All wound up, and ready to dance. The Craunlets suited up in their corrugated robot costumes, and we trekked over to a nearby power supply station to take a handful of photographs. Nathaniel busted out his boom box [also his trick-or-treating candy collector] and the Craunlets broke out their best robotic moves to some eighties electronica. OH BOY. The cuteness, I could barely take it.

They were so unbelievable, that a few people even pulled their cars over to watch, and to also compliment the costumes. Here are some outtakes from their jam session:

The details of their costumes this year just absolutely slay me. They were so thorough in developing their ideas and designs for exactly what they wanted for each of their robots.

I completely dig the metallic retro aesthetic of the costumes and the clunky cardboard forms, so I couldn't resist post-processing a slew of them in black and white. Though I love their sparkly holographic color additions in person, I also quite enjoy the graphic grittiness and reflective quality of these images.
