DIY Android and Charger Halloween Costumes by Daryl Sans
When Papa Daryl’s 4 yr old daughter wanted to be an Android, he decided, what better than to be a charger. The adorable little Android’s costume uses energy efficient, green, cold-cathode lamps in her antennae. In addition, when her costume plugs into the “charger”, her antennae illuminate!
HOW TO MAKE THIS COSTUME
Take a brown dome lid trash can and cutout the bottom, installing straps inside to hold up costume. Cut holes out on top for antennae.
Cut up a green plush blanket and hot glue it to the trash can. Glue on white felt for the eyes.
Install cold cathode lighting from a computer store in the trash can dome holes. Hot glue in battery holders to hold 8 AA Batteries.
Use an empty cardboard box for the charger and cut a 9″ circle on top. Paint wood slats with chrome paint to create the faux electrical plug.
