Mega Man!

This year our youngest wanted to be Mega Man for Halloween.  I had the perfect colored stretch lycra material already in my stash.  I picked up the rest of the supplies at a thrift store.  I used a basketball for the helmet.  It worked perfect because it was soft and pliable and I was able to cut the shape with scissors.  I used a football for the mega blaster.  These were both covered with the lycra and glued in place on the inside with the glue gun.  I cut a hole at one end of the football and wedged a flashlight in it.  It serves two purposes.  One, to use as a handle to hold the blaster, and two, as a cool light-up power source.  I covered the lens with transparent red tape.  The boots were made using thick plastic/foam placemats.  They were also covered with the fabric.  He LOVES it so I'd say it was a success!


  1. Well no surprise Hyrum loves this - it's incredible! It looks just like the picture. The mega blaster is super cool! How many times have you been blasted? Good luck on getting Hyrum to ever wear normal clothes again!

  2. OMGosh! That is amazing! I'd love it too!! Thank you for the visit and the sweet comment on my Ballard Designs chest @TheDedicatedHouse. It means the world. Hope you're having a grand day. Toodles, Kathryn
