That's photographer and huge nerd Tyler Card, who went as a camera for Halloween. Now, going as your profession alone might induce some groans and well-deserved eye rolls, but when you transform yourself into a fully functional human camera? Maybe we take back the "huge nerd" comment. Wait, no we don't. But we do say it in a much more respectful tone.
Utilizing a five-gallon bucket and a whole lot of the artist's best friend (cardboard), Tyler constructed a convincing giant facsimile of a Nikon D3, and everything works. Pressing the shutter release causes the flash to go off, and the resulting photo is displayed on the enormous LCD screen on the back.
"Note: Make sure to delete the memory card of any accidental dick pics from when you need to hit the can."
It's easier to construct than you might think. In 2016, photographer Bryan Troll created his own version, using the mandatory five-gallon bucket and around a hundred bucks' worth of "cardboard, tape, rubber cement, Plexiglas, and spray paint." Oh, plus the thousands of dollars in camera equipment it takes to put the "fun" in "functional." But can you really put a price on the joy that such an amazing costume will bring to your friends and fellow partygoers?
The answer is "yes." Yes, you can. And it's "about 20 bucks."
