R2

The rise of the machine, II.

The start of Star Wars galaxy in our house (which still continues). We had just gotten back from a trip for my brother's destination wedding so I didn't have much time to get this done. Again using what's around the house like collected bottle caps in different colours, large plastic bowl from dollar store I used for the head piece, and colour vinyl adhesives from my local alternative art store URBAN SOURCE, this came together quite easily.

I attached the top to his bike helmet by hot glueing packaging styrofoam and ribbon to the inside of the bowl, then tying it to his helmet. R2 still sits in his room years later.

  • What I used
  • Large plastic bowl, poster board, craft felt, straps for shoulders, craft foam, spray paint, vinyl adhesive sheets, bottle caps, silver electric tape, silver spray paint, bike helmet, styrofoam.
