Working Nikon camera aka best Halloween costume ever

Making of the Camera Costume from Tyler Card on Vimeo.

Michigan-based photographer Tyler Card took his craft to the next (and very literal) level with a Halloween costume that should be submitted to Make’s Halloween costume contest. With the help of Adam Barr, Tyler built this life-size costume of a Nikon D3 DSLR camera, which is impressive in and of itself, but what makes it mind-blowing is that it’s a fully functional, working camera with a “LCD display, built-in flash, and shutter-release button.”

In a similar, digital vein, this guy built a costume using two iPads with one in the front and one in the back to give the appearance that he has a gaping hole clear through his torso. It’s deceptively simple, but as one YouTube comment pointed out, it’s not the cheapest to make. With the increasing advancements in digital screens, are we only a few years away from someone showing up to a Halloween party wearing Harry Potter’s cloak of invisibility? That would be impressive, but it still wouldn’t beat this old working Transformer costume.
