(10/10/2005•17:50) Making a BIG costume [edit]wayoutwalt 

I am going this year as a crane machine that gives out stuffed animals and my friend is going as Zoltar the fortuneteller from the movie Big. Here are some questions.

1. Is the bigness of these costumes a bad idea? I have my infrastructure built and I can walk around in it ok with it being just a little heavy.

2. I want music and lighting. For music I was gonna stick my ipod inside a speaker, wire it up and use a remote control. Any better ideas? For lighting I was gonna buy some battery powered xmas lights and link them around the "machine" Any suggestions would be great.

3. Gotta make a joystick "mechanism". I was gonna use an old Atari joystick but the response on it was too rigid. Maybe a computer joystick? Any model you can suggest that would look correct?

4. Stuffed animals. I need alot! First I go to friends then to garage sales then to thrift stores. Any other ideas?

Thanks!
