The homemade Mr. Destructoid Halloween costume

The Destructophone (as well as most of the Internets) has been horribly dry this weekend. Not much has happened, but at least we can go out on a high note thanks to Dtoider Matt T. Matt loves reading the site and of course loves robots. So it was a real simple decision for his Halloween costume this year: 

Hey Destructoid!

I really enjoy reading your site and love robots. So, my Halloween costume this year was a no-brainer. However, I went with a design inspired by your very own automaton! Obviously, it’s not as crafty or clean looking as yours, but it gets the job done. I used two vehicle tail light covers for the eyes which give a very cool glow effect in photos. I added an antenna, and used round electrical junction boxes for the ears. The housing was made out of metal flashing used for roofing, so it’s pretty thin and a little too flimsy. I should have used thicker material. Also, I attached a baseball cap on the interior for comfort and too keep it secure. But, I think I am going to upgrade it to a bike helmet to make it more snug. 

Keep up the good work.
 
Here’s to the robot apocalypse!

 Awesome job Matt. Now to complete the costume, you just need a eye-catching suit, an entourage of awesome people and a never ending supply of Coronas.

Halloween is still a few days off and if you too want to be have a Mr. Destructoid costume, then check out Sausage Fingers Gregor’s step-by-step guide on how to make your own Mr. Destructoid helmet.  

[P.S. Check out Matt’s artwork on his site too if you got the chance. Doesn’t have anything to do with videogames, but it is neat nonetheless.]
