Last year was the first time I actually made my costume and i enjoyed it so much that this year I  figured i'd go all out. With Bender being one of my favourite characters on TV I thought he'd be the perfect costume. The body and head are made from sintra frame and styrene skin. The mouth is white mesh fabric on a sintra frame attached with velcro. I used magnets to be able to attach the cigar to the mouth. The domes on the head and the feet are made from 12" globes of the world cut in half. The arms and legs are made from thin styrene covered in duct tape and stuck together with rivets. The antenna is two door stop springs stuck together with a ping pong ball on top and a red blinking LED inside. The eyes were made from a 5" plastic yarn ball holder and they light up using white LEDs. The interior cabinet is made from sintra. Other than that it was a lot of hot glue, rivets and bondo. I'll try and come up with a more complete instructable in the next few weeks if possible.
Good Sir, you have given these people of Earth an amazing and inspirational recreation of a sarcastic, crude, and surprisingly shiny rear ended robot we all know and love. I have only one request and that this to flatter you by building such an awe-inspiring machine with the help of a step-by-step Instructable. Please give us this and you will forever be thanked. <br> <br>P.S. Amazing build. Although when I build mine I will put a hinged &quot;index&quot; finger on the right hand with a lighter inside. Most likely one of those long BBQ ones and change the trigger to make it easier to use. Lastly use a metal finger as to not melt or catch anything on fire.
PLEASE make an instructable! This is the best Bender costume I've seen yet.
Hey awesome job, I was just wondering where you bought sintra frame for the body from?
http://www.artsupply.com/foamcore/sintraboard.htm<br><br>I used 48&quot; x 96&quot; x 2mm White Sintra PVC Board and 48&quot; x 96&quot; x 3mm Grey Sintra PVC Board<br><br>http://www.usplastic.com/catalog/item.aspx?itemid=22883&amp;catid=715&amp;clickid=searchresults<br><br>I used various thicknesses 0.020&quot;, 0.040&quot;, 0.060&quot; and 0.080&quot;<br><br>The thickest one for the body etc...<br><br>Hope that helps.
Hey- I was wondering- why does the body need to be coated with styrene if the sintra is already grey? Does the sintra have a foamy texture and the styrene looks more like metal? <br>Thanks! <br>Todd <br> <br> <br>
The sintra is a lot stiffer than the styrene so it can't really be used as the skin. I used the sintra purely to make an interior frame and then wrapped the styrene around this.
So basically you made sintra vertical supports that are attached to rings at the top and bottom? Although the top ring would be a cone shape. <br> <br>I was under the impression that the sintra could be molded into the body cone shape using a heat gun- I didn't know if this would work or if the material would get messed up easily due to uneven heating/bending (I have never used this material). <br> <br>Thanks again, <br>Todd
This is the best Bender costume I've seen anywhere. You nailed it with the arm/leg coverings. This thing looks like a studio prop. Great job!
Fantastic job!
pure awsomeness

&quot;I have a dream. A dream of killing all humans.&quot;<br>This is the best Bender suit I've seen yet. Great job man, great job.<br>
That is perfect!!!! Any ideas on how to make they cyclops eye for my daughter who want to be leela?
I would suggest using maybe a 6x- speaker grill spray-painted white. Not sure on the rest of the head but I just thought I'd throw it out there.<br><br>example:<br>http://www.autotoys.com/x/product.php?productid=4723
cool bananas yewwwww best bender ever
Spectacular....
Great, congratulations!
WoW :)
Love it!<br>~~Anna Bender
haha, much neater than mine from last year, good job!<br><br>My tip: an upside water cooler 10 gallon makes an awesome head, you just need to chop the mouth out - i used white mesh painted to see out of too, and got a little carried away with my chest cavity...<a href="http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v77/boma23/ha%20ha/?action=view&current=benderpoint.jpg"><br><br>http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v77/boma23/ha%20ha/?action=view&amp;current=benderpoint.jpg</a><br><br><br>
Fantastic - the best detail is the contents of the abdomen. Priceless!
OH MY GOD I am sincerely impressed! Fantastic work!
simply amazing! That is the most ligit bender i've seen yet, i love how u added the beer fridge lol ... pure awsmness 8D
If you have been having no problems <a href="http://www.cheap-uggs-boots.com/ugg-classic-short/" rel="nofollow"><strong>UGG Classic Short</strong></a> in running or racing, it would be hard to recommend a change of shoe. It is difficult, if not impossible to improve <a href="http://www.cheap-uggs-boots.com/ugg-classic-short/" rel="nofollow"><strong>Classic Short Boots</strong></a> upon a situation in which all is going great. I would advise getting a few pairs of what seem to be your <a href="http://www.cheap-uggs-boots.com/ugg-classic-short/" rel="nofollow"><strong>Classic Short ugg boots</strong></a> favorite shoes before the manufacturer changes the shoe. Historically unannounced changes are often made by manufacturers. This can vary from a subtle change in the cushioning around the heel to a major <a href="http://www.cheap-uggs-boots.com/ugg-classic-short/" rel="nofollow"><strong>Classic Short uggs</strong></a> structural midsole change. Manufacturers have discontinued a model of shoe, only to resume production a few years later <a href="http://www.cheap-uggs-boots.com/ugg-classic-short/" rel="nofollow"><strong>ugg 5825</strong></a> with a line of shoes boasting the same name, but with completely different characteristics.
Can anyone explain me what sintra frame and styrene skin are? I'm italian and I can't find them on the dictionary..<br /> <br /> Thanks to all<br /> <br /> Marco<br /> <br />
<font color="#ff5200"><a href="http://www.artsupply.com/foamcore/sintraboard.htm" rel="nofollow">http://www.artsupply.com/foamcore/sintraboard.htm</a></font><br /> <br /> I used 48&quot; x 96&quot; x 2mm White Sintra PVC Board and 48&quot; x 96&quot; x 3mm Grey Sintra PVC Board <br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.usplastic.com/catalog/item.aspx?itemid=22883&amp;catid=715&amp;clickid=searchresults" rel="nofollow">http://www.usplastic.com/catalog/item.aspx?itemid=22883&amp;catid=715&amp;clickid=searchresults</a><br /> <br /> I used various thicknesses 0.020&quot;, 0.040&quot;, 0.060&quot; and 0.080&quot;<br /> <br /> The thickest one for the body etc...<br /> <br /> Hope that helps.
Oh yes, thank you very much!<br /> <br /> I have just some other questions:<br /> <br /> 1) Isn't the body larger at the top and smaller at the bottom? I mean it looks like a V. Isnt it? if it is, how how you create that effect?<br /> <br /> 2) Are the body top and bottom circles, or are they elliptical? I mean the borders of the body.<br /> <br /> 3) The last one, I think, reading again your description, I think I dont understand how the legs and the arms are made. You talk about &nbsp;think styrene again, but they seem they are made of metal. Is that an effect of the duct tape?<br /> <br /> Thank you again. I hope I can ask you again if I'll need.<br /> <br /> Marco<br />
1)&nbsp;Yep the body is narrower at the bottom than the top. It's basically a partial cone shape and it took some high school geometery to be able to figure out the proper dimensions.<br /> <br /> 2) Yes the body is circular when viewed from above.<br /> <br /> 3)&nbsp;That's&nbsp;right&nbsp;the duct tape is what makes the arm and legs look metalic.
awesome job dude<br /> i would totally make one for halloween<br /> 7/5
Awesomesauce.<br />
nice mame machine.<br />
that's genius, where did you get those labels though, I've been trying to find a printable slurm logo i can wrap around a soda can.<br />
&nbsp;I bought an actual Slurm energy drink in a Spencers at the mall once, maybe you could just buy one there.
I found one of them on the web and&nbsp;the others a i just made up from screen shots in photoshop.
&nbsp;Well done, mate! &nbsp;I've seen a few attempts before, but this is the most convincing Bender I've run across yet! &nbsp;<br /> <br /> I've been trying to get my boyfriend to participate in Halloween for years now, but Bender is the only idea that would ever get him to actually DO IT. &nbsp;So I will be sharing your instructable with him, and hopefully he'll be inspired enough to give it his own spin. &nbsp;Thank you!<br /> <br /> And remember, if you're at a loss for ideas next year, all you need to do is make a magnetic goatee and go as Flexo!<br />
Is this the same Bender from the Phenomenauts show? Awesome costume!<br />
That's too funny that you mention the Phenomenauts robot. I built that about 5-6years ago, and I brought it along when I was doing some special effects for a video they were shooting. I have not worn it again till I rebuilt it for Halloween this year. I made it more steampunk looking and replaced the lightbulb eyes with Battery powered plasma globes.<br />
friggen' awesome!<br />
&nbsp;This is really great dude!
Genius!<br /> Wish I could say the same for Fry.....
Very cool... now let's go steal some cigars.
Awesome!<br /> It looks very like the 'real' one ;)<br /> Congrats<br />
&nbsp;too bad dress up is usually only once a year. &nbsp;if they ever make a futurama movie you should definitely be consulted on the costuming. &nbsp;Awe-some job!
ever thought of putting a mini-flamethrower in the costume so you can get flaming burbs like in the series?<br /> <br /> nicely done BTW<br />
&nbsp;So Awesome. I love this show so much. This is amazing!
Bite my shiny, metal a**!<br /> <br /> This is a great costume!&nbsp; Well done, meatbag.<br />
