Just so you know, the post below is an updated version of my top 5 Easiest LEGO Costume Ideas post originally published back in October 2015. I was really surprised last year when no one made any additional suggestions as far as easy LEGO costume ideas go. I expected some other people to pop up with a few great ideas that would trump my list, but there was not a single comment.
For those of you that have never read this post, I hope you find something quick and easy to make here! And those of you that have seen this post before… or a version of it, since I’ve updated some of the text and a few of the affiliate links, I hope it helps you, too!
And yes, I did say there are affiliate links below. I linked to Amazon, since, if you are like me, you may find yourself trying to put together a costume 3 days before the event. I <3 Amazon’s free two day shipping. It has saved my hiney more than once. If you’ve never tried it, you can sign up for an Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial. It’s well worth it!
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
Now this one is super-duper easy. Depending on how many formal events you go to during the year, you (or your kid) may already have the items you need in your closet. If not, I recommend hitting a thrift store to pick up the pieces for this President Business LEGO Halloween 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.
4. LEGO Brick Costume
The LEGO Brick Costume is probably the easiest of the bunch. All it takes is:
glue gun and glue sticks (nothing fancy – this is the one we have in our house),
can of spray paint, and
round containers – small 8oz party cups used for snacks and ice cream work well, because the cup walls aren’t highly slanted.
If you’re more of a visual person, WikiHow has an excellent walk through for making the LEGO brick costume.
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 tassels 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?
