What did you do, Ray?


A couple of years ago I made a Ghostbusters costume for a party, complete with scratch built Proton Pack. Sometimes I get a little over invested in a project, it took over my life for a bit. This may be why I didn't post any pictures at the time but seeing as it's Halloween it seems appropriate that I dig them out, so here you go:
Everything from Celebrations to toilet rolls... Pepsi Max to Pringles!

  
The wand (with glowing tip naturally!); the complete pack and wand undercoated; the final costume. 

Proton pack sprayed black, drybrushed, dusted, and stickered. The red disks have small lights behind them to make them glow. I was Stantz in case you were wondering!

... and here I am at the party with a (arguably) less authentic but (arguably) more attractive Ghostbuster:


p.s. Adam Savage bought a kit! Never thought I'd out do Adam at making prop costumes!

It's the tin of Pepsi-Max that really makes it - nice work!

Can we please have a photo not of your bum in the suit, it is awesome, and the suit good too, but hey, where is the aylesbury ghostbuster?
