Playable Pac-Man Costume: What Are You Wearing This Halloween?

by Paul Strauss

Spotted on the pages of Make:, this DIY Pac-Man costume is not only super awesome, it’s completely playable.


Created by Russell Luzinski a couple of Halloweens back, the wearable Pac-Man system is actually based on a laptop, loaded into a wooden frame, with a customized Gravis Gamepad Pro, modded with a wooden ball on the joystick.


The best part? Russell has been kind enough to share the build details over on Make: Projects, so you too can be wearing one of these for the upcoming Halloween season. Or just build one and wear it to work any old day.


Me, I’m making mine with an iPad.

    Cool and innovative, but more of just a mini arcade cabinet with shoulder straps to lug it around than a “costume”. I think I’d whip one up but lose the straps and stand it on a table or counter.

    And loose the chance to ask good looking women to play with your joystick without going to jail?

    You’re insane AJ.. :)
