Giant Robot Block Head Costume


Just the thing for Halloween.

In the meantime, you could practice by wearing it to school or work.

From the website:


An oversized robot-head topped with an eye-catching gold finish and complete with piercing LED eyes that will leave a lasting impression.

And, not to worry, the interior strap & brace keep everything stable and in place so you can avoid any wardrobe malfunctions.

• Paper, styrofoam, plastic

• Wipe clean

• One size fits all
