Highlight of Halloween 2010

Now this is a fantastic story. Joseph DeRose writes in to let us know about a brilliant Halloween costume he built with his Dad for this year's festivities. Don't be turned off by the premise - the pair have built a complete Varia Suit fit for an 11-year-old, complete with a light-and-sound powered arm cannon.

The design of the cannon is especially inspiring, with user-controlled lighting and sound effects taken from the Prime trilogy. It's always worthwhile to see a gaming fan's imagination brought to life in the prop-making world, so be sure to check out where it all begins in these handful of behind-the-scenes videos:

Check out Joseph's homepage for more info about the project.
