This year, my costume production was pretty labor intensive. My 10 year old wanted to be an Xbox controller, for which I learned how to solder wire so I could make that light up Xbox logo (more on that in a moment). The 7 year old wanted to be a Lego Minifigure, for which I constructed and carved a head out of styrofoam. FTW!
A few more shots:
Here you get a better sense of the light up nature of the Xbox controller. The 10 year old liked it, too, because he had these little on and off switches that turned the X on, or set it to blink, or whatever.
I will be putting up tutorials for these costumes next week, so stay tuned!
Oh, and rabbit, rabbit.
