Halloween and Wal-E! Homemade Costumes rule!

"Wiggs" as Wall-E

“Wiggs” as WALL e

It’s a good thing Drew likes projects – because this one took 2 weeks.

But look at the joy on Wiggs’ face – he had the coolest costume in San Clemente.  Next year, we’ll enter a contest.  Maybe we’ll win some money!

Check out the photos of “The Making of Wal-E” here:

  1. Awesome! My daughter is crazy about Wall-E but I will never have enough patience to make something like that. Simply stunning!

    Alex, thanks for the comment. To answer:

    The eyes inside the binocular eyes (the shiny part) is CD’s glued to the foam head. The foam head is glued to a bicycle helmet.

    The tracks are made of foam also. Underneath the whole thing sits on a wooden frame with caster wheels that can move in any direction.

    I towed the whole thing with my son in it from house to house around the neighborhood!

    Good luck with your costume – it’s awesome having something that no one else does!

    Great Costume!! We are building one too… I was wondering what the tracks and the binocular eyes are made of? I know you must get a lot of questions about this so if you have a sec I’d greatly appreciate hearing about it in 25 words or less to minimize your time…

  4. This is an absolutely amazing costume! What incredible talent!
