Child's mech walker costume

I love this child's mech walker costume built by one of his parents. Brownlee has more over at BB Gadgets. Beware the clomping of the candy-fueled Chicken Walker


  1. It’s a cool costume, but the cynic in me is imagining some neighborhood bully stealing this kid’s candy- and the resulting chase scene has me cracking up on the inside.

  2. That is all kinds of wonderful, but the coloration just screams, “screw thematic coloring, cars are going to be aiming for little Timmy.”

    To be fair, if I saw that thing clomping down the street in full camo or even gunmetal I’d assume the robots were attacking and may well run it down for the sake of all humanity. Also, to save Sarah and/or John Connor.

  3. Poor kid – I’m sure those are breeze blocks on his feet. Sort of Godfather-meets-Star-Wars.

  4. The poor kid is slowing down from exhaustion after just a few steps for Dad’s camcorder. How will he ever glom loads of candy in that getup?

  5. No one is stealing this kids Halloween candy this year. Speaking of Halloween candy, I couldn’t tell from the video whether or not this kid could actually use his arms wearing the costume. Maybe they just have to stick the candy in his cannon, that would be awesome.

  6. This has me suddenly plotting several years’ worth of variants… AT-ST, Madcat, Baba Yaga’s hut, ED-209…. *drool*

    Whaddya think, styrofoam blocks and suspenders? Is there a good green alternative to styrofoam for big chunky lightweight shaping?

    Kinda reminds me of this dude’s alien costume from 1995 England:

  7. Nice, very nice. But from prior experience with costumes that are bulky and hard to maneuver in, this kid’s candy haul will suffer.

  8. Alpinwolf @ 19 – “Is there a good green alternative to styrofoam for big chunky lightweight shaping?” – cardboard boxes or chickenwire for shape, papier maché or plaster of paris for the skin… lots of fun.

  9. This is a great costume, but the Sarah Palins that showed up at my door this year were way scarier.
