Is This the Most Adorable 'Aliens' Halloween Costume Possible?

Is This the Most Adorable 'Aliens' Halloween Costume Possible?

Oct 30, 2012

Everyone has that one friend who goes all out on Halloween with a costume that makes even the most dedicated costume lovers look lazy. This guy's Aliens costume makes that friend look like an amateur. Prepare to be both impressed and overloaded with cuteness.

And for those concerned for the little girl's safety, from the creator's YouTube page [via Geekologie]:

I built this robot suit in two nights and a day out of cardboard boxes and hot glue. My baby girl rides comfortably in a Baby Bjorn with the roll cage protecting her. The entire costume only weighs about ten pounds, plus baby.

My highest priority was keeping my little girl safe, so the costume was designed for mobility and quick exit in case of emergency. The boots are basically cardboard slippers that could pop right off. With a shrug of my shoulders, I could pop the arms right off. What you can't see from the video is that there are no bottoms on the robot arms, so my human arms were completely free and unimpeded. I could leave the claws hanging idle from the shoulder joints while I could address any of my girl's needs. I would have had to take the suit off to changer her diaper, though!
