Spotted on the MAKE Flickr pool, this awesome father and son costume combo. Dad’s a HazMat worker and son is a barrel of toxic waste! How sweet. The project was actually quite simple and visually documented in the photo set. Nice work, fellas!

Halloween Costume 2010

And don’t forget, we have our own DIY Haunts contest here on MAKE (for electrifying Halloween props) and CRAFT is doing a costume contest (food, drink, and decor are eligible, too!). Plenty of serious prizes up for grabs. If you’ve built any prop with movement, sound, and lights, or a cool costume, you’re eligible to enter! We want to see what makers are doing this Halloween. Please enter!
