$1000 Robot Costume For Halloween

So what did you dress up as for Halloween? The boring usual selection of witches and warlocks? Some folks out there are a little more dedicated to instilling fear and terror into the hearts of others, evidenced by a commitment of 250 hours to build a costume and an estimated material cost of $1000. It looks like an exoskeleton that will put Robocop to shame, so it’s definitely something to check out. This person spent an estimated $600 on metal, aluminum and other parts; $250 for rivets, bolts and other hardware; $200 for tool purchase rentals; $90 for spray paint and even $210 to rent a truck to carry the costume. Check out a video of it in action after the jump.
