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.

    Will it assimilate?

  2. Ryan says:

    Very cool costume. He will definitely stand out on halloween.

    Anyone else think its weird that he has a mannequin though?

  3. NatureTM says:

    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.

    Will it blend?

    Anyone who actually calls themselves “DJ _____” is a raging douchebag.

  6. DJ Sures says:

    Hey thanx everyone! Minus the guy who called me a douchebag hahaha. A little research and you’d find out that’s my actual name. ;)

    Anyway, if anyone wants more technical information regarding the suit, you can find it here: http://www.dj-sures.com/Blog/2010-10-25+Calgary+Borg+Halloween+Costume

    Things I think are cool/well done:
    Use of hockey pads.

    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.
    Now you look like the douchebag. Hope you’re happy.

    Um what?

    Uhh, what?

    Mind translating that to English for us?

  10. Life2Death says:

    the display is out of place. bleh.
    Use rope light instead?

  11. ChalkBored says:

    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.

  12. ChalkBored says:

    …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.

    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.

    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”

  15. M4CGYV3R says:

    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.”
