I am doing a man in the box illusion costume that has been done before many times . I am trying to find a new twist to the costume that will make it a little different. I bought a few things on ebay a Styrofoam head , some facial hair . I am going to liquid latex the head to make the head look like a real man 's head and put facial hair on him .
I thinking about man the the cage being carried . but I am not sure if that would work . Would anyone have ideals to a new twist with the man in the box costume that would be a winner ? any suggestions are greatly appreciated :D

Here are some photos of people who did this costume , if anyone was not sure what the man in the box illusion is. These are photos I got off of the internet and have no connection to these people.

I wanted to make one like this...

Ideally I was hoping to make one fake arm for me, and then set the monitor up so that I could trigger certain phrases and facial expressions using a hidden keyboard.

I'm following this thread now and I have always wanted to do this too. I'd love to see more ideas. I'll post anything new that I come across.

Thanks for the link . I was lost on what to do , but I am not going to over think it and do a gorilla holding me in the cage with a sign on front saying
" don't feed the human' .
So basically the bottom will be me with the gorilla bottom and the top will be the dummy and the inside will be me with fake legs.
Going to start it tomorrow. Excited for Halloween.:p
