This costume’s features giant scoop-hands are designed for rapid collection of tiny “fun-sized” Halloween candy. It was inspired by construction equipment and the robotic suit Sigourney Weaver wore in the movie Aliens. Other inspiration included fireman’s helmets and old school Transformers action figures. Note that the original costume was red, and the extra colorways were created in Photoshop. Thank you to Catherine Leung for taking these photographs.
