With the Halloween season in full swing now, along came~ duh, duh, duh…”The Lego Costume Project.” You’ve probably seen a homemade Lego costume and wondered how did they make that? Last year we saw a C3P0 version as well as others sell on Ebay for a good bit of money. This year the little bug got put in my older son’s ear (not by me of course) and thus he has decided he wants Justin to try and make it. We already have a cute Captain Jack Sparrow costume from Disney that my sister let us borrow, so why not a Lego Captain Jack Sparrow?! So here are the beginning stages/steps to making Lego Captain Jack Sparrow:
1. Buying a big styrofoam sheet from Lowe’s ($10.58) and Valspar sample paint base 4 or whatever color you are going for ($2.68) ~Later we will get black acrylic paint to do the face features.
2. Using a large circle template (I have the Creative Memories Circle cutting tool that comes with different size blades that attach to the circle I’m using), cut out as many big circles so that it is big enough to cover the person’s entire head you are making it for. In our case, for Landon it took 16 circles.
3. Glue in between each circle, so that it is glued together. Put something heavy on top and let it dry overnight. We used our heavy wedding album. :)
4. Stay tuned for next post for the next steps… :)
