With Halloween right around the corner, you know you’re running out of time if you plan on making a LEGO costume for Halloween. You still have the weekend so it’s not too late! Since we’re here to help, here are a few ideas and links for the top 5 easiest LEGO Halloween costumes we’ve come across:
1. WildStyle LEGO Costume
WildStyle is an awesomely easy costume with big impact. All you need to make this costume is:
2. Emmet LEGO Movie Costume
Emmet is another easy costume to put together and is as simple as getting these items:
If you can’t find a vest and pants in the very loud neon orange variety, you can take a cue from Justin and Jenny McLelland’s blog post on how to make the vest and pants.
3. President Business LEGO Costume

Fortunately, the face mask is free courtesy of The LEGO Group! You can download the President Business mask (and others from The LEGO Movie) over at the Groove Bricks website.

can of spraypaint, and
round containers for studs.

5. Vitruvius LEGO Costume
Finally, the last super simple costume. This will seem like a long list, but for this one you’ll need:
I’m really surprised no one has made a “how-to” on making a Vitruvius LEGO costume, so I’m going to give you a few quick tips to really sell the costume:
- Use the sharpie to make spots on the inside collar of the blue cape.
- Hot glue the blue cape to the inside of the lab coat.
- Hot glue the tassel string to the bottom of the lab coat.
- Make a knot at the bottom of the hair wig and the beard wig.
And just so you know… now that I just got done writing all of this, my husband laughed at me when I said “honey, that is NOT an easy costume!” It’s clear he doesn’t agree with me that the costume is easy with the laundry list of things you need to do to pull it together.
Whether or not you think it’s easy, it’s cool, right?
