A see-through t-shirt, aka the geekiest/best halloween costume ever.

portal t-shirt

I’m not going to a Halloween party this year (I don’t think it’s as big of a deal here in the UK as it is to American folks) but if I were I think I’d attempt something along the lines of this since I love spending far, far too much time making fancy dress costumes. Famed hacker Ben Heck has created an outfit that is probably pretty simple compared to his other projects, a polo shirt with a portal (as in ‘the cake is a lie’ Portal) that makes it appears as if there is a hole in your body. In my head it would be fairly simple to build since it’s ‘just’ a camera and an LCD screen, but I’m sure it’s a lot more complicated that I would imagine. Are any of you guys going to Halloween parties, and if so, what will your costume be?

    The cake isn’t a lie so much as the overall size of the portal. I suppose LCD screens are pricey these days.

    I was looking through the comments and apparently the smaller LCD screen helps create the illusion. Also, bigger screen=bigger batteries. Still, if I made it I’d probably tray and cover myself in 5 screens!
