Wow! Matthew Varas made a pulley-activated chomping Pacman costume, and detailed the build on Make: Projects. It’s exciting to see entries coming in to our Halloween Contest 2011.

A few years back I built a giant Pacman costume at the last minute, but it wasn’t good enough for a tinkerer, so I figured that there had to be a way to make it better. What better than to add a functioning mouth to the costume! Thus started the six week saga of making a giant working Pacman costume and matching ghost.
