Dude Recreates Famous Characters With Low Budget DIY Costumes



There’s a thing called “low cost cosplay” where people recreate famous characters with household items. The results are pretty amazing considering the materials used. I mean, if I wanted to look like the statue of liberty using the objects around me, my mind wouldn’t leap far enough to use camera tricks and patio chairs. The guy is impressive and is able to recreate looks as diverse as all four Teletubies, Spock and Wolverine. The most creative I got with a costume is wearing Minnie Mouse ears and gold chains so that I could say I was a “hood rat.” And it was just as unfunny on Halloween as it is today.
