It took 250 hours and $1000 to build, but we think that this robot mecha walker costume speaks for itself.
Check it out in the video after the break.
Sheet metal, aircraft aluminum, and other parts: $600.
Rivets, bolts, hardware: $250.
Tool purchases/rentals: $200.
Truck rental to carry costume: $210
Looking like you could take down a tank: priceless.
Personally, I would like to see robot guy and the guy in this epic Halo Elite costume go head to head in a fight to be the king of Halloween.
