Alex was building the Queen from Alien (above right, in case you couldn’t tell), and he decided to build a power loader to go with it. After two weeks about about $230, he had the costume in the two videos below. It’s 9 feet tall, weighs 50 pounds, and is made from foam board, plaster, PVC pipes, spray paint, and magic. It breaks up into seven pieces that connect with PVC pipes to form a Voltron of awesome.
Would it be wrong to put on the tauntaun costume from last year and then get into this power loader? And then have a dwarf dressed like Atreyu from The NeverEnding Story ride on my back? I took it too far didn’t I?
