Halloween 2013 BONUS!: Homemade Daft Punk Costumes

I actually had two costumes this year.  In addition to the Breaking Bad costumes, I also made some Daft Punk costumes for me and my gf.  While I didn't wear the Daft  Punk costume to work, it's too cool not to post.

Here's a music video we made for fun, check it out!

The helmets, gloves, and necklaces were made from scratch.  While not as technically accurate as some of the others on the web, the illusion was there, and we were very recognizable.  Here a few video writeups on the build:

Halloween 2013: "Breaking Bad"

With AMC's series "Breaking Bad" wrapping up just weeks before Halloween this year, we couldn't help but pay homage to one of the best shows on TV!

This year my coworker and I turned the outside of our cubes into Walt and Jesse's RV, and I built a bubbling, smoking, meth lab in mine, complete with blue rock candy "meth".  It was a huge hit!

Check out the  video tour!:

Halloween 2012: The Roaring 20's!

This year I was obsessed with two things:
 - HBO's "Boardwalk Empire
 - Turning my cube into a bar

So what better theme than "The Roaring Twenties!"?  It's an easy enough theme for people to participate in (even the laziest of people can grab a cheap fedora from Target, throw on a tie and maybe a pair of suspenders), and the centerpiece would be turning my cube into a speakeasy (complete with "illegal" booze)!

I have to say, it came out great!  Here's a video tour of the speakeasy:

(My apologies for the poor quality.)

Halloween 2009: "Rock Band"

This year our Halloween theme was "Battle of the Rock Bands"!  If for no other reason than to have an excuse to play video games at work!

Halloween 2008: "Prison"

Work often feels like a prison.  So this Halloween we made it look like one too!

Several groups moved out of our building leaving a lot of empty cubicles, so we fenced off two entire rows and turned it into a full maximum security federal penitentiary.
