Cool Giant Eyeball Costume Using IKEA Parts

Filed under: Halloween — Laura Moncur @ 8:00 am

This costume that I found on IKEA Hackers is brilliant!

Giant Eyeball Costume from Pick Me


  • 1 Regolit Shade Lamp from IKEA
  • tape
  • paint


  • Make the top hole bigger, so your head fits in it, but don’t cut near the metalic ‘loopies’; you still need them to keep the metal structure in place and stretch the lamp open.
  • Reinforce with some tape.
  • Cut a little spyhole.
  • Paint a pupil & iris around it.
  • Put the sphere on your head, then stretch it open by introducing the metal structure.
  • And remember to bring a straw if you want to drink at the party!

What would be really cool is if you do this with a group of friends, so you all show up at the party with giant eyeball heads.
