Terminator is coming from the future !
# How to build your own (bad) Terminator costume #
## Shopping list##
You will need:
* A serious shotgun: mine is a toy but painted with dark wood varnish (wenge). Cut the butt off to make a riot gun.
* A black leather jacket & black trousers (leather if possible). I used my motorbike jacket because kevlar protection pads made my look bigger.
* Black Boots
* Some electronic parts: chips, resistors…
* And the most important thing: Sunglasses with red lights.
## Building your new eyes ##
But a pair of cheap plastic sunglasses. Glue one red LED to each glass, in the same position your eye is.
Connect the LEDs (some soldering is required) to a long wire and pass it along your neck, back and left arm. Attach two AA batteries (hidden in your sleeve) and finally add a small switch that you can conceal in your left hand.
## All together ##
Put your trousers, t-shirt and boots on. Place sunglasses and wire in the right position and finallly put the jacket on.
Add some electronic parts to a piece of plastic and stick it to a side of your head.
## Be afraid of Terminator ##
Switch your red eyes off, and wait for someone to look at you. Keep a straight face and switch them on quickly to scare them.
I got into many clubs for free with this costume !
