CoderKev writes – “My original Halloween plans got toasted, so I had to come up with something in short order. About a week ago, I was going thru Halloween ideas and remembered seeing this Lego MiniFig Costume. Lego’s been one of those fun things I’ve enjoyed staying a kid to enjoy. So, I decided to mix the MiniFig with one of the best movies made in a while, “Shaun of the Dead.” Total construction time was about 20 hours. I’ll post construction details after Halloween. Hope it survives the festivities.” [via] – Link.

This entered in the MAKE & CRAFT Halloween contest, we’re up to 300+ photos and counting!! See all of the entries here!

Take a photo of your costume(s) then upload your photos to the MAKE or CRAFT Flickr photo pool and tag them “MAKECRAFTHALLOWEEN” Or you can email them to us, just be aware that we’re going to upload them to the MAKE and CRAFT Flickr photo pool. We’ll continue to post fun costumes and how-tos all this month as well – Link.

    Totally.. Thanks for noticing. :) For the parties, it was more “LegoMan” than Shaun… Ah well..

  3. Dave says:

    So, how exactly did you construct the costume? My friend and I stumbled upon this post while looking for neat halloween costume ideas.

    Some insight would be greatly appreciated.
