Jaemin’s WALL·E

My halloween costume is Wall·E, my favorite Pixar character.

Costume

Initial Idea Sketch from week 6
Wall·E with blinking eyes (with Blue LED, changed from Red heart emoji)

Process
Head gear
(1) Structure
I cut two blocks of blue foam and sanded those to make the head gear structure.
(2) Eyes
I started to work on the head gear first. For Wall·E’s starry eyes, I 3D printed the lens structure and added two layer of PVC film.
(3) Assembly/Wiring
This was probably the hardest part in this project. Things are about to be put all together and I was afraid to ruin it all. I measured and carefully carved out the blue foam where two LEDs, the circuit and the battery go. Then taped it to put all the pieces together and finally covered the structure with decorative paper.

Cardboard costume
– Compared to the head gear, I enjoyed making the cardboard costume with no pressure, I sprayed the colored paper to the cardboard and added details with sharpie.
