DIY Ghostbusters Halloween Costume

October 31, 2014 | By Brent Almond | DESIGN STUFF, POP CULTURE, THINGS MY KID DIGS

At some point I may do a write up of how I turned my occasionally mild-manners son into Egon Spengler, the nerdiest of those superhero/super-scientists known as the Ghostbusters. But for now I’m just going to share the photos of my very happy little boy. And go take a nap…

Who you gonna call? THIS GUY, striking an impressive pose in his Dad-DIY Ghostbusters Halloween costume. And next year he’s going as Jonathan Lipnicki in Jerry Maguire.

Yup, the proton pack “shooter” lights up. BOOM! I’m BEST DAD EVER. Until two minutes later…“Did you do a ghost trap?!?”

The back of the proton pack is where it’s at. I simplified it from the original, of course. And Jon was sure to tell me that the “real” ones don’t have a big red button on the back. But I wanted to make sure it would withstand a full day of preschool and full night of trick-or-treating. Fingers crossed… BUT NOT THE STREAMS!

BONUS PIC!
Sent to me by the dad of one of Jon’s classmates. All ghosts better pray they don’t run into us tonight.

    So cute, and well done! We saw a ghost buster last weekend when we were Trick or Treating, and it’s hands down the best costume choice I’ve seen this year.

      It’s been amazing to see him become such a big fan. He’s always loves superheroes, but this year it was Ghostbusters. Luckily we were able to take him to see it in the theater for its 30 year anniversary!
