iPod Halloween costumes

iPod fan Jared Winick loves the portable music player so much that he created a fully functional iPod Halloween costume with working display and audio.

“I didn’t just want to be walking around in a box, so I made it a fully functional costume,” writes Winick. “I finally found a good use for a tablet PC, and used that for the display. A rewired USB mouse served as the ‘Forward,’ ‘Reverse,’ ‘Play/Pause’ buttons, and a bit of Java code played and displayed the MP3s. Some battery powered speakers provided the sound. It all worked out well, and I even won the costume contest.”

We’ve also come across a slightly better looking iPod costume (minus the audio capabilities) as well as a very original trio that dressed up as characters from Apple’s “Silhouette” iPod+iTunes TV and print ads.

Wow. That is amazing.

I would call it sad, but I’m too impressed. Somebody has a creative mind.

I agree with Amazed. It’s pretty damn nerdy, but quite awesome. The display is great, and the Java code is awesome too.

This one is from last year, but I still think it’s the best looking iPod costume ever:

There’s even a slot inside for a soda! (Check out the other pictures.)
