i did a lot of research for this.
i built the helmet out of cardboard and
used bubble packaging for a softer "lego" look.
i then wrapped everything in duct tape and painted it.
i also made the jetpack/airtank the same except i skipped the bubble packaging. i then made the straps by sewing a really long strip
out a t shirt and putting it through little holes in the "backplate"
(the original lego piece had it hang from the neck.
that obviously wasn't going to hang with me*snerk*)
i made a bunch of stencils to paint the logo on the shirt.
(one wasn't going to cut it.*haha*)
i sewed a pair of mittens out of blue and yellow t shirts.
i think the most expensive thing i bought was the blue vans i wore with it.
(about 15$ at value village!)
i just repainted the helmet and jetpack/airtank
because it predictably started peeling.
i'll post the new paintjob later.
i made this after seeing The Lego Movie,
and i wore it to free Comic Book Day.
the employees loved it!!!
one girl completely fangirled in front of me and told me i'd "won" FCBD.
