Home Engineering: Gaping Hole Costume

photo of gaping hole Halloween costume by Evan Booth, 2006

This great Halloween costume by Evan Booth shows what a bit of imagination and engineering can do. A projection screen over his stomach displays a live video image of a camera on his back giving the illusion of a gaping hole. Photos via flickr. Very cool.

    How much would something like this run? I really want to do this for Halloween ’09. I would totally win the costume contest this year if I had something like this!

    Sweet! Now I want one. How about a hole in the head? Other videos could be used for different effects too, think fishtank, fire, hampster on a wheel. 😉

    This is a really cool idea of a Halloween costume, totally unique. I wonder where one can get the costume for sale?
