Be a Ghostbuster for Halloween

A great howto guide, I love the level of detail put into the costume:

Be a Ghostbuster for Halloween!

“I thought this would be a great idea for Halloween (I love Halloween!) so in my usual over the top fashion I went, well – over the top. A buddy of mine wanted to do it as well. We tried to get his roommate into it too so we could have a third Ghostbuster but he didn’t think we’d be able to do it. He was wrong. 🙂

I made two complete packs, suits, belts and goggles in just over two weeks working mostly nights and weekends. I also made a ghost trap and pedal- it clips onto the belt just like in the movie. The guns come off the packs and the packs light up, as does the trap. I made two lighting circuits for each pack using a simple homemade 555 timer circuit, a few LED’s and 9v batteries. The trap weighs around six or seven pounds and the packs weigh about twenty- five pounds.”
