Halloween Props: Borg costume

The Halloween hacks are rolling in late this year, but we’re delighted to see that [DJ Sures] finished his borg costume in time. It is made up of a hodge-podge of items from different cultures… oh wait, so are the borg. These include a set of hockey pads spray painted black with just a light misting of silver to give them some depth. After taking the image above (which mostly shows off his makeup) [DJ Sures] added an LCD screen to the chest plate and lighted electronics throughout. See for yourself after the break.

If you liked this you might take a look at his singing spark plug.

  1. LOL @ the Borg holding a camera. He must be a true Star Trek fan since he doesn’t have a friend to take the picture for him!

    Just kidding! I love Star Trek and that’s an awesome costume. It’s just love nerd jokes too, but usually I’m the nerdiest person in the room so I have to direct them at myself. Rare opportunity.

  2. Things I think are cool/well done:
    Use of hockey pads.
    Electronics.
    Wires/tubing.
    Lights.

    Things that could use work:
    -Jacket underneath is a similar color, but does not exactly match making an odd pair.
    -You’re and your are different words.

    One last thing. THANK YOU so very much for the link to the non-instructables site. That is awesome.
    @Chris
    Now you look like the douchebag. Hope you’re happy.

    @ferdi
    Um what?

  3. I agree with the display being out of place.

    To nerd it up a bit:
    Since Borg communicate telepathically, there’s
    no need for them to diplay information to each
    other using a screen. If they wanted someone else to

    The excess of blue LED’s bugs me more, though.

  4. …If they wanted someone else who wasn’t Borg to see something, they’d just assimilate them.

    I hit tab to indent and posted prematurely.

  5. I think it’s pretty damn neat!
    Great use of items for lots of cool detail, and cool functional bits as well.

    You have added their distinctiveness to your own.

  6. I was going to comment about the DJ thing also but my comment was “I hope his name is David Jo or Dennis John or something that starts with a D and a J”

  7. From his About page, for those that can actually read:

    “no I’m not a DJ… It’s actually my name, so I get that confusion a lot.”

  8. Such talent!! I am proud of all your accomplishments and the creations that come from that never ending imagination of yours!! I have been amazed by you everyday of your life!!
