How to Turn Yourself into an Adult Size LEGO Minifig with Cardboard

LEGO Costume - Halloween DIY - Cardboard Costume

If you are a LEGO lover, good with a glue gun, and have some spare cardboard around, we’ve found your perfect Halloween costume. The Q—a YouTube channel known for their science and DIY projects—just released an incredible video on how to construct your own LEGO costume from cardboard.

With a little patience and attention to detail, you can transform yourself into a lifesize minifig by following the steps for the DIY costume. There are surprisingly few materials needed—cardboard, a box cutter, compass, pencil, glue gun, and one piece of PVC pipe. And, of course, a ruler. Though the video doesn’t show precise measurements, the shapes are easy enough that one could customize them to their body.

And even if you’re not keen on giving the cardboard costume a try, it’s a mesmerizing video to watch as a LEGO man takes shape, piece by piece.

The DIY costume starts by constructing the legs, using a hot glue gun to hold together pieces of cardboard.

A PVC pipe is used to allow the legs to move independently of one another.
