Here is an update on our journey of making our Tetris costumes from flat pieces of foam core to full-size Tetris blocks with LEDs programmed to fade in and out. We have a ton of process photos, so enjoy!
We traced our bodies on brown paper to figure out the measurements for our blocks that would fit all three of us:
Taking measurements to paper before cutting foam core:
From 2D to 3D—costume assembly and fitting phase:

THE BIG REVEAL!
