty awesome!

I thought this duct tape Batman mask was cool. I wanna make a Batgirl mask with duct tape.

Sweeney, I don't think the photo you posted is the same costume as the cardboard guy. The suit and gun look different. Granted, he still did an amazing job with cardboard.

Hah there was an orange one of those at the nerd party i was at. it was pretty great, I couldn't figure out where he was seeing out of until someone pointed directly at the little hole in the black outline of the white.

Here's me (I was stealing Green arrow's quiver full of novelty arrows but steph didn't see me photobombing when she was shooting)
