With only a week to go, it’s getting to be too late to start building your own really complex costume for Halloween. But if you happen to have $9,000 kicking around, and happen to live in Phoenix, AZ, you might still be able to pull off the best costume of the year.
This spectactular handmade Transformers Bumblebee costume is for sale up on Etsy. It was built by Travis Culling of AZCostumes, and measures 9.5-feet-tall. It’s comprised of 7 pieces, including a pair of drywall stilts in the legs to help make you taller. Bumblebee is constructed mostly out of wood, flexible foam and latex paint, and even has working LED lights and headlights for showing off at night.
It’s even got a working flamthrower in one of the hands, powered by butane and capable of shooting flames 3 to 4 feet. Here it is standing alongside his pal Optimus Prime, in case you had any doubts that this was a real Autobot.
This one-of-a-kind costume is available over on Etsy for the low-low price of just $9,000 (USD). And if you don’t live in Phoenix, you can have it shipped for $250. I just don’t think you’ll get it in time for Halloween.
