I’ll be honest, when I requested a Prawn costume while writing my “Best Halloween Costumes of 2009” post, I didn’t really think anyone would come through. Thankfully, I misunderestimated our readers, and Ian sent in this kickass costume he made from scratch…in only 120 hours. Wow. But yeah, it definitely paid off. My plan was to cut the claw off a lobster costume and put a yellow contact in one eye, but this is way, way better. This “submit your costumes” thing wasn’t really a contest. Until now, because Ian wins.
There’s one more full length photo of the prawn after the jump, and go here to see a full photo documentary as to just how this thing was made.
