So my son wanted to break out his Gir costume for Boston Comic Con. I washed the suit made some new gloves, gave the head a new coat of paint and put some new batteries in for his eyes. Then I figured what the heck and we downloaded some soundbites of Gir and I hooked up a mp3 player to a waistband amplification system and he walked around the convention making Gir sounds with the press of a button. He was a huge hit. We heard a rumor there was a Dib at the convention and we were lucky enough to run into him and get a picture. My son was lucky enough to get his picture on Boston.com under boston comic con so it was pretty cool. I have to say he was a hit we got photo bombed everywhere we went and they went nuts when he talked.
Now THAT's awesome!
OMG!!! dib is perfect!!! DDDD:! , gir :33
how did you do the eyes??? D: <33
I used a wide angle blue led in each one and then covered the eyes with a translucent plastic to help diffuse the led and then a transparent blue plastic on top of the translucent plastic so if his eyes weren't turned on they would still be blue.
What the fuck
the zipper is bigger than his head
Lucky! I planned to make a GIR costume for Comic con but then the maybe turned into a no.
