Halloween is coming and so is LittleBigPlanet, and that means it’s time to dress like a Sackboy!

What’s that you say? You don’t have a life-sized Sackboy costume to wear? Have no fear: A U.K. web designer named Adam has not only built one for himself, he’s put up detailed instructions and photographs so you can make one too. Along with the costume plans, the site includes a “How Not To Do It” guide detailing his first attempt at constructing the outfit, which ended up looking more like a garden planter than a Sackboy head.

Construction materials are cheap and easy to find: After experimenting with a relatively complicated process involving chicken wire, cardboard and papier-mâché, Adam discovered an easier and more effective way to make the costume using just a plastic garbage pail, bubble wrap, some grey flannel and a whole lot of tape; tools required for the job include just a bread knife, scissors and a glue gun.

The end result? A great-looking Sackboy and a unique costume for this year’s Halloween party blowout! To learn how to make one yourself and see some photos of the costume (and the grown man wearing it) in action, head over to
