Halloween is drawing rather near, and for those of you who celebrate this holiday in a big way, your costume is probably already on your mind. If you are still looking at options, here is one thing that can be a source of inspiration: a QR code costume.
Sure, QR codes are nothing new. You see them more and more every day. You even see QR code tattoos! This guy did a bit of work to get his QR code costume done, though, and it seems but right to give him a bit of attention.1
As you will see when you scroll down, this QR code costume is very simple, and with simplicity comes both the good and the bad. The good is that you will not have to work that hard to get your costume done. If you set aside a day for this, you probably will have enough time left over to go for a stroll in the park. The bad is that it may be a little too simple!
Anyhow, Rob – the creator of the QR code costume – started with these.
Of course, he had to use a QR code generator, which you can find online for free. He used the QR code generator from the ZXing Project, but you can use whatever you want. He then set of with a paintbrush and some black paint to get his project going.
In the end, he got this.
One cool thing about the costume is that you will not get all suffocated inside a massive complicated get up. Of course, you have to make sure you cut holes for your eyes and nose so you don’t end up banging your head against walls and not being able to breathe. Another plus is that you can actually use your costume to do a little promotion. What better way to promote your site or whatever it is you want to promote at a Halloween party?
