This costume that I found on IKEA Hackers is brilliant!
- 1 Regolit Shade Lamp from IKEA
- 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.
