Robot Halloween Costume

I felt like being creative this year for halloween. So i built this
robot costume out of surplus military parts and other various
electronic apparatus. Shown here are photos in the light and in
dark, where you can see everything light up. One notable feature is
the plasma globe in the middle of the robot body. All toggle
switches on the front-right turn on/off parts of the robot.
Including the eye light bulbs, the random LED's, the plasma globe,
and the Heathkit 120 VAC panel meter. This robot has x-band radar
dish antennas for ears, and a combination of red lamps and radio
dials from WW2 as the eyes. My ipod was setup to play a loop of
random robot noises through the two speakers at the bottom of the
robot body.

Very fun!
